The dispute between Cowboys DLs Davon Coleman and Greg Hardy reportedly escalated when Coleman called Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy, of course, is facing a ten-game NFL suspension for domestic violence. The argument allegedly began when Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a conditioning drill. Coleman followed up by getting personal with Hardy. The two defensive linemen were separated by teammates, and the confrontation never got physical. This is very likely to prove a non-story.

Suspended Cowboys RE Greg Hardy reportedly got into a verbal altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during conditioning drills on Friday.

Although it's being puffed up by multiple media outlets, the story -- linked below -- doesn't seem like a big deal at all. "Verbal altercations" happen all the time in competitive environments. Hardy and Coleman reportedly had to be separated after Hardy questioned Coleman's effort during a drill. Coleman's agent "said it was only a verbal argument and not a physical fight."

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, "some smart people" believe Cowboys RE Greg Hardy's ten-game suspension could be reduced "anywhere from two to six games" following his appeal.

A multi-game reduction like that would be a huge win for both Hardy and the Cowboys. "We'll see," cautioned Schefter. The NFL initially came down hard on Hardy, and his plan is to appeal the suspension immediately. When Dallas signed Hardy, the team only expected him to miss the first four to six games.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys "at most" expected RE Greg Hardy to be slapped with a six-game suspension.

RapSheet says the Cowboys "thought" Hardy's ban would be only four games. Instead, Roger Goodell came down hard on Hardy, suspending him ten games and threatening to ban Hardy from the NFL for life should he incur one more strike. The NFL's investigation reportedly found that Hardy physically abused Nicole Holder on four separate occasions. As the Cowboys have a bye in Week 6, Hardy's ten-game suspension will sideline him until Week 12.

NFL suspended Cowboys RE Greg Hardy 10 games for conduct detrimental to the league.

Hardy spent all but one week last season on the Commissioner's Exempt List. He'll miss a total of 25 games, making him eligible to return Week 12 against Carolina. Hardy had domestic violence charges against him dropped in February, but the NFL is suspending him under the Personal Conduct Policy, which allows them to give him more than the expected six games as a first-time offender. Roger Goodell told Hardy that he is potentially now one strike away from a lifetime ban. The Cowboys did protect themselves financially by tying up $9.25 million of Hardy's one-year, $11.3 million deal in per-game roster bonuses. Still, not having Hardy for over half the season is a major setback for Dallas, which now figures to attack defensive end early in the draft.

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones didn't sound open to the idea of re-working CB Orlando Scandrick's contract.

"He’s under contract, but not unlike a lot of players, they’d like to have more," Jones said. "If something makes sense for us to add some years or do something then we’ll take a look at that, but we just re-did Orlando’s contract a couple years ago." Scandrick, set to earn just $1.5 million in 2015, didn't show up for voluntary workouts earlier this week. He's signed cheaply through 2018.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones says the team's "No. 1 goal" is to sign franchise player Dez Bryant to a long-term contract.

"You have to be patient," Jones said. By most accounts, the sides have made little progress. 85 days remain to hammer out an agreement.

Cowboys re-signed restricted free agent Lance Dunbar to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

It's just a formality as no one was going to sign Dunbar to an offer sheet -- even at the lowest possible tender. A poor man's Shane Vereen/Darren Sproles kind of player, Dunbar will compete for passing-down snaps. He garnered just 2.9 touches per game last year with DeMarco Murray dominating the backfield.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick was not present for the beginning of spring workouts.

These strength and conditioning workouts are voluntary, but Scandrick appears to be making a statement. He's due just $1.5 million this season and is coming off a tremendous season that saw him finish as a top-10 corner in PFF's grades. Scandrick reportedly has a $500,000 de-escalator clause for missing the workouts, so he obviously believes a new deal is coming.

The Cowboys have until May 3 to exercise Morris Claiborne's fifth-year option.

It's going to be hard to judge Claiborne (torn patellar tendon) while he's out of commission. Jerry Jones said in January that Claiborne has done enough to warrant a fifth year, but that hasn't been evident on the field.
Apr 19 - 9:02 AM

Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (knee) expects to be ready for training camp.

Claiborne will miss all of OTAs recovering from knee surgeries. He was recently cleared to run on flat ground, and will need to avoid setbacks to return by the start of camp. Despite coming off three ineffective and injury-prone seasons, Claiborne’s fully-guaranteed $2.6M salary locks him into a 2015 roster spot.
Apr 18 - 2:33 PM

A dispute between Dez Bryant and his advisor could be holding up contract negotiations.

Bryant reportedly wants to terminate his relationship with longtime advisor David Wells. The Cowboys want Wells to stay involved so Bryant can focus solely on football and not worry about off-field distractions. Wells was sent a cease-and-desist letter from Bryant's attorney back in February.

The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person suspects Cowboys RE Greg Hardy gets "at least" a six-game suspension for his Personal Conduct Policy violation.

Person is just guessing, but this was reportedly the expectation among NFL teams before free agency began. SI's Peter King previously passed along whispers of a forthcoming six-game ban. Per the NFL's new domestic violence policy, first-time offenders are suspended six games as a baseline. Hardy missed all but one game last season, but was never formally suspended.
Apr 16 - 3:42 PM

The Cowboys don't plan to pick up CB Morris Claiborne's fifth-year option.

The fifth-year option would be worth the average of the top 10 NFL salaries at the position, which is expected to be more than $11 million. Claiborne obviously isn't worth anything near that as he's been a grossly ineffective disaster since going sixth overall in 2012 and is coming off a torn patellar tendon.
Apr 13 - 10:59 AM

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer believes CB Brandon Carr will stay with the Cowboys, but not at his current salary.

"I believe Brandon Carr will be on the roster when the regular season begins," Archer said. "Do I think he will make $8 million in 2015? No." Carr's agent has been adamant his client will not accept a pay cut, but that stance could change as the offseason wears on. Big-money contracts are hard to find post draft, and Carr will likely be better off taking less to stay in Dallas than testing his value on the open market. Dallas could save $8 million in cap space this season by making Carr a post-June 1 cut.
