Morris Claiborne Can't Sign With Cowboys Until June
The Dallas Cowboys are waiting for former cornerback Terence Newman's contract to expire on June 1 before signing any of their seven rookie draft picks, including top-pick Morris Claiborne, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Saturday, citing a source. Newman was cut in March, but the $6-million cap figure tied to his contract will not come off the books until June. The rookie pool for the Cowboys' draft picks is $5.714 million. The team currently has about $2.14 million in salary cap space available. The Cowboys have enough money to sign all their picks except top Claiborne, for whom the Cowboys traded up to the St. Louis' Rams No. 6-overall pick in April's NFL draft, according to the newspaper.
