Another one of the interesting NFL Rumors has surfaced on Friday afternoon that the Dallas Cowboys and their top draft choice CB Morris Claiborne are getting real close to a deal. The negotiations have been ongoing and you would think that the Cowboys have been wanting to get a deal done as quick as possible. Claiborne has insisted that he is not holding out. He has been to all the workouts and claims he will not miss anytime due to the contract talks.
Currently 8 of the top 10 picks have not signed yet and this is mainly because of the language of the contracts. The NFL teams are concerned with how much of the guaranteed money they will have to pay if the player is cut and signs with another team. The teams do not want to be in a situation where they are still paying the full amount when the player is getting paid by another team as well.
Claiborne could end up being the shut down corner that the Cowboys have been lacking for years. I could see Claiborne being at the top of the interception leaders for years to come. Opponents will be forced to throw his way at times with the likes of fellow corners Brandon Carr and Mike Jenkins on the field as well.
The Cowboys need to make this guy happy and hopefully they are close to a deal. Claiborne seems excited to be at camp and seems to be working hard so I do not see these talks lasting much longer.
