Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said Tuesday that he recently met with Zack Martin‘s agent, Tom Condon, in recent weeks about a potential extension. However, Jones admits that they “just aren’t there yet.”
“We’ll continue to roll up our sleeves and go to work on it,” Jones said of an extension for Martin, per Todd Archer. “We understand this is the hard part of our business. Nobody wants to have Zack signed more than we do. We think he’s one of the best offensive linemen in the league. Certainly, we think the best offensive guard in the league (and) should be paid accordingly. It’s just a matter of structures and by how much and that type of thing. No one respect what Zack has done for this team more than we do.”

- Bob Condotta says he would be “stunned” if the Seahawks also signed WR Dez Bryant to a contract.
- According to Condotta, Seattle likely views Marshall as a complementary player whose could have value in the red zone, but he isn’t a long-term option.
- Brady Henderson points out that the Seahawks appear to be looking at larger receivers to replace TE Jimmy Graham in their offense, which could explain why they went with Marshall and Jaron Brown.
