NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday evening that the Cowboys and star pass-rusher DeMarcus Lawrence have agreed “on basic parameters” of a five-year, $105 million contract extension. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money and will make Lawrence the highest paid non-quarterback with $31.1 million for the 2019 season. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Lawrence for the second consecutive year. However, the star defensive end had no intention of playing under the $20.5 million tag again. He has waited on surgery to repair a shoulder injury until the new deal was finished. Lawrence has been one of the most dominant pass-rushers in the league over the last two seasons with 25 total sacks and 67 QB hits in 32 games. Now he has a brand new deal to show for it.
