The Cowboys are expected to retain restricted free-agent WRs Miles Austin and Sam Hurd, with one or both signing their $1.54 million tender offer by Monday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The Cowboys can reduce the $1.54 million offer if the players don’t sign their offer sheets by Friday.
Austin and the Cowboys are working on a multiyear contract extension, the Star-Telegram reports, and the team plans to use him as the No. 2 receiver opposite No. 1 Roy Williams.
Austin had been courted by the Jets, but he isn’t expected to sign an offer sheet from another team by Friday’s deadline. The Jets reportedly balked at giving up a second-round draft pick as compensation for signing Austin.
