Cowboys sign last of draft picks in DE Lawrence
IRVING, Texas (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have signed defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, their second-round draft pick and the last of the selections to agree to terms.
Lawrence signed a four-year, $5.5 million deal Wednesday with $3.9 million guaranteed and a $2.3 million signing bonus. The Cowboys traded up to get him with the 34th pick.
Dallas is trying to replace franchise sacks leader DeMarcus Ware, who was released in March. Lawrence has been working at Ware's old position at right defensive end, the most important pass-rushing spot.
Lawrence had 20 sacks in two seasons at Boise State.
The Cowboys finish their three-day minicamp Thursday and open training camp July 24 in Oxnard, California.
