DeMarcus Lawrence refusing to sign franchise tender with Cowboys again

Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence will not sign the franchise tag if tendered again, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Lawrence will likely be tagged again if the two sides don't reach a long-term agreement by March 5, which would make mid-July as the real deadline. He turns 27 in April and would be due $20.5 million in 2019.

Lawrence recorded 61 tackles (40 solo) with 11 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 1 interception, and 1 pass deflection last season.
