Cowboys Don’t Pick Up Morris Claiborne’s Option

In a less than surprising move, the Dallas Cowboys have decided not to pick up the fifth-year option on Morris Claiborne’s rookie contract (via ESPN). Claiborne, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, has struggled with injuries and inconsistency during his three-year NFL career.

Cowboys Will Not Exercise 5th-year Option on Claiborne

There is a deadline approaching for Morris Claiborne on May 3rd and it is the option for the Cowboys to give him a 5th-year on his rookie contract. The 5th-year option is only applicable to players selected in the 1st round. The Cowboys would in essence be guaranteeing Claiborne a roster spot and a whopping $11.1 million for the 2016 season, he’s done zero to earn such a deal...

Why You Shouldn’t Be Discouraged About Morris Claiborne

It’s easy to be disappointed in Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne. And I get it. The Cowboys spent (essentially) a high first and second round pick on him and he has failed to live up to expectations. In two seasons, he has only two interceptions and has missed seven games due to multiple injuries. And when he has played, he hasn’t looked like the 6th overall pick...
