Beat writer Jon Machota recently held a chat to discuss all things Cowboys. Here are some highlights.
How soon before Zack Martin gets his extension?
Machota: "Probably sometime during training camp in late July or early August. Travis Frederick and Tyron Smith were in similar situations before Martin. Frederick signed his deal in August. Tyron Smith finalized his in late July. Both were done while the Cowboys were preparing for the upcoming season in California."
What's the over/under for sacks from the Cowboys' defensive line in 2017?
Machota: "This should be Dallas' most talented defensive line since DeMarcus Ware left in 2014. The Cowboys had 36 sacks last year, 31 in 2015 and 28 in 2014. I'll go with 40 sacks in 2017, which would likely put them among the top 10 teams in league if you go by last year's numbers."
How many of the Cowboys rookies - and which ones - do you see getting significant playing time in Week 1?
