Defensive backs Xavier Woods and Jourdan Lewis will receive raises of roughly $1.5 million in 2020 through the proven-performance escalator available to draft picks in Rounds 3-7. Since both played more than 35 percent of the snaps on average in their first three seasons, their base salary will jump to the original restricted free agent tender, which will be about $2.2 million this season.

Sean Lee has made a decision on his status in 2020: “I'm playing,” he told ESPN.com. While a return to the Cowboys for an 11th season is not out of the question, he is set to be a free agent in March. Lee, who turns 34 in July, played in every game last season and was credited by the coaches with 109 tackles, which was second on the team.

The Cowboys defense has not been difficult to figure the last few years, but Mike Nolan sounds like he will be introducing more. “I believe if you give yourself too much of doing one thing, that's easy for the best quarterbacks to dissect and take advantage of,” he said. “I do believe you have to have a good mix between man and zone … You don't want to create so much volume that you really don't have an identity but you have to have some kind of variety in order to be successful.”
