The Cowboys have picked up the fifth-year option on defensive back Byron Jones. The move was actually made last Friday. Jones is moving to cornerback in 2018 after spending the last two seasons at safety. The option is worth $6.2 million and is guaranteed only for injury. Since the new collective bargaining agreement, the only first-round pick to not have the option picked up was Morris Claiborne (2012).

A tiny oral history: Boo, Eagles, boo!

This weekend, former Cowboys great Drew Pearson will again be a part of the Dallas draft. But it's highly unlikely he'll be able to top last year's viral troll play he made in Eagles fans' faces.

Dealing with an arthritic knee condition, tight end James Hanna felt it was time to think about his long-term health in his decision to retire. “The dream was to play for the Cowboys,” Hanna said. “I don't know how many people actually do what they say they're going to do as like a 13 year old, but I consider myself to be extremely lucky in that sense. Also the college I went to (Oklahoma), I feel like I met my goals. It would've been nice to have more stats and obviously I could've done more things, but I'm proud of what I accomplished.”

The Cowboys will place James Hanna on the reserve/retired list as the tight end could not get over a serious knee condition that troubled him for most of the last two seasons, according to sources. Hanna was not involved in the early part of the team's offseason program.

Garrett: Releasing Dez a 'challenging situation'

While Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that he'll always love Dez Bryant as a player and a person, he said the decision to release Bryant was in the team's best interest. Bryant would have counted $16.5 million against the salary cap this season.

Cowboys captains Dak Prescott, Jason Witten and Sean Lee were asked about Dez Bryant's comments to NFL Network that “Garrett guys,” and captains played a part in the receiver's release on Tuesday. All three echoed roughly the same message. “All I know is that I loved playing with him and like anything any type of breakup can be tough,” Lee said. “But I know he's going to be dominant and play the way he can. We can't get into that (talk). We've got to move forward.”

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett made his first comments since the release of Dez Bryant last Friday at an event honoring Emmitt Smith and his wife, Pat, for their charity work. “Dez Bryant has been a great player for this franchise during his time here. Certainly a playmaker, a difference maker. A guy that we all love. Love him as a player, as a person and that will never change. It's a challenging situation. A lot of different factors go into these kinds of decisions and again the guide post for all of this is: What's in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys? And that's why we made this decision. Wish Dez nothing but the best going forward."
