Henry Melton: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Melton's base contract with the Cowboys is for one year at $5 million, but includes a three-year, $24 million option if he's still on the roster in March 2015, the Dallas Morning News reports. "Itís a fair deal in the first year while he comes back from ACL surgery," Jordan Woy, Melton's agent, said, "then Pro Bowl-type money moving forward."

The structure also gives the perennially cap-strapped Cowboys an out next year if they decide he's not worth it. If Melton is healthy though, there's no reason to think he can't have another productive season replacing Jason Hatcher in the middle of the Dallas D-line.
Melton (knee) agreed to a multi-year deal with the Cowboys on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Melton tweeted from his personal Twitter account on Tuesday that "I can't wait to begin the next chapter in my life with a star on my helmet," suggesting that this is pretty much a done deal. Melton suffered a torn ACL in Week 3 of 2013, but is expected to be ready for practices in early May. Melton's choice of Dallas reunites him with Rod Marinelli, the Dallas defensive coordinator who was also the coordinator with the Bears.
The Bears would like to re-sign Melton, who is working his way back from a torn ACL, ESPN.com reports. "We do want to bring back Henry and we'll work through that process," GM Phil Emery said Thursday. "He's made progress. He's made positive progress."

2012

The sky continues to be the limit for Melton, as the coaching staff cannot stop singing his praises. While he did seem to disappear at times last year, a full offseason can only further his development this year.

2011

Melton showed impressive flashes in 2010 giving the Bears high hopes for the new season. Consequently, Melton is lining up as the starting under tackle for Bears during camp, a position which the team is suddenly very deep at.
