Tyron Smith: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)He sat out Wednesday's practice, and with right tackle Doug Free already sidelined the Cowboys will do everything they can to ensure Smith is able to play.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Smith, who was named to his first Pro Bowl last season, had the fifth-year option of his rookie contract picked up by the Cowboys in May. That ensured Smith would remain in Dallas through the 2015 season, but after signing his wealthy extension worth $40 million guaranteed Wednesday, Smith will be under contract through 2023 and also collect a $10 million signing bonus. The 23-year-old has missed just one game during his three year career thus far, starting the other 47 contests and conceding just 14 sacks. Now, with Tony Romo coming off back surgery, Smith will protect his blindside for the foreseeable future as the foundation of Dallas' revamped offensive line unit.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Pro Bowl left tackle is heading into the final year of his rookie contract, and even at the $10 million Smith will now get paid in 2015, he's a bargain for the Cowboys.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Young stud left tackle had some growing pains in 2012 and got flagged for 11 penalties, but didn't allow a sack in the entire second half. Smith will continue to provide excellent protection for Tony Romo's blind side for the foreseeable future.
2011 first round pick lived up to his billing as a rookie and will move over to left tackle this season. Tony Romo's new best friend still has some learning to do, but Smith has the upside to be a force on the Cowboys' offensive line for a long, long time.
The Cowboys' first round pick gets immediately plugged in at right tackle, and should be an improvement over Marc Colombo. The running game especially should notice the difference, with the far more mobile Smith pulling off the line and blocking downfield.
