The Cowboys will tender restricted free agent defensive lineman David Irving, but they still have not determined whether to place a first- or second-round tender on him, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.
A first-round tender is $4.3 million, while a second-round tender is $3 million but increases the chances another team could present Irving with an offer sheet.
Irving, 24, had seven sacks in eight games last season. He missed four games while serving a suspension for performance enhancing drugs and four others with a concussion.

The Jets could be hoping to get running back Saquon Barkley at No. 3, with defensive end Bradley Chubb being viewed as an acceptable fallback. If just one quarterback is taken in the first two picks, they’re guaranteed to get one of the two top non-quarterbacks. If it’s bang-bang one-two quarterbacks (and don’t be shocked if the Bills now move up to No. 2 with the Giants to get a quarterback), the Jets will get Barkley.

Other factors support this possible strategy. First, the Jets signed Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater becomes, potentially, the young quarterback who is evaluated this year with the possibility of becoming the starter in 2019. Second, G.M. Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles may feel compelled to win now. Drafting and stashing a quarterback with the third overall pick won’t help that cause; drafting an impact er who’ll start Week One at another position will.
