Akwasi Agrees To 4 Year Deal With Cowboys

The Cowboys have agreed to terms with fourth-round pick, safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah today.

Owusu-Ansah’s agent, Nate Haber reported the news via Twitter:

Congrats to client Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (4th rd pick) and the Dallas Cowboys. We have agreed to terms on a 4-yr deal.

Haber said he expects his client to sign the contract on Thursday and report on time for the start of training camp, which begins on Saturday in San Antonio.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but unconfirmed reports say that he will earn base salaries of $320,000 (2010), $405,000 (2011), $490,000 (2012) and $575,000 (2013).

The Cowboys still have some work to do however as Dez Bryant (first round) Sean Lee (second round), Jamar Wall (sixth round) and Josh Price-Brent (supplemental pick) all have yet to sign.

Cowboys Fine With What They Got

It appears as if the Dallas Cowboys are content with the current roster. Jerry Jones must know something the rest of the Dallas Cowboys Nation doesn’t. Dallas has not brought in any big name free agents or any free agents for that matter to Valley Ranch for even a visit with the exception of Zach Thomas. With those of you content with the current roster let me say this, this roster hasn’t changed much since the divisional round playoff loss against the Giants in January. All the starters that started on both sides of the ball are still there. There have been no major upgrades so far this off-season. All we have really done is signed our own free agents. Flozell “2 full starts per game” Adams got a 6 yr deal done before the start of free agency and Ken Hamlin got the franchise tag. Marion Barber and Chris Canty both got tendered. So, any of you excited so far? Personally, the loss against the Giants left a real sour taste in my mouth. It proved that we were weak in some areas and needed upgrades in others. So far, nothing has happened and I am worried guys. I can’t believe I am saying this but I am not excited so far about going into next season with basically the same team as last year. I’m not. If Terrell Owens or Terry Glenn are injured in 2008 we become an average team. If Marion Barber goes down we have an average team. Heaven forbid, if Tony Romo goes down we have a descent team. So LoneStarStruckers, are you guys fine with basically going into 2008 with the same team as last year? Let me know?
