The Dallas Cowboys are going to have to make tough decisions next week, as free agency starts. But today, they were able to keep one of their offensive lineman, before he would have hit the market.

The team has announced the signing of right tackle Doug Free to a three-year contract extension. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Besides worrying about signing wide receiver Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray, both free agents, the Cowboys reportedly had Free atop their wish list, as well.

He’s regarded as one of the top right tackles in the league the past two seasons. In addition, he’s also a leader in the locker room.

The starting offensive lineman will stay together for at least one more season. While Free is staying put, the team will not let free agent Jeremy Parnell sign elsewhere.

Free played in 11 games last season. For the five previous seasons, he played all 16 games from 2009 through 2013.
