The Dallas Cowboys have tagged defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. This has stopped Lawrence from becoming a free agent on March 13.

This is the second straight year that the Cowboys have used the franchise tag on Lawrence. However, he has previously said that he does not plan on signing it.

The two sides will now have until June 15th to work out a long-term agreement. Unless a multi-year extension can be reached, he will play out a one-year contract should he sign the offer.

Lawrence could make $20 million under a franchise tag in 2019. He made $17.1 million under the tag during the 2018 season.

The 26-year-old Aiken, South Carolina native — who is nicknamed “Tank” — has spent the last five seasons with the Cowboys. He appeared in 16 games with 15 starts in 2018.

He had 64 tackles, including 15 tackles for a loss and 23 quarterback hits. He also had 10.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 1 pass deflection.

He appeared in two playoffs games for the team this season. He had nine tackles, including three tackles for a loss and one quarterback hit.
