    Boys would love refusal option on free agents

    IRVING, Texas -- With it appearing as if the old free-agency formula will return whenever a new collective bargaining agreement is reached, teams are hoping they can have a second bite at the apple, so to speak, when it comes to keeping their own players, according to this report.

    Players with four or more years of experience would be unrestricted free agents after that limit was raised to six years in 2010. Teams are hoping to have three right-of-first-refusal options, which would be tremendous news for the Cowboys.

    We have been through the Doug Free talk since the news broke earlier in the week, but who else would the Cowboys possibly put the de-facto transition tag on?

    In addition to Free, Alex Barron, Stephen Bowen, Chris Greisen, Jason Hatcher, Sam Hurd, Kyle Kosier, Gerald Sensabaugh, Marcus Spears and Leon Williams would be unrestricted free agents. Barron, Greisen and Williams will not be back. Hurd is looking for a chance to play a bigger role on an offense, so his return would be unlikely...
