Henry Melton has signed with the Dallas Cowboys. The deal is a for 1 year with a 3 year team option. The reason for this is probably due to the fact that Melton tore his ACL last year. If I understand it right, the Cowboys can decide after 1 year if they still want Melton on the team and if they do, then the 3 years would pay Melton some good money. The incentives for having a good first year of his contract basically would reward his with a big pay day for the next 3 years of his contract. Anyways, more importantly, Melton is out of the Seattle Seahawks radar. This could help get Jared Allen though. The Cowboys were also interested in Allen, but wouldn’t have enough money to sign both Melton and Allen. Go Hawks!
