OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Tyron Smith has a new contract that will probably make him the most important blocker for the next Dallas quarterback after Tony Romo.
The Pro Bowl left tackle signed an eight-year, $98 million extension Wednesday that pushes the total value of his deal to $110 million over 10 years, locking him up through 2023.
The extension includes a $10 million signing bonus and $40 million in guaranteed money. Smith joins Romo as the only Cowboys with contracts valued at more than $100 million.
