The Dallas Cowboys held an option on Wade Phillips’ contract for 2010.
As expected, owner Jerry Jones has decided to pick up the option.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN and Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, Jones also has added two years to the deal.
So it’s a three-year contract (or a two-year extension), which puts Phillips under contract through 2012.
And, as we mentioned a little bit ago, the devil will be in the details. For example, the final year of the new contract might also be an option year, which would allow the Cowboys to walk away with no financial obligation.
Regardless, Wade will be back next year.
And Giants, Redskins, and Eagles fans suddenly feel a little bit better about their day.
