Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the agent for nose tackle Jay Ratliff have both indicated that they think it would make sense to work out a new contract. Now that contract is just about done.
A league source tells PFT that that as of last night, Ratliff and the Cowboys were nearly done on a five-year, $40 million contract with $18 million guaranteed.
The deal could already be agreed to, barring an unexpected snag last night.
Ratliff has two seasons left on the five-year, $20.9 million contract he signed at the end of the 2007 season. He has started every game and made the Pro Bowl all three seasons since signing that deal.
