Cowboys pick up the 2015 option on Tyron Smith

Of all the decisions about 2011 first-rounders and fifth-year options, the Cowboys had one of the easiest.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas, the Cowboys are picking up the option for 2015 for left tackle Tyron Smith.

This was one of the biggest no-brainers of the group, as Smith has become a cornerstone left tackle.

The option year is worth $10.039 million next year, but they’d like to get him signed to a long-term deal before then.

That’s still a bargain, considering the first four years of his deal were worth $12.496 million combined.

    And at only 23 years old, he is the future at left tackle for years to come.

    He’s a stud.

    Most importantly, he’s only a year older (23) than some of the top guys coming out this year.

    Now let’s go get Barr/Ealy and see if we can lock Easley down in the 2nd. Watch the D go from worst to top 10 in a year.

    He’s good but that defense is the worst.Can’t get any worse if you’re ranked 32nd!

    Left side is solid. He won’t get away anytime soon.
