Dec 25, 2008 3:20 PM

On Wednesday the Cowboys finally signed right tackle Marc Colombo to a four-year contract worth $22 million, which includes up to $11.5 million guaranteed. Colombo was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, but he is now signed through 2012. "I just love being a Dallas Cowboy," Colombo said. "I love everything about it. I definitely didn't want to leave my offensive line. I'd die for those guys. The thought of going to some other team and another line wasn't an option for me. I'm glad the Cowboys stepped up to the plate. I thank them very much."
