The Dallas Cowboys and DeMarcus Lawrence are set to open talks on a contract.

"It's great for them to prioritize me as being a Cowboy," said Lawrence, who's at the Pro Bowl in Orlando this week. "I'm not worried about it. I'm gonna let my agent worry about that part. ... I believe and trust in him 100 percent to get the job done."

Lawrence posted 14.5 sacks in a contract year.

"I would imagine that they're probably not just letting us get to free agency and leave Dallas," said agent David Canter.

"It's really up to them to want to do a deal that's in line with what the market is for a young, ascending, elite franchise-caliber defensive end," Canter said. "Whatever that number ends up being remains to be seen. But I do imagine and believe that we'll have multiple conversations over the next month or so. I think it's early right now."
