OXNARD, Calif. (105.3 THE FAN) – A few months ago, Pro Bowl offensive tackle Tyron Smith purchased a home in anticipation of being a Cowboy for life.

Smith now has his home, has his contract and has that life. The Cowboys have agreed with the 23-year-old star on an eight-year extension through 2023, with sources close to the negotiations putting the total value of the deal in excess of $108 million.

The base salary is moved near the vet’s minimum, and the signing bonus is as relatively small at $10 million — likely a cap-friendly consideration as Dallas works to secure a new deal for fellow young standout Dez Bryant.

Smith, selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, is already a premier player of whom coach Jason Garrett says, “Simply does everything right.”

In that he had two years remaining on his existing contract (counting the 2015 fifth-year option the Cowboys picked up this spring), Dallas tells its done right by its cap and its player.

And Tyron Smith has done well for himself, too.
