Dallas Cowboys six-time All-Pro guard and team captain Zack Martin is considering not reporting to training camp because of his unhappiness with his contract and the team’s lack of interest in restructuring it, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Schefter adds that Martin believes he’s “woefully underpaid” in comparison to the other offensive lineman in the NFL.
Martin is set to make roughly $7 million less this season than the top-paid guards on the market. Chris Lindstrom of the Falcons and Quenton Nelson of the Colts are at the top of that list at an average of $20 million.
The Cowboys are in the process of working on signing two other Pro Bowlers to contract extension in WR CeeDee Lamb and CB Trevon Diggs. They would also like to sign right tackle Terence Steele to an extension.
Meanwhile, Martin has been the near perfect Dallas Cowboy. He’s missed just eight games in his career and has been named to the Pro Bowl eight times. The only guard with more Pro Bowl appearances in Dallas Cowboys history is Hall of Fame Larry Allen (9).
