Cowboys reach deal with Hamlin

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have reached a deal with
safety Ken Hamlin on a six-year contract extension worth $39 million. About $15 million of that is guaranteed.

As the Cowboys' designated franchise player, Hamlin had until yesterday to reach a long-term deal or else play the 2008 season under a one-year contract for $4.4 million.

Hamlin had a career-high five interceptions and 102 tackles last season -- his first in Dallas after four years in Seattle.
