ARLINGTON, Texas – Doug Free didn't offer much insight Wednesday into his future in Dallas or his contract situation.

The right tackle fielded questions about the Home Run Derby the Cowboys participated in at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, but he spoke quietly and stayed brief when the questions turned to football.

"Really nothing to talk about right now," he said. "A lot going on and stuff, but I'm just happy to be here."

Only a few options remain for the Cowboys in free agency. Veteran Eric Winston is still available, but Tyson Clabo already signed with the Dolphins and Bryant McKinnie rejoined the Ravens.  Both players are set to make about half of what Free would make on his current deal this year.

The Cowboys have expressed interest in keeping Free at a reduced rate, after a down year for the right tackle ended in a rotation with Jermey Parnell at the position. Free, who's scheduled to make $7 million this season, stayed mum when asked about potentially taking a pay cut. [embedded_ad]

"I don't know anything about it," Free said. "I'm really not here for that. I'm just here to talk about Reliant and having some fun hitting some home runs."

When it came to his future in Dallas, Free said "you never know what might happen."
