General manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday he wants to sign Sensabaugh to a long-term deal, and both sides are talking about doing it.
The Cowboys placed a second-round tender on Sensabaugh worth $1.8 million for the 2010 season. The restricted free agent had until June 1 to sign his tender.
"We've had discussions about [a long-term deal]," Conner said Thursday. "However, if he does [sign the tender], we're still very confident and optimistic that a long-term deal for both sides is a top priority."
