The Cowboys deal with DeMarcus Lawrence is nearly done, NFL Media reports, with the parameters in place on a five-year deal worth $105 million.

PFT reported earlier today the sides were nearing a deal.

He will average $21 million per season.

Khalil Mack averages $23.5 million a season to lead all pass rushers in yearly average, with Von Miller at $19.1 million per season. Defensive end Trey Flowers left New England to sign a five-year, $90 million deal with Detroit earlier this offseason.

The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Lawrence for a second consecutive year, but the defensive end had no plans to sign the $20.5 million tag for 2019 and has postponed shoulder surgery until he got a new deal.

Lawrence, 26, has made 25 sacks and six forced fumbles in the past two seasons.

UPDATE 6:58 p.m. ET: Todd Archer of ESPN reports it is a five-year, $105 million deal with $65 million guaranteed. Lawrence will receive a $25 million signing bonus and is set to make $31.1 million in total money in 2019.
