Dallas Cowboys defensive end Demarcus Lawrence is dominating the NFL right now, and, surprisingly, he doesn't appear to care about a probably future contract extension.
has a career-high 8.5 sacks in five games, which leads the NFL.
He's picked the right time to have his best season, considering he is to be a free agent in 2018, noted ESPN.
"We'll talk about that when the time comes," Lawrence said. "I ain't in no rush. I'll just keep racking up my numbers and we just have to get the job done as a team. If the team wins, we all win. That's the main thing."
Lawrence is looking at potentially being one of the most sought-after free agents on the open market. He doesn't turn 26 until next April, however, he has had two back surgeries in the past two years. Thecould put the franchise or transition tag on him to keep him off the market next March. They have a history of re-signing their own players before they can test free agency, but as of now there have not been meaningful discussions.
"I'd love to be a Cowboy for the rest of my life," Lawrence said. "Like I said, that contract talk, I ain't worried about that. I'm worried about getting my job done and making sure we come out with the W."
Lawrence had eight sacks in 2015. He had just one sack in nine games last season because of a four-game suspension to start the season and a back that required another surgery. He is healthy now and the proof is in his production.
