PRO FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NFL : Cowboys Expect to Open Season Without Smith

Associated Press

The Dallas Cowboys are coming closer to writing off Emmitt Smith for their season opener in Washington on Sept. 6.

"My instincts tell me Emmitt isn't going to be here," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.

The Super Bowl winners and the two-time rushing champion are $1.6 million apart in a contract dispute. Smith is asking for $4 million, and the Cowboys are offering $2.4 million.


Running back Ronnie Harmon ended his holdout and signed a three-year contract with the San Diego Chargers.
