Michael Gallup not superstitious about No. 13
Michael Gallup is the only draft pick who hasn’t reached a deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys reached a four-year deal with $11.847 million in guarantees for first-round pick Leighton Vander Esch on Friday, as the organization conducts its annual rookie minicamp at The Star.
The Cowboys also have agreements with seven other players selected in this year’s draft – Connor Williams (second round), Dorance Armstrong Jr. (fourth), Dalton Schultz (fourth), Mike White (fifth), Chris Covington (sixth), Cedrick Wilson (sixth) and Bo Scarbrough (seventh).
Gallup, the third-round selection, is the only player without a deal in place, but that will get done eventually. Third-round picks typically take longer because they have more negotiating leeway than most draft picks under the collective bargaining agreement. Most picks are subject to slotted money.
Gallup is taking part in this week’s minicamp and smiled about his decision to go with No. 13.
“Maybe [it’s unlucky] for other people, but it’s not going to be for me. I’m not superstitious,” Gallup said.
