Not to mention, he's familiar not only with Dallas but with Ryan, so he'd be a great fit.
      Exactly how I feel...a cheap alternative that knows the defense and can be an upgrade/leader out there, a stop gap obviously. I still have really high hopes that AOA can come along here in the next year or two.

      • I really hope AOA turns into a player, too. I mean, we literally learned nothing about him in his first year. It will be interesting to see how he, Mccray, and Church perform in preseason.

        The latter CB position battles should be good fun, too...assuming we go into camp with what we have there. Not a lot of spots for a bunch of corners, in Alan Ball, Josh Thomas, Bryan Mccann, Chris Randle, and Mario Butler. Even if you disregard the undrafted guys...we should see a nice competition between Ball, Thomas, and Mccann. Bryan Mccann def. showed some flashes last year.

        • LOL! McCann is the little engine that could. I literally wouldn't be surprised if Ryan gives him a bunch of playing time.

          As it is...our Secondary situation looks bleak, but I think one good safety signing in Weddle or even Elam will change it for the better.
          We have some young corners with a lot of promise. If Jenkins can get back to form, Scandrick continues to play well, and we can restructure Newman's contract I think it'll be a good mix of young talent and veteran leadership.

          • We def. need two safeties. Now that I'm a little less wary of our cash situation...were going to have to do it. What's the alternative? Starting AOA, Church, or Mccray opposite Elam, possibly? eww. Signing two starting safeties in an off-season never sounds like a good idea. But it may have to be done. Luckily, Elam knows the schematics, if he was one of those signings. It still doesnt sound very logical to me. Hell, you dont see a lot of teams going into a season with two new starting safeties in general. But that's where we're headed. Been neglecting the position for years.

            As for Newman, a restructure would be nice, given his cap figure. But isnt necessary, given the money we've cleared. He'll be back regardless, unless they pulled Aso out of their asses. Releasing him, just creates another daunting hole to fill.

              I'd be scared if we released Newman. Even though he's not the player he once was a few years ago, he's still valuable to our team and needed at this point. We really need to do a better job addressing our secondary in the draft. We've done a terrible job of drafting secondary in recent years.

              • Well hopefully...Felix and crew run wild, Tyron Smith turns out to be a stud, Bowen beasts at DE, Spencer gets his act together at OLB, and Jenkins/Scandrick prove beastly once again. Then maybe, maybe, we'll finally draft a S within the first two rounds.

                Sad thing is, we could have gone safety in the 1st round for a good 5 years now.

                • Eagles have decided to let all of their 15 unrestricted FAs walk.

                  Guards...Nick Cole, Reggie Wells, and Max Jean-Gilles would all fit in Dallas nicely. Cole and Jean-Gilles were more casualties to a schematic line change. But they fit in with us. If we decide to go a little cheaper at RG...Cole and Jean-Gilles should be two cheaper, youthful otions.

                  edit...We were the first team on the phone with Abram Elam today. Expect for him to be a Cowboy again fairly soon. Maybe not tonight, but soon enough.

                  • Elam and Jean-Giles would be solid pick ups. I'd be more then okay with that.

                    Anybody know anything about this Dan Bailey kid? How is he?

                    Comment


                    • He's solid. Won the Lou Groza award last year. (Nation's Top Kicker)

                      He hit on 27-31 last year and he can hit from 50+, but isnt a boomer. Buehler should have his hands full, though. The fact that the tee has been moved up on kick offs should help Bailey's chances.

                      I still would like to get Blair Walsh in the draft next year...he's my favorite kicker prospect since Ryan Succop. Walsh is the best kicker prospect in years. His leg strength is ridiculous and it seems like he can never miss. He's legit as they come and I want him. Unless Bailey works out, which he very may will. Because he's very solid in his own right. But Walsh is ass sexy as a K prospect can get. Has a chance to go fairly early for kicker.

                      • Dallas is looking to re-sign Hurd, but apparently he has received interest from several teams. Should be interesting to see how this develops. I could see myself being happy regardless...since he's looking at a larger role either way, more than likely. Good for Sam.

                        • I don't know why everybody wants Columbo around as a back-up. He sucks when he's in the game, and is only going to be worse this year, where is the upside in him as a back-up? He's just a body. He gets his ass kicked around the edge every single play, there is not one good quality about him being on the team period. I would take anybody you can name over him, he's finished.



                          Very excited seeing these cuts, this is why I wasn't worried about losing Free, wasn't worth talking about to me. When is the last time Jerry let a big time, in house talent walk for free in his prime? Not his style, especially after he drafted and groomed him, he takes pride in that I think. Our offensive line was already a problem, letting Free walk is basically saying were not going to be an improvement on the line this year.


                          Barber was an easy cut, so was Davis. Roy, hell yes. Get your ass outta here. I ate crow plenty of times, but I'm a realist, and after you constantly drop easy passes, then complain for the football, it gets old.



                          Feels good to know we just cut the entire right side of our offensive line from last year.

                              Of course the team that's 50 million over the cap is making a hard play for Doug, ****.

                              • Free isn't a unrestricted FA, I think that's taking it to the extreme. Dallas can match any deal I'm pretty sure, even though I know they'd like to seal the deal now.
