The Dallas Cowboys could certainly afford to upgrade their offensive line and free agent right tackle Eric Winston is on their radar. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones talked about the team's interest on Tuesday. "He's obviously somebody that we're taking a look at," Jones told the Elf & Slater show on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "We certainly haven't dismissed Doug Free. We really felt like when we went to rotating him and Jermey Parnell that he really picked up his game in terms of the competition, not to mention the fact that I think he got some clarity as to what offensive line coach Bill Callahan was after. "I think there's some interest and prospects there between what we have and what we could get. Obviously on the interior part of our line the same thing holds true. I think we had some injuries there. Another year under Bill and more work, and not to mention what might happen in the draft. We'll just have to see how that goes." Winston, who has played for the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs, has started 103 games over his seven seasons in the NFL. That has included six consecutive seasons without missing a start. Winston, 29, is looking for a deal that will pay him between 3 and 4 million annually. Free, the Cowboys' current starting right tackle, is due to receive 7 million in 2013, making him the highest-paid right tackle in the NFL. The 29-year-old turned in a disappointing 2012 season and the Cowboys are likely looking for him to take a pay cut. Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
