According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, there’s some speculation around the league that the both the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots would be interested in Texans linebacker/defensive end Mario Williams if he ends up hitting the open market.
Once again there’s no fact to this report, it’s just speculation. But it would make a lot of sense for both of these teams to go after Williams since the Cowboys need a pass rusher on the opposite side of DeMarcus Ware and the Patriots could use a premiere pass rusher on their defense.

Many pundits were astonished when the Texans passed on Reggie Bush to draft Mario Williams with the No. 1 overall pick in 2006. Williams avoided the franchise tag on Monday and this time when he hits the open market as a free agent, no one questions his place in the pecking order, writes Len Pasquarelli.
Mario Williams is the piece the New England Patriots have been missing since Willie McGinest. The failed Adalius Thomas experiment seemed to douse Bill Belichick’s desire for that dominating hybrid linebacker, choosing to use more moving parts than just one.
However, having the franchise tag open for the one player they would rather not loose in Wes Welker and the fact that they...
