Waters (54) while with the New England Patriots Although the offensive line earned high praise after Friday’s night 19-17 loss to the Raiders, there is speculation that the Cowboys will make some moves to address their depth on the line. After being rebuffed by Brandon Moore, many sources including ESPN’s Adam Schefter have indicated that the ‘Boys have targeted guard Brian Waters, who hasn’t played a snap in the NFL since 2011. Injuries among the line, as well as ineffective play have increased the team’s need for additional help. Jerry Jones called Waters an “outstanding” player after the conclusion of Friday’s game in Oakland. He also said that he wasn’t concerned about trying to sign a retired player, especially after the Moore situation. However, assuming the price is right, expect Waters to don the Cowboys star at some point this preseason. Waters started his career with the Cowboys. If indeed Waters signs, he could move into the right guard spot replacing incumbent starter Mackenzy Bernadeau. Bernadeau did actually perform well against the Raiders in his season debut Friday. But its no secret the Cowboys aren’t exactly confident in Bernadeau’s ability, and other backup guard Nate Livings has basically become an after thought for the team. There are also other notable names the Cowboys could go after if their pursuit of Waters goes cold. Derrick Dockery, Montrae Holland, and Leonard Davis are all former Cowboys availalble, and Offensive Coordinator Bill Callahan has ties to several other free agent lineman in the league. The team has about $10 million dollars of cap space to try to find a possible starter or plausible backup.
