Found May 18, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
The Cowboys had one of the worst interior offensive lines in the league last year. Center Phil Costa led the league in botched snaps and wasn’t much better as a blocker, while guards Montrae Holland and Kyle Kosier were mediocre and consequently let go this offseason. The Cowboys brought in Nate Livings, one of the worst starters in the league last year, from Cincinnati to start at left guard and they were expecting fellow free agent acquisition Mackenzy Bernadeau to step in at right guard, even though he has never been a regular starter in his career. However, Bernadeau suffered a hip injury earlier this week and needed surgery that would sideline him for roughly 3 months, which would make him unavailable for a large portion of Training Camp and maybe the Preseason, which would hurt his chances to establish himself as the starter. ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins believes that the job is now David Arkin’s to lose. Arkin barely played last year, but was a 4th round pick out of Missouri S...

Cowboys Mailbag: Scandrick vs Jenkins

Another week has ended in Cowboys land, and all has been relatively quiet. Save for the very disappointing news about the hip of Mackenzy Bernadeau. You never want to hear about an injury taking out a guy for three months you have just signed to be a starter, but I suppose this injury hitting in May is way better than September. Nevertheless, continuity and reps are what makes an...

Irvin: Cowboys finally have playmakers at CB

Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin helped the Cowboys win three Super Bowls during their Hall of Fame careers. The franchise has one playoff victory since their run in the mid-1990s.

Morris Claiborne looking to return to the field in June

The Cowboys, led by head coach Jimmy Johnson, looked every bit as...

Cowboys’ Morris Claiborne expects to be ready for minicamp

One minor issue with Morris Claiborne coming out of LSU was his wrist. Offseason wrist surgery made it impossible for him to workout privately with teams. However, it was a minor issue and did not make his stock fall very far, if at all, as he was selected 6th overall by the Cowboys, who traded away a 2nd round pick to move up 8 spots to grab him. Claiborne said today that he expects...
