IRVING – At his wrap up news conference Monday, Jason Garrett didn’t rule out the possibility of Tyron Smith and Doug Free swapping positions next season.
Smith was solid as a rookie at right tackle after the Cowboys made him the ninth overall pick. Free was a disappointment in his second season at left tackle.
“We’ll look at that,” Garrett said.
Garrett and his staff are expected to evaluate each player and position through this week.
“We’ll talk about each individual player and their strengths and weaknesses and how we’re using them and if we’re using them the right way and if a position switch is appreciate for those guys,” Garrett said. “We’ll certainly have that discussion.”
In the two losses to the Giants, Free was overwhelmed at times by end Jason Pierre-Paul, who had three sacks against the Cowboys.
But, then again, the offensive line was sub-par as a unit this season after Garrett released such vets as Andre Gurode, Leonard Davis and Marc Colombo.
