The Indianapolis Colts have recently decided to not re-sign Dwight Freeney, and it’s time to see where he could end up in 2013.

One of the points Watkins made was that Jones will likely not get the big offer he’s looking for in free agency because of issues involving his durability.

On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett wouldn't own up to who would be calling the offensive plays in 2013, calling it a “collective process", and new offensive coordinator/offesnive line coach Bill Callahan won't say either. How convenient. “It’s really a collaborative effort,” Callahan said, via The Dallas Morning News.
"Again, we finished among the league leaders in offense this past year" - Jason Garrett 21313
He really said that on Wednesday at Valley Ranch during a long press conference that was supposed to provide answers on topics such as play calling for 2013. He is a bit defensive these days, as is understandable for anyone being asked to explain their job performance. But, he...
After 2 and a half seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach, Jason Garrett may not be calling the offensive plays anymore come 2013.

At some point the Dallas Cowboys will have to put this play-calling decision aside and figure out what to do with the roster. They have created an unnecessary distraction by shrouding this decision in a veil of secrecy, so that storyline won't completely go away.
