When undrafted free agent La'el Collins signed with the Dallas Cowboys, he was under the impression that his clearest path to playing time would come at offensive guard.

Shouldn’t the Dallas Cowboys sign Dez Bryant with the freed up cash?

Dallas has had a decent off-season despite losing Demarco Murray. A large number of key role players on the team were re-signed such as Rolando McClain and Doug Free, and some “big-name” players were added such as Greg Hardy and Darren McFadden. But despite the additions already been made and freeing up cap space for Murray being too late, Tony Romo still reconstructed his contract...

Dallas Cowboys: Patience is the answer in the Brandon Carr dilemma

Does anyone remember what happened with right tackle Doug Free two years ago? If not, allow me to refresh your memory. After two solid seasons from 2009-2010, Free regressed and seemingly lost his confidence and technique for the next two seasons, 2011-2012. After that 2012 campaign (around mid-May 2013 to be exact), Free was asked by the Dallas Cowboys front office to take a substantial...

Free got 15 million over 3 years from the Cowboys with 6 million guaranteed. Pernell got almost as much in guarantees as Free got in total value as this deal guarantees him 13 million and is worth...

Free was going to be a risky signing anywhere he went, as he’s going into his age 31 season and he struggled mightily in 2011 and 2012, to the point where he was briefly benched down the stretch in 2012. He graded out 51st out of 76 eligible in 2011 and 68th out of 80 eligible in 2012. However, those two seasons were sandwiched in between 4 seasons in which he graded out above...
