Drawing early conclusions for Cowboys’ Draft day

The Cowboys have remained quiet after their signing of Henry Melton, and it seems as they will continue the trend until after the Draft. And why not? The players that are on the market right now are not team-altering must-haves. Therefore, it is in the best interest for the Cowboys to focus all their energy toward May and worry about free agents later. This year’s Draft is being...

Lovie Smith says Rod Marinelli and Henry Melton will be a "great combination"

Lovie Smith knows both Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli and defensive tackle Henry Melton from their days in Chicago. If the two can work together like they were able to with the Bears, then Lovie is confident that the Cowboys have a good partnership in the making. When Smith was head coach of the Bears, he got to witness Marinelli and Melton interact for three seasons...

Dallas Cowboys: Change to free agency approach

The Dallas Cowboys seem have changed their approach to the offseason. They are typically the team that overpays what is said to be one of the top free agents available. This has been the theme for many years and often puts them in a tough spot when it comes to managing their cap space. With that said they seem to have left their previous notions of free agency behind them. The Cowboys...

Jason Garrett had a "long discussion" with Henry Melton over his talents as a running back

One interesting wrinkle that the Dallas Cowboys may employ in the coming season could be using recently signed defensive tackle Henry Melton as a running back in goal line situations. Jason Garrett spoke of the impact of the Melton signing, and while most of the focus will be on how Melton can improve a Dallas defense that was mighty porous last year, Henry apparently has other...

Do the Cowboys need an OLB?

The Cowboys will enter the Draft feeling a little more comfortable after the signing of Henry Melton but needless to say that comfortable is not what their looking for. This defense needs a complete overhaul and by golly it’s going to happen. The Cowboys could be looking for upgrades at every position on the depth chart but starting at outside linebacker may do the most benefit...

Jerry Jones still involved as ever with Cowboys

The Cowboys' top free-agent signee Henry Melton brought hope to the organization when he noted that Jerry Jones didn't play any role in his recruitment. He basically said he didn't have any opinion about the owner. This seemed to be another indication that Stephen Jones has taken an even larger role at Valley Ranch. And though Stephen has his moments, the thought of him...

Just because Melton was signed, doesn’t mean tackle isn’t a need

Here at cover32 we would like to continue our offseason lists of the top prospects. After the Cowboys signed Henry Melton last week to fill the void of Jason Hatcher, some folks decided that defensive tackle wasn’t a big priority any longer. Well those folks could be more wrong, Melton is coming off an ACL surgery and people forget that it isn’t easy to make that recovery. Though...

Details of Melton's 'bet-on-himself' Cowboys contract

Henry Melton wanted to join his hometown Cowboys, was drawn to his association with a Dallas staffer, was willing to concede his injury status, and believes he's soon to return to Pro Bowl form. And the standout defensive tackle's unusually-constructed contract is reflective of all that. "I proposed it to the Cowboys this way because it's fair to both parties,"...

Give Jerry credit for a change

Give credit to Jerry Jones. That’s right, you didn’t misread anything. I said give credit to Jerry Jones. Fans and media are often very critical of Jones through both success and failure. When you are the owner, president and general manager for a team who has only one playoff victory in the last 18 years you deserve your fair share of criticism. This off season the Dallas Cowboys...

Dallas Cowboys sign DT Henry Melton

The Cowboys desperately needed defensive line help this off-season, especially defensive tackle help. After losing Jason Hatcher to the Redskins, there might not have been a single team needier for any single position than the Cowboys were for a defensive tackle. Things were so desperate for the Cowboys at defensive tackle this season that Nick Hayden not only started at defensive...
