Why the Raiders Should Sign Miles Austin

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports Miles Austin has had some injury issues over the years, but was previously the Cowboys number one or two receiver year after year.  Austin is by far the most talented of the available wide receivers, and could very well be the most talented offensive free agent still on the market. Austin statistically has been very good when given an ample amount...

Which Free Agents Should Raiders Target With DJax Gone To Washington

After the DeSean Jackson fiasco in Oakland, the Raiders were obviously looking for a veteran receiver to help mold Rod Streater, Juron Criner, Jared Green, Andre Holmes and Greg Jenkins into the stereotypical Oakland Raider receiver – a fast and deep threat that can turn the game around on one play. With Jackson now headed to Washington, the Raiders seem poised to go young instead...

Cowboys look to be in good shape in 2015 and 2016

The Cowboys'' loaded salary cap reckoning came with the release of DeMarcus Ware. While the move was painful for Cowboys fans (and owner Jerry Jones), making that tough decision should help the Cowboys financial future. While the past couple of seasons could have best been described as "tight" as the team overspent to keep its own veterans at the cost of depth...

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...

Jerry still in the car but Stephen emerging as the driver

This offseason started out just as it has for the past three years, a gloomy 8-8 result that has brought on a lot of scrutiny but also a chance to change philosophies. However, it isn’t the defense or offense changing; it’s the culture of how the organization will operate that has many Cowboys fans looking up. Though so many were upset with the departure of familiar faces like...

Veteran wideout in Cowboys' plans?

Miles Austin is gone and most likely will never play for the Dallas Cowboys again. Hamstring injuries, a huge contract and the emergence of Dez Bryant made Austin expendable. Austin will be missed because he was a veteran receiver who could help the passing game when defenses took Bryant out with tight coverage. The Cowboys have normally employed veteran receivers to help with...
