Dallas Cowboys: Where is the biggest need?

Will the Cowboys address their defensive line? The Dallas Cowboys are a needy football team. There are roster holes all over the field, positions begging to be taken by a reliable starter. Travis Frederick proved last season that the Cowboys can address some of these holes without the No. 1 (or No. 6, aka Morris Claiborne) overall pick. There are arguments to be made for drafting...

Cowboys Updated Salary Cap; Plus Possible Free Agents

More possible free agents? This offseason for the Dallas Cowboys? It's more than just a possibility, as shocking as that sounds.The Dallas Cowboys surprisingly have $5,754,917 in salary cap space, which gives them plenty of space to sign a free agent or two. They could really sign any free agent that they want to, and an example of that is when they signed Brandon Carr in 2012...

2011 NFL Draft Reset: Patriots Can’t Get Nate Solder, Take Defensive Tackle

The 2011 NFL draft should go down as one of the best ever. That draft class already has produced many All-Pros and Pro Bowl selections, and it could have a few potential Hall of Famers. The draft was loaded from top to bottom — one of the best players in the NFL didn’t get selected until the fifth round. The Patriots traded up from the 28th overall pick to No. 17 to take Colorado...

Jerry Jones “Indicates” Cowboys Have Exchanged Numbers With WR Dez Bryant

David Moore of the Dallas Morning News writes that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones “indicates that the Cowboys have exchanged numbers” with WR Dez Bryant and his representatives regarding a new contract. It’s worth mentioning that Jones didn’t specifically state contract talks are ongoing with Bryant. Moore mentions that Jones stopped short of “confirming whether it’s with...

Signs point to Cowboys exercising 5th-year option on Tyron Smith; long-term contract talks could be delayed

All signs point to the Dallas Cowboys exercising their fifth-year option on Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith that would extend his rookie contract through 2015 and could push off the club’s plan to sign him to a long-term contract. The NFL’s 2011 collective bargaining agreement required all first-round draft picks to sign four-year contracts with a fifth-year team option built...

Dallas Cowboys: Apathy breeds an average team

The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a third straight 8-8 record and need to begin to make changes regarding their approach to both the culture and the structure. The organization currently consists of what I would consider a few decent players such as Jason Witten, Dez Bryant and Tyron Smith. However, what I believe is their main problem is the organization of contracts and contract...

Should the Cowboys draft another Offensive Tackle?

The Cowboys have spent the last three years revamping their offensive line. It certainly has paid off and with Doug Free improving his play, it may be hard to spend a high draft pick on the positions. However, Free is closer to the end of his career than the beginning. It may be fitting to go one step further and really shore up the position over the next 10 years or so. Tyron Smith...

Will Mock Drafters get the Donald pick completely wrong?

If you were the Cowboys GM, which defensive player would you draft in the 1st round? Are you sold on a player like Aaron Donald, or would you rather get a defensive end, or perhaps a defensive back?  Aaron Donald is the hot pick for Dallas in most mock drafts, and if history is any indicator you may want to have another prospect to get enamored over. Mock drafts are more of an art...

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith Primed To Become League’s Highest Paid LT?

Todd Archer of ESPN.com has an interesting take on the impact the Jason Peters contract extension could have on Cowboys LT Tyron Smith. Archer, quite frankly, does not believe that Peters’ extension should affect Smith at all. “Smith’s deal should be much bigger than this whenever the Cowboys decide to sign their Pro Bowl left tackle to an extension.” Archer supports his...

2014 NFL COMBINE REPORT: Dallas Cowboys VP Stephen Jones discusses team draft needs, salary cap, and contracts

INDIANAPOLIS – Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones doesn’t want to focus on just one spot in the 2014 NFL Draft. He didn’t deny the Cowboys’ obvious wants and needs on the defensive line, but he said Wednesday that teams get in a lot of trouble by narrowing their scope to just one position when it comes time to draft. “You start targeting something and...

Dallas Cowboys LT Tyron Smith Next In Line for Extension?

If Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com were GM of the Cowboys, he knows what his next order of business would be. Watkins suggests that Dallas should extend the contract of LT Tyron Smith, even before they approach WR Dez Bryant regarding a long-term deal. Smith is still under contract until after the 2014 season, but the Cowboys have a team option for 2015 that can be picked up in...

Scouting Report: Tyron Smith

When the Cowboys decided to move Tyron Smith from the right to the left side in 2012, I for one questioned the move for a few reasons. Smith was such a dominant Right Tackle as a rookie at the age of 20 and I saw flashes of a young Erick Williams. Also, moving him to the blind side of the quarterback at a position he had never played before was a major transition. I was skeptical...
