As ordinary, the Cowboys haven’t completed a complete lot in free company with regards to signing exterior free brokers. Certain, they’ve signed extra in quantity than they’ve not too long ago, however they’ve been shopping for within the bargain-bin. Whereas they’ve partially shored up their protection with some safeties and a few defensive linemen, they haven’t completed a lot by way of bringing in guys at linebacker (apart from the part-timer Keanu Neal) and nook.
There may be nonetheless loads of time to rectify that. The market continues to be filled with veterans and the Cowboys may be ready till costs fall much more. There are two specifically whose names have been hooked up to the Cowboys, yet another than the opposite, and could be ultimate matches at positions of want.
One is linebacker Okay.J. Wright. Every week or so in the past, Wright known as the Cowboys one of many “dream groups” he wish to play with, one thing that perked up the ears of Cowboys followers. Since then, it’s been reported that Wright has spoken with the Cowboys, though nobody is aware of how severe these talks have been. The Seahawks appear content material to let him go away except he comes again on a severe low cost deal.
Wright — As famous above, the Seahawks could properly suppose it’s time to let the children play at linebacker. That doesn’t imply Wright gained’t be again, but it surely shouldn’t be a shock if he’s not. He’s been reportedly speaking to Dallas. The following week may very well be pivotal.
Wright has made his love of Dan Quinn identified, and their historical past may assist tip the scales. Nonetheless, everyone knows that it’ll come all the way down to cash.
The opposite man is nook Richard Sherman. There was no reported contact between Sherman and the Cowboys, however the longer he’s nonetheless on the market, the extra his value will come down. Sherman has been linked to the Cowboys due to his former time with Quinn, and he has additionally praised the defensive coordinators expertise. Coincidentally, whereas the Seahawks could also be on competition for Wright, they could even be in search of a reunion with Sherman.
Sherman — A reunion may not have been vital if the Seahawks had re-signed Dunbar. And that is additionally a superb draft for cornerbacks. If Dunbar had re-signed the percentages appeared fairly in opposition to Sherman returning. Now, these odds are higher, although there are different veteran choices and a powerful draft at cornerback, as properly. But when Seattle hasn’t added anybody after the draft and Sherman stays accessible, get again to us.
There hasn’t been a lot to report on the Sherman market. He appears content material to attend till a crew and a deal come collectively to his liking. The chances could also be lengthy, but when the Cowboys may usher in a few veterans like Wright and Sherman, the notion of their free company could be modified.
