Why do I believe Flozell Adam’s days in a Dallas Cowboys uniform are over? It’s quite simple, really. Adams will be the most-attractive offensive tackle in free agency. I bet half of the teams in the NFL need serious help at this position. The Cowboys will not be able to match the pay Adams will end up getting.
I think it’s best we prepare for this to happen. So, what does this mean? Pat McQuistan and Doug Free will vie for the starting spot.
McQuistan is a 6-foot 6-inch, 311 pound tackle who only played two years of college football, at Weber State. The Cowboys selected him in the seventh round of the draft in 2006.
Free is the same size basically, and he is from Northern Illinois. The Cowboys drafted Free in the fourth round last year. Free won more accolades during his college career than McQuistan. But the big factor is that neither has any real starting experience. With the running game a bit in question with the rumors and uncertainty of Julius Jones‘ future, don’t think this poses a serious problem for the offensive line.
According to Nick Eatman at the official Cowboys site, there is no interest in Falcons disgruntled corner DeAngelo Hall. You can read his blog here. Eatman even touches on the Randy Moss to Dallas rumor, which is just insane. There’s no way that can happen with the current salary cap figures. Plus, we don’t need someone like Moss. We need Hall more than we need Moss.
If all the Falcons are seeking is a first-round pick, the Cowboys may be better of trading one for Hall. He was picked 8th in the 2004 draft. We’d give up the 22nd pick for him. I’ve thought about it all day, and my personal opinion right now is he’ll do better in 2008 than anyone drafted this year. He can be signed to a one-year deal for a test ride and if he performs, he’ll get that longterm deal.
