A reader asked me to opine on this rumor today. It’s an easy one in my opinion. Jason Ferguson, a nose tackle who injured his bicep in the first game of the 2007 season, is a good player coming off a pretty serious injury.
The Cowboys had surprising, at times amazing, play from Jay Ratliff. The Cowboys also have Tank Johnson. It seems like a no-brainer to me. If Miami wants Ferguson and is willing to give up a draft pick, do it.
Ferguson is coming of an injury and Ratliff is coming off a great season. There is no reason to believe that Ratliff won’t get better. And having Tank Johnson as a back up makes one of the best nose tackle duos in the NFL.
Trading Ferguson is a solid football decision for the Cowboys.
