Falcons Sign Michael Turner; Where Is The 'Surprise' Jerry?

Another high-profile free agent is off the list as the Falcons signed running back Michael Turner. It’s likely Warrick Dunn will be released as reported earlier. But, who knows. That’s not really important.

What is important is what Jerry Jones told ESPN in an interview when pressed about what his plans are for the Dallas Cowboys running game. What Jones did was back away from the Darren McFadden circus and say that he doesn’t have to fill the team’s needs in the draft. He can also use free agency. And he also said he might surprise people.

Oh? Well, just about every person whom Cowboys fans would have liked to see fill those needs is now gone. Very few players are left who we think can come in right away with impact. I am working on a mock draft right now that, for the first time, shows the Cowboys trading up in the draft.

As each day passes, I think more and more that the Cowboys do plan to draft up and pick Darren McFadden. I think the Cowboys are working hard to trade picks with the Falcons. I am sure DeAngelo Hall will be included in the final package.

This is just speculation on my part, although we’ve heard the rumors.  Keep an eye on this, guys.

If the Cowboys get DeAngelo Hall, I would be fine with trading the top two picks for McFadden. I don’t think having McFadden on the team would be horrible. It would be good. I just don’t want to trade all we have for a running back when the most-pressing need is the secondary. We need a new safety, too, because Roy Williams just is not cutting it.

The Cowboys are so close to being the best team in the NFL. I just hope Jerry Jones has enough scruples to not screw it up. Meanwhile, the Eagles continue to sign people. They find a wide out, and it is rumors Randy Moss is interested, and the Eagles are right back in the hunt.
