Clarence "I'm Right More Than I Am Wrong" Hill Is At It Again

KFFL has these weird quick notes that state our one and only super-journalist Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram reports the Dallas Cowboys are looking to sign four star players to long-term deals. Here is what the weird quick notes say, without links:

Clarence E. Hill Jr., of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports the Dallas Cowboys are looking to sign DL Chris Canty to a long-term deal.

Cowboys | Team looking to sign Barber long-term
Tue, 11 Mar 2008 18:14:50 -0700
Clarence E. Hill Jr., of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports the Dallas Cowboys are looking to sign restricted free-agent RB Marion Barber III to a long-term deal.

Well, how much credibility does any of this have? Hill is the same journalist who reported to us all that Marion Barber was only getting a 1st round pick tender, which scared the living crap out of most of us.

This time, I think the Super Journalist might be on to something. If Jerry Jones signs long-term deals for these four guys, he might be able to free up some more cap room. I am not sure because the whole cap crap is confusing and tedious. But if Jerry Jones can free up more cap room, it is another piece of evidence that he will be moving up in the draft, almost certainly giving away the two first-round picks, to draft Darren McFadden.

You know, I bet Jerry Jones traded that pick to Cleveland last year with the plan that if he had two first-round picks, he has more trading power to get McFadden. I wouldn’t doubt JJ told McFadden last year he would be a Cowboy at almost any cost.

But where is our cornerback for the future? Who will be our wide receiver for the future (seriously guys, cut the crap on this Stanback stuff, because it’s just pie in the sky right now)? Who will be our safety for the future?

The Cowboys may have been 13-3 last year, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t flaws that could be fixed with those two first-round picks. I am losing sleep over this damn stuff!!
