All’s Quiet In Dallas On The First Day Of Free Agency


Written by theMBIIIeffect

Aside from a trade or two, there isn’t a whole lot to talk about on free agency’s first 12 hours. There’s even less to talk about for the Dallas Cowboys.

Reports out of Dallas say that Jerry Jones hasn’t been in touch with any big-name free agents.

Free safety target Antrel Rolle has been in touch with the Giants, and his asking price might be out of the Cowboys’ price range according to Calvin Watkins:

“…the Cowboys like Mr. Rolle, but not if they have to give him a five-year deal worth about $25-30 million. The Cowboys are not players here at that price. The team will probably draft a safety or hope Michael Hamlin or Alan Ball emerges this summer. If the Cowboys can get safety O.J. Atogwe (84 tackles, seven QB pressures, three forced fumbles and two interceptions in 12 games for the Rams last year) at an affordable price, he might be it.”

Uh, what? The Cowboys being priced out of a player? That’s not what we’re used to hearing, but I’m ok with that.

Jerry Jones has confidence in the guys he has drafted. Ken Hamlin should be very uncomfortable because he has a huge contract and lots of players lining up behind him to take his job.

Offensive line depth has also gone unaddressed in free agency so far. The Redskins are reportedly courting linemen Tony Pashos and Chad Clifton. They’d both be good moves for the Redskins but would both have a tough time against a healthy DeMarcus Ware.
