Antrel Rolle is now the highest-paid safety in the NFL, signing with divisional foe New York Giants for too much damn money. Should Dallas Cowboys fans celebrate the silence from Jerry Jones’ office during the second day of the NFL’s free agency carnival?
Last year the Cowboys signed a guy by the name of Keith Brooking, who was at the tail end of a career spent with the Atlanta Falcons. He’s a former player of Cowboys coach Wade Phillips.
The Zach Thomas Experiment failed. The Brooking Experiment was a success. Finally, the team has a freak show, with no fo-sho attitude. Brooking’s the leader of that Cowboys team.
Coming off an 11-5 season and the new level of confidence in Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Felix Jones and the Cowboys defense, there’s not a lot of tweaking that needs to be done.
I had to laugh when I read Todd Archer’s blog that begins with “There’s panic in the streets” because the Cowboys have been so quiet. He says Jerry’s warning there would be almost a dozen new players on the team for 2011 was supposed to jolt his Boys. With his competitive spirit, it is fascinating to see him holding tight; he wants to win the Super Bowl this year more than any of us could believe.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t sign Terrell Owens.
