With the NFL labor negotiations almost wrapped up and the most insane free agency period in NFL history just on the horizon, we are in the calm before the storm. By this time next week, things around Valley Ranch are probably going to look a lot different. It should be a fun week.
Obviously, re-signing Doug Free will be the team’s top priority, but they also must address a few other needs, like the safety position. More than likely, Gerald Sensabaugh will be back. That takes care of strong safety. But, the Cowboys needs someone to man the free safety spot, a position that has been inconsistent since the departure of Darren Woodson.
The free agent market is actually pretty strong at safety and the Cowboys should have some options available. Below I’ve listed who I think are the four best safeties available and I’m leaving it up to you, the reader, to decide who the Cowboys should sign. I’m certain that Jerry reads this blog and no doubt he’ll take TLH’s advice. Which of the following free agent safeties would you like to see in Dallas? Let us know in the comments section.
Dashon Goldson — SF
Quintin Mikell — PHI
Eric Weddle — SD
Michael Huff — Oak
Personally, I’d like to see Michael Huff in Dallas. Unlike the last Longhorn they picked up, Huff can probably be a difference maker.
