Coming out of salary cap Hell, one of the first moves the Dallas Cowboys made was to sign free agent defensive tackle La’Roi Glover to a multiple year contract. In 2000, Glover produced 17 sacks as a defensive tackle. Jerry Jones and Dave Campo were hoping he would have a similar run in Dallas.
The most sacks he had in Dallas was 7 for a season, though 2003 was probably his best statistical year as a Dallas Cowboy. He posted 5 sacks, defended a pass, forced a fumble, recovered two, and had the only safety of his career. The 2003 Dallas Cowboys rode their #1 defense into the wildcard playoffs, losing in Carolina 29-10. Dallas let Glover walk after the 2005 season, their inaugural year transitioning to the 3-4 defense.
