7. The Cowboys sign that other Moore
Not a splashy sign by any means, but I still hold this as an important sign. If anything, this could mean Mark Sanchez‘s days with the Dallas Cowboys are over. And I truly think that’s a brilliant thing.
With Kellen Moore around, the Cowboys can rely on him to step in when needed, but also continue with Prescott’s learning. Why change a good thing?
8. The NFC East will fight in the air
Yes, there are some big time wide receivers in the NFC East. And yes, I think the Cowboys have a problem.
The Cowboys weren’t fancy with defending the pass to begin with. With the stock of big receivers in the mix, the Cowboys must find new muscle to defend against the air attack.
Dallas has relied on running the ball, thus keeping the rock away from opposing team’s offenses. But to prevent another Aaron Rodger’s miracle, the Cowboys must get correct with their picks in the NFL Draft.
Fortunately, the draft has a plethora of defensive backs. Can the Cowboys hire the right guys to handle a receiver named Brandon Marshall?
9. Was Ronald Leary better than La’el Collins?
Well, the Cowboys’ offensive line took a blow. First Leary, now right tackle Doug Free is aiming for an early retirement.
The front line was arguably better with Leary in. Though Collins has youth and potentially a higher ceiling, Leary’s consistency will be missed.
But there’s no turning back now. Leary wasn’t expected to stay in Dallas, especially after carrying his weight in 2016.
La’el Collins will get his chance to live up to the first-round, talent billing he gets labeled with. I can’t wait to see some pancakes!
10. Nothing good in life is free
It’s easy to register Doug Free as the weakest of the fab five. Every group has that one weak link. But that doesn’t mean Free didn’t add color to the dynamic group.
In fact, losing Free at right tackle could pose a major threat for Dak Prescott. If the Cowboys don’t replace the spot with a quality starter, Dallas may wonder what they should’ve done to make Free think twice about retirement.
I’m really not sure Chaz Green is the answer.
11. Adrian Peterson
No. This won’t happen. That’s all I have to say about that.
