The Dallas Cowboys will look very different this season on the field and on the sidelines. So let’s take a look at who could be coming in via free agency.

The Dallas Cowboys coaching staff is going through some major changes this offseason. And that means you can expect the same for the team roster.

After this past week’s press conference for new head coach Mike McCarthy, we know that owner and general manager Jerry Jones has given him complete control of staff and roster. With McCarthy bringing in his guys let’s take a look at who those guys may want to sign in free agency.

Mike McCarthy – Eric Ebron, TE

We know that McCarthy’s offense is an up-tempo offense that wants to wear a defense down. One thing you will notice in all of his offenses, he had a tight end that could stretch the field and if he’s looking at his roster now he doesn’t have one.

This is why Ebron would be his dream free agent, he reminds me of Jermichael Finley in his ability to stretch the field. Finley averaged 12.5 yards per reception and was a red zone threat, Something Ebron has done during his time with the Colt over the past two seasons.

Adding Ebron to this receiving core would give the McCarthy a mismatch problem for the defense who already has to worry about receivers Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and the running game with running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott.

When you think about Mike Nolan’s defenses, the first thing that comes to mind has to be defensive takeaways. Well, that’s something you will get from Harris, given the chance to start full time in 2019 Harris intercepted six passes.

But Harris can also tackle and that’s an area the Cowboys current strong safety Jeff Heath hasn’t been very good at and If the Cowboys want to be able to stop the run they need defenders that can get the ball carrier on the ground. Nolan wants defenders that can cover down the field and attack the football in the air, and Harris checks off both boxes.
