2. All not quiet on the front lines

So, the Dallas Cowboys lose defensive end Robert Quinn to the Chicago Bears. Quinn was a game-changer for the Cowboys, so the news isn’t surprising. He was a highlight reel for Big D in 2019. Quinn earned his new contract, which was a five-year deal worth $70 million.

While the Dallas Cowboys say bye to Quinn, they might be saying hello to Randy Gregory. Gregory hasn’t played ball since the 2018 season.

However, his services are needed now more than ever. Overall, Gregory has played in 28 games, owns 45 tackles and seven sacks. Will 2020 be the year he lives up to the No. 94 jersey?

The Cowboys lost major names on the defensive front line. Enter Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe. Both are over 300 pounds, with Poe nearly at the 350-pound mark. Both are former first-round picks.

The Dallas Cowboys are reshaping the defense. McCoy and Poe are interesting ingredients to the mix, who are excellent locks to help the Cowboys trajectory point north.
