4 unsigned free agents the Dallas Cowboys can still sign
Believe it or not, with less than a month to go until training camp, there are still some NFL free agents left without contracts. Since February, Dallas Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones has been asking fans and reporters to be patient. Jones said the team will still have plenty of action in free agency before the 2022 NFL Draft happened. Almost two months later, not a single free-agent addition has been made.
If the Cowboys’ front office wants to keep good on their word, there are still some veteran players out there who could help fill some positional gaps on this roster.
It’s worth noting that we understand that names like Odell Beckham Jr. and Ndamukong Suh are still available. While these multi-time Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl winners are amazing athletes, the reality is that the Cowboys aren’t going to be willing to pay for OBJ and Suh is 35 years old. That’s why you won’t see them on this list.
We tried to pick out players who could actually make meaningful impacts on the Cowboys roster at this time. So, let’s get to it!
4 NFL free agents that are still available for the Dallas Cowboys to add
4. Duane Brown, OT, Seattle Seahawks
When the NFL first released their top 101 free agents available list back in February, Duane Brown was ranked as the No. 14 best available player amongst all position groups. That’s pretty impressive in an offseason where guys like Von Miller, Terron Armstead, and Marcus Williams were all free agents.
The good news for Dallas is that at 37 years old, Brown simply isn’t worth top-tier money anymore. So if the Joneses want to get a solid veteran presence to boost an offensive line with a lot of question marks for an affordable price, this is a solid option.
The Seahawk was a former first-round pick in 2008. He spent 10 years in Houston before being traded to Seattle where he has consistently been one of the best left tackles in the NFL. He earned a 71.5 grade from PFF at 37 years old this season.
Brown has 14 years of NFL experience and he could come in and mentor young guys like Tyler Smith alongside longtimers like Zack Martin and Tyron Smith. He is also a five-time Pro Bowler and has an All-Pro nod as well. Smith is currently the starting left tackle, but with his injury past, having Brown on the roster is wise.
