2. Sign Daron Payne
The Cowboys need an impact defensive lineman in the middle of their defense — one that can provide ideal run support but also give them pass-rush ability. Commanders free agent Daron Payne would be that player for the Cowboys, and adding him to their already dangerous defensive front would boost this defense to heights we haven’t seen before.
Payne’s unique combination of power and speed is something that you don’t normally see from a 320-pound defensive tackle who’s generated 40 tackles for loss and 26 sacks since entering the league.
Signing Payne would be a home run for Dallas’ efforts to shore up their run defense while at the same time weakening a division rival. Payne isn’t going to come cheap, though, so if the Cowboys are really looking to make a splash this might be one of the only big moves you’ll see from this front office in free agency.
