Cowboys FA who will be gone: Tyler Biadasz, C

For four years Tyler Biadasz has handled the Cowboys duties at center. The former fourth round pick was acquired in a draft day trade with Philadelphia in 2020 and went on to start 53 games with Dallas.

Set to hit free agency in March, the 26-year-old hits the market just as he enters the physical prime of his career. With his best years likely ahead, Biadasz looks to cash in on his experience and lock into a multi-year free agent deal.

For as pleased as the Cowboys have been with Biadasz over the years, they haven’t seen him progress like they hoped he would. Biadasz had the rare opportunity to play between two All-Pro guards in Dallas, yet has struggled to stand out in those extremely beneficial circumstances.

Biadasz has generally graded no better than the middle of the pack at center. And while his best football is likely ahead of him, budgets will be tight and Dallas has shown a willingness to let better interior linemen than Biadasz leave without much of a fight. Both Connor Williams and Connor McGovern have gone on to post successful careers after the Cowboys and Biadasz will likely follow suit.

With no clear option in the pipeline, the Cowboys may roll the dice with Brock Hoffman and hope a prospect falls to them somewhere in the draft. Center isn’t considered a high value position in the draft so they won’t feel forced to use a top pick on their replacement.
