2. C Tyler Biadasz

It was learned at the NFL Combine that Biadasz would have too strong of a market for Dallas to re-sign him. That wasn't entirely surprising. While the Cowboys have great respect for Biadasz, the upcoming draft allows them to find an upgrade while getting cheaper. A lot cheaper, actually.

As Dan Quinn and general manager Adam Peters attempt to rebuild the Commanders' offensive line, they overpaid for Biadasz. The official terms of Biadasz's contract are three years for $29.25 million, including $20.7 million guaranteed. There isn't a Cowboys fan out there that would argue he's worth that much.

Biadasz's guarantees are the seventh most amongst centers and his $9.75 million annual salary is eight-highest and more than David Andrews, Mitch Morse and Andre James. His guarantees are more than now-former Eagle Jason Kelce's one-year deal, Ethan Pocic and Garrett Bradbury.

With all due respect to Biadasz, he's no a top-10 center in the league. He clearly benefitted from a bloated salary cap and a lowly center market. He certainly isn't a turnstile, but his struggles against beefy defensive lineman leaves us questioning if he'll live up to his Commanders contract.
