Linehan's departure as OC may give Cowboys fans hope, but it's hard to foresee huge changes with Garrett still at the helm

Linehan's departure as OC may give Cowboys fans hope, but it's hard to foresee huge changes with Garrett still at the helm

Now we know why Stephen Jones was so quick to refute what Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said about keeping his coaching staff intact. Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan was thrown overboard Friday, although Garrett is calling it a "mutual" decision.What became glaringly obvious during the season is the Cowboys didn't run the type of creative offense that we'll see on display in the conference championship games Sunday. Linehan certainly did a nice job of integrating Amari Cooper into the offense, but one of the reasons the Cowboys had to trade that first-round pick was Linehan's belief...

Film room: 3 offensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency, including a TE who can stretch defenses

Film room: 3 offensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency, including a TE who can stretch defenses

Earlier this week, we took a look at some prospects the Cowboys may consider in the NFL draft. It only makes sense that we now turn our attention to the other major personnel component of the offseason -- free agency, which begins March 13.The Cowboys are estimated to have a little over $54 million in cap space this offseason, according to Over The Cap, but much of that will likely be taken up by re-signing (DeMarcus Lawrence) and extending those who are entering the final year on their contract (Amari Cooper, Dak Prescott, Byron Jones).Because of this and the front office's overall offseason...

2019 NFL Draft: History of the 58th overall pick shows Cowboys can land someone useful

2019 NFL Draft: History of the 58th overall pick shows Cowboys can land someone useful

With no first-round pick, can the Cowboys land a winner in the second round? The Dallas Cowboys hold the 58th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, it will be their first selection as they traded their first-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders to acquire Amari Cooper. When you say it like that - the 58th overall pick - it sounds heavy and bad. It sounds like 57 players are going to be off the board so the odds of selecting someone good aren’t exactly high. For what it’s worth, there have been a handful of very good players taken with the 58th overall pick in the last decade. A...

Should the Cowboys be considered the NFC East favorite in 2019?

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answers your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are the highlights:Other than DeMarcus Lawrence, which of their free agents should the Cowboys place the most priority on re-signing?Machota: For me, I'd rank the top 5 as DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Byron Jones. Zeke is their most valuable player, but he's under contract through 2019 and actually 2020 because they would certainly pick up his fifth-year option.Do you think Travis Frederick will be able to...

Marcus Peters’ comments about Amari Cooper were a master class of no class

Marcus Peters’ comments about Amari Cooper were a master class of no class

Shockingly, Marcus Peters lacked class on Saturday night. The Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys last Saturday night. That is true and will be true no matter what. They won and to the victors go the spoils. We’ve all been a part of trash talk at some point in our lives. Either in the lead up or aftermath of a competition (definitely some Cowboys games), we’ve all had some words to say. Again, when you win you have the right to have the last laugh. Rams cornerback Marcus Peters did some talking on Saturday night, and he did so in a pretty classless way. Speaking with NFL Media’s...

Final thoughts on the Amari Cooper trade, and what to make of the offseason ahead for Sean Lee

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answers your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are the highlights:How much stock do you put in opposing teams, after beating the Cowboys, saying that they knew what was coming? I remember this happened a few years ago, too. What do you take from these comments?Machota: The Cowboys don't seem to think it's a big deal. I personally think it's a little concerning. I just don't hear those same things being said about the four teams remaining in the playoffs. I understand that the Cowboys...

2019 NFL mock draft: Cowboys strengthen the Hot Boyz with their first pick

Would you be interested in a defensive tackle for the Cowboys in the 2019 draft? With the Cowboys season now officially over it’s time to focus on offseason moves and objectives for the team. We’ll see if there are any changes to the coaching staff (signals are unclear) and how the Cowboys handle free agency (here are all of their free agents), but the signature event of the offseason is of course the NFL Draft. Dallas doesn’t have a selection in the first round because they traded it to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for Amari Cooper. That pick wound up being 27th overall which was...

Look: 65,000 reasons why Amari Cooper is staying in Dallas

If there is any question to whether Amari Cooper is committed to the Cowboys -- the wide receiver gave 65,000 reasons why he's plans to have a long-term future in Dallas. Cooper bought a diamond custom made medallion of his Cowboys jersey from well-known jeweler Gabriel the Jeweler. According to TMZ, Cooper's iced out medallion is valued at $65K. The 6-foot-1 wideout is expected to sign a lucrative deal with the Cowboys before his current contract expires at the end of next season. Dallas acquired Cooper in an Oct. trade with the Oakland Raiders. He is credited for helping kick start what was...

Re-evaluating the Amari Cooper trade now that the final value of the pick is known

Re-evaluating the Amari Cooper trade now that the final value of the pick is known

The pick is in! Well, the value of that pick, that is. With the divisional round of the playoffs completed and the Dallas Cowboys eliminated, the actual value of the 2019 first-round draft pick the Oakland Raiders will receive is officially known. Oakland will get the 27th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. All year we have been scrutinizing the Amari Cooper trade and it’s still going to be a while before we know the true verdict, but we have a better sense of the value now. The trade started off heavily criticized because first-round picks are precious things, but then it started...

Amari Cooper finds passion with Cowboys he had never shown with Raiders

Amari Cooper finds passion with Cowboys he had never shown with Raiders

Playing for the Oakland Raiders isn’t for everyone, especially not Amari Cooper. You can clearly see that from his time with the Raiders to the Dallas Cowboys, who he now plays for. He forced himself to smile when he was first taken No. 4 overall by the Raiders in 2015. Then when he signed his contract, he couldn’t get himself to smile, giving the appearance that he was not all that happy to be a Raider. He is so talented and skilled, he balled out his first two years with the Raiders anyway. Then from 2017 up to his trade to the Dallas this past season, he seemed to have lost his...
