10 things to know about Cowboys OL Tyron Smith, including his insane bench press and odd eating problem

Tyron Smith has developed into one of the cornerstones of the Cowboys offensive line. Here are 10 things you might not know about him.1. Five-star recruit Considered a five-star recruit and described as "an amazing right tackle prospect" by Rivals.com, Smith was ranked as the No. 6 offensive tackle prospect.

How Bo Scarbrough will fit into the Cowboys 2018 offense

How Bo Scarbrough will fit into the Cowboys 2018 offense

Bo Scarbrough’s power and ferociousness could provide a nice backup behind Ezekiel Elliott. As if it hadn’t been said enough already, the Dallas Cowboys are going to run the ball a ton in 2018. When Ezekiel Elliott was forced to sit out six games due to suspension, the Cowboys’ offense faltered, although the absence of Tyron Smith for some of those games also hurt. In the first half of the season, Dallas’ offense was one of the better units in football. Dak Prescott looked as good as his 2016 season. The offense had no issues scoring. But when the suspension came, defenses loaded...

Is Jason Garrett seeing similarities between current Cowboys and legendary Dallas teams of the 1990s?

FRISCO -- When Zack Martin's contract extension is eventually finalized, the Cowboys are expected to have their three All-Pro offensive linemen (Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick) signed through the 2023 season.The unit is regarded as Dallas' best offensive line since the great groups they had in the early 1990s, some of the best the game has ever seen.There are some other similarities to those teams that won three Super Bowls in four years. With Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith leading the way, those teams were also built around the running game.Several of the key players during that...

What Zack Martin's impending extension means for Dak, Zeke, and Earl Thomas to Cowboys speculation

FRISCO -- When you boil it down to dollars and cents, the Cowboys are paying a heavy price for passing on Johnny Manziel four years ago.Zack Martin was back in his familiar No. 70, running around the club's practice field at the start of minicamp Tuesday. A protracted negotiation for his second NFL contract is nearing completion -- close enough that Martin was willing to take the field after skipping three weeks of organized team activities. Along with the league's fifth highest paid tackle (Tyron Smith) and the highest paid center (Travis Frederick) the Cowboys will soon possess the league's...

Bengals should follow Cowboys’ blueprint of locking up the strength of their team

The Cowboys have the core of their offensive line locked up for the foreseeable future. The Bengals should follow suit on the other side of the trenches. For the third time in five years, the Dallas Cowboys have reset the market for an offensive line position. In 2014, they extended left tackle Tyron Smith for what was at the time $110 million in total money over eight years, with two years left on his rookie contract. It was a deal in length and average salary per year that wasn’t seen at the left tackle position. Two years later, they put pen to paper on a six-year extension worth...

List-makers should really stop trying to rank Tyron Smith

List-makers should really stop trying to rank Tyron Smith

How can Tyron Smith ever be ranked this low? I’ve said before that I believe Tyron Smith is the best offensive lineman on the Cowboys, but Zack Martin is the best when ranked across their respective position groups. Tyron may be the best, and most talented, of the linemen that wear stars on their helmets, but odds are there’s a better left tackle in the game than him than the idea there’s a better guard than Zack Martin (however infinitesimally unlikely it is there’s a better tackle than Tyron). Since it’s the offseason, it’s sometimes not enough to accept simple truths like...

Fly fishing: Zeke takes Cowboys offensive linemen on fishing trip ... via private jet

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott knows who sets the table for him to rip off huge gains on Sundays and give the crowd a thrill with his 'feed-me' gesture.Elliott, entering his third year, makes sure his offensive line knows how much he appreciates the running lanes they provide for him. In December of 2016, Elliott rewarded his OL, which helped him lead the league in rushing as a rookie, by giving each of them John Deere Crossovers (about $16,000 each).Now, according to TMZ, Elliott is taking Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin and company on a fishing trip.

Kristi Scales, the sideline reporter for the Dallas Cowboys radio network, answered questions about the team during a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:What do you think is Dallas' strongest position group? Why?Scales: The offensive line remains the Cowboys' strongest position group, no question about it. Three of the five starters are perennial All-Pros. They're still young; the oldest offensive lineman on the current OTA roster is 27 years old. Yes, that includes LT Tyron Smith who is entering his 8th NFL season but is still just 27 years old. And Smith said during last week's...

PFF rankings have Cowboys offensive line as second best in the league

Cowboys fans might not believe it, but the Dallas O-line comes in second. There have been times when the Dallas Cowboys offensive line has been called the best in football. With the three pillars of Tyron Smith, Zack Martin and Travis Frederick, they will always be a good unit. But last year they had some issues. Smith was injured, La’el Collins was just learning his way at right tackle and the left guard position was only okay. They are hoping they have fixed some of those problems. Collins will be more experienced in 2018, and rookie Connor Williams should slide into the left guard...
