The top three 2021 Cowboys free agents according to one ranking

The top three 2021 Cowboys free agents according to one ranking

Photo by Patrick Smith/ You can probably guess who the Cowboys top free agent is for 2021. The Dallas Cowboys have roughly 20 free agents of their own to deal with as the 2021 offseason starts to come into view. We previously took a look at the free agents on the defensive side of the ball, and the offensive side of the ball, to make a first prediction of who would be re-signed who would be let go. But how does the outside world view the Cowboys free agents? We don't have a complete list, but a recent ranking of the Top 50 free agents on the market for 2021, courtesy of...

The Cowboys landed the third-best player from the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft... well, sort of

Photo by Todd Kirkland/Icon Sportswire/Corbis/Icon Sportswire via The team made great use of their 2019 first-round pick. The Dallas Cowboys didn’t get to make a selection in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. They’re okay with that though because in exchange for their Day 1 draft spot, they instead received a then two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders. The decision to part ways with such a huge piece of draft capital was met with plenty of criticism. And it wasn’t because of Cooper’s ability as he was clearly a good player,...

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via After the midseason tragedy, the Cowboys find their guy to move forward at strength and conditioning. It is the time of year for the Dallas Cowboys to finalize their coaching staff which is something that we have seen them do since the season ended. There are a few new faces on the defensive side of the ball and just Wednesday morning it was announced that Aden Durde will be manning the defensive line in 2021. Another role was seemingly filled on Wednesday. ESPN reported that the Cowboys are promoting Harold Nash Jr. to be their...

No NFL combine makes draft information scarce for fans

We won’t even get empty platitudes this year. | Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Trying to figure out what the Cowboys are planning to do is so much harder without the clues we used to gather. Last year, the NFL Combine was the last thing that went off more or less as scheduled before the entire offseason came to a halt for the league. It has always been a time that we watch closely. It doesn’t only offer a chance to see who may be better or worse than we thought based on the testing, the interviews and rumors coming out also gave us some hints at what the Dallas Cowboys...

Cowboys 2021 free agent carousel: A look at the cornerbacks

Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports Dallas has a slew of decisions to make regarding their upcoming free agents. As of now, no position has more expiring contracts than cornerback. Offensive air-raid brigades have definitively become first-rate options for most of the NFL’s 32 franchises. Passing is now the name of the game for offensive attacks, and a sport that’s long been known as a battle of the ground-and-pound – predominantly reliant on bruising running backs for advantages – has evolved into a full-on, pitch-and-catch free-for-all. The league’s most potent...

Report: Dallas Cowboys to name Aden Durde as their new defensive line coach

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ There is a new defensive line coach in town for the Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys have shuffled around a few coaches following their disastrous 2020 campaign and they were both on the defensive side of the ball. Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was let go after one year of service with the club as was defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. The Cowboys landed a new coordinator a week ago in former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, brought in Joe Whitt to run the pass defense and secondary (Maurice Linguist is headed to the University of Michigan)...

Why having a quality veteran backup quarterback is unlikely for the Cowboys in 2021

Why having a quality veteran backup quarterback is unlikely for the Cowboys in 2021

Photo by Mike Stobe/ It may be Dak or bust for the Cowboys in 2021. You never fully know how important something is until you lose it. For the Dallas Cowboys, that single statement can define their 2020 season. The Cowboys lost their signal-caller Dak Prescott, and their hopes and aspirations left with him. Thankfully for Dallas, their investment in a backup quarterback during the offseason paid off. As we all know, Andy Dalton started nine games, posting a record of 4-5 and throwing 14 touchdown passes to eight interceptions. Dalton’s quarterback rating was 87.3. His...

Cowboys news: Is a Dan Quinn and Richard Sherman reunion in the cards?

Photo by Tom Pennington/ The news you may have missed from Tuesday The Cowboys Should Reunite Dan Quinn and Cornerback Richard Sherman - John Williams, Inside the Star Dan Quinn built his reputation on his two years as the Seahawks defensive coordinator, and Richard Sherman was a huge part of those record-breaking defenses. With Quinn now in Dallas and Sherman about to enter free agency, the potential reunion is becoming a popular suggestion among many. The connection to Dan Quinn is the obvious reason as to why this makes sense; however, Sherman is still one of the...

Report: Maurice Linguist going to University of Michigan after one season with Cowboys

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Cowboys shake up on their defensive staff continues. The Dallas Cowboys have adjusted their coaching staff on defense this offseason. After a disastrous first year under defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, they said goodbye to him and found former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn as a replacement. One of the people that the team interviewed for their defensive coordinator position was actually Joe Whitt Jr., who wound up on staff anyway. The Cowboys hired Whitt as the team’s secondary coach and defensive passing game coordinator to work...

Eagles interviewed Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore on Tuesday

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ We finally have confirmation of a Kellen Moore interview. The last game that the Philadelphia Eagles played (seemingly) to a truly competitive degree was one where they took a drubbing from the Dallas Cowboys. America’s Team put up 37 points against the bad guys in the penultimate week of the regular season (the second year in a row in which Dallas dropped exactly 37 points against the Eagles in their home building) and the week after saw Philly all but openly say that they were tanking in a game against the Washington Football Team.

Handout Photo-USA TODAY Sports With the NFL Combine format change the Cowboys must trust their scout's input more than ever. On the heels of the NFL announcing that there will be a change to the NFL Combine format this season, teams are going to be in for another year of guessing and trusting the tape on players like they did for the 2020 NFL Draft. This season, though, they will also have to deal with new challenges such as on-field workouts being conducted at pro days only, medical exams will be virtual while team doctors travel to the prospects campus for an in...

Good, bad, or indifferent, just the notion that big changes are coming is enough to get us fans excited about what lies ahead. The hire of new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn certainly seems like a good decision on the surface. Only time will tell if his tutelage will be what the doctor ordered to cure the Cowboys underperforming defense.
