Cowboys defensive free agents 2021: Who stays and who goes?

Photo by Elsa/ Which defensive players are sticking around? Free agency is just around the corner. NFL teams will look to add pieces to their roster that will optimize their chances of success going forward. For the Dallas Cowboys, signing outside free agents isn’t something they’ve been real heavy on in recent years. They do bring back a handful of their own free agents as they look for low cost purchases to round out their roster. On Saturday, we examined the Cowboys offensive free agents and attempted to predict which players are resigned, and which ones sign...

How the Cardinals signing of J.J. Watt could benefit the Cowboys

With free agency on the horizon, it's no shock that the Dallas Cowboys have work to do retaining their own players as well as looking for talent to add to the roster. Now that J.J. Watt has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, Cowboys fans can refocus their attention on players the Cowboys can actually sign. And as luck would have it, the signing of Watt may have opened the door for the Cowboys to pursue two Cardinal players who are now free agents, one on offense and defense. The idea has been...
