Cowboys strength of schedule for 2019 paints a tough struggle for the playoffs

Cowboys strength of schedule for 2019 paints a tough struggle for the playoffs

The Cowboys face a tough road in 2019. The 2018 Dallas Cowboys were a great story. They limped out of the gate to a 3-5 start before finishing 10-6, beating the Seahawks in the Wild Card round, and then losing to the eventual NFC champion Los Angeles Rams. Still, it wasn’t enough for Jason Garrett to get a contract extension so he’ll be coaching for his job in 2019 with a new offensive coordinator in Kellen Moore. While nothing has officially been said, it’s likely that the Cowboys will need to put together a great 2019 season featuring a deep playoff run and a significantly better...

Cowboys News: Jerry Jones says relationship with DeMarcus Lawrence is “outstanding”

The news of the day for the Cowboys. Jon Machota has the quote from Jerry Jones discussing his relationship with DeMarcus Lawrence. We noted yesterday how Lawrence isn’t going to sign a second franchise tag contract, and there was speculation about whether the Cowboys could reach a deal with Lawrence in time. Those specifics still need to be worked out but Jerry says it’s all good between he and Lawrence. Jerry Jones was asked if there has been any discontent between DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys: “None. There’s just absolutely none, as far as I’m concerned. It’s one of...

Cowboys News: Two Cowboys veterans most likely to be cap casualties

All the news... The Dallas Cowboys veterans who are most likely to become salary cap casualties this offseason - Staff, SportsDayIt happens every year, some veterans are tossed to the side for salary cap and production issues. Which Cowboys veteran is the most likely to be a salary cap casualty this offseason? David Moore: There are two likely candidates. The first is Sean Lee. Given his age, injury history and the emergence of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, the $7 million he’s currently scheduled to receive in 2019 is too high a price. But those who put the linebacker’s future...

Sean Lee is taking time to think about his future and if he’ll continue to play, and Damien Wilson is a pending...

Cowboys News: Salary cap savings on the way for Dallas

Plus other Cowboys stories of the day. Cowboys land millions in rollover cap savings from 2018 season - Patrik Walker, 247 Sports As the offseason starts to really ramp up with the Super Bowl out of the way, it’s the point in the year where teams start looking at how much cap space they’ll have to work with. The Cowboys, like many other teams in the league, are getting a nice padding from cap savings that are rolling over from the 2018 season. What does this mean for the Cowboys, specifically? Well, considering they’ll also roll over approximately $11.7 million in savings from 2018...

Five potential free agent defensive tackle targets for the 2019 Cowboys

Five potential free agent defensive tackle targets for the 2019 Cowboys

The Cowboys will likely need to replace David Irving, and there are some quality free agents they could target. It’s funny how much can change in a year. This time last year, one of the Cowboys’ biggest needs was finding a 1-technique defensive tackle who could consistently hold that role for them. The rest of the defensive line was pretty much set, as DeMarcus Lawrence was coming off a monster year and David Irving, despite getting another suspension, was still the premier 3-technique in Dallas. Now it’s February 2019, and the only thing that’s stayed the same is the dominance of...

What the Cowboys are getting in new special teams assistant coach Carlos Polk

What the Cowboys are getting in new special teams assistant coach Carlos Polk

Polk can help make the special teams unit special again. It won’t garner as much attention as the news about Kellen Moore, Jon Kitna, or Jason Garrett’s lack of a contract extension, but on Friday Dallas hired Carlos Polk as their new assistant special teams coach. Polk replaces Doug Colman who was let go after one year. Special teams was a source of much dread for the Cowboys in 2018, as the unit took a huge step back under first year special teams coordinator Keith O’Quinn. In 2017 under Rich Bisaccia, Dallas ranked seventh in special teams DVOA, but this past season they regressed...

Just Kitna around: Why new QB coach Jon Kitna might be a more important hire than offensive coordinator

Just Kitna around: Why new QB coach Jon Kitna might be a more important hire than offensive coordinator

The former Cowboy was officially announced as Dak’s newest position coach. On Thursday, the Cowboys made official what we have all been expecting for the last week or so: Kellen Moore has been promoted to offensive coordinator and Jon Kitna has been hired as the new quarterbacks coach. A lot of people are understandably focused on Moore’s elevation to the coordinator position, especially with news that he will likely call plays, but Kitna’s hire could be as important. Kitna will be the third quarterbacks coach in Dak Prescott’s four years in the NFL, and arguably the best one...

Jason Garrett’s job security is now tied to Kellen Moore

Jason Garrett’s job security is now tied to Kellen Moore

There’s a lot of pressure on first-year offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Thursday brought us the news that wasn’t really news because it has been common knowledge for a week or so now, but Kellen Moore was officially named the Cowboys’ new offensive coordinator and Jon Kitna was announced as the new quarterbacks coach. Moore, who will turn 30 this summer, seems likely to call the plays, although he will have input from tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier, Kitna, and Jason Garrett, and probably a little from Dak Prescott. But while everyone was obsessing over the official announcement,...

Five potential free agent safety targets for the 2019 Cowboys

Five potential free agent safety targets for the 2019 Cowboys

The Cowboys may try to bolster the safety position in free agency. Who could they target? Now that the Cowboys have begun their offseason and, for all intents and purposes, finished reconstructing their coaching staff, the team shifts its focus to free agency and the draft. While Dallas will certainly look to keep several of their own free agents, there are other players they could look to sign, and this series will focus on potential free agent targets at each position of need for the Cowboys. Today’s focus is on the need at safety. Earl Thomas Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY...
