Cowboys cited among teams losing the most free agent talent, but there’s a twist

It’s not free agency that has hurt the Cowboys.

In the early stages of free agency, there were some tense moments for fans of the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone kind of knew that star corner Byron Jones would be leaving, and when he did to the Dolphins, it was just a confirmation of what we knew was going to happen. But then Robert Quinn left for the Bears and Randall Cobb went to the Texans. Suddenly, some real talent was exiting the Cowboys. Another...

Here are the five biggest changes to the 2020 Dallas Cowboys opponents after free agency

There are new challenges for the 2020 Cowboys.

The first two weeks of free agency are in the books and the Dallas Cowboys definitely look different. Gone is their top cornerback and in are two new defensive tackles. There might be a hole at the moment at slot receiver (the draft will likely bring a new option) but there is a new safety in town. Overall things have changed in a very noticeable way.

It is fair to say that at present...

Steady course and changing tides: Cowboys free agency both familiar and strange

Maybe it’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship. | Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The shift in free agency strategy seems more evolutionary than revolutionary. But it’s still significant.

It has been just (checks calendar, since every day kinda feels the same now) eleven days since the start of NFL free agency. The Dallas Cowboys have signed six outside free agents so far. Three are possible or projected starters, two are depth players, and one is a specialist. That’s pretty...

The Cowboys have done an outstanding job of getting good use out of other team’s first-round picks

Who doesn’t love first-round draft picks?

The Dallas Cowboys have a good reputation of drafting in the first round. If you go back to the beginning of last decade to 2010, you’ll find quite a good list of outstanding first-round draft picks.

That is ten drafts, with seven of them producing All-Pro players. That, my friends, is outstanding!

Not only that, but three of these players were named All-Pro’s their rookie season - Zack...

Tony Romo discusses the 2016 season that ended his career, and how he once played hardball with Bill Parcells

Tony Romo talks the end of his career, and the beginning.

It truly is amazing how fast time tends to fly. These days the biggest argument among fans of the Dallas Cowboys is whether or not the team’s quarterback deserves a contract putting him among the highest-paid at the position. Feels like only yesterday, doesn’t it?

Obviously in 2020 we’re talking about Dak Prescott, but many BTBers have typed thousands of words in defense of a quarterback...

Greg Zeurlein is the new Cowboys kicker, but what happened to him last year?

Greg the Leg stumbled a bit last year, but previous to that he was money.

One week ago, it seemed like a pretty good bet that Kai Forbath would be the Cowboys place kicker in 2020. He was perfect during his audition at the end of 2019 once Brett Maher was cut, and the Cowboys had gone ahead and re-signed him to a one-year deal. Good times for Forbath.

Then came yesterday when the Cowboys made a deal with former Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein. It’s tempting...

New Cowboys safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was named one of the biggest steals of free agency

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Clinton-Dix appears to be a smart signing by the Cowboys with the need in the secondary.

Free agency helps shape teams in a major way in terms of how good they will be in the upcoming season. Adding veterans at positions of need is very helpful for teams that are a piece or two away from truly contending, or for organizations that do not want to go into the draft with one arm behind their back and be forced to draft for need instead of value.

Michael Bennett wants to play in 2020

Michael Bennett‘s 2019 season didn’t necessarily go as planned, but the veteran isn’t planning on hanging up his cleats. Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reports (via Twitter) that Bennett “wants to play in 2020.” Following a one-season, nine-sack stint with the Eagles, Bennett was traded to the Patriots last offseason. He saw a reduced role during his time in New England, collecting five tackles and 2.5 sacks in six games (one start). The veteran wasn’t particularly...

Seems as if Tyrone Crawford will be sticking around.

With the first two weeks of free agency just about in the books the Dallas Cowboys have had a clear focus on improving their defensive line, specifically the interior. We’ve seen Dallas lock down defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, and will soon lock down Dontari Poe. While it is definitely a welcome sign to see the Cowboys beefing up the middle of their first point of attack after losing Robert Quinn to...

Cowboys free agent news: Dallas brings in kicker Greg Zuerlein despite signing Kai Forbath a week ago

We have ourselves a kicking competition in Dallas.

During the first week of free agency the Dallas Cowboys made a move that many were happy to see when they re-signed kicker Kai Forbath. Forbath went a perfect 10 of 10 on both field goals and extra points over three games for Dallas last season after the team finally let Brett Maher go. The team insisting that Maher was the guy for them served as a huge disservice to the squad in many ways which was...

Report: Cowboys sign All-Pro K Greg Zuerlein to three-year deal

The Dallas Cowboys are signing former All-Pro Kicker Greg Zuerlein to a three-year deal worth $7.5 million, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. The signing reunites Zuerlein with special teams coach John Fassell, who worked with him on the Los Angeles Rams. Zuerlein, a sixth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Rams. The 32-year-old’s best season came in 2017 when he earned first-team All-Pro honors after drilling 95% of his 40 field-goal...

Cowboys sign former All-Pro kicker Greg Zuerlein to three-year deal

The Los Angeles Rams just lost another productive member of their squad. The Dallas Cowboys reportedly signed kicker Greg Zuerlein to a three-year deal, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Zuerlein struggled with injury and accuracy in 2019, hitting only 72.7 percent of his field goals. Although the Cowboys signed Kai Forbath last year, Zuerlein is expected to be their guy moving forward. Los Angeles currently does not have a kicker under contract for 2020, so it'll either have to...

Greg Zuerlein to sign three-year deal with Cowboys in free agency

Greg the Leg is on the move. As first reported by NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, kicker Greg Zuerlein will sign a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, leaving the Los Angeles Rams behind. It’s an interesting move for Dallas, who just re-signed kicker Kai Forbath earlier in the month. The fact that Zuerlein is getting a three-year contract would seem to indicate that he, not Forbath, is probably in line to handle the kicking duties in Dallas. Dallas had serious kicking issues last season,...
