    Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has made it know that he will be looking for defensive backs in this years draft. He looks on it being the big problem area for his defense. It is quite possible that the team could draft three defensive backs in the draft. And don't be surprised if they pick up at least one in free agancy. I suspect a fair number of the DB's presently on the roster will be elsewhere next season.

    they need to start looking for a new DC, not DB's (although both are a concern for dallas)

    Kitna has retired, will not be back. Greisen filled a purpose a season back, but is no longer needed. I wouldn't mind Morris back, but not at that cost.

    It is reported that the Cowboys are showing interest in the recently released ex Raider cornerback Stanford Routt.

    If the Cowboys were able to get his signature to a contract he would certainly solve one of, if not the number one defensive problem the team has. Routt stands 6-1 and he is taller then any cornerback the Cowboys had on their roster last season. He pulled in four intercepts last season.

    Some media suggestion that the Cowboys should place the Franchise Tag on OLB Anthony Spencer.

    Spencer is an Unrestricted Free Agent and therefore is free to sign with ever team he wants.

    If the Cowboys tag him it will cost them millions more then what he is worth. While he is good, if not very good against the run, his pass rush has been found wanting.

    The Cowboys would like to keep him, but I don't see them tagging him.

    I think your inside source has spent too much time on the sauce.

    Their is still a lot of speculation that the Cowboys will place the franchise tag on OLB Anthony Spencer. As I have previously mentioned that would mean the Cowboys would be over paying for a player who while a very good run defender, brings very little to the pass rush.

    One of my favourite all time Cowboys was Greg Ellis. He was a DE drafted back in 1998. That was the draft when the Cowboys by passed Randy Moss. But so many other teams did also.

    Ellis was drafted to bring a pass rush to the Cowboys def line in a 4-3 def. Much like Spencer was when he was drafted in 2007. The only difference of course was that even though Spencer was a DE in college he was draft by the Cowboys to play OLB in their 3-4 def.

    Like Spencer, Ellis was a very good run defender. The interesting thing for the team and fans is can Spencer improve his pass rush and like Ellis, have a better second half to his career.

    Their are teams out there willing to pay big money to get an 3-4 def OLB. Being an unrestricted free agent, Dallas have little say in what Spencer does. Their only option may be to place the franchise tag on him.

    What ever Cowboys do I suspect that Spencer is heading for a very big money day.

    Some people today are comparing Spencer to Greg Ellis. GE had a productive 11 season career with the Cowboys. In that time he 77 sacks. In the first five years his total was 27. So he picked up the pace in the last 6 years where he had 50 sacks.

    Spencer has just finished his 5th season as a Cowboy, In that time he has 21.5 sacks. So he is a little down on Ellis's figures at the same time.

    The Cowboys would like to keep Spencer. But at what cost? Do they see him improving in the second half of his career, like Ellis did.

    Their are teams in the NFL who run the 3-4 def and are in need of an OLB. Being UFA Dallas have little say in where Spencer goes. One option they do have is to place the franchise tag on him.

    The Cowboys would love to re-sign free agent WR Laurent Robinson.

    Normally teams can re-sign their own free agent players at any time. The problem for the Cowboys is that last season Robinson signed a "minimum salary benefit" contract. It was worth approx $600,000 but only counted around $460,000 against the cap.

    Because of this the Cowboys can't re-sign him until he has received other offers.

    Head Coach, Jadon Garrett has announced that offensive tackles Doug free and Tyron Smith will swap roles for next season.

    Smith will move over to left tackle from the right side. While Free will move the opposite way.

    Cowboys' top 2012 salary cap figures

    February, 23, 2012 Feb 23

    AM CT


    By Todd Archer



    INDIANAPOLIS -- As currently constructed, the Dallas Cowboys have 19 players scheduled to count more than $1 million against the 2012 salary cap.

    Cornerback Terence Newman is slated to count $8.016 million against the cap, but the veteran could be released in order to create more room to sign players. If the Cowboys want to count Newman as a “June 1” cut and spread the salary-cap hit out over two years, they will have to wait until March 13 to release him.

    The list does not include free agent linebacker Anthony Spencer. If the Cowboys decide to use the franchise tag on Spencer, then he would count $8.8 million against the cap in 2012. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones did not rule out the possibility of signing Spencer to a multi-year deal, but that does not appear likely.

    DeMarcus Ware has the highest cap figure at $10.301 million, followed by Tony Romo and Doug Free at $8.060 million apiece. Orlando Scandrick is scheduled to count $7.7 million as part of the extension he signed last summer.

    The Cowboys have structured the contracts of Free and Scandrick in such a way that they could dramatically reduce their cap figures to create around $8.6 million in cap room.
