Henry Melton Rumors: Sunday

Henry Melton will visit with the Cowboys this week as scheduled, tweets NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport tweeted last night that Melton and the Seahawks were “deep in negotiations” and he wondered if Melton would make it out of Seattle without a deal in place.

As it turns out, Melton remains unsigned, and the Cowboys will bring in the big tackle with the hopes that he can anchor the middle of their defensive line. Joel Corry of the National Football Post tweets that Melton would be a good fit in Dallas as he is comfortable with the Cowboys’ defensive scheme, and Rapoport adds that Dallas’ defensive coaches want him (Twitter link).

If the Cowboys do land Melton, he would help replace Jason Hatcher, who enjoyed a career year in Dallas in 2013 before signing with the Redskins several days ago.

    My guess is that after he determines his value, by making all his visits and negotiating with each team, we”ll re-sign with Chicago. He promised the Bears that he would give them an opportunity to re-sign him after he was done with his visits.

    • Sean Young

      Promises in the NFL are empty on both sides of the equation.

    If New England cuts Wilfork like has been widely speculated and extends Mankins and McCourty, they could be a player here. There’s no way they let Wilfork walk without a player who can come in and sure up the position.
