Today’s look at the Cowboys..
- Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant still hasn’t been able to agree to a new deal with Dallas, but he says it’s not about the money, writes Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram. “Just something we can compromise on. I’m not accepting what’s given to me,” Bryant said. “We’ll have to see. If it’s right, it’s right, I’ll sign my name on the dotted line. If it’s not, it’s not. At the end of the day, I want to win. But at the same time, I have a family and that’s what is important. I feel like, hey, I put the work in, I got to give myself some kind of credit.”
- Bob Sturm of The Dallas Morning News wishes he could go back in time and make the Cowboys take defensive end Fletcher Cox over cornerback Morris Claiborne in the 2012 draft. Claiborne had a rough start to the season – he was bumped on the depth chart in favor of veteran Orlando Scandrick and suffered a season-ending injury soon after.
- Sturm was asked by a reader to rank Rolando McClain, Henry Melton, Justin Durant, Bruce Carter, Anthony Spencer, Nick Hayden, and Sterling Moore in terms of which Cowboys defensive players are most important to keep. In his view, McClain, Melton, and Durant should be prioritized and the rest are not worth getting carried away with at this juncture.
