Von Miller Interested In Joining Cowboys

The Von Miller-to-Denver smoke did not end up producing a deal, with the Broncos poaching a younger pass rusherRandy Gregory — away from the Cowboys. Dallas appears to have an opportunity to add Denver’s all-time sack leader.

Miller has a “very strong interest” in joining the Cowboys, Jane Slater of NFL.com tweets. Dallas’ agreement with Gregory falling through points to the organization being prepared to spend money on an edge rusher opposite DeMarcus Lawrence. The Cowboys are open to adding Miller, Slater tweets. This is certainly a situation to monitor, with Miller being one of the top players available.

A Dallas-area native, Miller has a home near the Cowboys’ facility. The Texas A&M alum was previously connected to the Chargers and Broncos, but both have filled their edge slots. The Rams entered the tampering period interested in re-signing Miller. It appears they have company.

The Cowboys hold far more cap space than the Rams, who are over the cap presently. Dallas gave Lawrence a new deal to drop his cap figure by more than $10MM this year, opening a door for an addition on the other edge.

Miller will turn 33 later this month but has been one of this era’s best players. The future Hall of Famer bolstered his credentials with a strong playoff run, completing a stretch of nine sacks in the Rams’ final eight games.
