They definitely need to beef up their defence if they want to start bagging wins. Their general manager Jerry Jones said on a radio interview that the chances of trade were unlikely for now.
“It’s pretty well known, I imagine, around the league, some of the issues we got with our defensive front,” he said. “So if some other GMs or personnel people are sitting there saying, ‘I bet Dallas might be interested in this lineman,’ then their wheels are turning, too.”
“That could still happen, but we’re not going to be in a position, and don’t want to give up a high draft pick to get a defensive lineman right now,” he concluded.
If they want to strengthen the defensive line, the Cowboys will be exploring the choices they have in the free agent market and they have already made one move to show they are serious about solving the problem. They signed Green Bay Packer’s defensive end Jarius Wynn to their team. Yet, the big gun in the market is All-Pro defensive lineman Richard Seymour. Even though it seems that he will make a good fit and plug the holes they want to fill, the actual chances of him getting hired by the Cowboys remain thin.
Seymour was also a candidate for the San Francisco 49ers who tried the negotiations but did not agree to what Seymour wanted. The rumours are that he wants $5 million, which seems a pretty high price for a player.
Seymour also thinks that he has had a good run and it is now time to call it quits, retire and end his career on a good note. He is working on getting a pilot license in Atlanta, where he is for now with his family. But he is willing to come back if the money is good, as he said. But he won’t be available for long now.
“It’ll be a family decision. I’ll continue to entertain offers up until Week 10, looking for the right situation,” he said.
