Should the Cowboys pursue a trade with Robert Quinn? – Rocky Garza Jr, Inside The Star
Should Jerry pick up the phone and ask about the 2021 All-Pro DE?
Although the team added Sam “De” Williams and Dante Fowler to help fill the void of DE Randy Gregory, whom the Cowboys failed to re-sign this offseason, the idea of adding the former Cowboys DE Robert Quinn could elevate their pass-rush room tremendously. .
To refresh fans’ memories, in his only season with the Cowboys, Quinn had 11.5 sacks, 34 tackles, 13 TFL (Tackles for Loss), 22 QB hits and 2 FF (Forced Fumbles). Those stats led the team in nearly every category that year (minus tackles as former LB Jaylon Smith led the team with 142), but it was head-scratching after letting Quinn walk.
Fast forward to two seasons later, Quinn remains at the top of his game, and bringing back the 18.5 sacks he had last season with the Bears would be terrifying for opposing offenses. Factor in the 13 sacks of LB Micah Parson and DE DeMarcus Lawrence, who doesn’t always boast the best stats but is still an All-Pro player, we could be talking about the Cowboys having one of the best passing-rush corps of the league.
While some people would be quick to point out that bringing him in would limit the growth of DEs Dorance Armstrong or Williams, Quinn solves their need to rush, and DC Dan Quinn wouldn’t have to go into the season relying on those -this. two so fast.
Reported contract details for Ravens’ deal with DL Brent Urban released – Robert Sobus, Ravens Wire
Baltimore didn’t have to dig deep to sign the former Cowboys defensive lineman.
Urban’s deal was known to be a one-year deal, but reported details of the contract have been made public by The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec as it will be a veteran minimum wage deal.
The NFL details the veterans salary benefit as follows:
“Formerly known as the minimum salary benefit, the veteran salary benefit allows teams to offer a ‘qualifying contract’ to any player with at least four credited seasons at a reduced salary cap. Under this provision , a qualifying contract is a one-year contract equal to the minimum base salary applicable to a player with his number of credited seasons, plus $137,500 in additional compensation (c. increase in 2022).These contracts are charged against the salary cap at the rate of a player with two seasons credited that year.
Urban will certainly fit right in with the Ravens with his veteran leadership and his track record with the team. During his eight seasons in the NFL, the defensive lineman had 107 combined tackles to go along with six sacks.
Cowboys may have found another defensive weapon in the UDFA – Terence Watson, The Landry Hat
The Cowboys might have found a contributor despite not using a pick on him.
The Cowboys’ Isaac Taylor-Stuart journey to a 53-man roster
That flexibility puts him in direct competition with last year’s sixth-round pick Israel Mukuamu, who was a cornerback coming out of South Carolina that the Cowboys were transitioning to play safety. Both will need to be at the top of their game, as only one will eventually make it to this list. Mukuamu has the upper hand, with his experience after one season with the team, but that doesn’t count Taylor-Stuart, whose tenacity and effort and skill set will make this a competition.
Taylor-Stuart as cornerback compares favorably to former New York Giants first-round pick Eli Apple based on his measurements and tests at the combine. If you compare him to league safeties, however, he compares favorably to the Miami Dolphins’ second-round pick last season, Jevon Holland (whom the Cowboys have shown interest in leading to the 2021 NFL Draft). Both are very athletic players in their own right, and for the Cowboys to find a player with that athletic ability is impressive. More importantly, they could have found another one diamond in UDFA.
Cowboys appoint Joe Whitt Jr. and Chris Vaughn to participate in NFL Diversity Networking Program – Calvin Watkins, DMN
Two Cowboys coaches will participate in the inaugural NFL Diversity Networking Program.
Somehow there is negligence when it comes to hiring coaches of color.
The NFL is doing everything it can to increase the numbers, so in this latest attempt, it has created a program where each NFL team has nominated a man or woman to interact with owners and other club staff.
The Cowboys are to send Joe Whitt Jr., the defensive passing game coordinator/defensive backs coach, and Chris Vaughn, who was recently promoted from national scout to assistant director of college scouting in Atlanta.
“It’s been a while since we’ve had the opportunity, where many of our diverse candidates have been able to liaise with our leaders and our property,” said Belynda Gardner, senior director of diversity, equity and the inclusion of the NFL. “And that’s just because there’s a lot of red tape associated with the anti-tampering policy.”
Charean Williams enters the Texas Sports Hall of Fame – Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk
Charean Williams, a Cowboys writer formerly for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, is recognized for her service to the industry.
Saturday night, Charean was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame as part of a group of eight members of the media, including our good friend John McClain, who recently retired after nearly five decades with the Houston Chronicle.
Charean has become a staple here in recent years. She joined us after a long run covering the Cowboys for the Fort Worth Star Telegram. In addition to her daily posts and regular appearances on #PFTPM, she seeks every possible opportunity to remind me of the Hail Mary game (with uncalled pass interference) that propelled the Cowboys to a playoff victory in 1975 against the Vikings. In fact, she just did it again yesterday.
Congratulations to Charéan. We are lucky to have him on the PFT team.
Would Cowboys owner Jerry Jones vote to kick Washington’s Dan Snyder from the NFL? – Mike Fisher, FanNation
Jerry has a decision to make.
NFL owners like to count their money. That includes Jones, who recently proudly voiced the idea that his Dallas Cowboys are now worth “10 billion dollars.”
And now these billionaires who are counting the money are said to be “counting the votes” – towards the ousting of the owner of the Washington Commanders.
Snyder finds himself embroiled in another scandal, but this one involves his owners/partners’ money. He is under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission and the Virginia Attorney General over potentially fraudulent accounting — an alleged act that impacts revenue.
And so …
“We’re counting the votes,” a team owner told Jarrett Bell about USA todayimplying that the owners are considering an ousting of Snyder, which would require 24 votes to force a sale of the organization.
