Cowboys Have 20 Players With Expiring Contracts

The Dallas Cowboys have 20 players whose contracts will expire after this year. With only seven games left in the Cowboys’ season (do the math) there’s only so much time for these players to effect the team’s interest in re-signing them, or to help their value on the free agent market.

Check out the slideshow for a summary of each player’s current status with the team and what, if anything, they can do to change their stock going forward.

20. Rolando McClain, LB (Age: 28)

Cowboys Headlines - Rolando McClain: Garrett'sAfter incurring a indefinite drug suspension and refusing to report to training camp or any team functions this season, McClain appears to be done with the Cowboys and probably football as a whole. Even if he wants to resume his career, I can’t fathom that Dallas wants him back now.

Woe to the fish of the Alabama lakes and rivers. McClain is coming, and he’s got all of the time in the world.

    I know 1 player not returning, wears a single-digit number… ;^)

      Actually, Chris Jones has one year left on his deal. And Dan Bailey is signed through like 2046. Not sure who else you could be………..

    Right now Sanchez is my preferred future backup.

    If there is garbage time & games upcoming, I think you have to get Romo his reps, probably all of them. If he goes down Sanchez is a veteran option behind Dak. If he holds up, then you have some of the rust off if he were to have to play in the playoffs. And if he wants to be a dern fool and continue his career in 2017, then he might have some recent film to shop around.

    Likely no demand from other teams for Moore coming off the broken leg, so most likely he goes to camp 2017. I like the guy’s moxy and do not mind at all him being around next year as #3 if he shows full physical recovery. Usually you try to stash that #3 on the practice squad, so he would have to clear waivers.

    This also works from the standpoint that Dak is young and durable. It’s a very good unit with Sanchez on the bench and Moore on the PS.

      I wouldn’t mind Moore vs. Sanchez for the backup job next year. Bring in a couple of project players to and let them battle for the third spot. I don’t think Moore has much upside, so if he can’t win the #2 job I’d go with someone younger.

      • Russ_Te

        That’s a good approach also. It would sort of be a battle over what Sanchez has left after a fast start in the NFL but then hitting into rough times, vs how well can Moore play after he got his 2014 starts, outplayed the 2 veteran backups and then had to sit a year with the injury.

        Only thing really favoring Sanchez IMO is that the Cowboys are suddenly a “win now” team, as they were after the 1991 season. You mortgage some future if necessary to get an impact RDE or CB, etc, since you are only probably those players away from dominating the conference for years. You’d hate to have all that riding on an untested playoffs QB, if Dak were to be out at this time of year.
