Could The Cowboys Sign NaVorro Bowman?

The San Francisco 49ers put an end to an era by releasing Linebacker NaVorro Bowman this Friday. It was a surprising move by San Francisco, no doubt. But, it makes a lot of sense for them. Rookie Reuben Foster will be able to take over and they’ll give their beloved veteran a chance to find a new team. Perhaps, a Super Bowl contending team.

Naturally, a lot of NFL franchises will be interested in such a noteworthy free agent. He is an instant-impact player in just about any defense that needs a middle linebacker for their team.

Dallas Cowboys fans always want this team to sign just about every big-name FA available, and most of the time, this team isn’t interested on them.

Well, NaVorro Bowman is a guy who they will be definitely interested on. Or at least, they should be.

We all know this football team has a lot of problems, but defense is the biggest one. With three losses through the first five weeks of the season, the Cowboys have a chance to improve Marinelli’s squad.

While a big part of Cowboys Nation argues how the defensive line and the secondary are the biggest needs for this team, linebacker might be weaker at this point.

Sean Lee has missed the last couple of weeks to a hamstring injury, and without him… we all know the answer.

Jaylon Smith has been playing as the middle linebacker for the Cowboys all season and well… he doesn’t seem to be ready. He might be a great LB down the road, but now he shouldn’t be starting at all. He is hurting this defense.

If the Cowboys sign Bowman, they can play him as the MIKE, keep Sean Lee as the WILL, and there is your nickel defense. You give Hitchens some snaps too, and take it easy with Jaylon, who could use more time to get to his old Notre Dame shape.

It’s not common to see Jerry Jones’ team go out there and sign an expensive, older free agent when there are more than a couple of teams interested. This front office isn’t into bidding wars that much.

However, for a team that has had a pretty slow start, a struggling defense and a lot of drama off the field, this could turn into a positive acquisition. Going after him would be a good thing for the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Fred Eriole

    Sign him, a.s.a.p.

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      Haha, I know that feeling.

  • Pete186

    How could we not sign him given he played at Penn State with LEE. IF healthy we should pounce on him. We have 10 Mill Cap space to burn.

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      I agree, it could be a great addition.

  • Tracy Prater

    What’s there to discuss? Sean Lee, reach out to your buddy. Jerry, get out the checkbook.

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      Haha, let’s make this happen Cowboys!

  • Randy Martin

    I read that Broaddus said Bowman is a liability in coverage. I think we can use him in everything else he brings

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      He would help this run defense A LOT.

      • Charles Shapley

        We need coverage bro, more than anything, though he would help out of Lee keeps getting hurt…

  • Rodney Simpson

    Great idea but if he can’t cover we don’t need him that much our issue is the middle of the field teams are exploiting that space in pass and be run. If they don’t make adjustments real fast we are in big trouble

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      Our run defense is far from good, he could fix that.

  • Scottie

    By signing him it can only help, it can’t get no worse

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      I agree, thanks for reading!

  • Not your goat

    Fisher said Thatcher was unhappy about not being on the field and we probably wouldn’t sign him because he wouldn’t want to come here and be a situational linebacker but he wasn’t just sitting pass plays, they were taking him out for entire series’.

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      Visiting Dallas after visiting Oakland, that would be awesome.

  • Not your goat


  • Joshua

    Sign him, you need to face the eagle twice

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      Make it happen, Cowboys!

  • Will

    Rest of season deal only, and I’m happy. More than that, not so much

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      That’s fair.

  • Kenneth Zimmerhanzel

    They should sign him today! Jaylon Smith is far from ready and is hurting the defense at the moment! This would buy time for him to recover fully and learn the position. If you have watched any of the meltdowns on defense a major part of it is Jaylon and Jeff Heath! Pleas upgrade these two positions! Heath should be replaced by the Colorado Kid or Woods! Jaylon by Bowman, because we do not have any other linebackers we can trust! Lee has always been hurt and Hutchins is good but not great! If we could get a Lee, Biwman and Hutchins on the field at one time then we would be pretty good! Someone needs to admit that Jaylon is not ready! It is not his fault and hopefully he will progress to a good player but he is miserably inept at this time!

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      I 100% agree.

  • Michael Walker

    This is a NO-BRAINER Jerry get the deal done. You idiot Donald Trump puppet.

  • Tristan Hays

    I wish you and I all know this isn’t going to happen! The higher ups with this team don’t make these moves at all anymore and haven’t for years!! They have too much faith in what we habe right now! Like this team will dramatically just turn it completely in a game or two! We will end up 8-8 this year or I even think worse. Same ole shit just another year…

    • Mauricio Rodriguez

      He’s visiting Oakland on Monday and then he’ll visit Dallas, reportedly. This could happen.
