It turns out I was wrong… We haven’t seen the last of our free agents moves. Today the Cowboys signed former San Diego Chargers Defensive End Igor Olshansky to a 4 year 18 millions dollar contract according to Mickey Spagnola of DallasCowboys.com. Olshansky played under coach Wade Phillips while he was a defensive coordinator in San Diego. This guy is no joke, he is 6-6 and 309 lbs. Perfect to line up against some of the bigger linemen in the NFC east. In 5 years he’s totaled 179 tackles, 11.0 sacks, and 1 interception.
The signing of Olshansky fills a deep void at right end, and takes some pressure off of Hatcher and Bowen. This move wont replace canty, but it will add some serious help to a healthy rotation that has to potential to disturb some quarterbacks and fill those running gaps. All and all I find this to be a great decision by the Cowboys front office.
