Free Agent DE Chris Long Set To Visit Cowboys On Wednesday

Cowboys Headlines - Free Agent DE Chris Long Set To Visit Cowboys On Wednesday 1

It may only be March 15th, but the Dallas Cowboys are sorely in need of a pass rush.

Many people wanted them to go spend some big money on the biggest names on the market, but despite the "Jerry will spend whatever it takes" moniker the Cowboys have been relatively frugal in Free Agency so far.

Most of their moves have been re-signing their own, and to be fair to the opening line of this they did go out and add former Eagle Cedric Thornton to be their new 1-Tech Defensive Tackle.

Cowboys Headlines - Free Agent DE Chris Long Set To Visit Cowboys On Wednesday

Getting after the quarterback is the bread, butter, plate, and glass of milk in Rod Marinelli's defense. There is currently some talent in the pass rush department on the Cowboys, but it isn't exactly in bulk supply.

That could change when former Ram (St. Louis, Los Angeles, whatever you wanna call those glorified goats) Chris Long visits the Cowboys on Wednesday. Long has already visited with the Redskins, Falcons, and Patriots in his attempt to find a new home.

Hopefully the Cowboys will be able to work out a deal with Long. The limited talent on the defensive line has potential, but DeMarcus Lawrence is coming off of surgery, Randy Gregory is suspended for the first four games of the season, and after that there are really only a bunch of question marks.

Perhaps Chris Long can turn those into an exclamation point!

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

    The Boys do not recognize a good player ,when they see one …They will be in the same spot , they were in 2015. J.J. and his boy don't know football ,like they thing they do. It is not the players ,it's the Coaching staff that suck .

    • Bryson Treece

      That's a bold statement considering they were NFC East champs in 2014, just a season ago. Jerry and Stephen and Will and Jason picked the players on that team the same as any other. What you're upset about, in my estimation, is that the Cowboys are shifting from a flashy, in your face market team to a conservative, foundational team the likes of the new England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers. It's frustrating, I agree, but how on earth can anyone not believe it's necessary to be fiscally responsible? Thanks for reading, Robert.

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
