Staff Writer Kevin Brady tried to warn you Thursday morning that free agency won’t be an exciting time for the Dallas Cowboys – but not to get disappointed. With that said, its hard to watch key players from a 13-3 Cowboys team sign elsewhere, and that is exactly what’s happened with left guard Ronald Leary who is on his way to the Denver Broncos.
Broncos to sign G Ronald Leary to a four-year deal worth $35m with $20m gtd, source says. Big money for a guy once lost in the shuffle.
Leary wasn’t expected to be retained by Dallas as they have La’el Collins ready to regain the starting LG position, and they also added former first round pick Jonathan Cooper late in the season for depth at guard.
Ronald Leary finds a deserving four-year deal in Denver, after stepping up admirably and starting for the Cowboys in 2016 following a summer of bad blood between him and the team. The Broncos are in desperate need of offensive line help, and by adding a member of the Space Cowboys, will they attract a new quarterback to run their offense?
The “Tony Romo following Ronald Leary to his new team” story line has been a well discussed one, and it was a topic brought up on our latest episode of The Star Podcast.
For now, the Denver Broncos are getting a solid new starter at left guard, as the Cowboys move through free agency expecting to see even more members of last season’s team trade in the star for a new logo.
Do compensatory picks interest anyone?
