Report: Front Office Wants To Make DE Aldon Smith A Longterm Dallas Cowboy

2020 has been a disaster for the Dallas Cowboys.

Despite high expectations and what we thought was a talented roster, this year's team has completely fallen apart. Now heavily injured and sitting at 2-5, the started a bit of a fire-sale on the defensive side of the ball.

First, they traded away defensive end , who they had traded for earlier in the . Then they attempted to both and before ultimately cutting both players.

With the Cowboys shedding these veteran guys in an effort to acquire draft picks and give their young players a chance, many began wondering what the team would do with Aldon Smith. Well, with the rumors dying down around , it appears that Aldon Smith is in the team's longterm plans.

's Mike Garafolo reported this week that the Cowboys are standing firm behind Smith, who has had a career turnaround in Dallas this season. He also added that the team is hoping to reach a with Smith eventually.

Ian Rapoport then added onto this , stating that the pass rusher hungry actually called the Cowboys to inquire about Aldon Smith. It would seem that the Cowboys said they were not interested.

Smith has been one of the few bright spots during this lost year, returning after multiple years away from the sport to the tune of four already this season.

Aldon Smith and form a tough defensive end duo, and with returning from this group has a chance to shine the rest of the year. Now let's hope the team can keep these guys all healthy and active, while rebuilding the interior of their during the offseason.

Smith is a feel good story in a bad 2020. But, it is foolish to consider him a future core piece.
He has already started to decrease in effectiveness as would be expected from a player his age.
Good teams do not confuse one year rentals as stars.

I’m inclined to agree with siempre. Smith came out of the gate like gangbusters , but has tailed off somewhat. I still think he is our best lineman. However I would be careful about overplaying him at his age.

Also he’ll be chasing his first big contract, do we wanna engage in a bidding war for him?
