Should Cowboys Pursue Recently Released LB Mychal Kendricks?

After failing to find a partner for Linebacker Mychal Kendricks, the Philadelphia Eagles decided to the six-year veteran instead. Should the Dallas come calling?

As Adam Schefter states, Mychal Kendricks isn’t expected to be unemployed very long. It’s very rare that someone as talented and consistent as Kendricks hits the open market this late in the , but someone is going to scoop him up pretty quickly.

The Dallas Cowboys could definitely use someone of Kendricks pedigree to add to their mix of linebackers in 2018. There are a lot of questions surrounding the position and Kendricks’ addition would without a doubt fortify the position moving forward.

Right now, there is only one linebacker whose role is 100% set in stone, . He will once again start on the weak side (WILL), but we all know it probably won’t be for an entire season. His struggles to remain healthy are a concern, especially now has moved on.

There are also questions surrounding where and the Cowboys first-round pick will play. Many believe Smith will move to the strong side (SAM) and Vander Esch will start in the middle (MIKE). But, there are still concerns about Smith’s health and if Vander Esch is ready to start right away.

That is where Mychal Kendricks would definitely help. I believe he can play all three LB positions in the Cowboys 4-3 . And, his starting experience would allow the to take the cautious approach with Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch.

I believe the Dallas Cowboys should absolutely be interested in a player of Kendricks caliber, but in the end it’s going to come down to money, as it always does. Unfortunately, Kendricks’ asking price is probably going to be too steep for the Cowboys.

Dallas has been more frugal with the way they spend their money these past few years. This likely means Cowboys shouldn’t get their hopes up that Mychal Kendricks will be wearing silver and blue anytime soon. But, it doesn’t hurt to pick up the phone to see what it would take to make him a Dallas Cowboy.

Do you think the Dallas Cowboys pursue LB Mychal Kendricks?
