"Sure, the Cowboys would have an interest in Tank Johnson. And why not, based on a talented player, particularly a defensive lineman, coming in at a low financial risk. If he screws up again, the boot is salary-cap painless. How about it, Jeff Ireland? "Any interest would be pretty minimal right now," said the Cowboys director of scouting Wednesday. "There were a lot of issues coming out of college with this guy, and now it's been compounded by what went on with the Bears. I don't think we'd be interested at all."
I don't think Tank would fit a 3-4. He's purely a gap penetrator and doesn't play with leverage very well. He'd have to gain 30 lbs to play the NT and even then he'd be playing against his skillset. At DE he might get pressure on the QB but would be terrible at taking on blocks.
