According to published reports, the race to sign Davis has come down to two teams: The Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers .
For either team, Davis makes sense on paper: The Cowboys need a left guard and the 49ers need a right guard. Not only does his acquisition potentially address the needs of both organizations, but both clubs have enough room under the cap to throw some serious cash at him.
Here is another tidbit on the cowboys and Leonard Davis.
Cowboys | Talks with L. Davis heating up
Thu, 1 Mar 2007 23:22:00 -0800
John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports talks between the Dallas Cowboys and free agent OT Leonard Davis (Cardinals) are heating up. Davis has not scheduled a trip because he is negotiating with at least three NFC East teams.
One reason I like Davis is his versatility. Sure he's not a superstar left tackle, but he certainly does have more experience at the position than Pat McQuistan, and I definitely think he's better than an againg Jason Fabini. I'm a little apprehensive about his ability to play guard, but something tells me that he could manage. Nevertheless, I'd be more comfortable with a pure guard like Derrick Dockery.
We still aren't sure, however, that Rivera is completely gone. That's another reason why Davis would make sense...we could sign him and then plug him at whatever spot he is needed, whereas if you did sign a Dielman or Dockery, you're basically giving him the starting spot. I'm not sure the organization is ready to do that yet.
