    I've heard Wade mention that they would love for him to work out because it would save them a roster spot. I think he'll definitely give him the edge in any tie breakers.

    • Any reason why we didn't sign Rackers? He's missed quite a few lately too, but it would just be competition, and it's not like that's probably not our most pressing need at this time.


      We must have a back-up plan, because your not winning a SB without a reliable kicker, New Orleans would of had no chance without Hartley nailing those clutch kicks.

      • Rackers is one of the most accurate kickers in the league...only behind Mare is % over the last 8 years or something. This would solve a huge need for us. We don't even have a guy on our roster who has attempted a NFL kick before...and one of the most accurate kickers is now on the market....makes a ton of sense to me.

        • Interesting article on our OL from last year. Overall very good, but our short yardage still needs work. Makes me wonder if we don't target a mauler for the interior OL instead of OT.

          • Ok-riddle me this. Why am I praying for a signing of Darren Sharper? I know he is old and I know he gets beat some. But I think he would be a huge upgrade from what we had. Not sure what he would be asking, but if a one or two year deal could be had, I am in. Seems to me that he would capitalize with our pass rush.

            If we could just sign an OT (just a guy, not a big name guy) and Darren Sharper I would say we are squared away. You could take a safety if Sharper can't keep up (I say he can), but the beauty of BPA is it seems like a safe bet, usually.

            Is anyone else in on Darren Sharper? I have heard no talk about him, and I can't figure out why. If there are other circumstances I dont know about, please by all means tell me. But if it is just age and a lapse in coverage skills from time to time, I can live with that. Heck, we have been anyways. Right? The guy will come away with the ball some. And we don't get that near enough. Comments would be greatly appreciated on this question.

            • Obviously it depends on how the board plays out, but the Cowboys are not in a great position. Do you guys think that Nate Allen could be a legitimate possibility at #27?

              • I would say yes- and get crucified for it. I like him a lot. One of my favs this year. But everyone else is gonna say it is too early. I am not arrogant enough to think that I am smarter than everyone else, so realistically he will not be picked that high (by everyone else's evaluations.) But I like him alot. A little high for a safety IMO, but if I really wanted him...he is so superior to Taylor Mays in my eyes that yes I would.

                  Depends if you want to read through the smoke or not. But Jerry and Stephen have said we are in a position to go BPA regaurdless of the position outside of QB. If you believe that NO we won't reach on him. However if you wanna call their bluff than I think Allen makes sense. However I find it hard to believe we'd go Allen over Burnett.

                    IIRC, the team wasn't interested when he came up in FA right before he signed with Minnesota. Doesn't make sense for the club to now all of a sudden be interested all these years later.

                    • Gimme Sharper... Let go Sensabaugh.

                        Because Turnovers are about the only thing this defence is lacking in and Sharper can definately contribute a great deal more then what we have currently.

                        I'm not really for or against the move for Sharper. I think the Cowboys would like to pick up a younger guy with the same type of ballhawk skills and groom him there. But there isn't exactly a plethora of them in the league so how can we be expected to draft one.

                        Sign Sharper but draft the top safety at #27 if he is BPA.

                          Are you for real here?? Sensy was excellent in coverage and neutralized the TE almost every week. Sharper cannot cover TE's that way, he's a free lancer. They are a good fit together, but it would be 5 steps backward to sign Sharper and let Sensy go.

                            Sensy is overrated. He had some good play, but I feel that he still has more to prove to get the praise he already gets. He had some very Roy Williams-esque looking highlights this past season. While he some outstanding games, I didn't see the consistency.

                            You're right about them being 2 different types of Safeties though. Sharper is like Deion Sanders when it comes to tackling. lol.

                            Gimme a safety tandem of Sharper and Mays. MONEY!

                              The thing is that Sensy and Sharper play different positions. Now the safety position is pretty vague in the NFL nowadays however Sensy is the SS in our scheme. Sharper is a true FS. Sensy excels in man. Sharper excels in zone reading the QB. Why cut a player and sign a player who plays a different position. Cut Sensy....we just gave him a 2nd round tender...not saying he can't be cut...just saying it isn't happening until after TC if at all. And I don't forsee that happening as he is the best S on our roster.

                              Sharper looked worst than Roy Williams in man last year....he almost cost the Saints the Super Bowl. So I don't get all the love.

                              We didn't pursue him when he left GB...we didn't pursue him when he left MN....and we haven't been linked to him now. It's fun to talk about but it's a safe bet we aren't looking in that direction.

                              • Everyone is saying Dallas is going WR b/c Jerry made some noises about the receivers invited to Vally Ranch this wk.

                                He spent a lot of facetime with Ohio U. WR Taylor Price, so everyone is saying Dallas will take him in the 2nd rd. Uhhhh, checking my PFT mag, he's the 26th-ranked WR in this draft. But if that 4.33 40 time listed is accurate (& it may well be an exaggeration), maybe that's the source of this new interest. Call me overlooking the obvious if I don't point out that Jerry loves to spread this horse manure around every April.

                                BTW the PFW mag says Price tends to body the ball, has no agility, doesnt catch with his hands, & runs awful routes. I think that translates as a project in the NFL & you don't draft projects in the 2nd rd.
