With Henry Melton Signing, Dallas Cowboys get it right

I give Jerry Jones enough grief on this site, and (I think) rightfully so. It is only just, then, when Jones & Co. get something right, to say as much. The Dallas Cowboys got it right with the signing of free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton. Here’s why… Melton is an upgrade over Jason Hatcher […]

Dallas dumps DeMarcus Ware

The Dallas Cowboys are a mediocre team coming off an historically bad season, defensively. So, it makes perfect sense to cut one of the best—and most productive—defensive players in the history of the franchise. Right? Absolutely, it does. DeMarcus Ware, for all the wonderful things he has done in a Cowboys uniform, is coming off […]

He has languished on the bench as a second- and third-string wide receiver for the entirety of his career. […]

By most accounts, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys have had a pretty good off-season. Consider… They rid themselves of the one-man wrecking crew, so he could be unleashed on the poor, unsuspecting slobs in Buffalo; They cut their losses with washed-up SS Roy Williams; They addressed the safety issue with Sensabaugh; They lost Canty, but […]

After knee-jerking about Jerry Jones’ signing of the threepeat offender, Gerald Sensabaugh the other day, let me give a little balance by commending the oft-maligned GM for signing Sensabaugh to a sensible contract. Clarence Hill, writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports that the former Jacksonville Jaguars safety has signed a one-year, $1.75 million deal. […]
