Just a few days ago Cowboys offensive line Coach Bill Callahan stated that Mackenzy Bernadeau was slated to be our RG, well things may have just changed. Bernadeau had hip surgery that was done to avoid it becoming a chronic issue. At first glance this sounds like a red flag, but the Cowboys knew about this ahead of time when they brought him in, and likely knew this was going to happen; however, this does open the door wide open for the RG position.
We could see Bill Nagy, David Arkin, and Ron Leary battle it out for that guard spot, and to me, its anyone’s guess who will be our starting RG now – we just don’t know now. Its a clean slate now, and with Bernadeau out for all most of the offseason leading up to training camp someone has the opportunity to nab that spot. Bernadeau is coming in new into Callahan’s system like all the other guys, so it’ll be up to him to re-solidify his spot now.
There could also be a scenario where someone does step up and just wins the spot outright, in which case, Bernadeau could make a move to center, a spot he played while he was in Carolina a few years ago. The offensive line camp battles just got a whole lot more intriguing.
