If the season started today, Doug Free would be our starting RT. The Cowboys are supposedly in the market for a new RT; however, they just let Tyson Clabo slip through their fingers. Clabo signed with the Miami Dolphins today, so you can scratch him off the list. The Cowboys still have options with Eric Winston and Winston Justice, but the longer the Cowboys wait the closer they are to wrecking the right side for the 2013 season.
Sure you can lower Doug Free’s cap hit by getting him to agree to a pay cut, but his play or lack thereof remains, and that should horrify Cowboys fans. Free is garbage. The Cowboys rolled the dice during the draft and they continue to after the draft and we’re about to pay the price if this dude stays on the team. We should have signed Clabo – he’s gone now. So, we better get Eric Winston in here and stop screwing around! Winston knows the zone-blocking scheme and is a durable player.
Jerry Jones said he wanted this RT issue to be addressed during a post draft conference and its been a whole week now. The Cowboys better make a move this week. I like what we did with the Frederick pick, but you have to address the RT spot. Seriously. Get it done Jerry.
