The Cowboys have been trying to decide what position they need to focus on in the upcoming NFL draft. Some people think it’s the quarterback position due to Tony Romo growing older and being more prone to injuries. If they choose this route, some of their options would be Jared Goff from California, Carson Wentz from North Dakota State, and Paxton Lynch from Memphis. A quarterback would be a good addition to the team, however, some people think it’s more risky to draft a quarterback. Picking up a quarterback in free agency could be the way to go. These quarterbacks have already proven their abilities so there is less risk. Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick are two of the notable quarterback free agents.
The other options for the draft would be to draft a defensive player to help out the struggling defense from last year. The Cowboys are lacking cornerbacks as well as pass rushers on the defensive side of the ball. Jalen Ramsey from Florida State and Vernon Hargreaves are among the top cornerbacks available. The Cowboys will have all of these names on their list, and it will be a tough decision on who to choose. We will just have to wait for the draft to see what position they want to address the most.
The Dallas Cowboys are about to have 16 players become free agents by the end of March. The management and coaching staff are trying to figure out who to keep and who to let go. It is never an easy job when it comes to cutting players. The Cowboys are always an interesting team to watch when it comes to the off-season and free agents. A couple of free agents that the Cowboys are rumored to be interested in are Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel. However, Manziel has probably been shifted to the bottom of their list due to off field issues. Robert Griffin III would be a very interesting experiment in Dallas due to his background at Baylor, and because he grew up in Copperas Cove, Texas. Griffin has even said that he would love to play for Dallas if he ever got the chance. Griffin has proven to be a valuable quarterback in the NFL. In his rookie season he took the Washington Redskins to the playoffs which was completely unexpected. Throughout his career he has been plagued by injuries, but hopefully he is on the healthy side now. I would love to see Griffin come to Dallas and back up Tony Romo for the rest of his career. The Cowboys may need a quarterback sooner than people think, and Griffin could be the perfect match.
I chose the Dallas Cowboys as my topic because they are my favorite sports team. I am a die-hard fan. Being a Cowboys’ fan runs in the family, and it would not go over well if I had supported another team. The Dallas Cowboys became a franchise in 1960 when they entered the NFL. At first, they were bringing people off the street to come play for them, but after a while they started to attract big name players. They won two Super Bowls in the 1970’s, and three in the 90’s. The 90’s were the glory years for the Dallas Cowboys and fans everywhere are waiting to witness the new era of the Cowboys. Each season it seems like they have a lot of potential, but recently injuries have plagued them. They hope to get things going in the years to come, and Dallas Cowboys’ fans are praying that they do.
