Dallas Cowboys' Off-Season: Other Than Dance Lessons, What Do They Need?
The Cowboys have a couple needs this off-season, one of which is no longer a linebackers coach since yesterday they hired West Texas A&M assistant Bob King to replace the departed Dat Nguyen.
Head coach Wade Phillips (who knew he had a fun, playful side?) and staff are off to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis next week.
Other than re-signing receiver Miles Austin, what are the Cowboys' priorities?
I say it's:
1. Offensive tackle - I know Doug Free played well, but Flozell Adams is in decline and there's no way the Cowboys will enjoy another almost injury-free season like they did in 2009.
2. Kicker - Since, grudgingly, we have to have one, might as well get a good one. I think they should re-sign Nick Folk for another go round, you?
3. Safety - Ken Hamlin was awful at times and, though Adam Ball was sufficient in spots, they could use a play-making ball-hawk in the secondary.
