Should Cowboys Sign Vikings Free Agent A

FRISCO - Given the fact that before he landed with the Rams, should they take another swing at another Pro Bowl linebacker in his 30s?Anthony Barr has been a star-caliber player for the Minnesota Vikings defense, and he's now 30 ... with a connection to the Dallas coaching staff ... and still unsigned.Can there be a fit? Walt Weiss Jersey First off, of course - as always - is the money. Barr played at $10 million last year. Even as the Cowboys would seem to have $13 million or so of cap room, a big chunk of that is earmarked for the NFL Draft cla s.So the Cowboys' offer to Barr might be closer to a vet's minimum, as we believe it was for Wagner. That probably won't fly.Then there is the question of where he plays. , and Dallas re-signed Leighton Vander Esch, with Jabril Cox coming back from injury. Parsons is best-used as a che s piece; if there was another linebacker available Terry Steinbach Jersey , it would free him to be more of a pa s-rusher.Except ... that's actually what Barr,the former UCLA star who was takenas the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, is. In fact, as we recall, the Cowboys - who liked Barr in that draft - sort of Glenn Hubbard Jersey thought of him as a pa s rusher first.BarrLVE, MicahEdwardsThat's not a bad thing; in Barr's rookie season, he had 70 total tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles and a touchdown. And then in four consecutive seasons from 2015 through 2018, Barr made the Pro Bowl. (He did so, by Marcus Semien Jersey the way, under the supervision of Minnesota defensive coordinator George Edwards, now a Dallas a sistant.)Scroll to ContinueHe qualified as a Micah helper, or even as "Micah Lite.'' Weak-side linebacker? Rush the pa ser. Drop into coverage. Veteran presence.He has been plagued by injuries as of late; that's why Barr got only a one-year deal last spring. It's likely why he Tony Phillips Jersey 's still on the shelf now. Still,the longer he stays on that shelf, the more viable an idea this becomes. Dallas, for all the cap-related criticism it gets, is actually quite succe sful when it comes to cheap, short-term signings of vets trying to rehab their career. The Cowboys defense today features a host of those guys: Jayron Kearse, Malik Hooker, Vander Esch, Carlos Watkins, Dante Fowler ...Why not try one more?
