The 2014 NFL year officially started on March 11th. Free agents were snapped up at breakneck speed. The Cowboys didn’t exactly get into many bidding wars for big names. They instead focused on finding bargains. Enter early July. Dallas has around 8 million dollars worth of wiggle room under the salary cap and there are still some free agents who can make an impact and help this squad reach the playoffs!
James Harrison OLB
The age IS a concern for the former Bengal and Steeler. He’s 36 but the experience and attitude would outweigh the risk. We don’t have many leaders left on defense. Sean Lee is injured, Hatcher and Ware are gone. I propose James Harrison to help fill the vacancy. Harrison would bring a bit of attitude to the defense as well. He can’t be counted on as a 16 game starter anymore but considering the recent injury woes for Dallas, who can? By all accounts Harrison is a solid citizen and would be an asset on this team playing part time. He would likely sign for the minimum salary and I see that as a bargain, even for a grizzled vet.
