Last game for these Dallas Cowboys
Tyrone Crawford, DL
Over the past few years Tyrone Crawford has been a cornerstone of the Dallas Cowboys defensive line. Though he never quite lived up to the expectations of his contract, he’s been consistently the second best lineman on the roster year after year.
Asked to rotate between DT and DE, Crawford has never been able to specialize in any one skillset or body-type, but he’s done what has been asked of him and has been a leader in the locker room.
At this point, Crawford is a shell of his former self and likely to flat out retire in the offseason. His contract is up and Dallas will be looking to get younger and stouter in the offseason.

Chidobe Awuzie, Xavier Woods, and Noah Brown are all likely to be testing the market as well this winter. The Dallas Cowboys don’t seem particularly interested in offering multi-year extensions to them and fresh starts seem to be on the way.
Noah Brown will likely be poached by Jason Garrett in New York, and Xavier Woods has fallen out of favor in Dallas. Dallas would love to get Chido back on a modest 1-year deal and if Chido wants to a guaranteed starting spot where he can boost his value, that may be the smart move for him.
All in all, Dallas Cowboys fans should expect the roster to churn significantly this offseason. With a new coaching staff likely in place on defense, most of them will come on the defensive side of the ball.
Better appreciate these five Dallas Cowboys because Sunday’s game is likely their last.
