Cowboys Can't Let DE Dorance Armstrong Hit Free Agency

Despite only starting in one of his 17 appearances, Dorance Armstrong was one of the Cowboys' best pass-rushers in 2023.

The ex-Kansas defender was all over the field this season, registering 20 solo tackles, seven lost yardage tackles, 7.5 sacks, and one defended pass. His 21.0 sacks since the beginning of the 2021 NFL season only trail Micah Parsons (40.5) as far as Cowboys go, proving just how important he's been to the defensive line.

It'd be wise for the Cowboys to re-sign Armstrong considering the state of their defensive line contracts. In addition to Armstrong, Dante Fowler Jr., Johnathan Hankins, and Neville Gallimore are also free agents this offseason. Furthermore, DeMarcus Lawrence, Osa Odighizuwa, and Chauncey Golston are projected to hit the open market in 2025.

If Dallas wants to ensure that its D-line remains among the best next year and beyond, finding a way to lock Armstrong down before free agency opens is a must.
