This offseason, the Cowboys hoped they would be able to extend Tyler Biadasz but they discovered at the Scouting Combine that wasn't going to happen. While discussing offseason plans, Dallas learned Biadasz had a stronger market than anticipated.

That proved to be the case as Biadasz signed with the Washington Commanders for $29.25 million over three seasons. His exit leaves a hole for Dallas with Brock Hoffman sitting as the top option on the depth chart.

Dallas surely won't head into the season without adding another center and while the draft is an option, it could become difficult to rely on that since they're also losing Tyron Smith. What they can do is add someone with enough versatility to start in multiple spots so they can allow the draft to come to them. This brings us to Connor Williams — yes, that Connor Williams.

Like Biadasz, Williams started his career with Dallas but left in free agency after his rookie contract. A former tackle at Texas, Williams played left guard for the Cowboys and then moved to center for the Miami Dolphins. Adding him could give Dallas their new starting center — but they also could draft one should they have Jackson Powers-Johnson or Zach Frazier as their top player available in Round 1.

Going this route means Williams can return to left guard and Tyler Smith would move to his natural spot as the blindside protector. Again, Williams gives them options which is why a reunion makes sense.
