Sorry to bring this back up and I know we have touched upon the subject at
I have seen several posts and read in various threads about the Cowboys making moves for some of the big name FA nose tackles, or taking a NT in the 2nd round, but perhaps we already have that player on the roster. I am not talking about Josh Brent who I still see as a back up, but rather about Sean Lissemore. I am sure he has played some snaps in the NT role, he certainly has the size and build at 6-4 and 306 lbs. On the Mothership his bio states
"Lissemore brings a high-motor playing intensity that fits well along a defensive line that also boasts a player known for a similar playing style in Pro Bowler Jay Ratliff."
If the Cowboys eventually move Ratliff to DE, and we either draft a DE in the high rounds or sign a quality DE in FA, with Lissemore at NT surely this would improve our D/L a lot more than spending $20+million plus on a FA NT.
So would Lissemore be a long term solution to be our starting NT without the need to break the bank, or is he better suited to play on the End?
