It appeared that the Cowboys looked to be about done in free agency, but not so fast. Last night, ESPNDallas reporter Calvin Watkins reported that the team is interested in Erik Walden. He was a Wade Phillips draft pick, selected in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Walden never made the team that summer and was cut. He has been around the league playing for four different teams.
Walden looks like a late bloomer who is beginning to figure it out. He had zero sacks before the Packers signed him, but he has had six sacks in two years there. At 6-2, 250, Walden looks like he would be a fit as a pass rusher in the 3-4 defense.
ESPNDallas Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys are interested in another Green Bay player. This time it is cornerback Jarrett Bush. He is primarily a special teams player, but a very good one. Bush only has three career interceptions and plays a backup role. Maybe the Cowboys are looking at replacing Alan Ball and upgrade their special teams play. Ball never developed into the player the Cowboys thought he would. In my opinion, Bush is as good or better then Ball. Both are reserve cornerbacks who provide depth and play special teams, but Bush may have the better ball skills. If you remember the Super Bowl the Packers won a few years ago, he stepped in and played good football for them.
The Cowboys may not be done in free agency after all...
