Ferguson: Playing Footsie With Dallas?

The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting today that contrary to reports in the New York press, the Jets are "privately nervous" that they will lose DT/NT Jason Ferguson when free agency begins on Wednesday. The Jets fear Ferguson's agent may be setting up Ferguson to land in Dallas .



Ferguson is the linchpin of Dallas' proposed defensive moves. The lists that have been leaking in the Metroplex press contain players who fit the 3-4 and the 4-3. It is clear that the Cowboys would like to go 3-4, but have contingency plans to stay in the 4-3 should they miss out on their targeted 3-4 players.



A nose tackle is THE key acquisition to making the 3-4 switch. The Cowboys won't change schemes unless they can find an anchor, and if Ferguson comes, expect the Cowboys to make a push for a corner and an inside linebacker, at minimum.
