What about the defensive line?

New, comments

Todd Archer talks about the defensive line in his latest article (sub. required) and thinks that Greg Ellis will be back and La'Roi Glover might be gone. That's the conventional wisdom coming out of Dallas. Who does he think are possible targets in free agency?

There are some available with Baltimore's Maake Kemoeatu fitting the bill the best. The New York Giants would like to re-sign Kendrick Clancy but could find themselves in a fight to keep him. Damione Lewis and Ryan Pickett, former first-round picks in St. Louis, were disappointments, but teams tend to give second chances to players like that.

I agree, I've been touting Maake Kemoeatu for a while now. He's 6-5 about 340 lbs. and has good agility and a motor. Sounds like a nice fit at as a 3-4 NT. He might end up being a little expensive though, so I wouldn't be surprised if they go with what they have and draft some depth.

I didn't comment on this article by JFE, mainly because I totally agree with her. Drew Brees will not be in Dallas next year. But I guess some people are speculating so I will go on record also. There will be 3 QB's on the roster next year, and they will be Drew Bledsoe, Tony Romo and Drew Henson. Well, let me throw a caveat in there, if Henson totally bombs in Europe, then something might happen. But I doubt that will be the case, Henson will do well enough to continue the experiment in Dallas. Even if he does bomb, they won't spend the kind of money Brees is likely to get.

Scratch one potential free agent kicker off the list.
