The Cowboys are expected to release veteran quarterback Drew Bledsoe, which will free him to sign with another team and save Dallas $5.5 million against the salary cap. Bledsoe is due a $1 million roster bonus March 2, and the Cowboys do not intend to pay that or the $4.5 million in base salary he is scheduled to make in 2007.
Tom Orsborn talks a little Cowboys, and how a lot of mock drafts have Dallas choosing a CB in the first round. I just don't see this happening, because the only way it happens is if the Cowboys moved Anthony Henry to FS. I'm not a big believer that they will do that. If anything, I think they would choose a FS before a CB in round one and keep Henry where he is. But I actually think they are going with either offensive line or defensive front seven. The article mentions one of the guys I've been keeping tabs on, Ben Grubbs.
There are a couple of good interior line prospects, so by the time the Cowboys are ready to draft they may be able to trade down and still come away with a guy they like on the offensive line. But this is all guesswork, because who they sign in free agency will determine who they pick in the draft.
I think Bum's boy is going to be fairly entertaining while working in the carnival setting that is the Cowboys.
What about your weight, Wade? I noticed you skipped that measurable.
