Poll: Stay Or Go - Mat McBriar

New, comments

With free agency coming just around the corner, it's time to start looking at our own free agents. We'll start with punter Mat McBriar.

The Good: McBriar was an elite punter for the Dallas Cowboys for years. In 2006 and 2010 McBriar represented the Cowboys in the Pro Bowl. Through the years he's lead the league, or been at the top of the league-leaders, in various punting categories. McBriar is equally good at booming a punt, or nailing an opponent deep in their own territory with precision punts. In normal circumstances, there would be little debate about the Cowboys re-signing him. But...

The Bad: McBriar suffered an injury that is referred to as drop foot. This was caused by a cyst in his left leg and kept him from finishing out the season. Reports vary on how it will affect his career going forward. He recently completed surgery at the Mayo Clinic, and they gave him a clean bill of health.

So the question is, do you re-sign McBriar counting on him being, and staying, fully recovered? Or do you move on and find a new guy? What say you, BTB community?
