It is not a splash signing by any means, but a true stalwart is reported to be coming back to the Dallas Cowboys.
Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of... https://t.co/yTQbMYyrIv— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) March 19, 2018
While his role is obviously a limited one, no one does it any better. Ladouceur has been perfect in his career with the Cowboys, with no bad snaps to date in his career. He is a key part of the success Dan Bailey has had in his career as a place kicker. It was actually a no-brainer for the team to try and retain him, and was even predicted by someone around here earlier today.
This signals some more cap moves very soon. According to OverTheCap, Dallas currently has less than $1 million in space (the savings from Orlando Scandrick’s departure will not hit the books until June 1). The expected Travis Frederick “switch flip” looks to be the next thing they do at any moment and there also could be additional releases such as James Hanna. [UPDATE: There is some dispute if the Cowboys have already done the Frederick restructure. Some have it reported as done and Spotrac.com lists it as done. Others say it’s technically not passed through yet. Either way, the Cowboys will have or have about $8 million to play with.]
Things are indeed, finally, starting to happen for the Cowboys.
