Cowboys free agency: Dallas reportedly bringing back Cam Fleming

Dallas is keeping around their Tyron Smith insurance.

The Dallas Cowboys have yet to bring in a big outside free agent, but they’re doing a lot of in-house work. Shortly after the new league year officially began on Thursday it was announced that they are bringing back offensive lineman Cameron Fleming.

This is great news for a team in the Dallas Cowboys that has a left tackle in Tyron Smith that has dealt with injuries in recent memory. Tyron is the best in the league when totally healthy, but if he’s not ready to go you can’t have your quarterback’s blind side vacant. Fleming helps ensure that that is not the case.

According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the deal is worth up to $8.5M. That’s not bad to help yourself sleep better at night knowing things are solid on the left side.

Dallas brought Fleming in after he had a nice run with the New England Patriots. Looks like he’ll have at least a little run with the Cowboys, he’s already got one division title and likely wants a whole lot more.
