The free agency tampering period for 2021 is underway and already some deals are being made. The Cowboys are unlikely to get involved this early in signing players, but some of their free agents may leave, It appears that is the case as offensive tackle Cam Erving is reportedly agreeing to a deal with the Carolina Panthers.

It’s a two-year deal worth up to $10 million.

Nothing is official in free agency until the start of the league year which is on March 17th at 4 pm ET, but it looks likely the Cowboys will lose a depth piece on their offensive line.

Erving had an injury-plagued season in Dallas in 2020, only playing in six games. If he could have stayed healthy he would have had plenty of playing time with the injuries to Tyron Smith and La’el Collins. Those injuries led to playing time for Brandon Knight and Terence Steele, who may end up being the swing tackles that the Cowboys originally signed Erving to be.

In other news, the Cowboys are reportedly interested in a former Dan Quinn player. He’s a safety.

Kazee spent four years in Atlanta when Quinn was the head coach. Safety is certainly a need for the Cowboys with Xavier Woods being a free agent. Kazee was a starter in Atlanta but tore his Achilles in early October of the 2020 season.
