Annual tradition dictates that the Dallas Cowboys must sit the first few days of free agency out and then start to get involved, and because they believe so much in the pageantry of the NFL, America’s Team complied for yet another offseason.
In all seriousness, the Cowboys were rather chill for the first couple of days this past week and didn’t really start to dance until they heard their music on Thursday. We are now at the point of free agency where bargains can be found, and those are the Cowboys’ favorite songs.
The sweet tunes of Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, and Malik Hooker were heard in the distance as the weekend kicked off. There are seemingly no days off at The Star in Frisco though as the Cowboys spent Saturday partly appeasing a majority of fans.
Fan grades are in for the Dallas Cowboys signing Keanu Neal and the majority approve
If Dallas Cowboys fans ran their favorite team it is highly likely that the roster would look very different. The team would be more involved in free agency, but ultimately the organization’s current brain trust doesn’t particularly like that aspect of team building.
The Cowboys did strike on Saturday by landing Keanu Neal on a one-year deal worth $5M, to an undefined position in Dan Quinn’s defense (his former head coach with the Atlanta Falcons).
We wanted to know what the best group of Cowboys fans thought about the signing. We asked you here at BTB and the majority is down with Keanu Neal joining the squad. Cheers to that.
It really is hard not to like this move for the Cowboys. Neal has an injury past that makes committing to only a one-year deal prudent. 2021 offers Neal the chance to show what he can do under one of the league’s biggest spotlights and it offers the Cowboys the opportunity to get a quality player whom their defensive coordinator knows well (and how to use very well at that), all potentially leading to a 2023 compensatory pick. Win, Win, Win.
There is a case to be made that this is the best free agent signing to date for the Cowboys, although considering how inactive they have been that isn’t necessarily saying a whole bunch. Still, it seems that the majority want to celebrate the newest Dallas defender.
