Cowboys free agency rumors 2022: ‘The interest from Von Miller is certainly there’

Will the Cowboys try to fix their miss from earlier in free agency?

NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys lost out on Randy Gregory in an unfortunate way on Tuesday.

Sticking to football and the team’s roster, the reality is that Dallas now has a need at edge rusher opposite of DeMarcus Lawrence (who has a new deal with the team) and they were prepared to spend some money on Gregory to fill it. Who can that player potentially be? There are options and thankfully it is free agency time throughout the NFL.

One name that we have all been afraid to speak out loud for fear of jinxing it is Texas native Von Miller. Just recently ESPN connected him to Dallas in a potential free agency match, but this is the Cowboys. They never spend big money.

Tuesday afternoon brought with it vitriol from Cowboys fans on all sides regarding the Randy Gregory situation, but it also brought news involving Miller and the Dallas Cowboys. NFL Network’s Jane Slater noted that interest from Miller in joining the Cowboys is “certainly there.”

It is worth mentioning that the Denver Broncos - Miller’s first and most notable team - were regarded as a potential place for him to land in free agency. The Broncos traded Miller away during the season and he wound up winning the Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams, but a quick reunion made some sense and Denver is clearly all-in after trading for Russell Wilson.

Obviously the Broncos signed Randy Gregory, though, which takes them a bit out of any sort of sweepstakes for Miller. It is notable that someone on the Denver beat even suggested he could flock to Dallas.

All of this is speculation right now and really just a series of questions being asked out loud. We are again talking about the Cowboys who do not like to spend in free agency, but what happened with Gregory was really embarrassing and creates a need. Perhaps they could make an exception.

Beyond the obvious interest from fans, there is also another person rooting for this to happen. DeMarcus Ware, another common denominator between the Cowboys and Broncos franchises, posted on Instagram minutes before all of this hit the airwaves and said that he had even spoken to Miller while being somewhat coy about the whole thing.

Now Jane Slater is tweeting this.

Could this really happen?
