We have gaping holes on this roster and cap issues. We just gave him a huge deal. He's not going anywhere and we aren't going to draft an OT in the first 4 rounds so he can be 3rd string when we have our bookends in place for the next 5 years.
Heck, I really like the growth Parnell showed last year. He actually looked pretty good for such a raw player in preseason. I wouldn't be shocked if he beats Free out for the starting role in 2013 and we trade Free next offseason.
That's how I see things.
I doubt the Cowboys are considering a tackle anywhere in the first 3 rounds.
