– In about a month, the Cowboys will be gearing up for the start of the free-agent signing period.
Whether or not the Cowboys will be aggressive in signing new players, they will have some decisions to make regarding their own free agents, both unrestricted and restricted.
So here’s a look at the Top 10 Cowboys’ free agents, based on priority to keep in 2013.
10. Ernie Sims (UFA)
– One of the many signed off the street to simply fill in at inside linebacker, he caught on quick and showed some glimpses of why he was once a Top-10 pick. In this 4-3 scheme, he has the versatility to play either position, but could probably be a good fit in the nickel.
9. Kenyon Coleman (UFA)
– Signed mainly to play in the 3-4, coaches would say how underrated and underappreciated Coleman was. After his triceps injury, the Cowboys missed his production as a run stopper. In this scheme, he probably won’t be a great fit. Plus, he turns 34 in April.
8. Victor Butler (UFA)
– He could be much higher on this list depending on Anthony Spencer
’s status. If Spencer doesn’t return, it’s possible Butler could get re-signed, unless he gets starter-money with another team. The scheme shouldn’t matter much for Butler, who plays mostly in the nickel, which is a four-man front regardless.
