Eatman: This Free-Agent Wish List More Like A Pipedream
DallasCowboys.com Staff Writer
IRVING, Texas - Lists, lists, lists.
That's about all we've got anymore. Top 10 of this. Top 12 of that. Five guys to remember for this and seven players who will compete for that.
I guess that's where we are these days in all of sports. It's not good enough to just see or read about a certain player or position. But let's rank them and see where it stands compared to others.
That's really our society in general. We're always trying to see how one thing stacks up to another. Nothing wrong with that.
This week, I figured I'd get into the main topic we're all thinking about anyway - and that's free agency. When - and yes it's looking more like a "when" than an "if" - this lockout comes to an end, the free-agent signing period will likely be upon us soon after.
So just who will be on this team a month from now? That's rarely a question asked in late June. If this team gets to training camp on time, there will likely be 10-15 new players on the roster, including a handful of significant veteran free agents...
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
To compete for the playoffs, Dallas has to improve here: Only four sacks against Eli Manning over the past six games!
