    Not sold on Rayford, but I agree on Bass and Selvie.
    I think Selvie is underrated on this board. He had 7 sacks and 45 tackles last season. That is not bad production from the SDE. In 9 years, Tony Tolbert had only 3 seasons where he had more than 7 sacks (7.5, 8.5. and 12), and he is pretty well thought of around here. Melton is still a question mark to me.

    Rayford is going to have to have a heck of a camp to make the team because the Cowboys get their 2015 7th round pick back if he doesn't make the roster (I think.) He was unimpressive last season and did not live up to the hype.

    No, he just had to be on the 2013 roster for a certain number of games. I think he hit that number and the Cowboys owe them the pick.

    He had 5 sacks for the Colts in the '13 preseason, came over from the Arena League where he had 22.5 sacks in three years; lot of upset Colt fans when the trade happened. So much for the "diamond in the rough" story. Congrats to the Colts on trading high.

    Looked it up and you are correct. Had to be on roster 5 weeks. I still think he doesn't make the final 53 though. We've already cut him once (nobody picked him up off waivers though and we re-signed him to practice squad.)

    He was "Broadusized" as a great pickup.

    That hype was just riding the wave of disappointment and sorrow that happened after Bass went down.

    I don't think Broaddus has ever done one of those write ups after somebody signs off that street that does not make them look like a Pro Bowler.

    We could sign Bozo The Clown and he would write the following:

    I'm cool with that also, but I think it makes the most sense for Spencer to come back on an incentive deal for the team and for the player.

    I think bass wil be a pleasant surprise to most ppl. I think Crawford will play well. I expect 6-8 sacks from selvie. Same from Melton. Hopefully we can add a couple more guys theough the draft and plug a few holes defensively. At least were not overpaying guys. Statistically I think we will be better in 2014. I don't think we've got any worse this offseason.

    Also agree on Selvie; he is the only player coming back health and actually produced when given the opportunity.

    I do not, however, have confidence in anyone else on the d-line -- including Melton. All the current d-line players (except Selvie) Dallas is counting on have question marks about their health or reliability. Some show promise but can't stay on the field while others have produced (Brent) but are unreliable.

    I am counting on Dallas to come away with a few impact d-linemen in May.

    Those pushing the panic button over our current group of starting DL's is getting old. I'll be glad when that weekend is over.

    Definitely a possibility. I mentioned that in the original post, even if Spencer misses the first four games of the season you can still play Crawford and Mincy (and possibly a draft choice) at SDE until Spencer is ready.

    I think it makes the most sense for Spencer to come back to Dallas because he knows the defense and coaches. It makes sense for Dallas because they need DEs who can rush the passer. The money will talk at the end of the day but I do think Spencer is a Cowboy in 2014.
