    You also wait them out until the dreg period in free agency where they will take less guaranteed money. But these were the plums.

    Let's not forget for every George Selvie there was no shortage of scrubs playing like &%#^$ out there last year.

    Low cost deal to add depth at position of severe need. If it works out, they get cheap production. If it doesn't, then at worst they lose a roster spot for depth purposes.

    Why is everyone upset again? I prefer this to pissing money away in FA like they did on Carr.

    I don't know if this thought belongs here but with the way FA is looking and the draft projecting, I'm really hoping Tyrone Crawford is going to play DE this year.

    Odds are we can solidify the DT position a little better this offseason.

    I'm not expect a lot out of this kid... I question if he's going to get more than 30 snaps a game, but he did have 11 sacks in 2011.

    The Texans declined to tender McClain in restricted free agency, which would've only cost them $1.431 million. A smallish (6'2/293) defensive tackle going on age 26, McClain graded out slightly above average in Pro Football Focus' 2013 run defense grades, and negatively as a pass rusher. He's not going to make a difference in Dallas, but the Cowboys simply need bodies up front. Mar 12 - 1:35 PM

    We want our DTs to rush the QB first, then read the run. Sounds like a perfect fit.

    If he's been signed for anymore than the vet minimum with no bonus it's a joke.

    What's dumb are these kind of posts. It really amazes me how little this board understands the value of inexpensive dline depth. It's only what won Seattle the Super Bowl.

    I believe it was 8 sacks in 2011. He's a good pass rusher. Probably better than Selvie.

    I guess if you consider $4.5 mil for 2 years cheap.

    I consider vet minimums are "inexpensive dline depth"....not multi million in contracts.

    At this juncture I would think that's where he (Crawford) will end up playing.
