    Roster depth is all this is.

    We're going to have the deepest DL in the league -- eight roster spots, eight capable backups. Champ-ee-onship.

    Most teams look for back-ups before starters right? We're good.

    Yup, because it's impossible to simultaneously sign backups while negotiating with starters. You must be quite the productive worker-bee. "What? You want me to do TWO things today? Why that's absurd!"

    Seems like a "lighter in the pants" 1T. I've noticed that even the 1T's in this scheme are 300 lbs., instead of your typical 315 lb. plugger. Young guy who was the 1st pick of the 3rd round just a few years back... eh, he's in the Nevis/Marvin Austin category, but we knew we weren't rolling a star 1T out there anyway. Between McClain and Hayden, seems like we're set there.

    The Cowboys are simply going after bargains and scheme fits. I still think the real fix for the defensive line is coming in the draft. In McClain and Mincey, the Cowboys are getting veteran guys to plug into the rotation. I don't think Dallas is looking at them as saviors for the 2014 season, and neither should we.

    McClain's deal hasn't been disclosed yet. Mincey was two years, 4.5 million. I'd suspect something a bit cheaper for McClain. At least Mincey has played 66 games in this league.

    Hope this deal was for minimum and no guarantees

    And this is supposed to impress anyone, how?

    Quick, scour Youtube for Marinelli going to a Pro Day for another DL.

    I'm not trying to impress anybody, just trying to express that maybe, just maybe, Marinelli see's something in him worthy of a contract..

    It's difficult to compare to guys who played college only. Comparing McClain to
    They reportedly guaranteed 2 million of it (Mincey contract). So they expect him to be part of the rotation this year.
