    Of the free agent signings by the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, outside linebacker Justin Durant could be the biggest. Durant was signed as a veteran to compete with Alex Albright for the other outside linebacker spot.

    "I'm pretty comfortable," Durant said about getting to know the defense. "It's a little different from the schemes that I ran before. Just language and different ways of playing certain techniques. I'm getting it pretty good, there are certain principles that I know, I just have to get the minor details that certain coaches want me to do."

    Durant should have a familiarity with the 4-3 defense because he played against current Cowboys defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, when he was the defensive coordinator with the Chicago Bears.

    He's a guy who gets a lot of tackles, and if he proves he can cover well, he could be a really good player.
