    Entering his second season, Crawford finally has a number of a defensive lineman: No. 98.

    “The number doesn’t really matter to me,” Crawford said.

    The number might not matter to Crawford, but the position might. In the Cowboys’ 3-4 scheme last season, he was asked to gain weight -- getting up close to 300 pounds -- and be more of a plugger than playmaker.

    He played in every game but he did not have a sack. He was credited with 33 tackles and five quarterback pressures.

    “I felt like I had more in me,” Crawford said. “I could’ve made a lot more plays and helped this team out a lot more.”
