    Anyone have a list of the free agent OL that will be available this offseason? I'm hoping we draft one with our first or second rounder and get a top OL in free agency.

    Jake Long is gonna hit the market, but he'll probably re-sign. Ryan Clady from Denver, Sebastian Vollmer from New England (he's also a right tackle). They'll want some major payday and we're so screwed with the cap so it's unlikely we sign any big free agent offensive linemen. I'd say the more realistic approach would be to draft one.

    Andre smith, Phil loadholt, Gosder cherldrius, Andy Levitre, and Kraig Urbik are a few but all are in current contract talks.

    Best thing to do is focus on OL with the first three rounds. If there isn't a top defensive difference maker then teade back a stock pile picks for both lines. You can find day one starting OL and DL in the late 1st to early 3rd, especially I'm this upcoming draft.

    Free will be a Cowboy in 2013 plain and simple. Those wanting to see something different put a post it over your tv when he's on there and you wont see him.

    I see maybe a guard in FA maybe a C. But i think we will most likely see 1 maybe 2 new heads along the OL. Smith, Livings, Free are locks for 2013. Where i can see change coming in 2013 is RG and possibly C. I like what Costa showed in his very limited time. But if he cant even get on the field. Tough yr in terms of injury for the guy. But those looking for a drastic change along the OL save yourself the frustration and hope they can get settled as a unit.

    I see RG as a lock for change.

    I would sell my right arm for Ryan Clady. :) I'm sure he was a big reason Manning chose Denver. :laugh2:

    I'll bet you my life savings that Free isn't a Cowboy in 2013.

    The changes will be at RT and C.

    Free will have to restructure. And i think that would be easy to sell him. Basically because it will guarantee more of his money but spread out over yearly capwise.

    If he doesnt agree to this im sure he will be cut. But im positive he will.

    Okay, that's great for Free, but why is it beneficial for Dallas? The dude is handicapping the offense. He shouldn't be on the roster, restructuring or no restructuring, period IMO.

    Im not denying anything you have to say about him. But i just dont think Free will be cut in 2013.

    Do you think he deserves to be the starting right tackle?

    I think he deserves a chance to prove it next yr. Of course if he's willing to renegotiate. If Dallas would let Parnell play this yr and see what he has then id see things different.

    I'd like Andy Levitre in FA and a RT in the 1st round with Khaled Holmes in the 2nd or 3rd.

    Smith, Livings, Holmes, Levitre, Jake Mathews

    I'd take this.

    I don't understand how anyone could think that Free deserves anything. The Cowboys don't owe him anything, not speaking from a monetary standpoint.

    He's been getting paid like an elite tackle for a while now and he's been a complete failure.

    One of this organization's major flaws is that it holds on to certain players too long. Does Roy Williams, Anthony Henry, Marc Colombo, Ken Hamlin or Terence Newman ring a bell? Cut your losses and move on.
