    Garrett on Anthony Spencer: Grew up a 4-3 DE. Can make transition. " We are confident he can play either scheme."

    Garrett: Rob Ryan is an outstanding coach. Talking him up like nothing else.

    Garrett: Sean Lee will get first crack at MLB in new scheme.

    Garrett says he "absolutely" expects Ratliff to be on the cowboys in 2013

    Eye on Football ‏@EyeOnNFL
    Jason Garrett says he "absolutely" expects Jay Ratliff to be a part of the Cowboys next year.

    Garrett on Tony Romo: "We believe very strongly in Tony Romo as our QB." Says new deal necessary to free up more cap money

    Calvin Watkins ‏@calvinwatkins
    If cowboys keep ratliff, which is expected from what Garrett said, it's wrong on so many levels

    Coverage on NFLN didn't last very long, so I'm waiting for tweets to update the first post.

    With Ratliff on the cowboys, i dont expect DT to be as much a need as people think.

    I think they can afford to pick up one in the 3rd probably. Look at Jordan Hill

    Starting to think DL isn't going to be addressed in rd 1 either

    OL or S is my guess

    Vacarro could be the pick but i'd put more leverage on OL. Fluker or one of the Gs if they are there.

    The dark horse IMO is DE.

    I don't think Vaccaro will be there...but if he is, he's an option for sure.

    I'm not sure Fluker is an option. But I could be wrong. Just don't see us going RT for whatever reason

    Maybe somebody could inform Calvin that part or all of Ratliff's 2013 base salary is guaranteed.

    He's not talking about the money part. He's talking about the drinking part. The death of Brown part.

    Me i'd love it if Ratliff was released.

    Releasing Ratliff for a DUi is stupid. Get over it.

    I dont see why fluker wouldnt be a option. He plays a posistion of need for Dallas. The object is to keep Romo healthy. I dont think the team is comfortable with any of the Tackles they have. I think theres even some reserve on smith still.

    I think he reads the forum for ideas, maybe he'll see your post. :)

    I think it is BPA within reason.

    This is what Stephen Jones said in the paper today regarding the draft and Oline,
    " We're obviously looking at that with our eyes wide open. But when the draft comes, the worst thing in the world we want to do is be drafting for need. You draft good football players. And that's what we'll do".

    I hope that is what they do.

    BPA around this area could be

    Manti Te'o
    Jonathan Cooper
    DJ Fluker
    Ezekiel Ansah
    Jonathan Hankins
    Keenan Allen
    Alex Okafor
    Sylvester Williams

    If those were our choices, I'd be pretty happy. Right now I rank both Cooper and Fluker higher than the rest on that list.

    Watkins' sports reporting is wrong on so many levels.

    When he starts calling for every player who has a DUI to get fired, then I'll applaud him for his stand, but considering multiple-time offenders keep their jobs in this league, then it's wrong to single out Ratliff.

    Either call for the system to be fixed entirely or get off the high horse.

    Now, if he wants to argue that Ratliff is washed up, I can live with that. But I think we should see if he bounces back from this injury before deciding that.

    I think he means by playing years since Romo didn't get any playing time his first few years.
