    This is nonsense. We're going to have a ton of cap space next season. Why would we add more dead money?

    His tackle production was roughly the same in 2013 as his career numbers reflect.

    He averaged 6.5 sacks per year the two previous years. Going 2+ games without a sack isn't necessarily out of line with those numbers.

    The Bear defensive scheme was a bit different under Mel Tucker than it had been under Lovie Smith and Rod Marinelli. They played a lot more man in coverage, and the DTs were shaded less.

    Do I think you build a DL around him? No. He's a solid player with decent to good production on pass rush downs, but he is not a guy who you need to account for on a down in, down out basis.

    Anyone know who this incarcerated bob guy is on Twitter? He sounds like a joke.

    @incarceratedbob: **BREAKING NFL NEWS**Source: Henry Melton n Dallas Cowboys expected to complete deal (Contingent on passing physical) http://t.co/IPEeg63m4u

    Everyone is telling him they don't meet till Monday but he's insulting them about cell phones. Weird.

    It's inaccurate. I read this on another message board.

    @incarceratedbob is not a reliable source at all.

    Minnesota just restructured Chad Greenway and two other players. They now have $18 million in cap soacspace. I wonder if that is to make another run at Melton

    Who is Incarcerated Bob?

    He got his name and his first bit of fame as a regular caller on the Boomer and Carton radio show, on WFAN 660 in New York. He received his nickname by the show’s host due to a prison stint he earned by getting into an altercation with a Patriots fan during the 2008 Super Bowl. Since his return and higher profile, Incarcerated Bob has made his name and living doing 2 things: picking winners and breaking stories.

    He's tweeted about many signings this year way before many of the so called insiders.

    But someone has to be giving him the info. From the Cowboys or from Melton's side. Doubt Cowboys leak anything.

    Incarcerate Bob is a hack. He is making a guess. He gets new followers either way.

    He tweets tons of stuff.

    Some right, some wrong.

    I don't doubt he has a stream of info from some place but often times he reports stuff that turns out to be false.

    Just guessing but I would wager he takes a tweet regarding a visit and tries to jump out in front by reporting a deal. Sometimes it works, other times it does not.

    It's like just throwing out a contract agreement for Ware and Denver 1 hour after it's reported he's there. Would have been "correct" in the end and could have thumped your chest.

    That's the thing about sources and all media. They can pimp them when they work and unload the blame onto them when they don't. And they can just claim everything is so volatile that things are subject to change at any second.

    It's a win-win. Always take the first to know credit, never take the blame for being out of the fold.

    I think if Dallas gets Melton, then Chicago at #14 may surely take him. 89 plays behind the LOS in 3 years...very quick (4.65), strong guy Donald is...

    This kid has a legit 500 bench and can box squat 600.......Bill Fralic holds all of the strength records at their highschool.....Fralic has said Donald will enter the NFL as one of the strongest players to put on pads...

    Donald is about team not ego.....he is a 3 tech but Pitt put him everywhere on the line. This diminished his numbers....if u think they looked great they would have even been more shocking/drawdropping.

    He does not get caught in hand play.....he proved as much in the senior bowl.....if he plays the 3 under tackle he will be an all pro after this season.....yes he is that good......

    What I'm reading about Donald is all good. Selfless player that Pitt moved around a lot on the defensive line, not just 3T, which makes one wonder...Very strong, very quick...what Marinelli could do with this kid seems only limited by the sky. The more I read about him, the less I am inclined toward signing Melton, but will he be there after the Giants at #12 or Chicago at #14? Ugh...you have to hate this if you are a Cowboy fan. It seems likely that Chicago would take him if we sign Melton, but if we don't???

    They were tweeting a few things about Melton in Seattle that came to nothing. I will believe it with an official team announcement or more verifiable sources.
