    Right On The Nose: The Cowboys Need Production From Josh Brent And Sean Lissemore

    Josh Brent is the "space eater" type of nose tackle that could give the Dallas Cowboys a different element on the defensive line.




    Jay Ratliff is one of the most interesting defensive lineman in the NFL. He came into the league as a seventh-round pick and had to fight his way onto the field. Ratliff earned his playing time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. He plays a physical position that doesn't receive much recognition from ESPN and the NFL Network, but the nose tackle is one of the most important players on the defense.

    Jerry Jones rewards hard work, and he acknowledged that Ratliff has been a big part of this team when he gave him a early contract extension just a few days before the team opened the 2011 season.

    Did the Cowboys make a mistake by giving a 30 year old player a five-year extension worth $40 million, including $18 million guaranteed? Ratliff will be 36 years old in 2017, so you have to wonder if this will become a contract that eventually hurts the franchise...

    Yeah, I think the Ratliff contract extension was a mistake.
