    There are tons of former players that keep in great shape but lost the step needed to compete in the NFL.

    Well let's let this guy get on field and we'll see if he's ready then. I fail to see the downside in this deal. It's not like we locked him in for 5 years. Even if he isn't pro-bowl level, as long as he's better than what we have right now, that's something positive to take away.

    True. Glad we took a chance on this one though.

    It's absolutely rediculous we didn't draft or sign someone earlier but this may just get us by and even do a little more.

    I just heard 65 on the radio but who cares, its a number.

    If the guy has anything left then he'll help this team. I guess they have officially given up on trying to develop Bernadeau into a starter. Oh well....

    I am very happy and excited about this signing. I think this really does wonders for the O-Line, and I expect Free to play really well this season for two reason, Waters should be right next to him, and he is coming up on a contract year.

    Very excited, looks like he was one of our best options. Age and a year off are real considerations , but it seems like he is well incented to perform. Got to believe that a year without pay also changes one's perspective especially when the alternative occupations are considered.

    I believe the Cowboys have the option to extend Free's re-negotiated deal for another year.

    I hope not. Just like Spencer, there is a reason they are going to play well. Let them play well for that new contract, then let them walk. It seems they lose motivation with that new deal.

    Thank you. Some people don't understand what football shape even is. They are too busy telling other people that they don't know what they are talking about. Waters is going to be a "wait and see" player at this point in his career. I'm happy we got him for depth at a minimum and hope for a lot more but we have to wait and see what we have.

    And some people don't understand that football shape for a guard is radically different than for a skill player.

    i think there are questions as to will he be able to return to form with so much time off at his age. thats understandable. but at 80% of what he was, he is 50% better than what we had. great move

    Gosh one time that I agree with you. Getting into football shape is different and if they try and rush him to much you start running risk of injury and right now we don't need a vet guard pulling a groin or hammy while trying to get into game ready condition. If it takes a week , 2 or even 3 week then so be it.

    Why should I be exited? Because now we can trade Costa or Arkin for a DT.

    If Free plays to an acceptable level that $3.5 mil option will be a deal.

    As it is you don't want to have to replace Free, Waters, Ratliff and Spencer all at the same time. That's putting way too much pressure on your draft.

    Yeah, "Radically" different for a 36 year old guard. You are right.

    And it's not like Bern can't come in for some snaps.
