News! Antwaun Woods has signed his ERFA tender, so he's officially back with the Cowboys. Lot of people have been wondering about that, including me. It's unusual to see an ERFA sit unsigned for so long, but he's back in the fold." / Twitter

Good news. I hope he comes in with the right attitude, to compete as hard as he can for a role on this team and not sulk because the team brought in two free agents.

People around the team at USC loved him when he was there, he should come in a good attitude and be a excellent backup.

Would not be surprised at all if he beat out Poe for pass rush downs.

I think the pass rusher rotating in would be Tyrone Crawford and possibly Trysten Hill, but I don't want to sidetrack the thread.

Another one of Jerry Dumbo GM Jones unreliable or unavailable defensive players on the cheap.

Another complicating factor this season for Antwaun is last December’s arrest for marijuana possession and other charges. While the NFL’s views on this matter are shifting, the arrest could still lead to a suspension to start the season. That could reduce his value to Dallas and any other teams.

It all adds up to legitimate sources of frustration for Antwaun Woods, and there have been signs recently that it’s been getting to him.

Dallas Cowboys DT Antwaun Woods
Just recently, Woods shut down his Twitter account after being one of the more active and engaging Cowboys players on the app. This came after a few months of various tweets which indicated his displeasure with where he stood on the team and/or in the eyes of the league.

While the account’s deletion prevents me from sharing the exact messages now, I can relay some of the more memorable messages. In late March, after the Gerald McCoy signing, there was one about being “counted out” as a significant factor on the defense.

Just a few weeks ago during the draft, Antwaun tweeted about the politics of the draft process and how going undrafted (like he did) isn’t about how talented you are.

Back in October, after the Cowboys fined him for being late to a meeting, Woods took to Twitter to defend himself against negative fan reactions.

So when Antwaun closed his account it led to logical speculation about what’s going on with the player. Of course, it could just be a personal choice for any number of reasons. Or maybe his agent or another advisor recommended it.

It’s dangerous to read too much into that activity, but it’s not a reach to say Antwaun is probably frustrated by multiple factors over the last few months. Some are self-inflicted wounds like fine and the arrest, but the overall picture is one of a discontented player.
Unreliable and Unavailable but cheap...see Gregory, Irving, Smith, Lee, Vander Esch, etc.

Woods was a slam dunk pick up for his price.

This post is silly.

Also, Gregory, LVE, and Jaylon were not remotely cheap. The players you grouped together makes no sense.

Not bad. But I’d feel a lot better if we had Gregory or signed Clowney or Griffin.

Wait a minute...Gregory is very reliable and available......I'm betting you could guess what he is doing most times of the day(reliable) and that he would be available to do it at a moments notice.

Woods (6-1/318) being a starting 1Tech showed the last 2 years just how little regard the previous defensive staff had for the position. Hard-working and great attitude, but not an NFL-caliber starting DT.

He's ideal in what will be asked of him now.

Available 1Tech snaps should be something like Poe (6-3/346) 35%, Woods 25%, 2nd pass-rushing 3Tech (40%).

That 2nd pass rushing DT when you slide Tank or Crawford inside, could be McCoy (6-4/300), Gallimore (6-2/302), and even..gasp..Trysten Hill (6-3/308)

Preferably, I'd like another 330-plus pound roadblock to back up Poe, but I think Woods can give you quality snaps in a lesser role. D Lines are about rotations.
