    It’s not him, per say.

    It’s that he is our only free agent acquisition that makes the team lol

    Nice. Everything I've read and seen about Covington says he's stout against the run/eating double teams. Nice running mate for Antwaun Woods. I'd play him and Woods together on early downs, personally.

    Winner,, some pieces do not have to cost 50 million.
    We will build like we always build..
    Sign our own
    Cheap out of the gate in FA.
    Grab what we can with remaining funds.
    and last but not least, always make sure we have a FB on this roster, because we utilize that position so much.

    I'm just glad common sense seems to have prevailed in the cowboys front office. I just hope they play him enough unlike when cedric Thornton was signed but Hardley played.i would still like to see them draft another dt

    It would still be great if they drafted a really good DT at 58.
    Draft pick-Woods
    Collins-Covington would make a really nice rotation. I like having two thick run stuffing fellas now. In fact, I would love to see Covington and Woods playing together on early downs.

    Poor scheme fit. Seems odd that Marinelli would have signed off on this move.

    We are all going to look back on the 2019 Free Agent class and see that McElroy and Covington were the missing pieces to Lombardi # 6

    Wondering if Richard had more to do with it than Marinelli. After the rams game he may have decided to add some beef on the inside. He is barely over 300 pounds anyways. Not a huge monster.

    Covington will play interior, much like when Hatcher moved to the interior when the Cowboys switched from 3-4 back to 4-3

    This move kinda reminds me of when we signed that Russian DT about 7+ years ago, Igor what’s his face. He wasn’t a game changer, just a solid rotational piece...

    It could be Richard.maybe the cowboys front office is finally put a emphasis on Drs who are good at defending the run instead of rushing the quarterback. I thought Covington only
    Weighed 300 but a article I read from Dallas morning news had him listed at 310.

    Right. Covington is a good pickup, im with you.

    Can play both 1T and 3T. So he can eat snaps at both positions.

    He’s a perfect Rod and Jason guy. Versatile and plays multiple positions
