The Cowboys need players to make it through PRE-SEASON.
Earl Thomas if signed knows this defense better than anyone here other than Richard so wouldn't have taken a pre-season snap anyway.
George Iloka was released because his team wouldn't pay him 5M to back up Jessie Bates, by same token Dallas isn't paying him 5M to come here and back up Jeff Heath and be our 3rd Safety.
Iloka just isn’t going to happen.
They signed Sanders and now Johnson.
They go into the year with Heath, Woods, Frazier and now Johnson/Sanders.
Iloka has other suitors with the Raiders and possibly Chargers.
I don’t mind these signings. Just pray, neither one is asked to do much other than ST against Carolina.
Take this positive spin.
Woods' hamstring isn't as bad as people think, they are confident it won't be a nagging thing and he'll be ready by Week 1.
If it was worse, they'd be more desperate for a safety that can play. Because Jeron Jonson is barely a backup.
