I think the majority of people thought the Cowboys wouldn't pay to keep him. Much of that (I think) was based on the idea that they were going to move Connor Williams to RT. That narrative was boosted when they drafted McGovern in the 3rd round. It got another mini-boost when CW lined up at OT in at least 1 OTA practice. In the off-season they either need to draft an OT in the mid rounds or at least cross train CW to play OT. They don't really have a good option to play LT behind Tyron. Fleming is OK for a game or two but beyond that I think it would get ugly if he had to make multiple starts at LT. Fleming is probably better at RT but I don't see them ever moving La'ell to LT and using Fleming at RT if Tyron was out for multiple games. La'el did play LT in college but he just doesn't fit the mold of an NFL LT. McGovern should be a good player but it's too bad the OL that they had rated as a 2nd round talent wasn't an OT.
