    He sucked here last year. Glad he's gone. Good riddance.

    We have to get a another LB if not two in this draft. LVE and Cox coming off an ACL is not a plan.

    Right! Premium defender? I don't think so.

    Agreed. That's why I have said Cowboys should target Penn State LB Brandon Smith in the 2nd round, even if they have to add one of their four 5th rounders to move up earlier in the 2nd round to make sure and get him. It's that important.

    Then add another LB either in the 4th or 5th.

    • Also starting with the 2020 CBA, under App. V, §11, teams may exclude UFAs from the compensatory formula if the player signs a 1 year contract for less than approximately $1.75 million.

    But it also means they don't get a comp pick if he leaves next year:

    • Starting with the 2020 CBA, under App. V, §10, players who sign Veteran Salary Benefit contracts will not be eligible to become CFAs.

    Neal was a JAG in Dallas. He became a “premium defender” when he signed elsewhere.

    So I'd assume he'll be a SS there?
    Wasn't he saying he wanted to go back to safety?

    Did Brady approve or is he going to retire again?

    I love the headline I just saw: "Buccaneers Sign Former Cowboys Defensive Standout".

    Did they watch a single Cowboys game last year? Over half the Tampa Bay media probably didn't even know he was a Cowboy last year.

    Wow I wouldn't trust this dude at safety.

    WLB fine...and thats a maybe, but his closing speed is really sub par at this point.

    Can't even say he was in the wrong scheme here.

    Then again he probably wasn't bad enough to be done in the league and probably worth the risk for Tampa.

    Whatever. Not a needle mover.

    Probably true, but not related to this roster move.

    He looked slow and soft last year. That was next to Kearse in comparison but still he was not making plays out there.

    That's a hell of a catch if ruled complete. Irvin would've stood up, looked Neal in the eyes and did his Kung ** 1st down signal. Cowboys fans would've gone wild too. Lol
