    To get this roster back to the point it was at season end this upcoming draft better be an all time best type thing for the Cowboys. Unless there are some true hidden gems still out there in FA or unless the team pulls off a few really nice trades.

    On the contrary, because Neal cannot cover the deep half of the field anymore as a coverage safety, and was obviously losing more and more range,
    his best plays came when he was closer to the line, thus the move to LB.

    How much you wanna bet the Bucs have him playing " hybrid" nickel mode instead of the traditional deep halve safety ?

    cant keep them all.

    good luck to him we kept the better of the Players then those that left IMO. Cox easily assumes his role with Kearse,LVE, and other plus a draft pick. Not sure he was all that important. we shall see.

    Y’all crack me up. The “who cares” attitude for Neal leaving, but if we signed a player of his current caliber we would be really happy. Neal is a 2nd tier guy, Not a bargain basement guy like the clowns we will end up with.

    You are defining a Strong Safety in a single-high coverage scheme...

    This is the Stephen way....throw enough darts at that hole and one may plug it. Struck gold in Kearse, but as they say a stopped clock is correct twice a day.

    If he does, good for him, but last year proved Tampa proved to be beatable so its far from assured.

    Not according to Vegas, they are just over a 2/1 difference.

    And he was not a difference maker. Though I felt it was a mistake to play him at LB. Maybe he will be better for them at S.

    You've never gotten it. Terrible draft decisions. I laugh at your emoji.

    Will somebody please lock the back door. I'd be in for a coaching purge, but we know what that would mean......KMoore HC.

    No Cox is taking his pace.. cant keep them all and next man up is player with even more upside..we kept hooker, Kearse, and LVE..you just cant and he want to be safety now umm we have Wilson, Kearse, and hooker plus young guys..again its nit that its n big deal we will easily fill his role.trust in DQ..he has plan for cox plus young guys form this hybrid role..

    how many actual % of snaps did Neal play ..i believe if cox didn't get hurt before the end of the year he would have taken Neals job..

    some might be undervaluing him but you are OVERR valuing him..just sayng.

    i find it ironic all the bargain basement FA dal fans hate and say doesn't work when you lose one of them its like we lost hof Player'

    think hard i mean how many of the FAs from last year worked out and yet here were are this offseason crying about the lack of FA movement and doesn't like the bargain basement guys but Neal was one of those ..we ended up keeping Kearse and Hooker

    There is nothing I said about wanting him to stay. Comprehension is a good thing my man. Had zero to do with what I was implying.

    He didn't get much of a contract, so apparently the league isn't that enamored with him. Realistically he was a part of the rotation, but not a key component. Can't just replace him with anyone, but not an irreplaceable guy either.

    It's pretty obvious they didn't want him back.

    I am glad they did not resign him.

    I can't recall one big play he made all year.

    Rarely heard his name called and seemed like he never made any tackles.

    I was sorely disappointed in his impact.

    Full disclosure: I was pretty dang excited about the signing last year, thought he'd have a role similar to what Kearse ended up having.
