Its a cheap one year deal that is a great sign. We are talking about a 36 year old that doesnt have alot of mileage on his body having never started. But when hes filled in he has been reliable. The Cowboys plugged a hole of need and with the reps players like Steele and Knight got last season we are in good shape. He's a definite upgrade on Fleming. He probably took a discounted deal to retire a Cowboy being from Texas.

The OL decline continues....

How many good 35 year olds are in the league right now?
Don't know, doesn't matter.

You're trying to push this narrative that Nsekhe is a bad swing tackle because he's old, and it's totally baseless.

Age or not. The positive is we likely never have to see Terrence “I’m definitely not made of” Steele get owned again

No I'm not. Never once said he was bad. The narrative I'm pushing is a 35 year old tackle isn't a big need of this team.

Neither is 22 yo tackle.

Swing tackle was the need, they got a swing tackle. Age is irrelevant for a 1-year deal.

Its a good deal. Reasonably cheap insurance; and this guy is solid. Championship teams make deals like this. Which of course is strange since for once its the Boys that are doing it.
Actually gives me a little hope that our VERY OLD DOG is maybe learning something...

And this is why this team signed Dontari Poe and Everson Griffen last year and were confused why they weren't as good as they use to be....yeah that's what happens when you sign guys on the other side of 30.....

Well that's this teams first mistake. They need to worry about getting into the playoffs and being a solid team first . Making movies like they are a championship team is why they get caught with their pants down looking stupid.

Poe was bad, Griffen was just used wrong but was still productive when in the proper role. Nsekhe is still good.

None of any of that has anything to do with their age. I mean...I don't think Poe was even 30 yet when they signed him.
