There was a time, not so long ago, that Doug Free was thought to be a solid piece of the Cowboys offensive line puzzle. That's no longer the case as the beleaguered right tackle has all kinds of questions surrounding him. The Cowboys could cut him and it would be a wash against the salary-cap, or they could designate him a June 1st cut, that would save some money this year but count more against next year.

The other options are to bench him in favor of Jeremy Parnell, or they could try to kick him inside to guard. You have to give Free credit for not laying down last year once he was put into a rotation with Parnell. In fact, it could be said he played his best ball once that happened. But would the cowboys seriously consider moving him to guard? Stephen Jones says it's a possibility.

"I’d never rule out anything," Jones said on Monday. "We’re looking at it. We’re going to un-turn every stone to get better. But I wouldn’t rule him out of tackle either. He’s pretty versatile. He’s smart."

I can't say this idea really appeals. It sounds more like a desperation move to try and re-capture the mojo a player once showed. If Dallas thinks Free can't handle the right tackle spot, they're better served to go ahead and cut ties. The 2013 draft is full of promising offensive linemen, especially at guard.
