The Dallas Cowboys didn’t make a big splash when it came to filling the void left after the departure of defensive end Robert Quinn in free agency. In 2019, the club traded a sixth-round pick for the former Rams and Dolphins star, and in turn got a team-leading 11.5 sacks as he crushed through some of the most double-teams of any edge rusher in the league. It earned the elder statesman a five-year, $70 million deal with the Chicago Bears and left a hole in Dallas’ defensive line.
Instead of going big at end, the Cowboys shored up the interior, inking Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe. On the edge, the team will rely on the return of Tyrone Crawford after an injury-plagued year and hope that the new CBA which removed failed marijuana testing from the suspension track will mean the reinstatement of Randy Gregory.
