Pro Bowl linebacker K.J. Wright is among the top remaining players on the NFL free agent market. He’s been a central figure with the Seattle Seahawks over the past 10 seasons. He’s also unlikely to return to the Pacific Northwest.
Could Wright be a fit with a Dallas Cowboys team that has done well to find value in the second wave of free agency? It looks like the two sides are open to a marriage.
“The two sides have been talking for the last few days, sources tell us. Specific dollars have not been discussed,” Mike Fisher of Sports Illustrated reported recently. “The number of years that the long-time Seattle Seahawks standout might want has been discussed.”
With this report as a backdrop, it actually makes perfect sense for both sides. The Cowboys have a major need at linebacker. Jaylon Smith struggled big time a season ago and was thought to be a potential salary cap casualty before a contract restructure.
