The Dallas Cowboys spent last offseason signing linebacker Justin Durant, but the former Hampton talent struggled during his freshman season in Dallas – both on the field and with injuries.
Now it’s possible Durant could receive his walking papers, especially if the Cowboys are able to pluck fellow linebacker Wesley Woodyard out of the free agent pool.
According to ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys have interest in the former Denver Broncos talent.
On the eve of the start of free agency, the Cowboys have expressed some interest in Denver weakside linebacker Wesley Woodyard.
Woodyard compiled 84 tackles, three forced fumbles and four pass breakups in 2013. In the past two seasons, Woodyard has 10 pass breakups and four interceptions.
The Cowboys don’t exactly have absurd amounts of available cap space but Woodyard’s price tag won’t be astronomical either, especially after getting benched at the end of last season.
The free agent has the ability to play all three linebacker positions and has proven himself to be a solid asset on special teams in the past.
