Due to the team’s limited salary cap space, the Dallas Cowboys have been watching free agency without making any big signings. They have been able to bring in a few mid-tier players, but they haven’t been chasing any of the more expensive players.
Now that the market has died down, the Cowboys may be interested in buying low and taking a risk on former Pro Bowl guard Davin Joseph.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys brought Joseph in for a visit recently.
Joseph is a long way from the player he was when he received two Pro Bowl nods, after struggling to perform in 2013 after missing the previous season due to a knee injury.
While Joseph is not the impressive offensive lineman that he once was, he could provide some solid depth for the Cowboys in the trenches and potentially challenge Mackenzy Bernadeau and Ronald Leary for one of the two starting spots. At the very least, the opportunity in Dallas would give him a chance to show he still has some tread left on the tires.
The Cowboys also met with former Cardinals wide receiver LaRon Byrd.
