The Dallas Cowboys have spoken to former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan about calling the plays for Tony Romo and the offense. Linehan was recently let go with the rest of the Lions staff when Jon Schwartz was fired.

The Cowboys currently have Bill Callahan as the play caller and the offense didn’t seem to be the main issue from last season. The defense seemed to be the biggest issue from last season. They just were unable to stop anyone.
If Linehan were to call the plays for the Cowboys, he will have another top tier wide receiver to work with. Imagine working with Calvin Johnson and then getting a new job and getting Dez Bryant to work with. It will be interesting to see what the Cowboys decide to do. If they don’t bring in Linehan to call the plays, what will Bill Callahan be thinking? If Linehan is fired, what does Bill Callahan do? Fired? Wasn’t the biggest issue with the Lions their inability to reach their full potential on offense?
