The Dallas Cowboys have a new coaching staff and that could lead to more talent coming to the team, such as these 3 players with ties to the staff
The Dallas Cowboys made a huge move this offseason that finally gives their fans hope that this next season could be better. That move was to finally move on from Jason Garrett as the head coach and go with Mike McCarthy, a former Super Bowl winner while with the Green Bay Packers.
For years we heard Garrett preach about trusting the process but there was never really any faith in him from the fan base. Everyone heard the same speech year in and year out and we all kept seeing the same sad gameplan and choking in the clutch.
McCarthy might not be the exciting name many wanted — see Lincoln Riley, Urban Meyer, etc. — but he does provide a winning background. And he’s also built some great relationships with his players throughout the years.
And some of those players are now about to hit the open market. Here we will look at three pending free agents who McCarthy and his staff — mainly defensive coordinator Mike Nolan — have previous ties to.
Honorable mention: Mike Daniels, DT
Mike Daniels had a season to forget for the Detroit Lions in 2019 but he still has enough talent to be a starter in the NFL, assuming he can stay healthy. Due to his issues with health, he could be an affordable signing to help as the team tries to see if they can develop Trysten Hill into a starter.
Before landing in Detroit, Daniels was with McCarthy in Green Bay for seven seasons. He started 72 of 102 games played during that span and could look to reunite with someone he knows as he tries to prove he deserves one more high-priced contract in 2021 — and we all know how much Stephen Jones loves signing players to those one-year ‘prove-it’ deals.
