Kellen Moore might earn another head coaching job this offseason and if he does, these three Dallas Cowboys free agents could follow him
One of the drawbacks to having success is the fact that bad teams will try and poach players and coaches from your squad. The Dallas Cowboys are finding that out this season as a season that resulted in an NFC East title has led to teams wanting to interview each of their coordinators.
Up first is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who tried to bring in both Kellen Moore — the Dallas offensive coordinator — and Dan Quinn ‚— their defensive coordinator. Quinn politely declined (well, that’s an assumption that he was polite) but Moore is set to interview with the Jags before the playoffs.
Whether he decides to bolt for Florida, or perhaps another team that comes up in the offseason, Moore would be likely to try and bring a few familiar faces with him. Here we identify three free agents he could have join him on his new team.
3. Connor Williams, Guard
A second-round pick in 2018, Connor Williams was a stand-out offensive tackle at Texas. He shifted inside to left guard for Dallas and has played in 56 games with 50 career starts.
Not all has been perfect for Williams, who has struggled at times with consistency. Just this season, he found himself being benched in favor of Connor McGovern for three games. He’s been back in the starting lineup since Week 14 and seems to be holding up fine.
Even so, it would be a surprise at this point to see the Cowboys re-sign him. But that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be willing to re-join Kellen Moore on a new team.
Williams might not be a Pro Bowler, but he’s a serviceable starter and with chances high that Moore will be on a team that needs to rebuild, serviceable might be an upgrade.
