When the Cowboys front office gathers together Monday at Valley Ranch and tries to salvage something from this season, roster moves will be at the forefront of the discussions.
The team needs to do something at inside linebacker.
If that's the case, and there are strong indications it will be, the Cowboys might have to sign a linebacker. Alex Albright can play inside linebacker behind Dan Connor and Ernie Sims, but adding a veteran linebacker at that spot should be considered.
Anthony Armstrong worked out with the Cowboys earlier this week at wide receiver because of Kevin Ogletree's concussion. Now with Miles Austin having a strained hip, suffered in the Redskins game, it increases the chances Armstrong might get signed.
Cornerback Orlando Scandrick underwent surgery Friday to repair a broken left hand. Do the Cowboys find another corner? Mike Jenkins is more than capable of playing slot corner if Scandrick misses any games, but you might need another defensive back for special teams or to play on certain passing downs.
Moore played college football at SMU.
In the last two seasons, the Cowboys pro personnel department has done a nice job of making in-season signings from the free agent market. Tony Fiammetta, Frank Walker, Charlie Peprah, Laurent Robinson and Sammy Morris made contributions to the team last season.
With five games remaining in the season, injuries have forced the Cowboys to juggle their roster again. It's life in the NFL, as coach Jason Garrett likes to say, but something has to happen now for this team to make a playoff push.
