With that we've got a list of potential targets for the Cowboys:
  • Brandon Carr, CB: Finished with four interceptions and 13 pass breakups for the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Cortland Finnegan, CB: Credited with five tackles for loss and 12 pass breakups for Tennessee.
  • Richard Marshall, CB: Started nine games for Arizona last season and finished with three picks.
  • Eric Wright, CB: Ended 2011 with four interceptions and 16 pass breakups for Detroit.
  • Evan Mathis, G: Started 15 of 16 games at left guard for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011.
  • Ben Grubbs, G: A 2011 Pro Bowler from the left guard spot for Baltimore.
  • Carl Nicks, G: The premier free-agent guard on the market. Might go back to New Orleans.
  • Trai Essex, G: A backup guard for Pittsburgh who can also play a little tackle.
  • Chris Myers, C: One of the best centers in the game. Houston covets him, though.
  • David Hawthorne, ILB: A nice fit in the Cowboys' scheme. Led Seattle in total tackles.
  • Dan Connor, ILB: Finished with 75 tackles and three tackles for loss with Carolina.
  • Shaun Hill, QB: Backed up Matthew Stafford in Detroit last season.
  • Kyle Orton, QB: Cowboys tried claiming him last season, but missed. Threw 10 TD and 11 INTs last year.
