Cowboys' Burnett hasn't made it to Green Bay

Cowboys unrestricted free-agent linebacker Kevin Burnett has talked to the Texans, Raiders and Chargers, but nothing close to an offer has materialized. Burnett's agent had indicated that a trip to Green Bay might occur, but that hasn't panned out.

The Cowboys might be making a mistake by letting a talented player like Burnett walk, but at least for the time being, there's not much of a market for him. He'd be wise to sign a one-year deal like the one safety Sean Jones agreed to with the Eagles. If he starts and plays well, a team would probably try to lock him down in a long-term deal. If he plays a reserve role, he can take his chances again in free agency -- in what could be an uncapped year.
