Earlier this offseason, executive vice president Stephen Jones said of Free's possible return: "I wouldn't rule Doug out."
Free's status could again become tenuous if the Cowboys believe there's a tackle worthy of selecting in the first two rounds of the draft. If that's the case, Free could be sent packing, and Jermey Parnell or the draft pick would become the starter at right tackle.
Tackle Doug Free is scheduled to count $10.02 million against the Cowboys' salary cap.
