The off-season is all about renovating a team to give them high chances and hopes in the following season.
A part of that renovation doesn’t just include the draft, but maybe there’s a veteran player that can take a team from bust to boom.

That’s where free agents come in. They know the game and spotlight, and all they need is a different jersey.


The Dallas Cowboys have some that can’t be magically filled thanks to a new rookie, so it might be best to look into a seasoned player to help them out.

These are some great players that could potentially give the Cowboys that playoff run boost they are looking for.


Justin Simmons

There won’t be too much bashing on the defense this time as it’s like beating a dead horse. However, the defense does need some help. With a new defensive coordinator, it’s taking a step in a good direction. An even better direction would be Justin Simmons.

Simmons isn’t necessarily a veteran only being drafted in 2016, but he definitely plays like one. He had an A+ PFF grade that included four interceptions and 11 pass breakups in 2019. Simmons has the ability to lend a great hand in the backfield as well as upfront. This wouldn’t be a bad pickup for Dallas.

At first thought, it sounds ridiculous, but this is a plan that could work. Sherman was pretty much cornerback number one on Dan Quinn’s “Legion of Boom” defense. He won’t be CB1 because, truthfully, Richard Sherman isn’t the same number one cornerback as he once was. However, he would do great as both a revolving character in the backfield and a mentor to Trevon Diggs.

If the right deal is made, meaning low and fair to both the Dallas front office and Sherman, this could be a win-win situation for the team.

Marcus Maye

Let’s say the Denver Broncos make a smart move and extend Justin Simmons to a lengthy contract.

No fret, no fear because Marcus Maye is here.

In all seriousness, Maye is talent. He plays it all at free safety, slot corner, and other multiple roles. And he is versatile to where he can play all corners of the defense. Pass breakups. Stopping the run. Maye has it and is on it.

With the New York Jets, he finished the regular season with the No. 4 overall grade among safeties at 82.8. With some players having the possibility of being shipped off, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to look into Maye.

Matt Feiler

This one is a little interesting because Feiler is an experienced veteran being both right tackle and left guard with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The place for him would potentially be inside at the left guard position.

Sharing snaps with or replacing Connor Williams could be beneficial to the once “Great Wall of Dallas”. And with Feiler being a low name, a big value type of player, the office could get a low deal from him.
