Would not do that.

If you watched Wilber's tape in the 4-3. He was pretty dominant. Especially in one the games where he was absolutely breathing down Baylor and RG3.

By Wilber's play in the 4-3 I would have seen him as a 2nd round pick. His production took a dive after the switch to the 3-4 at Wake Forest.

This is his first year of playing after taking a red-shirt year in the 4-3 defence. After this year they switched over to the 3-4:

This vid is against Baylor and RG3.

I'm confused. Would Sims and Durant compete for the SLB spot at all or does Durant have the spot outright. I thought Sims was resigned because of his experience in 4-3.


Sims is a WOLB, or Will. He is not physically suited to the SOLB, or Sam. His small stature would make it hard for him to shed blocks and hold the point of attack against the run. Sims will likely be backing up Carter.

The Sam competition will likely be between Durant, Albright and Wilber.


And we all know we need depth behind Carter, so Sims is a great piece of depth. Durant at SOLB is a perfect stop gap. FA has helped the depth issue at LB a ton which is good. Cb is pretty solid 1-4 as well. Means we have to focus on safety and the trenches finally.

In this draft, I would love an additional mid round pick. 4th would be ideal


Wasn't Wilbur a 4th round pick? Highly doubt that you would get equal value for him a year after he was drafted. Especially if teams think you are trying to get rid of him.

@espn_macmahon: Per @PFF, Cowboys commit Justin Durant ranked No. 18 among 4-3 OLB last year. 8th vs. run, 37th in coverage. Won't be on field in nickel.

As a lions fan I would have liked to see him stay, though I think I'm somewhat in the minority in that since he doesn't make practically any splash plays, but he's solid and I like him as a person too.

He's had slight health issues but I think that's mostly behind him

From what i'm hearing in Dallas they are closer on a long term deam with Spencer than Romo. As Romo is looking for $18 million a year, and not willing to give a hometown discount since this is his last contract.


It's probably more like Romo is not willing to give a hometown discount because he had the ish beat out of him the past 3 years. He's charging an extra million for every year his life has been reduced by awful OL play.

Well let's hope that what you heard isn't true. If it is, I hope the Cowboys don't cave to those demands

I would pay Romo whatever he wants. He is the best Qb option we have for the foreseeable future.

You just scared the bejesus out of me. Make him a reasonable offer. If they refuse(Romo and agent), look to trade him. If he thinks his many mistakes in big games warrants him Flacco type money...good riddance.

@nickeatman: Cowboys have officially signed LB Justin Durant to 2-year deal. To get under the cap, the club re-negotiated the contract of QB Kyle Orton

I have no problem with this restructure. Orton is a good backup. Keeping him and signing a free agent is a win-win.

Todd Archer ‏@toddarcherCowboys free up $383k on Kyle Orton restructure. Gives them enough to sign Justin Durant officially. Still working on Will Allen

I'm starting to like the thought about keeping Wilber more and more. He should be a decent backup for Ware on the LEO spot, and a guy who can backup the SOLB spot if needed. We don't need anything special to backup Ware since he's always on the field, so we might as well keep him and see what he can do.

- With that said, I would trade him away in a heartbeat for a mid 4th since this is simply just a deep draft. But, we won't get offered a 4th.
