Dallas Cowboys’ star player can solve Broncos’ woes
The Denver Broncos should pay attention to a certain player from the Dallas Cowboys, as he could help solve a huge issue for the team. Every year, teams have to say goodbye to some star players due to contractual and cap space situations.
This year will be no different, and since the Broncos have little draft capital, they’ll likely be aggressive in free agency.
One way they can quickly improve their roster is to jump on some cap casualties that other teams may have, and one team, in particular, may have someone that the Broncos should keep an eye out for.
The Dallas Cowboys are in a bit of a tight situation this offseason. Spotrac.com indicates they are about $7.5 million over in cap space, so they may need to make some restructures and cuts to get under the salary cap number.
One player on the offensive line may be on his way out after a Hall of Fame career in Dallas, and that player is Tyron Smith who has played both tackle positions for the Dallas Cowboys.
The giant contract he signed with Dallas years ago is expiring soon, and the Cowboys could take advantage of a whopping $13.6 million in cap savings if they cut the veteran player, who has been one of the very best in the NFL at his position.
Smith could easily take over at left tackle if the team were to move on from Garett Bolles, or even if they wanted to put Smith at right tackle, I think he could be quite a boost to the offensive line.
The biggest issue with Tyron Smith is his injury history. He hasn’t played a full season since 2015 and has played in just 17 games since 2020.
It’s unfortunate that someone as talented as Smith has suffered this many injuries, and given that he’ll turn 33 late in 2023, he may decide to hang it up.
5 players Sean Payton could help steal from Broncos division rivals
Sean Payton appears poised to help the Denver Broncos be aggressive in pursuing upgrades to the roster in 2023. What players could be stolen from rivals?
However, if he wants to play more, why not the Broncos? Denver has issues all along their offensive line, and seeing what Smith has left in the tank could be a great idea and in all likelihood a very cheap but high-reward type of investment.
