I know it's a Jaylon thread, but let me hijack my own thread...still slightly on topic.

I have a GREAT feeling about the Cooper signing. I do not want to see it mean Leary is not resigned, but it does soften that blow if that is the case. But it will certainly bolster the future of the Cowboys offensive line dominance and depth.

Remember "mystery meat" from old Abner? Look where we are now!!

Certainly very hopeful based on what I've seen and heard about Jaylon. He could / would be that incredibly active and athletic Mike that we don't have. A playmaker and what I'm hopeful of as well is that he can be special in blitzing something we sorely lack.

Good season by Hitchens but he's not anything super special, but very serviceable. Would have liked to have seen Nzeocha to know a little of what he could be.

A few years ago I was high on Cooper, but I realize he's not a power guard but most effective maybe in a zone scheme, so he could be a nice back up. I wish they could keep Leary as I feel he's better than Collins, but he'll get good money somewhere else to be a starter and good for him. He was never disruptive while being benched and a favorite of Jerry for being so professional.

Anyone hear anymore on Leary's degenerative knee condition.

I agree, caddy, he is the better guard. He gives the whole line a completely different personality. I just wonder when that knee condition starts to show itself???

Leary's had that since he was in college and why he dropped out of the draft and wound up an undrafted rookie. Cowboys had a 3rd round grade on him and why Jerry was so excited when he was signed as an UFA rookie! The final night of the draft it was Leary that Jerry was talking about, that's how excited he was to get him. I've heard numerous discussions on it and his next play could always be his last, he's had nothing more than some flare ups over his 5 years with the team. One guy with the Eagles had the same thing and played 10+ years, so no way to tell. The teams given him days off just as a precaution.

Thanks for the info. From reports, it looks like he is mentally done here?

We'll have to hope Collins gets some consistency.
