Everybody is talking about the possibility of resigning Spencer & Hatcher, and there has even been talk about Henry Melton possibly reuniting with Rod Marinelli. However, no one has mentioned that Jared Allen, a Dallas native, is going to become a free agent the Cowboys should have some interest in.
No one is certain how much he'll demand on the open market since he'll be 32 when the season starts just like Hatcher, and even though he has had a way better career than Hatcher, most teams will probably try to stay younger as the Seahawks proved that can be quite effective.
There is one thing that's certain though; Jared Allen is a beast that can still play like one of the best defensive ends in the league! With him being a Dallas native and reaching the end of his career still without a ring, could Jared Allen be a serious possibility for the Cowboys?
Lots of players have taken discounts to get rings. Just look at the Patriots. This has the chance to be a similar situation, and it's made more realistic by the fact that it happens to be Allen's hometown as well.
Do you think the Cowboys can pull this off?
Wouldn't it be amazing if the Cowboys could bring in Allen to play opposite of Ware and then hopefully snag Aaron Donald, Dominique Easley, or another top defensive tackle in the draft?
That would be a huge improvement to the defensive line.
