Earlier this week, former Steelers safety Will Allen visited with the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys, who have little cap space, are to sign Will Allen, reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Allen started six games last season with the Steelers when safety Troy Polamalu was down with injuries. Allen filled in much better than Ryan Mundy who signed when free agency opened up with the Giants.
Leaving the Steelers with Robert Golden, Damon Cromartie-Smith, and Ross Ventrone to back up both Polamalu and free safety, Ryan Clark. With little experience and talent in depth at safety, questions start to ask if the Steelers will find a safety in free agency. Or will they draft Kenny Vaccaro, who’s pro day coach Mike Tomlin just attended on Tuesday.
Now on to the Cowboys. The team can not sign Allen until they clear cap space. The same goes for former Lions’ linebacker, Justin Durant. Durant started 14 games for the Lions in 2012 and recorded 103 tackles. The team is expected to release one player to make room for the two players. Fullback Lawrence Vickers seems to be the guy that everyone is predicting to be released. We will report whatever moves the Cowboys make to sign the two free agents.
Is it fair that the Cowboys are saying they will be signing players that they do not have the cap space for yet? What’s your opinion?
