Would the Cowboys consider bringing back Chris Canty? Would he be a good fit for Kiffin's defense?
Nick: I think at this point this defense needs to lean on the experience they’ve added with the coaching staff. If this scheme is supposed to work, then let it work and let it develop some players like
Bryan: When we talk about these players that are released, it’s not like a bunch of us out back trading football cards. There are situations that you have to think about when it comes to cap chargers and is there even enough money there to sign these players? Would Canty be a nice fit as a one technique? You bet but will Canty have options to make more money somewhere else? That’s a decision that he would have to make. Be personally, I draft someone younger, cheaper and potentially better at the position. In 2005 we found Canty out of the University of Virginia, and in the work I have done so far, there look like better Chris Canty’s in this draft. Try and work on that first before you go spend money.
Why is it that everyone is so scared of
Nick:I don’t really think it’s fair to say what a guy did in college and that he’ll be fine now. He did that when he was 20-22 years old. It’s different now. He actually looked like a 50-year-old at the very end last year because of how banged up he was. Now, I think Ware will be fine and play the 4-3 with relative ease. But I don’t think it’s because he played it well at Troy back in the 2004. I think it’s because he’s a smart,

Ware knows how to battle these tackles and tight ends, he does it every week. Also remember he will be playing on the weak side of the defense and will most likely have
