Jerry Jones Uncertain About Flozell Adams' Future in Dallas

This post will be short, but we wanted to address the news that owner Jerry Jones has been non-committal on left tackle Flozell Adams’ future with the team. Adams is due a $2.5 million roster bonus in June, meaning the Cowboys will decide on his fate by then. The team is fortunate to be in a position to decide on Adams’ future after the draft.

Jones reportedly believes Doug Free is ready to take over at left tackle. We couldn’t disagree more. Despite handing out a “C-” overall grade to Adams for the ’09 season, we believe he should stay in Dallas in 2010. Why?

  • There is no better option at left tackle as of now.
  • Releasing Adams would create problems with depth.
  • There is no financial reason to cut Adams, as 2010 is an uncapped season.
  • While speculative, Adams may be able to transition to guard.

The draft will undoubtedly be an enormous factor (and perhaps the sole factor) in the decision to release or retain Adams. Let’s hope Jerry makes the right choice.

    Looks like a LT in the draft is a lock. If JJ thinks Free is ready at LT, here we go again. He must know something or see something I have not. I hope he is just trying not to show urgency.
