  • Marion Barber was detained by police at a Beverly Hills hotel this morning for “disturbing the peace.”  He was not arrested and agreed to check out of the hotel.

There’s really not much to add here.  This incident alone won’t get Barber booted from the team, but that should really happen anyway.

This seems to be speculation more than anything, which isn’t new for ESPN.  They claim Davis had a horrendous 2010 season, but that actually wasn’t the case (they also say the ‘Boys averaged only 2.0 yards-per-carry behind Davis when the real number was 3.86).  I provided Davis with a “B-” overall grade.

This was news to me.  James has started all 16 games for seven straight seasons, which is remarkable.  I gave him the 16th-highest grade of any Cowboy in 2010.

There were rumors of Atogwe to Dallas last offseason, but nothing came of it.  I’d still prefer Michael Huff or Eric Weddle, but Atogwe would certainly be an upgrade over Alan Ball.  Either way, I think free safety should be the No. 1 priority in free agency because of the lack of stud safeties in this draft class.

It’s possible the Cowboys are posturing as to not give away their intentions for the draft, but if not, I don’t like this move at all.  Why pass up a player like Baylor nose tackle Phil Taylor if he would drop to the second-round simply because you want to keep Ratliff inside?

  1. Tyrone Jenkins says:

    Atogwe and Tyson Clabo (OT – Atlanta) are musts this off-season as long as neither is franchised. Weddle is good but projects to be an RFA under whatever CBA is announced. Huff seems like a good choice but also might be a RFA and isn’t really a centerfielder type FS. Atogwe is the better of the 3 IMO (but that mean’s he’ll cost more). Essentially, he should cost about as much as MBIII will cost this year.

    Clabo is the RT we need.
