We have been growing quite rapidly lately due to your interest and support. In order to provide you with the highest quality content possible, we have decided to alter the layout of the site. Yes, you will see some ads on this site. Legally, we are not allowed to ask you to click on them. . .so we won’t. :)
The revenue generated by ads will allow us to pay for site maintenance, trips to training camp, and so on. Ultimately, it is your interest and support in the site which keeps it running.
Most importantly, we think you will find the new Dallas Cowboys Times easier to navigate. Take some time to get acquainted with the site but keep your eyes open in the future, as there will be more changes coming. We will do our best to update you on any and all future alterations.
While we anticipate you will enjoy the new layout, please note that we have yet to work out all of the kinks (far from it). We will be uploading a suggestion tab (in the categories above) to allow you to provide us with recommendations and feedback. Thank you for your understanding while we iron out all of the bugs.
Also note that we are doing our best to get the site running while also updating you on Cowboys news. It has been a busy day for both us and the Cowboys!
Cory Procter is a perfect example of the importance of versatility in the NFL.
Good news for the band Free Reign, bad news for Dallas fans everywhere: Cory Procter will remain in Dallas in 2010. Procter signed his free agent tender (a second round tender), meaning he will make $1.809 million this season.
Might this affect the Cowboys’ draft strategy? It is widely believed the team is interested in Idaho guard Mike Iupati. We believe Florida guard/center Maurkice Pouncey would be a better fit, and he even won our Cowboys Draft Pick Tournament.
Nonetheless, if the Cowboys plan to retain Procter in 2010, they may look to secure an impact player at a position other than in the interior line. Procter’s versatility to play both guard and center is undoubtedly what has kept him in Dallas. Now, the team may believe they are free to concentrate more heavily on upgrading the offensive tackle position.
With the top-tier tackles projected to be gone by the Cowboys’ 27th selection, though, Dallas may have their eyes set on another position in the first round–perhaps free safety. That would make UMass guard/tackle Vladimir Ducasse a very interesting prospect for the Cowboys in the second round.
