For weeks on CowboysCast, host Bobby Belt has been asking CowboysHQ’s Mike Fisher if Jack Crawford would be back with a star on his helmet. Fish has said that both sides wanted to make something happen. That want-to came to fruition this week as Crawford re-signed on a 1 year, $1.1 Million deal.
It's all here! We at CowboysHQ.com are excited to announce our partnership with Cowboys Sports Radio, which is a podcast and radio app with the best podcasts about the Cowboys. Today they’re launching their free iOS and Android apps:
Bobby welcomes Crawford on this week’s CowboysCast to talk about his return to Big D.
“I always had it in my mind that I wanted to come back,” Crawford says. “I felt like this was the best situation for me.”
As for his role in 2016, Crawford isn’t too concerned with that starter label.
“I have no issue whatsoever not being a starter. I couldn’t care less,” Crawford insists. “I know in our system, we play hard and we rotate. There’s no question in my mind that I’m going to get my opportunity to go out there and battle with the rest of the team.”
Bobby also speaks with CowboysHQ’s Mike Fisher this week about a number of issues, including the perception of some that certain players are rising and falling in the front office’s eyes.
“The Cowboys don’t think anything today different about Paxton Lynch, Carson Wentz, and Jared Goff, than they thought a month ago,” Fish explains. “(Media) are always writing and saying ‘Joe’s sky-rocketing up the board,’ or ‘Joe’s slipping on the board;’ No they’re not. Not to scouts. They’re sky-rocketing up the board to the media.”
And while we all wonder who the Cowboys might be targeting with their No. 4 pick, CBS Sports and NFLDraftScout Senior Draft Analyst Dane Brugler is out with his yearly draft guide that can help you understand the crop of talent a bit better.
Dane joins Bobby this week, and similar to Dan Hatman last week (Dan, Fish and Utah star RB Devontae Booker in this podcast), Dane thinks Cowboys fans need to be singing a different tune about Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa.
“I really don’t understand why people dislike him,” Dane says. “He might not be a Von Miller in terms of his ability to bend the edge and disrupt the quarterback, but that’s not his strength. That’s not what he does best. But he does other things extremely well, everything from the way he uses his hands, to his technique, to his power.”
