Woodson, Arrington Headline Remaining FAs

TheRanchReport.com takes a closer look at the top remaining free agents.

Quarterback
Kerry Collins
Anthony Wright
Tommy Maddox
Jamie Martin
Jay Fiedler
Tony Banks

* The Cowboys would be interested in acquiring a younger back-up quarterback as an insurance policy. However, judging by the talent available in free agency, they may look towards the upcoming draft as opposed to free agency.

Running Back
Najeh Davenport
Anthony Thomas
Antowain Smith
Jonathan Wells
Sammy Morris
Maurice Morris
Lamar Gordon
Stephen Davis
Verron Haynes

* The Cowboys are set at running back with Julius Jones, Marion Barber III and Tyson Thompson.

Fullback
Mack Strong
Jerald Sowell
Daimon Shelton

* With just one true fullback on the roster (Lousake Polite) Sowell could be a target of Dallas before free agency is done.

Wide Receiver
Quincy Morgan
Peerless Price
Kevin Johnson
Troy Brown
Dez White
Az-Zahir Hakim
Randy Hymes

* The Cowboys have already tried their luck two of these wide outs in Peerless Price and Quincy Morgan. With T.O. now in the mix, this need is nowhere near as pressing as what it was a week ago. Outside of Owens, this continues to be a weak year for wide receivers in free agency and the upcoming draft.

Tight End
Chris Baker
Mark Campbell

* Dallas is done here after signing blocking specialist Ryan Hannam.

Kicker
Todd Peterson
Paul Edinger

* Dallas is also done here after signing Mike Vanderjagt to a three-year deal.

Punter
Jason Baker
Kyle Richardson
Tom Rouen
Tom Tupa
Sean Landeta

* Dallas will bring in an undrafted free agent to challenge Mat McBriar.

Guard
Tutan Reyes
Ron Stone
Stephen Neal
Kendyl Jacox
Victor Riley

* Dallas is likely done at guard after signing Kyle Kosier on the first day of free agency. However with Larry Allen now out of the mix, don't be surprised to see a guard taken in one of the early rounds of the upcoming draft. After all, Marco Rivera isn't getting any younger either.

Offensive Tackle
Damion McIntosh
Jon Runyan
Brad Hopkins
Orlando Brown
Mike Pearson
Kenyatta Walker
Matt Stinchcomb

* Dallas is likely done at tackle after signing Jason Fabini, but the draft will see the team get younger at the position.

Center
Jeff Mitchell
Trey Teague
Cory Raymer

* Again, the draft will see the Cowboys add a center.

Defensive Tackle
Brenston Buckner
Sam Adams
Jason Fisk
Ron Edwards
Grady Jackson
Lional Dalton
Ed Jasper

* After releasing La'Roi Glover, the Cowboys could move on a veteran tackle for the right price.

Defensive End
Lance Johnstone
Duane Clemons
Gary Walker (DT)

* Defensive end is another position that will likely be addressed in the draft.

Inside Linebacker
Ben Taylor
Rocky Calmus
Nick Griesen (WLB)
Earl Holmes
Sam Cowart
Chris Claiborne
Brad Kassell

* Dallas has had limited contact with Rocky Calmus, but no deal was ever offered.

Outside Linebacker
LaVar Arrington
Na'il Diggs
Jamie Sharper
Tommy Polley
Chad Brown
Jamie Winborn
Peter Boulware
Keith Newman
Barrett Green
Brandon Short
Junior Seau
Kevin Bentley
Warrick Holdman
Keith Adams

* The Cowboys have already signed Akin Ayodele, who could also play inside if needed. Dallas also added special teams ace Rocky Boiman as a second team player.

Cornerback
Charles Woodson
Ahmed Plummer
Eric Warfield
Duane Starks
Ty Law
Andre Dyson
Dexter McCleon
Reggie Howard

* The Cowboys are set here with two solid starters in Anthony Henry and Terence Newman, not to mention back-ups Aaron Glenn and Jacquez Reeves.

Safety
Idrees Bashir
Marcus Coleman
Tebucky Jones
Brent Alexander
Lance Schulters
Keion Carpenter
Deke Cooper
Ronnie Heard

* Free safety remains one of the biggest team needs this off-season. While veteran Marcus Coleman could be a bargain, he's at the end of his career and was a problem for the Texans last year. The Cowboys will likely address this need in the first three rounds of the draft where players like Virginia Tech's Jimmy Williams, South Carolina's Ko Simpson and Nebraska's Daniel Bullocks will be available.
