On defense, Byron Jones has turned his career around at cornerback, and will be entering the final year of his deal.

Further down the roster, guys such as David Irving, Cole Beasley and Sean Lee are all veterans who are facing the possibility of playing for a new team in 2019. While Dallas would love to pay everyone of their free agent stars, they will need to be smart with working the numbers to preserve the depth of the team. Despite all the star power mentioned, defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is the crowned jewel of the Cowboys’ class of free agents]]> 5413010 Wed, 16 Jan 2019 17:03:01 EDT Cowboys Wire
<![CDATA[Rams' plan for Michael Thomas should be much different with Aqib Talib back]]> Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints, unsurprisingly, was one of them. His 12-catch, 211-yard performance came in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Rams in a winning effort by the Saints.

It was one of the single most dominant performances by a wide receiver this year, right there with Amari Cooper’s 217-yard, three-touchdown game and Tyreek Hill’s 215-yard, two-touchdown performance – which also came against the Rams]]> 5412992 Wed, 16 Jan 2019 16:27:01 EDT Rams Wire

With Cooper, Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib all spending three-plus years in the AFC West playing against each other, they had plenty of past history.

Cooper did the most talking leading up to the game, saying he knows Peters and Talib inside and out.

“Obviously I know their tendencies, but at the same time, they know mine,” Cooper said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think it definitely helps me. I played against those guys twice a year, both of them. I know them in and out, how they play. And I’m able to tell my teammates, my quarterback their tendencies.]]> 5410711 Sun, 13 Jan 2019 10:45:01 EDT Rams Wire

Then, Dallas’ offense went to work. A fourth-and-one run by Elliott just over midfield gave the Cowboys a new set of downs, and an unsportmanlike conduct penalty on L.A. corner Marcus Peters pushed them inside the 35.

Then, out of shotgun-11 with Amari Cooper in the slot, Dak Prescott fired a bullet across the middle after Cooper got maximum separation off the slot corner. Cooper’s wheels did the rest]]> 5410410 Sat, 12 Jan 2019 21:21:01 EDT Cowboys Wire
<![CDATA[Amari Cooper on Rams CBs: 'I know them in and out', but did he win?]]> Amari Cooper has, maybe single-handedly, turned this Dallas Cowboys season around. Sputtering at 3-4, the Cowboys made the now infamous move to acquire Amari Cooper in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. The Cowboys have gone 8-2 since the trade, and now storm into Los Angeles looking to advance to their first NFC championship game since 1995.

While the Cowboys have yet to face the Rams this season, Amari Cooper can provide some insight into attacking the Rams secondary. As a Raider, Cooper frequently faced both Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, who headline the Rams secondary. Talib and Peters played against Cooper with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs, respectively]]> 5410246 Sat, 12 Jan 2019 17:51:01 EDT Cowboys Wire
