We’ll be continuing our offseason target candidate series today with the offensive guard position. On Thursday, we discussed the wide receiver position.
Much of the success the Dallas Cowboys had in the playoff years of 2014 and 2016 came from the foundation of the offensive line. In 2016, the offensive line consisted of three All-Pro players in left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick, and right guard Zack Martin. The other two players on the line were Ronald Leary and Doug Free, two guys who weren’t too shabby themselves.
Dallas had a ton of success that year, going 13-3 until losing in heartbreaking fashion to the Green Bay Packers. Fast forward to the offseason, the Cowboys lost Leary to free agency and Free to retirement. In 2017, the offense failed for a variety of reasons, but the offensive line definitely took a step back.
