    Report: Cowboys agree to terms with defensive end Kony Ealy on one-year deal

    The more pass rushers, the better for the Cowboys.

    The Dallas Cowboys have a sneaky line of solid depth when it comes to their defensive ends (especially if they can get anything out of Randy Gregory). That unit was bolstered a bit on Thursday when word broke that theyíve agreed to terms with Kony Ealy on a one-year deal.

    Well, he's a Cowboy now so I'll root for him to get his career going.

    Here is to hoping Marinelli has a little magic left. I mean he has gotten some decent production from scrub DEs in the past.

    He's 6-4, 275 with 34+ inch arms, and in his first 3 years in Carolina he had 4/5/5 sacks before bouncing around last year.

    He'll probably never reach his full potential but Marinelli can probably coax some plays out of him.

    I'm sure Marinelli could get 5 sacks out of him. He's some insurance for Taco I'm guessing.

    Could also be an eventual replacement for Crawford if he plays well this year. Crawford will turn 30 during the 2019 season and we'll save 6 million against the cap cutting him next offseason, and he is 100% going to be gone by the 2020 offseason.

    If Charlton takes a step forward and Ealy gives us decent production I wouldn't be surprised to see Crawford gone this time next year, and then Dak will be up for a contract going into the 2020 offseason at which point Crawford is almost a lock to be released.

    Heís insurance and will have every chance to get his career back on track.

    But it somethingís got to be off about him for the Pats to have flat out cut him.

    Cowboys agree to terms with former Jets DE Kony Ealy


    By Nick Shook
    Around The NFL Writer

    It took more than seven months, but Kony Ealy is about to become a Dallas Cowboy.

    The defensive end agreed to terms with the Cowboys on Thursday, the team announced.

    Ealy spent the 2017 season with the New York Jets, who claimed him off waivers after the New England Patriots cut him loose in late August. New England had acquired the former second-round pick from the Carolina Panthers in an offseason trade in 2017, but coach Bill Belichick told reporters upon Ealy's release the pairing just "didn't work out."

    Ealy recorded 14 tackles, one sack and one interception in his lone season with the Jets. Had New York not placed a claim on the edge rusher, he could have ended up in Dallas, which also placed a claim on him. Due to the waiver order at the time, the Jets were awarded Ealy.

    Free to determine his next destination, Ealy chose Dallas over a return to Todd Bowles' team. He'll instead join a unit that includes Demarcus Lawrence, Tyrone Crawford, David Irving and 2017 first-round pick Taco Charlton. What was once a serious need for the Cowboys has started to look more like a potential strength, should Charlton improve in year two and Ealy play more like his Carolina form than New York.
    Leading in defensive player suspensions, 5 years and counting
