The Dallas Cowboys may be looking for a veteran to replace offensive tackle Tyron Smith. According to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk, the Cowboys have been reaching out to the former Rams Pro Bowl offensive tackle.
“I mean, obviously, there’s been some things with the Cowboys and losing Tyron Smith. It’s just an awful deal. Such a great player, and a guy I’ve always loved watching play,” Whitworth said, via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk. “It’s been a busy day of answering calls. The problem is they’re calling and texting the wrong person. They need to be texting and calling Melissa Whitworth and the kids, because they have final approval on whether I’m ever going to play football again.”
Big Whit does not sound like he is against it, because he left that up to his kids and his wife. You know his wife wants him to play and the kids would probably want him to give it one more shot as well.
If the Cowboys could add Andrew it would be a great replacement for Smith until he returns, or if he returns. While Whitworth is 40 years old, he just won a Super Bowl. This would allow rookie Tyler Smith to learn from a very good player and watch him blossom.
