Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford has been one of the more reliable members of the Dallas Cowboys defense leading up to 2019. However, the 30-year-old defender only appeared in four games before undergoing season-ending hip surgery
Releasing Crawford would save Dallas $8 million, which could prove necessary. While the Cowboys are expected to have nearly $74 million in cap space, that money isn’t going to last. Key players like Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Robert Quinn and Byron Jones are scheduled to hit the open market.
Given his age, recent injury and salary, Crawford could be the odd man out in Dallas. However, he could still be a fine addition for a team seeking an interior lineman with pass-rushing potential (23 career sacks).
A reunion with former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, who recently joined the Raiders, would make a lot of sense.
