The Cowboys made a solid investment in defensive tackle Cedric Thornton and he will play in defense. Thornton brings some good size and can effectively provide velocity to the team’s overall running. The team has given him the best chance to win a Super Bowl ring.
5. Re-signing Rolando McClain
The Dallas Cowboys have resigned linebacker Rolando McClain to a 1-year deal worth $5 million. Cowboys believe that their defense is in a good hand when Rolando McClain is playing in the team as middle linebacker.
