Commentary after the jump…

– It’s very possible that 3 of the top 6 Cowboy defenders, in terms of total snaps, won’t be with the team next year.  One of those 3, Abram Elam, missed just 3 snaps all season.

– Keith Brooking and Bradie James split snaps for most of the year, an ended up just 5 snaps apart.  Both were brutal.

– Mike Jenkins only missed 4 games, but he only played 57.7% of the defensive snaps.

– Marcus Spears had 400 snaps in 2011.  Sean Lissemore had 284.  Next year, Rob Ryan, a little advice… More Lissy, less (or no) Spears.

– Jay Ratliff played on 71.2% of the snaps, which is a lot for a NT.

– 10 DB’s saw playing time.

– Much more on Anthony Spencer’s and Victor Butler’s snap counts here.
