Cowboys to sign Steelers safety Will Allen once they clear up more cap space

Per Adam Schefter:

Schefter Will Allen

Allen joins former Lions LB Justin Durant as “Cowboys on deck.”

A couple weeks ago, I compiled the snap counts by game of the Steelers’ safeties after the Giants signed Ryan Mundy. One of my Giants readers, “TylerD” commented:

Jimmy, you realize you did all this research for a guy who is coming in to compete with Tyler Sash for the 4th safety spot right?

Welp… I got to use it twice now, so take THAT, Tyler. Anyway, here are those snap counts, via PFF:

While Schefter notes that Will Allen started 8 games last year, by the end of the season he was the 4th safety.

The Cowboys are expected to cut a player and restructure another player to make room for Allen and Durant. MOAR restructures!

    LOL Thanks for the shot out Jimmy!

  2. Juz Saying says:

    Steelr fans really like Will Allen I mean he played better than Nate Allen the “charmin tissue man”

    LOLBoys. The Cowboys are going the wrong direction.

    1. Bob says:

      Because we all know that spending boatloads in free agency is the way to build a perennial contender.

    2. Tim says:

      This is a special teams and backup safety signing. Don’t think it really has anything to do with the team’s future direction.

  4. Scott says:

    As an Eagles fan I’m loving this! Keep tying yourselves up in the future!

    1. Bob says:

      Oh no! They moved $400k of Kyle Orton’s money into the future! Financial meltdown is inevitable!

    Looks like Free may be taking a pay cut, you may have spoke too soon!

    1. A few Cowboys beat writers shot that down. Bummer.

        I just absolutely cannot fathom the Cowboys paying him $7 MM this season…

        1. Deer Antler Spray says:

          They’ll just restructure him and pay him 10 mil next season. That’s who they roll.

          1. "How" says:

            You mean “how,” you waste of space.

          2. YOU STUPID FUCK!!! says:

            Get your fist out of your own ASS!!
