Cole adds that there’s still a chance Crawford could return to Dallas next year.
Crawford, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Raiders back in 2012. He lasted just over two years in Oakland before he was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later signed by the Cowboys.
Dallas elected to bring Crawford back on a one-year contract last year.
In 2016, Crawford appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 25 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 106 edge defender out of 109 qualifying players.
