Cowboys Considering DTs Ndamukong Suh, Dontari Poe, Damon Harrison & Mike Pennel


According to Jane Slater of NFL Media, the Cowboys are continuing to look at potential defensive line upgrades in the free agent market. 

Slater reports that Dallas is doing homework on a number of notable free agents including Dontari Poe, Ndamukong Suh, Damon Harrison and Mike Pennel and looking to add more size for their new defensive scheme. 

Ian Rapoport says that Dallas is in talks with Poe and it’s possible a deal could be in place by the end of the deal. However, nothing is done at this time. 

The Cowboys signed Gerald McCoy to a contract last week, but it sounds like there could be at least one more move made at the position. 

Suh, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2010. He spent five years in Detroit before signing a six-year, $114 million contract that included $60 million guaranteed with the Dolphins a few years ago.

The Dolphins designated Suh as a post-June 1 release last year and he would go on to sign a one-year, $14 million contract with the Rams. He signed a one-year, $9.25 million contract with the Buccaneers last year. 

In 2019, Suh appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 41 tackles, 2.5 sacks, four fumble recoveries, two defensive touchdowns and four passes defended. 

Poe, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2012. He played out his four-year, $11,320,006 contract when the Chiefs picked up his fifth-year option worth $6.15 million for the 2016 season.

Poe elected to sign a one-year, prove-it contract with the Falcons in 2017. He signed a three-year, $27 million deal with the Panthers in 2018 but Carolina declined his option a few weeks ago. 

In 2019, Poe appeared in 11 games for the Panthers and recorded 22 tackles and four sacks. Poe is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 32 interior defender out of 113 qualifying players.

Harrison, 31, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent out of William Penn back in 2012. He spent four years with the Jets before departing in free agency for a five-year, $46.25 million contract with the Giants.

The Giants later traded Harrison to the Lions. He was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $46.25 million deal when he agreed to a one-year, $11 million extension last year. 

Detroit released him in February. 

In 2019, Harrison appeared in 15 games for the Lions and recorded 48 tackles, two sacks and three pass defenses.
