He notes both players had offseason surgery, Poe on his quadriceps and Crawford on both hips, so this should just be temporary until they can pass a physical.
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 and he landed in Dallas on a two-year, $10.5 million deal.
In 2019, Poe appeared in 11 games for the Panthers and recorded 22 tackles and four sacks. Poe was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 32 interior defender out of 113 qualifying players.
Crawford, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2012. He’s entering the final year of his six-year, $45.675 million contract that included $17.425 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $8 million in 2020.
In 2019, Crawford appeared in four games for the Cowboys and recorded three tackles and a sack before going on injured reserve.
