Cowboys in talks with veteran offensive tackle

With the team’s glaring need to protect Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys are in talks with this veteran offensive lineman.


According to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys are in talks with offensive tackle Jared Veldheer. Last season, Veldheer played two games for the Green Bay Packers.


“As Cowboys work to address their offensive tackle situation, OT Jared Veldheer is in Frisco for a visit, source said,” tweeted Gehlken. “Veldheer has made 113 career starts. On Sunday, Dallas started undrafted rookie Terence Steele at RT. La’el Collins (hip), Cam Erving (knee) are both on IR.”


On Sunday, the Cowboys allowed three sacks to Aaron Donald and the Rams. It appears the Cowboys are not completely sold on undrafted rookie Terence Steele’s abilities right away.


The team could wait one more week to officially sign Veldheer. The Cowboys are bringing him in for a visit. If a deal were done, Veldheer would not play right away with Sunday’s matchup against the Atlanta Falcons just days away.


Eventually, the Cowboys will get La’el Collins back on the field. The team placed him on the IR, but due to the newly updated COVID-19 rules, Collins only has to stay on the IR for three weeks minimum.

The next few weeks for the offense will be challenging, but the team will need better play from Steele. If not, we could see Prescott getting rid of the ball a lot quicker than normal.


The Cowboys will look to get to .500 on Sunday after starting the year 0-1.
