Doug Free lifted Barber way, way up there.
People have been asking me who the Cowboys will go get in free agency. The rumors say they may go after Nnamdi Asomugh because he is a great corner and used to play for the Cowboys new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Oakland.
I say forget that because the Cowboys top free agent target needs to be Doug Free.
Maybe you have heard of him. He is the starting left tackle and he will get plenty of suitors on the open market. Dallas has a problem if they don't bring him back. First-round draft pick Tyron Smith is expected to start at right tackle, not left.
Signing a corner won't mean much if the Cowboys lose Free and quarterback Tony Romo spends the season running for his life.
Free isn't a sexy signing to fans like an elite cornerback would be, but football games are won in the trenches.
