Last offseason, the Dallas Cowboys went out and got a pair of new guards, and they didn’t exactly come cheap. Mackenzy Bernadeau signed for four years and $11 million, Nate Livings for five years and $18.75 million, and both underperformed in their first season with Dallas while struggling with nagging health issues.
But owner and general manager Jerry Jones remains high on his guards, saying this week that they should be good to go in 2013 provided they can get through the offseason healthy. Last offseason, Livings was forced to deal with a hamstring injury, while Bernadeau had a hip injury that would eventually require surgery.
“I’m looking forward to them having the full offseason, hopefully, without having to be compromised by injury, and then of course, full training camp,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “As the season went along and they got clear of some of the injury aspects to them, they played at a level that met my expectations. They did.”
