Whether justified or not, owner and general manager Jerry Jones is not worried about the offensive line. After the release of five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Flozell Adams, the Cowboys' re-signed G Montrae Holland to a two-year deal and traded for former first-round draft pick, T Alex Barron.
"[I'm] no longer concerned about the offensive line at all," Jones said recently.
A great deal of this confidence comes from the fact that Hudson Houck is the Cowboys' offensive line coach. He is the highest paid offensive line coach in the league and, arguably, the best. Jones feels now that he's given Houck a good deal of man power to mold.
"This will give Hudson Houck a chance to do his work," Jones said concerning the Barron deal, per the Dallas Morning News. "Hudson, I think, is one of the best coaches in the NFL. He should be doing good work. He's the highest priced offensive line coach in the NFL, and I say that with all due respect to Hudson.
"I told Alex when he came, I had a good visit with him, and told him he was real fortunate to have Hudson as a coach."
