    Von Miller of the Denver Broncos celebrates after a sack on 4th down in the fourth quarter during the AFC Divisional Playoff Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Mile High on January 17, 2016 in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos defeated the Steelers 23-16.

    In an ongoing thread of posts, we'll discuss potential free agent targets for the Dallas Cowboys coming off a 4-12 season, thanks in large part to several key injuries.

    Target: Von Miller, LB/DE

    2015 stats:35 tackles, 11 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries in regular season

    Miller, who has 2 1/2 sacks in the Broncos' two postseason games so far and will get a chance to add to that total in Super Bowl 50, has been a dominant force this year for the Broncos and now has 62 1/2 career sacks in five seasons. Do the math, and that's more than 12 sacks per year.

    So basically, he's Greg Hardy without the huge headache and PR nightmare that comes with that guy. Miller has been an outside linebacker in the Broncos' 3-4 defense but could easily move down to the defensive end spot in the Cowboys' 4-3 scheme.

    Most importantly in this whole equation is the fact Miller is a DFW native, having dominated his high school days back at DeSoto before heading off to Texas A&M. Could it mean a hometown discount? Maybe.
