The Cowboys are looking for a big-time pass-rusher this offseason to upgrade a defensive line that ended up jelling and playing pretty well last season, but always lacked the disruptive force that comes from a big-time pass-rusher.

Pierre-Paul just turned 26 years old and is a free agent, and he's going to be a costly one. If the Cowboys do make such a big splash in free agency, it'll hinder what they can do elsewhere with their roster, but it'd definitely be a big splash and an upgrade on the defensive front considering he'd not only be joining the Cowboys but he'd be taken away from a division rival.

Rod Marinelli did a great job with a bunch of no-names up front, but you can bet he'd love to have someone with the star quality of Pierre-Paul.
