The biggest weak spot for the Dallas Cowboys is on defense and they have been targeting defensive players with the money they saved by cutting DeMarcus Ware. According to ESPN on March 14, one of those players, linebacker Will Herring, is now out of the plans.

That news comes from a source who claims that Herring failed his physical. That may or may not be true, because Herring’s agent said that the Dallas Cowboys’ reneged on the deal with his client.

According to George Mavrikes, he said his client passed the physical, which was the last step to signing with the Cowboys. He said his client has not missed a game in the last two years and is in better condition than 90 percent of the NFL. He said Dallas wants out of the deal because of injury risks, despite the fact that Herring never gets hurt.

The Cowboys wanted him as a special teams player, and his agent said he was fairly priced, especially since he was the special teams captain for the New Orleans Saints last season. Before that, he played for the Seattle Seahawks for four seasons.
