One of the scariest parts of the 2013 Dallas Cowboys team is the offensive line. For two years now, that line has hurt the Cowboys and limited what Tony Romo could do. ESPN reported on Sept. 5 that Dallas Cowboys VP Stephen Jones feels that signing Brian Waters solves those problems.
Brian Waters started his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted fullback free agent and then went on to have an All-Pro career as an offensive lineman with the Kansas City Chiefs. He last played with the New England Patriots in 2011.
Now, Dallas has brought him back to where it all started, although it wasn't easy. Brian Waters originally rejected the offer and Dallas had to convince him it was the right thing for him to do. Now that he is with Dallas, he is working hard to get ready to be one of Romo's key blockers.
Stephen Jones said that bringing in Waters takes away a big question mark from the Dallas Cowboys offense. He also said that it provides Dallas with good depth. While Jones said that Waters will have to earn the starting job, there is little doubt he takes Mackenzy Bernadeau's job away from him.
He also helps to fill in the holes left by injures to linemen Nate Livings and Ronald Leary. Finally, this helps at the tackle spot too, because now Doug Free can remain at his natural position and not have to move to guard out of necessity.
Stephen Jones also said that Brian Waters looked great in his first workout. Waters said that he hopes he can bring his experience to the Dallas Cowboys to help them learn and improve throughout the season.
