Newy Scruggs, sports anchor at NBC5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and radio host weekly from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on NBC Sports Radio Sirius XM 213/202 and NBCSportsRadio.com, answered questions during a live chat recently. Here are some of the highlights.
If the Cowboys can't re-sign DLaw, which big-time defensive lineman do you think they'd go after? Dontari Poe? Bennie Logan?
Scruggs: The Cowboys will not lose Tank Lawrence. Tell me the last free agent Jerry Jones really wanted to keep that he could not?
Jerry Jones does not lose players he has a strong desire to keep.
And oh by the way, the Cowboys can use the franchise tag to keep Lawrence with the team in 2018.
Bottom line, Tank Lawrence will be playing football for the Cowboys this fall if that is what Jerry Jones wants.
The player has stated he wants to remain a Cowboy.
Assuming they're both healthy and on the field, who's more important to keep in the long term: David Irving or DeMarcus Lawrence?
Scruggs: Tank Lawrence is the priority. End of story.
Who is the most underrated player on the Cowboys roster?
