Don’t sleep on this guy., Cowboys Nation.
The Dallas Cowboys are sitting in pretty good shape along the offensive line. And considering they’re coming off a season where every one of their starters not named La’el Collins missed some time, that depth certainly comes in handy. The team called on their reserves quite a bit last season as players like Joe Looney, Cameron Fleming, and Xavier Su’a-Filo all saw plenty of action last year. Filling in for Travis Frederick after he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, Looney started all 16 games at center. Replacing Connor Williams at left guard, Su’a-Filo started eight games. And after Tyron Smith was dealing with elbow issues, Fleming started three games at left tackle.
The team is expected to start the season with the usual suspects, including their three All-Pro’s - Smith, Zack Martin, and Frederick. And with La’el Collins and what looks to be a much improved Williams at left guard, the table is set for the Cowboys starting offensive line to have a strong year.
