The next most glaring area to improve on Dallas last season was the linebacker spot next to the talented Sean Lee.
Keith Brooking and Bradie James always carried themselves as true professionals for their careers, but it was painfully obvious they no longer played at a high enough level to warrant a starting spot. The Cowboys certainly upgraded the spot with the signing of Dan Connor from the Panthers, and also have the availability of 2011 second-round pick, Bruce Carter, for a full camp.
Connor (26 years old) and Carter (24 years old) give the Cowboys young talented inside linebackers to not only split the duties of working with Sean Lee, but also provide quality depth behind Lee, should any injury occur.
Last year was Connor’s best season with 75 tackles with the Panthers, and now that he's teaming back up with Lee and Carter, the Cowboys will have guys flying around the middle of the field and making plays instead of hanging on, hoping someone falls over.
