Dallas Cowboys Have Reached Out To Retired Tackle

The Dallas Cowboys just suffered a devastating injury to their offensive line, with star Tyron Smith reportedly set to miss months of action after a leg injury, and given the Cowboys Super Bowl aspirations in 2022, it makes sense that they don't want to ride with a backup. That's why today, retired Super Bowl Champion and NFL veteran of 16 seasons Andrew Whitworth received a call from Dallas to replace Smith, and even at 40 years old, there's little doubt that he'd do a good job in the role.

As of right now, it's Tyler Smith who will get the best shot at replacing Tyron Smith, but Whitworth revealed that he's been getting calls from several teams about a comeback, but gave an interesting tidbit as to whether it may be possible. "The problem is they’re calling and texting the wrong person. They need to be texting and calling Melissa Whitworth and the kids, because they have final approval on whether I’m ever going to play football again.”

At this point, it's more likely than not that Tyler Smith will be the fill in for the Cowboys for now, but with other names like Eric Fisher out there, there's a good chance that Dallas find someone to compete for the role, it just may not be a Super Bowl winner like Whitworth.
