REPORT: Cowboys To Host All-Pro Free Agent With Eyes On Making Super Bowl Run

Fresh off their 45-10 thrashing of the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving, the Dallas Cowboys are sitting pretty in the NFC playoff picture.

They may not be as good as the 49ers, Eagles or Lions – but at 8-3, they will have their say in the matter come January. 

Looking to bolster their roster, Dallas will reportedly host free agent All-Pro linebacker Shaq Leonard this week to see if he’s a fit for their defense.

In a stunning move, Leonard was recently released by the Indianapolis Colts and is now free to sign with anyone after clearing waivers.

Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News reported that a specific date has yet to be finalized, but the visit is expected to take place this week – possible on Wednesday. 

Watkins emphasized the mutual interest between the Cowboys and the talented linebacker.

“With Mike McCarthy saying the Cowboys have interest in Shaq Leonard, a source close to the situation says Leonard will visit the Cowboys this week,” Watkins announced. “A specific date hasn’t been finalized…”

The Cowboys find themselves in need of defensive reinforcements, particularly in the linebacker position, following a season-ending neck injury to Leighton Vander Esch and the loss of rookie DeMarvion Overshown to a torn ACL during training camp.

In Leonard, the Cowboys have the opportunity to secure a formidable addition to their roster. Boasting an impressive career that includes three All-Pro selections, the 28-year-old would bring a wealth of leadership, experience and skill to the team.

Should Leonard decide to join the Cowboys, he would not only be contributing to a team with playoff aspirations but also positioning himself to contend for a Super Bowl title.

Do you think Dallas should sign Leonard?
