According to ESPNDallas.com, second-year defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford should have an expanded role this coming season
The third-round pick out of Boise State performed well in a limited role last season. That role should expand in his second season, when he’ll back up Anthony Spencer at the strongside defensive end and could also get playing time at both interior spots. Can Crawford prove that he’s ready to be a starter in 2014? That would allow the Cowboys to let Spencer leave in free agency instead of signing him to a lucrative long-term deal that could be regrettable a few years down the road. There has been a lot of good buzz around Valley Ranch this offseason about Crawford, a low-fat, 285-pound physical specimen.
