The Dallas Cowboys have had a big offseason so far. After franchise tagging quarterback Dak Prescott, the Cowboys made sure to lock up Amari Cooper to a massive five-year, $100 million deal. They then were able to sign defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

While the signing of McCoy was a big move for the Cowboys, they may not be done looking to upgrade at the position.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cowboys and free agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe are working on a deal that could be finalized at some point on Monday if things go well.

Poe was teammates with McCoy last season with the Carolina Panthers. They are two big bodies on the line and would be a nice upgrade for the Cowboys in 2020.

During the 2019 season with the Panthers, Poe ended up playing in 11 games. He recorded 22 tackles and four sacks on the year. Those numbers aren’t great, but his 6-foot-3 and nearly 350-pound frame would be huge for the Cowboys.

At 29 years old, Poe and McCoy would help Dallas clog the line against opposing running backs. Poe also likely won’t break the bank for the Cowboys. They should absolutely try to finalize this and bring him in.

Expect to hear more about this in the coming hours. Poe and the Cowboys seem motivated to get something done and he could be the next big addition for a Dallas team looking to stock up for a Super Bowl run.
