Veteran offensive tackle Cameron Bradfield was signed by the Dallas Cowboys just in time for the beginning of training camp in Oxnard California.
According to a tweet by his agent, Andy Simms, Cameron Bradfield agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday. He has started 27 of a possible 41 games since being signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
The former Grand Valley State stand-out, Cameron Bradfield, was one of seven to workout for the Cowboys in early June. The Cowboys originally signed five from that group with Bradfield becoming the sixth. This is further evidence that the Cowboys are not putting a whole lot of faith in their 2015 draft pick, Chaz Green.
Following a performance where Chad Henne was sacked 10 times and their offense managed a total of only 148 yards, the Jacksonville Jaguars released Cameron Bradfield, a fourth-year veteran who started the first two games of the 2014 season for them at right tackle.
The news was first reported by the Florida Times-Union, which cited a league source.
Cameron Bradfield spent three full seasons with the Jaguars before being released on September 16, 2014. Bradfield was primarily responsible for the four sacks recorded by Washington Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and was benched in favor of Sam Young during the fourth quarter of the Jaguars’ 41-10 loss.
On January 1, 2015, Bradfield was signed to a reserve/future contract by the Arizona Cardinals. On September 5, 2015, he was released by the Cardinals.
My biggest concern entering the 2016 NFL season outside of the depth on the defense was the lack of depth along the offensive line. We have all experienced life without Tony Romo and the Cowboys have done little to nothing in terms of providing a solid swing tackle. The thought of what may happen if the All-Pro Tyron Smith goes down is the stuff nightmares are made of.
There has been a lot of hype by the Dallas media and high expectations from the Cowboys front office for the second year player Chaz Green, but signing a player off of the sidewalk who was benched the last time he suited up for allowing 4 sacks against division rival Ryan Kerrigan, raises some red flags. Especially when you consider the Cowboys dropped a 3rd round draft pick on Green and Cameron Bradford was an undrafted free agent. At this point all I can say is:
What are they thinking?
