Arguing Bob Sanders, Cowboys are a match

There's no indication that the Cowboys have any interest in oft-injured former Colts safety Bob Sanders. But that didn't stop ESPN Football Outsider Bill Barnwell from speculating that the 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year would be a good fit in Dallas.

Barnwell provided his take on the NFL's biggest offseason moves (Insider link), starting with the Colts' release of Sanders.

He needs an organization that's exhibited a history of turning injury-prone players into contributors, and there's one that fits the criteria and could definitely use a safety: the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys turned around the career of offensive lineman Marc Colombo after he flopped with the Bears because of injury, and with starting safeties Alan Ball and Gerald Sensabaugh hitting free agency, Dallas could opt to take a chance on their medical staff being able to keep Sanders in one piece. The upside is enormous and the gamble is certainly worthwhile.
