With Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo possibly out for the rest of the season with a broken left fibula, we're about to see what former North Illinois great Doug Free has to offer. Everyone has talked about his potential since he was taken in the fourth round of the '07 draft, but we've never seen him take that onto the field.
Dallas Morning News columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor says it's time to take off the training wheels and let Free replace Colombo in the lineup. The Cowboys haven't been good at drafting and developing offensive linemen over the past decade. It's time to see what kind of player they have in Free.
