Summary

The Cowboys took a step backwards defensively, struggling in the 3-4 scheme. Dallas ranked just 19th defensively and allowed 25 points per game. This led to many changes this offseason, most notable moving back to a 4-3 alignment. The Cowboys certainly have the talent to turn things around on this side of the ball. Dallas has two of the best pass-rushing ends in the game in Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. These guys have huge sack potential but need to play more consistent than last season. The pass defense needs to be more consistent. Cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne have ability and potential but the tendency to give up the big play. They'll need to be more consistent if the defense hopes to take a step forward this season. The special teams is alright with Dwayne Harris and Lance Dunbar handling much of the return duties. These guys aren't elite at their position but capable of good things. Fantasy Outlook: This is a fantasy defense with top-five potential. The Cowboys are a good buy-low candidate. They have huge sack potential and should improve on their point and yards allowed totals from lasts season. The secondary is the big concern but could be helped if the pass rush causes all sorts of havoc, which is possible.

Dallas Cowboys OT Tyron Smith agreed to pay his parents in installments after signing a four-year, $12.5 million deal in 2011 after being drafted ninth overall in the first round. Smith's family harassed him for more financial gain after he helped them out, and physical threats lead Smith to file a protective order against his parents last summer to keep them from coming in contact with him. Smith's family, including his brother and sisters, continually demanded money from him and also took more than $1 million from him. 'There was money missing, but I just don't know where it went,' Smith said. 'There were times I would check my statements and it wouldn't make sense and I hadn't authorized it at all. I just felt betrayed and I was like, 'Who can I trust?''

Dallas Cowboys OT Tyron Smith said he would like to add 10 pounds this offseason and play at 315 pounds during the season. 'I just want to be a better run-blocker and be stronger and more physical,' Smith said. 'There were times last year where I felt like I was too fast and I was a little off-balanced. I just basically want to add a little weight and stay there, be fast and strong at the same time.'
