The Dallas Cowboys are expected to move on from Pro Bowl center, Tyler Biadasz next month during free agency. It’s another year of having questions about the Cowboys’ offensive line. Many around the media and even fans anticipate that Dallas is moving from their starting center. It won’t be an easy process getting him back as they have to focus on the financial strain that comes with it.
Coaching moves like finding a new defensive coordinator are blowing them out of doing anything. Also, other free agents like Tyron Smith are getting more attention, but Dallas may have to reconsider. It would still be a deep hole to fill if they let go of Biadasz, but at the same time, they may hit the cap space. It’s going to be a tough situation to see who the Cowboys will prioritize this offseason.
Biadasz might not be a star yet, but he still provides value to the offensive line that struggled in the past with injuries. He may prove that he can continue being an NFL starter, and those things aren’t easy. It’s up to Dallas if they want to keep him for the upcoming season, but they may not be able to afford it. They can’t afford to pay stars a hefty price since Jerry Jones and the organization already believe in saving cap space.
Dallas will have to decide which players are worth keeping on their team, unfortunately. The main consideration would be how Biadasz could be for the future of the offensive line. Do the Cowboys take the risk and find more talent in the NFL Draft?
Dallas Cowboys May Move on From Center Tyler Biadasz
NFL Twitter Reacts to the Rumors
Many fans on social media are hoping the Cowboys bring him back after free agency. However, there are some making mock draft projections of how replaceable he could be. They said Oregon center, Jackson Powers-Johnson could be the one to replace Biadasz if Dallas drafts him. The question is if he’ll even be available by the time the Cowboys are ready to draft.
The Dallas Cowboys have the No. 24 pick in the NFL Draft this upcoming year, and their success with it has been evident. This doesn’t mean Powers-Johnson will be there once the Cowboys are up to make their pick. They may have to settle or they probably won’t pick him at all. Also, he may not produce well in the NFL and that’s a possibility due to high expectations.
Any scenario down the road is likely for the Cowboys. What fans are hoping for is their offensive starting line to be healthy to protect star quarterback, Dak Prescott. Prescott also needs a new deal, too, so some difficult decisions will be made.

No. Sign Tyler Biadasz instead. He's better and less of an injury risk

Is Biadasz Really a Liability?
This is probably the main question that Dallas and the rest of the staff have to decide come next month. In many reports, he wasn’t considered a liability during the season when the offensive line struggled. The only realistic option probably for the Cowboys for fast success would be to dip in free agency. However, Dallas has been reliant on the draft to build the foundation of their roster.
Another player that Dallas could look into this year’s draft is Troy Fautanu from Washington. He played offensive tackle in college, but he could switch positions if he lands in Dallas. He has similar characteristics as Biadasz and could be a legitimate first-round pick. However, is he Biadasz? No.
The Cowboys may have to compare players on their offensive line to ask themselves if are they a liability. This would probably be the likely scenario that Dallas will indeed choose to decide who they’re letting walk.
