Dal­las $23

Inside Sport - - Punters Chance -

A good Cow­boys team al­ways en­er­gises the NFL fol­low­ing, both with them and against, and this year’s team should pro­vide plenty of nar­ra­tive ma­te­rial. The star trio of run­ning back Ezekiel El­lio…, quar­ter­back Dak Presco… (pic­tured) and re­ceiver Amari Cooper were the sub­ject of con­tract talks in pre­sea­son, and El­lio… sat out camp. Presco…, who turned down a $30m-a-year deal, will be un­der par­tic­u­lar scru­tiny to round out Dal­las’ ground-heavy a…ack, which also has an in­trigu­ing new co-or­di­na­tor in Kellen Moore. Moore is in only his sec­ond year as a coach; he was Presco…’s backup two years ago. If the of­fense can im­prove from its rank of 22nd a year ago, it can count on what is likely to be a top-end D in Big D, led by line­backer Leighton Van­der Esch and safety By­ron Jones.
