Could Chris McAlister be a fit with the Cowboys?
May 10, 2009 (The Dallas Morning News delivered by Newstex ) --


In a column about six unemployed big-name vets, blog buddy Albert "Einstein" Breer of the Sporting News calls the Cowboys an ideal fit for former Ravens CB Chris McAlister.

The situation: McAlister, 31, is rehabbing from arthroscopic knee surgery in Los Angeles and is expected to be cleared for all Football activities by late June. He'd like to stay near his native California. The Seahawks and Chargers have shown interest, as have the Cowboys , who intrigue McAlister very much.Scout's take: "He's got a lot of tread on the tire. Watching him last year, he's without question a big injury risk. Athletically, while he still has the instincts, the drop-off in long speed and explosiveness were noticeable. He probably should've gone to safety a while ago. At his age, do you do it now? It'll be difficult if he doesn't get in a camp, I could see him not playing this year."

If the Cowboys have shown interest, it's lukewarm at best, according to the Valley Ranch rocks we turned over.

Would the three-time Pro Bowler fit with the Cowboys ? Well, Terence Newman is the only cornerback on the roster with significant starting experience.

However, McAlister could be a progess-stopper for second-year corners Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick. Or he might not be as good as either of them at this point of his career.

The Cowboys have plenty of competition at safety after signing Gerald Sensabaugh and drafting DeAngelo Smith and Michael Hamlin, so adding McAlister with the plan to convert him to a free safety doesn't seem to make much sense.

You also have to consider McAlister's character concerns. The Cowboys have made a concerted effort to clean up their locker room this off-season. Why add a guy near thge end of his career who was benched after running into trouble with Ravens coach John Harbaugh

The Cowboys might be a good fit for McAlister, but there's no reason for the interest to be mutual unless injuries hit the secondary.
