2. Will the Dallas Cowboys let some defensive line free agents walk to the Chicago Bears?

The Dallas Cowboys loaded up on depth on the defensive line and it did not work. They still have Demarcus Lawrence, and they have to pay Micah Parsons soon, which will make some of these lineman decisions tough. 

The Cowboys drafted Mazi Smith in round one with the intention of letting Jonathan Hankins walk, but Smith did not play well enough this year to be trusted. Hankins also may be looking for a role that is clearer than a team that has Andrew Billings. 

Neville Gaillmore did not live up to expectations with the Cowboys and could be signed cheaply as a depth option who would compete with Zacch Pickens.

However, the main draw from Dallas will be the edge rushers. Dorance Armstrong and Dante Fowler would both be excellent fits in the Matt Eberflus scheme, and both would be huge upgrades over Rasheem Green. 

Armstrong is still young and has had 16 sacks over the last two years, so he may get some money this offseason. Fowler would be in Green's price range, with the expectation that it would be much better. Both would be smart additions to the edge rusher room.
