07:11 AM ET 08.09 | Can Dallas lure him out of retirement? Even while they have spoken with other offensive lineman, Dallas' top choice at guard was, and continues to be, former Chiefs and Patriots standout Brian Waters, said a team source. The Cowboys have let it be known to Waters that they want him to come to Dallas to help fortify the offensive line. They tried signing Waters before reaching an agreement with former Jets guard Brandon Moore, who abruptly retired. Dallas is continuing to stay in touch with Waters, who would like to play but doesn't need to play. In other words, if the Cowboys make an intriguing enough offer, the former Pro Bowl guard is willing to come out of retirement. Everyone has a price.

If he's willing to put the remote down and get off the couch, it would be typical JJ to overpay for spare parts.

36 years old. Getting up there in football years.

August 9, 2013  08:04 AM ET

Take them for broke, my man.

August 9, 2013  08:04 AM ET

Dude hasn't played in 18 months...


Just move on!

Your pro scouting department is front and center now. Nearly all of those 254 just drafted players will be kept. Teams hate to admit the first year they "was wrong." 250 veteran players will be released. some of them play OL. Patience.

Hey Jerry how about drafting smarter? As in let the coaches handle it.

What indication has Waters shown that he wants to play?

August 9, 2013  08:55 AM ET

I find it hard to believe there's not a bunch of younger guards out there somewhere.

JJ's criteria is - 'got a pulse'?

Water's isn't broke yet? Good for him!

There are, but with a lower pedigree and/or less quality experience. Remember, JJ is gearing up for a Super Bowl run.

Wow.. Next he'll be calling Larry Allen.

Maybe JJ wants a pulse transplant donor?

Fig Newton always kept himself in good shape, give him a call. Hey, wasn't JJ a guard at Arkansas? Suit the bad boy up.

August 9, 2013  11:48 AM ET

I hear Conrad Dobler is available.

This would not surprise me.

August 9, 2013  12:16 PM ET

When will he pass the conditioning test?

Newton? He does commercials now for a weight loss clinic. He couldn't play TE with the weight loss it looks like he underwent.
