The Micah Parsons legend continues to grow. The Cowboys star linebacker once again showed off his impressive speed, dusting more NFL players after winning the fastest man competition during Pro Bowl weekend. While his speed might top the list, is he the best off-ball linebacker in the NFL or does Darius Leonard still hold the top spot?

Fellow linebacker Von Miller was looking towards a deal with Dallas early in the free agency cycle but it ended in disappointment for the Cowboys. New reports confirm Dallas offered Miller $51 million total less than the Bills.

After a season where Greg Zuerlein made fans bite their nails during every kick, can rookie kicker Jonathan Garibay allow the Cowboys to sit back without worry during field goal attempts?

Looking at the NFC East as a whole, Dallas and Philadelphia dominate the offensive talent and it suggests those two finishing at the top of the division in 2022. Can the Cowboys break the 18-year curse of no repeat champions? This and more in the latest News and Notes.
