Cowboys would be 'misguided' to think Tavon Austin could replace Cole Beasley's production

In this edition of the Cowboys Ballzy podcast, host David Moore discuss the Dallas Cowboys 2019 free agency. Many major moves had already been reported across the league, including for other teams in the NFC East, but Cowboys fans continue to wait on their team to make a big splash. Hopes of Earl Thomas playing in Dallas have been dashed. Will other free-agent safeties appear on the Cowboys' radar as a result? Or will they simply focus on retaining their own, notably defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence?

Should the Rangers sign Anthony Rendon in free agency?

In this edition of The Rangers Ballzy, hosts Kevin Sherrington, Evan Grant and David Moore talk about the upcoming season and free agency.  That’s the difference between the Rangers’ approach to free agency this year and recent winters past: They are at least willing to play at the top of a free agent market heavy on starting pitching and third basemen. And wouldn’t you just know it, those happen to be their two primary needs. On Monday, by saying the Rangers were prepared to investigate the top of the market, Jon Daniels seemed to imply an increase of $30 million or more would not be out of the question. It would take as much to land one of the premier free agents.

The NFL draft is over. What's next for the Cowboys?

In this edition of the Cowboys Ballzy podcast, host Kevin Sherrington, David Moore and Evan Grant chat about the 2019 NFL Draft and the future of the Dallas Cowboys.  In a perfect world, every Dallas Cowboys draft pick would enter the NFL and provide value commensurate with their draft slot, but that rarely (if ever) happens. Not all draft picks are created equal. In theory, the best players are selected first, meaning the expected value added by a first-round pick should exceed that of a second-round pick and so on. So the expectations of each prospect are based upon where they are selected.
