The Dallas Cowboys have played their final preseason game and one former player thinks the team has a massive hole going into the 2022 season.
Dallas is coming off an NFC East title, but the offseason has been a hectic one.
Tyron Smith, an All-Pro left tackle, suffered a serious leg injury at practice earlier this week. He is undergoing surgery and will be out until at least December. Former Dallas Cowboys star Nate Newton is among those calling out the franchise following the Tyron Smith injury.
Newton, at a team event on Thursday night, called out the franchise.
“We’re hurtin.’ This puts a lot of pressure on Dak,” Newton told reporters.
“Kellen Moore and the coaches don’t need to be at this event tonight. They need to be in the meeting room figuring this out.”
Newton began his professional playing career in the USFL, joining the Tampa Bay Bandits for two seasons in 1984 and 1985. When the league eventually shut down, Newton joined Dallas in 1986.
