Less than 24 hours after losing a veteran swing tackle, the Cowboys signed a replacement.
Dallas agreed to a one-year deal with Ty Nsekhe, a move announced by Elite Loyalty Sports. The veteran has played for five teams in his NFL career — he had two stops in Washington — with 17 starts in 66 career games. He spent his last two years in Buffalo.
SportsDay contributor John Owning: “Longtime followers know that I’ve been advocating for the Cowboys to sign or trade for the journeyman offensive linemen since his time in Washington (2015-18), and the reason is simple: he’s one of the best swing tackles in the league while Dallas has constantly been tripped up by subpar swing tackle play in the meantime.
“At 35 years old, Nsekhe is definitely nearing the end of his utility in the NFL, but given the lack of wear and tear on his body compared to the typical 35-year-old offensive tackle (only 1,700 career snaps), he should still have enough in the tank for another couple years.
“Over the last two seasons, Nsekhe has been the swing tackle for the Buffalo Bills, where he does his job well. Nsekhe didn’t get a ton of opportunities to see the field in 2020, however, in Week 15 against the Denver Broncos with Buffalo’s starting right tackle Daryl Williams injured, Nsekhe was able to play 30 snaps and show that he’s still one of the best swing tackles in the NFL. The drop off from Williams to Nsekhe was nonexistent, as Nsekhe proved to be very effective in filling in at the right tackle position.”
