Cowboys Rumors: Jason Witten As A Cowboys Coach? 3-4 Defense? Coaching Staff Moves? Leighton Vander Esch Surgery

Dallas Cowboys rumors continue to center on the Cowboys’ coaching staff, as Mike McCarthy is overhauling the staff and bringing in his guys. Could Cowboys Tight End Jason Witten join the staff? And what about a possible defensive scheme change? There are also some free agency and draft targets at safety discussed, featuring Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Grant Delpit. Plus, Leighton Vander Esch has undergone surgery for his neck issue. 

Mike McCarthy is the Cowboys new head coach and the coaching staff is undergoing a major haul. Could Jason Witten be one of the new assistants? It makes sense for Jerry Jones and for Witten, but is it what McCarthy wants? Speaking of the Cowboys coaches, they’ve made some more staff moves at linebacker, offensive line and strength and conditioning. The coaches in are Scott McCurley and Jeff Blasko, while Mike Woicik is out. 

The Cowboys defense ran a 4-3 scheme last year, but could they make the move to a 3-4 scheme this season? And if they do, just how major of a change is it? What roles would change and who could be on their way out? Does DeMarcus Lawrence fit that scheme? 

Safety is a big need for the Cowboys this offseason, so will they finally spend a high pick or big money in free agency? Cowboys Report host Tom Downey takes a look at two targets: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Grant Delpit.
