Redskins Interested In Peyton Manning, Cowboys Need To Address Secondary Issues

As if the Dallas Cowboys didn't already need to address their woeful secondary. As expected, it turns out the Washington Redskins would indeed have interest in Peyton Manning, should he recover fully from his injury, and become available this offseason. This would be very bad news for the Cowboys, as they'd have to face a Manning behind center for a quarter of the entire season.

Of course, Manning to Washington is far from a guarantee, and it's probably not even his most likely landing spot (I'd put my money on Miami). Still, it's likely that the Redskins will look to upgrade the quarterback position, either through free agency or the draft -- I'm looking at you Robert Griffin III.

The Cowboys will have plenty of cap room to operate with in the offseason. There's no doubt that the defense must be shored up, especially the secondary. With New York's trio of wide receivers emerged as one of the league's best, Michael Vick and friends in Philadelphia and possibly Manning in Washington, it's pretty much imperative that the Cowboys fix their secondary this offseason, or else they could be looking at a last place finish in 2012 -- which could put Jason Garrett out of a job.
