Doug Free goes from worst to best OL in NFL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tackle Doug Free has gone from one of the worst offensive lineman in the NFL to one of the best, according to The Dallas Morning News. Free led the NFL in penalties and surrendered the most sacks on the Cowboys last season, but heading into Week 4 at San Diego he's rated as the best tackle in the NFL, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

"I have been playing good," the Cowboys right tackle said. "Still, there are a lot of things you’ve got to keep focusing on, keep working on. It’s never a one-and-done kind of thing. You’ve got to prove yourself each and every week. It’s a continual thing."

Free has only allowed a 1/2 sack and has yet to be flagged for a penalty this season.

"Doug’s done a nice job," head coach Jason Garrett said. "He’s responded really well…. He really has been impressive since the start of OTAs, really trying to take advantage of the opportunity. I think he’s working on some technical things that will help him. I think he’s playing tougher and he’s staying on blocks, both as a pass protector but also in the run game."

Jones: Doug Free, Ron Leary could man guard spots
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys could start a quite inexperienced duo at guard this season, Jerry Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Jones offered that it would not be surprising if converted tackle Doug Free and Ronald Leary, who has been active for just one game in his career, open the regular season as the starters.

The Cowboys signed free agent guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings a year ago for a combined $6.2 million. Bernadeau has been slow to adjust to a move to the left side while Livings has been sidelined since having knee surgery on August 16.

Mackenzy Bernadeau adjusting to position switch
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

When the Cowboys' Doug Free moved from right tackle to right guard, it forced Mackenzy Bernadeau to shift from right guard to left guard. Bernadeau told ESPN.com it's a significant adjustment but it helps that he's played on the left side before.

“It’s just more practice on your technique and repetitions on the plays,” Bernadeau said. “I’ve played left before, so I was familiar with it. The whole offseason I pretty much worked the right side with my steps and getting in synch with the kick and timing and so it’s just an adjustment with that and getting used to doing it with the opposite leg, opposite side and opposite hand.”

Cowboys keeping Doug Free at guard
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Looks like the Cowboys will keep Doug Free at right guard, reports the Dallas Morning News. Free played the position for the first time in his career Saturday against Cincinnati.

Coach Jason Garrett told the paper that the Cowboys started thinking about moving Free from tackle to guard before training camp. “It was one of the things we considered and certainly one of the things we considered when we restructured Doug Free’s contract back in the spring,” Garrett said. “He has the traits to move inside. We thought that might be an option.”
