The Cowboys are preparing already for new Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, who the Skins will draft with the #2 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
“Any time you have a team getting a good quarterback, whether it be the Redskins or the Giants and the Eagles who have good quarterbacks, then you obviously want to counter that with good defensive players,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Dallas Morning News. “We think we did that with (Brando) Carr. He’s a press corner. I think he fits with what we want to do on defense, which is get in their face and press them up.
“I think the other thing is we have to get pressure. We obviously have one of the elite pressure players in the league in DeMarcus Ware. I think we have to get (Anthony) Spencer more involved in terms of productivity. Then you look at our defensive linemen. (Jay) Ratliff and (Jason) Hatcher and those guys, I think we have to get better there but I think we can do that.
“I think the Giants showed with their late season surge when they got healthy in the defensive line they were able to get that pressure on good quarterbacks. It certainly disrupts.
“A young player like RG3, if we can get pressure on guys like that, I think it effects their accuracy, I think it effects their productivity and I think it will allow us to have success against them.’’
