FRISCO - The Dallas Cowboys’ offense should shine in 2021. The defense, however, is in the middle of a complete overhaul being overseen by new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

Quinn being installed as the new defensive coordinator is certainly a factor that must be considered when grading position groups. Also a must when gauging and predicting: The injury history for players within that group.
