The Dallas Cowboys have been traditionally quiet during the first week of the NFL’s 2018 free agency period. No, this is not because the Jones family is currently on vacation in the Bahamas, it is simply not the way this team operates anymore.

Dallas watched Anthony Hitchens, Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber sign with other teams. They sat out of the “Honey Badger sweepstakes”, and appear to have little interest in Ndamukong Suh’s price tag. They recently released longtime corner Orlando Scandrick. However, it now appears the Cowboys will start the ‘addition’ phase of the offseason.

According to multiple sources, the Cowboys are set to host former Patriots free agent tackle Cameron Fleming for a visit on Monday and Tuesday.

Fleming was a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in the 2014 draft. He played his college ball at Stanford where he earned All-Pac 12 second team honors. Once with the Patriots, Fleming became a two time Super Bowl champion, seeing time as a starter, swing tackle and extra blocker in heavy formations. Last season Fleming found himself starting key games for the Patriots at right tackle including the AFC championship and Super Bowl.

Fleming is a native of Fort Hood, Texas and could be interested in returning home to wear the star in Dallas. If he does indeed sign, one would think La’El Collins, last season’s right tackle, would move back to left guard.

In addition to Fleming, the Cowboys have also been linked to interior offensive lineman Marcus Martin. Martin is a former third-round pick of the 49ers. He has struggled to find consistent playing time with San Fransisco and Cleveland over the past four seasons. Martin does possess the position flex to play both guard and center, something this front office has desired in the past.

No official dates have been announced on any potential Martin visit.
