It appears that the Dallas Cowboys are willing to let yet another defensive end walk in free agency.

According to NFL insider Adam Caplan, former Cowboys' defensive end Jack Crawford is set to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, in hopes of finding a new deal.

The 27-year old initially came to Dallas on a two-year, $1.23 million deal in 2014, and was expected to ask for a raise prior to the start of the 2016 NFL season.

The 6-foot-5, 288-pound pass rusher collected 21 tackles and 4.0 sacks in 16 games last season for the Cowboys. In his four-year career, Crawford has a total of 47 tackles and 6.0 sacks in 41 games.

The Steelers have a need for depth when it comes to defensive linemen, which puts the Steelers and Cowboys in the same boat. His size provides a good fit for the Steelers, along with the depth they need.

The Cowboys on the other hand are beginning to look extremely thin at defensive end, and have a desperate need to get pass-rushers on the roster.

Hopefully they have a plan in place, because it is not looking good at the moment for America's Team.
