I don't know if this was a thing where ESPN just wanted to drive traffic so they required a Cowboys-related headline/top tidbit for the piece or what, but Bob Sanders in Dallas is currently just wild speculation, and speculation that goes against actual real world evidence.

Dallas is not one of the teams that Sanders has visited (the list is Buffalo, Jacksonville, and Washington), and despite Sensabaugh testing free agency, FREE safety is Dallas' major hole at the moment, not strong safety, as evidenced by their league-leading number of passing TDs allowed last year and Alan Ball's consistent failure to be any good at the profession of football.

Atogwe or Michael Huff seem much more appealing candidates, if we're going to just speculate in an information vacuum on landing spots for free agents.
