Amid a report that the Cowboys have ended their pursuit of free-agent guard Brian Waters because Waters, in the assessment of the Cowboys, “just doesn’t want to play football,” a league source with knowledge of Waters’ thinking tells PFT that Waters wants to play — in the right situation.
“It hasn’t worked out with Dallas for a variety of reasons up to this point,” the source said, “but it isn’t because he does not want to play. He absolutely would play there or somewhere else if it is the right situation in all the ways it needs to be.”
Previously, at least one report pointed to money being the major factor. It apparently was money that prompted Waters to not show up last year in New England, even though he was under contract with the Patriots.
The Patriots eventually released Waters, who spent 11 seasons with the Chiefs, from the reserve/did not report list, making him a free agent. While his services will be far from free, he’s available to the Cowboys or any other team that provide him with the right situation.
