There were more than a few eyebrows raised across the National Football League when the Indianapolis Colts decided to part ways with three-time All-Pro linebacker Shaq Leonard. Right now, he's a free-agent; could the Dallas Cowboys come calling? 

According to team owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who will never pass up a chance to improve his multi-billion dollar investment, they've already reached out to him. 

"Contact has been made, but I'm sure every team is assuming that if they are in the hunt, that they could have an interest in him," Jones said. "But first, we have some questions we need to check on health-wise, things like that. I don't, right now, want to be on that list. I want to go do our homework and do what we should be doing and see if this thing might fit us. We've done no more than that."

It would also make sense for the Cowboys to make such a move, given the fact that linebacker Leighton Vander Esch is out for the rest of the season. 

"I don't know about that," he said. "We had a short meeting on that before the game and we'll see how we do with our evaluation. We'll look at him pretty good. Look at some health things. I know a lot of teams are looking at him. I don't want to give an indication of the degree of our interest with him."

Cowboys fans, should they pull the trigger on this move?
