The Dallas Cowboys are on a mission to upgrade the inside linebacker position this offseason.
With the additions of Olivier Vernon and DeMarcus Ware to the mix, the team will be looking for a replacement for inside linebacker Justin Durant.
Durant was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but he hasn’t played a down of football.
While he has been active in the offseason workouts, Durant is expected to miss time after undergoing surgery on his left knee.
If Durant is unable to play this season, it’s unclear if the Cowboys will attempt to trade Durant for another player.
Durant, who played in 29 games for the Dallas Bears, started six games last season and recorded two sacks.
He also recorded six tackles, one quarterback hurry and one forced fumble in 2016.
