The courtship and signing of Clabo, 31, prove age isn’t a deal-breaker. The Cowboys’ offensive line is young and inexperienced, with or without rookie Travis Frederick starting at center or guard, and it could use a veteran’s presence.

The league opinion on the 32-year-old Locklear, a former Redskin and Giant, ascribes to his game a tradeoff between exceptional pass blocking and poor run blocking. Dallas looks to be airing out the offense this year, so that could be an acceptable bargain.
