In the last week the Cowboys offensive line has gone from stout to holding on to a thread only a month prior to the season opener.
Jacob Farrell was the first transfer of the week. News broke early in the day that he had put his name into the transfer portal. Farrell later announced that he was in fact leaving the program. At the time no information was given to why he chose to leave.

Farrell played in only two games for the Cowboys in his career. He played against McNeese State and Oregon State both in the 2019 season after redshirting his first season with the program.
However, Farrell was expected to compete for a starting job for the Cowboys in 2020 after Dylan Galloway left the program due to injuries.
Only days after Farrell’s announcement Bryce Bray announced that he would leave the program. Bray leaves a large hole in the offensive line as a tenured starter after last season. Bray was expected to retain his starting position, but instead Charlie Dickey and his staff will have to find a replacement quickly.

Both Farrell and Bray will ask to leave the team after a violation of team rules, first reported by Robert Allen of Pokes Report.
When Spring camp first started the Cowboys had little holes to fill in the offensive line, but now have lost three key pieces to Spencer Sanders protection group.
