Mixed emotions, then a comfort level in Dallas for Wallingford's Dan Connor

There's room to park 50,000 cars in here.
More on the way about Dan Connor, the two-time Delaware County Daily Times player of the year out of Strath Haven High School who recently signed a two-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

Connor, you probably guessed by now,  has taken some playful heat from friends for enlisting with the Cowboys.

Just say he had mixed emotions taking the trip, but soon realized it was an opportunity he couldn't pass up in a free agent market full of inside linebackers.

"It's kind of the business side of football," Connor said. "And I'm not real good at that side. I wanted to get it over  with quick."

Connor got it over with at an unusually good rate. I'm hearing the two-year deal is worth $7 million, a minor coup for the position this early in free agency. And remember Connor will be just 28 when the deal expires and he's eligible for free agency again.
