As we shift into the summer months of the Cowboys' offseason, we will continue to analyze the entire roster with our continued position series.

Each day, we will dissect a different aspect about the position, ranging from position battles, to under-the-radar players to simply answering questions that have yet to be resolved.

This week, we're taking a closer look at the entire special teams unit, a group that cost the Cowboys several times last season.

Monday: What's New?

Can “Chemistry & Pride” Rebuild Special Teams?

What's New?

He didn't say it just once - but probably closer to three or four times when he met with the media back in January. New special teams coach John Fassel knows there will be plenty of changes to his unit this year, and he's not concerned about what happened, or didn't happen, with the special teams in 2019.

So forgive him if he says "blank slate" a few times as he tries to turn things around for the special teams in 2020.

Fassel is a veteran coach who has helped put Sebastian Janikowski and Shane Lechler in the Pro Bowl for Oakland and then Greg Zuerlein, who has now joined him in Dallas and will compete for the place-kicking duties.
