Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News

Melton underwent surgery for a torn ACL in October, 2013 and is expected to be ready for the start of Dallas' training camp - coach Jason Garrett said on March 26, 2014 that it is 'reasonable' to expect Melton to be healed up by August.

Summary

Melton will be reunited with old defensive coach Rod Marinelli in Dallas who should set him up well to succeed this season in his newly assumed Tampa 2 undertackle role. He is essentially playing on a one year deal which should keep him motivated throughout the season. Although he likely won't have another top level linemen to keep the double teams away, he should remain one of the better DT fantasy options. (May 19)
