The Dallas Cowboys had an amazing season that ended in heartbreak after losing to the Packers 34-31 in the divisional round, now that we’re in the offseason let’s take a look on what moves they need to make to improve from last season.
Free Agents that I believe the Cowboys should target: (But don’t expect much, Stephen Jones stated that he didn’t intend to spend much money in FA this year)
WR Kenny Britt- Perfect man to replace Williams who will likely be leaving to get more money, the big bodied receiver is coming off a career year in an awful Rams offense. Britt playing opposite of Dez can be a nightmare for teams.
DE Jabaal Sheard- Sheard was great in New England two years ago but stalled. He’s a good enough pass rusher who is okay with sharing snaps and Dallas needs all the help with the pass rush they can get.
OLB Demarcus Ware- Part of this is bias being Ware is one of my all time favorite cowboys, but that aside I believe he’d still bring a spark to their pass rush with obviously limited snaps. I also think he’ll sign with them with a discount because he wants to go back home.
CB Prince Amukamara- Prince didn’t meet his expectations this year which could make him a very cheap option for Dallas. They’re in a bind with the fact that they could lose both Claiborne and Carr. He wouldn’t be the best, but it’s a hole that we should expect to be filled and guys like Trumaine Johnson, Stephon Gilmore, and AJ Bouye will cost way too much.
S Tony Jefferson- With Wilcox and Church both testing the market it’s Dallas doesn’t get to keep either of them. Jefferson is a ball hawk, and always seems to find action on the field with his 96 tackles, 2 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles. His ability to force turnovers when playing at the line of scrimmage is something Dallas really needs.
