Free Agency is an expensive place to shop. And contrary to the popular belief around the league about the "crazy spending Jerry Jones", since the ground was broken on his new stadium in Arlington, the Cowboys have spent the bulk of their cash on re-signing their own free agents and the art work at the new palace (as well as tv repairs for the most expensive and over-the-top television in history).
A quick review of the last five seasons of free agency will show that the Cowboys have not stolen headlines since the purchase of "Bigg", Leonard Davis from Arizona, five years ago this week:
Leonard Davis - 342007 signed a 7-year, 49m contract
Ken Hamlin - 3242007 signed a 1-year, 2.5m contract
Keith Brooking - 2282009 signed a 3-year, 6m contract
Igor Olshansky - 362009 signed a 4-year, 18m contract
Gerald Sensabaugh - 392009 signed a 1-year, 1.75m contract
Kenyon Coleman - 7302011 signed a 2-year, 3.75m contract
