Odds of the Dallas Cowboys signing that key 2013 NFL Free agent that will instantly help them make it over the hump are very slim. If fact, it might not even be possible. The Cowboys are $26 million over the salary cap and have to restructure and release several players in order to just break even. As of December, the Cowboys had $132 million tied up in cap space on 44 players and still had to account for the remaining $5 million penalty for previous sanctions. The Cowboys are counting on Tony Romo and Brandon Carr to sign extensions that would reduce the cap hit… Read more

  • If I were Romo I wouldn't sign an extension and hope to get traded or become a free agent the following year - given the atmosphere in Dallas he would have a better chance winning a Super Bowl with another team - he still has several years left but has to deal with Jerry's inability to provide a supporting cast around him - all the coaching changes will take at least a year or two (especially going to a 4-3 with no depth on the DL - bye bye Ratliff next year) to have results. The fans are against him - Cleveland would be perfect, so would Arizona - even Chicago (Cutler's in the same position there) - all have decent D's and good receivers and no baggage for him - would love to see him screw Jerry by not renegotiating a deal and messing up his cap space - Jerry's done nothing to help him win. Ubtil the fans stop showing up at Jerry world nothing will change - hurting his cash flow is a good start
  • The problem is Jerry Jones, he needs to either step down and retire and get someone as GM who cares about the players and winning and not the $$$ signs and paying players VERY high dollar salaries and make some BIG changes cause his investors are not going to put up with NO $ going towards them & u know Jerry isn't going to pay them out of his pocket thats for dam shure. If everyone would stop going to games and paying the expensive prices for home games i Guarantee JERRY would wake up & realize that GREED dosnt pay the bills cause eventually it will catch up to you and that is what is happening to Jerry NOW !!!
  • Jerry! Save $5,000,000 and get rid of Garrett, and coach the team yourself you are WELL qualified having been part of and putting together Super Bowl Teams. Hire someone who can read defenses and call the right plays, and you manage the game.
  • Way to go JJ. Once again, your skills as a GM are un-rivaled. Your wise free agent and drafting moves has put you right in the crosshairs of armageddon. Also, what a perfect time to change defensive systems. Now you can blame the switch to the 4-3 on your upcoming piss poor season and buy yourself another year to play with your toy. You remind me of a clown in your own circus, STUPID AND SCARY. Boycott the turd that plays in JJ's "stadjum".
  • Someone please explain to me why JJ has not cut Tony Romo. Tony will not win the Boys a Super Bowl. I wish JJ would listen to the fans instead people on the payroll....Just my thoughts!
