The whole NFL is rapidly approaching the start of Free Agency. The benefit of having free agency before the draft is that teams can address needs with veterans if they want. Right now there is only one position I would say cannot use an upgrade and that is kicker. Not because Dan Bailey played so well, it’s just that Dallas has three on the roster two vets and one said to be better than Bailey. So with so much of an open market for Dallas here are my five thoughts.
1. Should the Cowboys get Peyton Manning?
In a word NO! Manning is great QB no doubt but besides the fact that Manning is coming of multiple neck injuries, he is 4 years older than Romo, and he will command a lot of money he should not be picked up by Dallas. No the real reason not to sign Manning is that he is not a plug and play quarterback. All QB’s have to develop with their receivers, but Manning seems to need more time. He would spend countless hours throwing to Reggie Wayne and that is just a pregame warm up. Mann...

The Dallas Cowboys finished like I thought they would, 8-8. This is a time when I hate being right. Of the six winnable games for Dallas they lost only one, Arizona. I said for them to be successful they needed to win 4 of their 6 divisional games and beat the Jets. They did neither of these and so they ended up with only 8 wins. The only team they defeated with more than 8 wins...
According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the Dallas Cowboys will likely make an effort to solidify their offensive line in free agency by pursuing Saints guard Carl Nicks.
The Cowboys have been restructuring contracts like Dez Bryant’s and some others to make room under the cap, in order to land a guy like Nicks.
Just like 20 other teams this week, the Cowboys have used their franchise tag. Free agent linebacker Anthony Spencer was hit with the tender yesterday. The move is getting mixed reviews from the fans, mostly because they didn’t want to lose him for nothing. However, an $8.8 million salary in 2012 for a player who was very inconsistent the season before...
The Patriots are one of the teams rumored to be interested in landing soon-to-be free agent Anthony Spencer. But, according to this report, they may not get that chance. Aside from tagging Spencer, the Cowboys may not be willing to part with their prized defender.
Houston Texans defensive end Mario Williams will become an unrestricted free agent on March 13, quickly propelling upward as one of the top players available this Tuesday. There's no telling how much money he'll eventually sign, but it could be closer to the $100 million range, despite the fact he's failed to generate more than 10 quarterback sacks in the past three...
