The first step for the Dallas Cowboys as they determine their roster for 2014 will be to see which free agents on their team they want to keep.
It won’t be easy. With the Cowboys reportedly about $23-24 million over the salary cap, depending on the source, the Cowboys not only need to clear that money, but also some maneuverability for rookie contracts and free agents.
Earlier this week we published the list of the Cowboys’ 2014 free agents. We’ve also filed stories about which of their own free agents the Cowboys should keep and take a pass on keeping. Below are five players that are scheduled to hit the free agent market in March that the Cowboys should keep an eye on. This list is put together under the expectation that the Cowboys will not be players for major free agents, thanks to their cap constraints.
