Your number 1 source for all things HaW Dallas Cowboys! Disappointment. The only word you can use to describe the last 2 seasons. The Cowboys have been eliminated in back to back NFC Championship games and now the ride could be coming to an end. Salary Cap catches everyone eventually and the Boys are no different. Already this offseason Dallas has said goodbye to 2 huge playmakers on each side of the ball. Julius Thomas has been a mainstay over his time in Dallas. He was a crutch for Jimmy Russell as he grew into the force he is today and his contributions to the offense will be missed here. We want to wish JT all the luck with his new team in Portland. Equally as sad news to report here, Sean Lee has been sent to Chicago to finish out his career. Sean Lee was a veteran leader on this defense but his being moved was rumored for some time. Sliding performance and the growth of JaMichael McElroy as the leader of this defense are said to be factors alongside Lee's staggering contract number. Best of luck to you as well Sean up there in Chicago. Make us all proud! Now for the good news! 2 huge Contracts came due this offseason. Celebrated Defensive End Randy Gregory and MLB JaMicahael McElroy. With the contracts of JT and Sean Lee clearing the Boys were loaded in cap and ready to sign their 2 defensive All-Pros. McElroy signed on the dotted line after just a few hours of negotiations. He wanted to stay a Cowboy and everyone from the Owner down wanted him here. Randy Gregory was a tougher contract. Rumor has it that negotiations came down to the wire. The owner himself was negotiating with Gregorys agent well into the early morning hours but from what we hear out of Valley Ranch Gregory will be a Cowboy for the next 6 years. Wheres does this leave us? Sean lee and Julius Thomas are gone. McElroy and Gregory are still here. So the lingering question is where does this leave the Cowboys? Anthony Hitchens has been tabbed to start at ROLB and Gavin Escobar will finally get his day in the sun at Tight End. So obviously neither of these guys are as talented as the 2 that just left but can they fill the void? Brice Butler proved to be a wise acquisition for last offseason as he was just a few yards short of 1,000 yards receiving. Dez was once again Dez and Terrance Williams continues to be steady. Christine Michael had another year of 1000+ yards on the ground and The Cowboys still have the best offensive line in football. So the point of all of that is to say Dallas will be fine. This draft will be huge for the longevity of this team but the show must, and will, go on. We fully expect to see the Cowboys dominate the NFC East again and contend for a Super Bowl. you can count on it. We'll be back in the coming days with contract figures as they are finalized.
