Warning Signs: Dallas Cowboys Free Agency Incompetence

By Alex Al-Kazzaz

It's not unusual for the Dallas Cowboys to be silent on the verge of or during free agency. So far this offseason, the biggest story surrounding the team's future is whether or not Dak Prescott is worthy and deserving of an extension. Somehow, that story overshadows the team's hiring of Mike Zimmer as defensive coordinator.

As the week begins, Tony Pollard will sign a three-year, $24 million deal with Tennessee. Dorance Armstrong and Tyler Biadasz will reunite with Dan Quinn in Washington. Philadelphia signed Saquon Barkley, and New York signed Devin Singletary. In addition, Austin Ekeler is reportedly leaving the Chargers to sign with Washington. The new league year hasn't even started, and a lot has already happened. And Dallas has done absolutely nothing.

Dallas has never been known for going shopping in free agency. Frankly, the team's track record is not positive. Back in 2012, Dallas took a chance on CB Brandon Carr and paid a ton to sign him and it didn't work out in the long term. In 2020, Dallas signed Ha Ha Clinton-Dix only to release him before the start of the season. Dontari Poe was another failed experiment, and so was Brandon Weeden, and the list continues.

The NFL draft is a little under two months away. It's unclear what is on Dallas' plan. But since they've done nothing so far via free agency, should the world be convinced that the Dallas organization has a serious plan for the draft? Let's not forget that Mike McCarthy is still at the helm. And Jerry Jones is still running the show.
