The Dallas Cowboys started the 2014 offseason an estimated $30 million over the NFL salary cap limit. After a few cuts and a couple contract adjustments, Dallas is now nearly under the cap. But their financial situation still prohibits them from being major players in upcoming free agency. But is this a blessing or a curse?
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones explained the situation this way to SiriusXM NFL Radio last month:
“The only thing the cap issues do with us is we can’t be big players in free agency, and I think history will tell you that being a big player in free agency is overrated and usually detrimental to the growth of a franchise, because a lot of these guys are leaving their other team for a reason. It’s usually because [those teams] don’t want to pay them and usually that’s for a reason.”
