Sometimes doing nothing turns out to be a lot of something. Such is the case for the Dallas Cowboys who have remained out of the free agent splash. And out of the trade rumor mill.

DeSean Jackson from the Philadelphia Eagles?

No thanks. We’ll keep our draft picks.

Gone are DeMarcus Ware, Jason Hatcher, and Miles Austin. The chances of free agent Anthony Spencer returning is still in the air. But, why stop with Spencer?

Let him go, too.

I love that the Cowboys are doing nothing. The reality is that the Cowboys don’t have a few pretty pennies to throw around. Reality is reality. Money is money. But smart money earns hardware.

This ain’t Monopoly. This is a game of salary cap. It’s reality and rules. You obey and play. Those that are smart enough to have vision, who obey and play, are the select few who hold the hardware in the end.

Once upon a time, Jerry Jones went all in. Somebody must pay for it. Right? Unfortunately, DeMarcus Ware was the splashed victim.

I’m convinced his exit is a bother to many because for some, it’s admitting or signaling the end. Of opportunity. Of a window. Of an era.

And, with that in mind, I get why his departure can put some to tears.

But this isn’t a Madden video game, where you can easily swing a player here and there to open up some cap space. Yeah, I get it: Our fingers flick better moves on joy sticks than Jerry Jones can simulate in the real world.

It doesn’t take a genius to tell you you’re over the cap. Video games do that just fine (um, Mr. Jones).

    I know it’s hard to see icons leave because of BONE HEADED moves Jerry Jones had made in the past. But I like the way the Team is moving now by not throwing money at aging players. Jerry could have kept Ware, Hatcher and Miles but he didn’t to me that shows something. If it was me I would let Spencer walk too because he is going to ask for more than he is worth so why not let him walk.
