Dallas Cowboys: Adrian Peterson, the Draft and a Super Bowl
By Carl Daley
The Dallas Cowboys are still sifting through the 2016 season and preparing for some key personnel decisions on the horizon.
Not much has really been revealed about the Dallas Cowboys offseason plans. The team has been very tight lipped about who they are looking to re-sign and those decisions could come down to the free agent market.
The Cowboys personnel department has done a fantastic job of finding players who can be productive but who are under the radar in terms of their demand in free agency.They should continue that tradition this offseason as they continue to do a terrific job at finding versatile players that can be productive from day one.
What do the Cowboys need to get to the Super Bowl?
Time, that is the answer. Another year in this system will help propel starting quarterback, Dak Prescott to new heights. He will finally get a full offseason to grow and develop with his coaches and teammates and that should do a lot for him as a player and a leader of this offense. Elliott will also benefit from some time with this franchise as he will be able to absorb the in’s and out’s of this offense.
Defensive back Byron Jones will be entering a big year for his development as well so realistically this young team may just need to get a bit older, a bit more experienced. Teams could barely stop the Cowboys offense in 2016 when their two primary playmakers were rookies, imagine what they will do with a little more experience under their belt.
It also would not help to give Dez a complimentary wide receiver who can be an adequate deep threat, or a pass rusher who can consistently be on the field, a defensive back who looks to be a ball hawk, and a young offensive guard who can either back up or start along this talented offensive line.
There are alterations that need to be made to this football team but they are not far off from a Super Bowl run.
