$50 Million

That is the number the Dallas Cowboys can arm themselves with heading into free agency. No, it is not semantics or any other ruse but a real number the Cowboys can get to if they wish. They do have to pay their rookie draft class but the number is still very much attainable with just a few moves.

The team currently sits at $18.9 million in space so you can see that they aren’t just going to pay a random person out there. The team will still be careful about how much they will pay but I think they have a better understanding of who to pay after last year’s free agency whiff.

If the team doesn’t come to terms with any high-priced free agents I can already hear the front office reminding everyone about how teams get into trouble by paying great money to good players. I would counter with the ” what good is cap space if you don’t use it” phrase.

The team has momentum heading into the free agency period with better options than most of the other teams. I hope the front office can continue their offseason dominance by taking advantage of other teams’ misfortunes regarding the salary cap.

The Dallas Cowboys are known as America’s Team and it would be a nice change of pace for this team to start acting like it and use their spotlight to bring in hired guns. Doing so would require the team to take a dive into free agency and finally cash in on all of their cap flexibility promises.

I don’t want any more financially responsible signings by bringing in players who are cheap because they are past their prime. The time has come for the team to make a real impact during free agency.
