2. Extending Terence Steele

Terence Steele was a fan favorite who went from an undrafted prospect out of Texas Tech to a stud at right tackle. He was good enough to push La'el Collins out of town and developed into one of the best in the game last year.

Then, he suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Week 14 which ended his campaign early. Dallas stayed committed to Steele, even extending him in the offseason by way of a five-year $86 million deal.

At the time, it was seen as a questionable move since Steele hadn't played on his repaired knee. Dallas even had a cautionary tale since they did the same thing with Michael Gallup, who is now vastly overpaid for what he brings to the table.

Sadly, the same has been true of Steele. He surrendered eight pressures in the loss to the 49ers and eight to the Eagles. He was usually the one beat when Dak Prescott was sacked, including on the final drive after they moved into the red zone.

Perhaps Steele rebounds but we said the same thing about Gallup and it's only gotten worse.
