This offseason, the Dallas Cowboys did well to not only add talent to their roster in the form of Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore, but they kept the majority of their big-name free agents as well. While it's true Dalton Schultz headed to the Houston Texans, they were able to keep Tony Pollard, Donovan Wilson, Leighton Vander Esch, Dante Fowler and Johnathan Hankins.

Looking ahead to the 2024 offseason, there will again be several notable names hitting the open market — and with some of the moves made this year, it might be hard to afford them all. That's one of the reasons why these five players could be done with the franchise after the 2023 campaign.

5. Cowboys DT Neville Gallimore

Dallas did so well in the 2020 NFL Draft that fans should have petitioned to put Jerry Jones on his yacht for every draft. That was the year they added CeeDee Lamb, Trevon Diggs, and Tyler Biadasz — who have all become full-time starters. They also picked up Neville Gallimore in the third round and he's been a spot starter in his career.

In three seasons, Gallimore has 35 appearances and 14 starts for Dallas. He's also coming off his best campaign as a pro with 33 tackles and a sack in a rotational role. Heading into 2023, that role could be limited some.

The Cowboys drafted Mazi Smith in the first round and he will handle the 1-tech spot along with Johnathan Hankins. As for the 3-tech, Osa Odighuzuwa will continue to start there and while Gallimore could back him up, Chauncey Golston is also expected to get more time in this role due to the overcrowding on the edge.

Also big enough to play the 3-tech is rookie Viliami Fehoko. With all that being the case, Dallas could be grooming these players to take over as Gallimore looks for a new home in 2024.
