The Dallas Cowboys entered the 2011 season in a rebuilding process. Jason Garrett was finally fully entrenched as the head coach at the beginning of the offseason. Garrett then proceed to cut Andre Gurode, Leonard Davis, Marion Barber and Roy Williams—giving way to younger players.
This offseason, many other veterans are likely to leave Dallas as well. Bradie James and Keith Brooking are free agents, and Terence Newman is likely to be released.
The Cowboys still have a core of veteran players on offense with Tony Romo and Jason Witten and on defense with DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff. The rest of the roster has been overhauled. With the exception of the 2009 draft, the Cowboys have done an excellent job in the draft.
