During the offseason, the Dallas Cowboys made a few waves by trading up to draft former LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne in the first round with the sixth pick. Back in March, the Cowboys signed at least six free agents and released a number of players who played a role in the Cowboys' success.
Dallas also did a lot to address its issues in the secondary, something that was a serious problem for the team in 2011. Team owner Jerry Jones attempted to improve the team's less-than-stellar offensive line by signing no less than six offensive linemen, proving that Jones wanted postseason success, and he wanted it now.
But what have these signings and picks done for Dallas so far this season? The Cowboys are an average 8-7 with a chance to make the playoffs, a position the team was in last season as well.
Can Jones honestly say that his offseason signings have given the team the type of improvements he looked for? Well, that's what I'm here for, to prognosticate and judge everything the Cowboys do.
As the Cowboys prepare for their showdown with the Washington Redskins on Sunday night, let's take a look at each free agent and draft pick currently on the roster who has failed to live up to what the Cowboys expected of them.
