The Dallas Cowboys are currently experiencing some uncomfortable times. Fresh off the disappointment of another 8-8 season, changes are already taking place among the coaching staff. Gone are running backs coach Skip Peete and outspoken defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
Are more changes coming? Perhaps, but this is only the beginning of what should be a very interesting offseason for the Cowboys. Jerry Jones will be at the epicenter of every decision that is made as the Cowboys forge ahead to the 2013 season.
So, while the first order of business appears to be the addressing of the coaching staff, bigger decisions loom regarding the roster. Issues concerning depth, free agency, performance and salary, along with coaching decisions, just might make this the busiest offseason for the Jones family.
If the Cowboys are going to make a push and close the gap between mediocrity and becoming elite, then some of these imminent decisions will be crucial. In looking ahead to the makeup of the 2013 roster, it's time for the Cowboys to really make some hard assessments, evaluations and decisions.
It's always fun to start speculating on the comings and goings of the current roster and that's what we will do for every single player on the roster. The criteria for each player is either to keep, trade or cut.
