Just like with Anthony Spencer, Jerry Jones and company need to decide if they want to continue signing paychecks for Felix Jones, considering the former first-round draft pick recorded his worst statistical season in the NFL.
Pair that with a history of injuries in his career and this might be the year Jones is shown the door at Valley Ranch.
If the Cowboys are looking for an option outside of Jones for the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, names like Rashard Mendenhall and Danny Woodhead come to mind.
Mendenhall is returning from an ACL injury, but he's an experienced rusher who could be a nice change of pace from DeMarco Murray. Woodhead has been nothing but change of pace during his NFL career and often provided a nice little spark for the Patriots during his time with the team.
Unlike safety or outside linebacker, where Dallas could turn to the draft instead of free agency, running back is probably a position the team would heavily prefer to fill before the draft. A veteran presence behind him would provide Murray stability and someone to learn from in his third NFL season.
