The Dallas Cowboys haven't been major players in free agency, but they've at least gotten into the act with the additions of Justin Durant and Will Allen. Questionable cap management has left the Cowboys in quite a bind and so has the handy work of John Mara.
It was going to be extremely difficult to replicate the splash of last year's free-agency binge, but not being able to address many holes still leaves this franchise in the middle of the pack. Championships aren't won on paper, but the pressure for Dallas to strike it rich in the draft has hit epic levels.
On somewhat of a brighter note, the Cowboys roster wasn't completely decimated by big-name departures, but rather by players who just failed to live up to expectations. Some of those departures were overdue and some will leave the Cowboys in a position of looking to find adequate depth.
The question that remains is whether some of those departed players will actually be missed. Again, it's not as if DeMarcus Ware, Sean Lee or Dez Bryant spurned the franchise, but sometimes it's the ancillary players who can leave a big void.
Let's look at some of those players whom the Cowboys just might miss when the season is well under way.
