Dallas Cowboys' Top Remaining Offseason Priorities

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones promised an uncomfortable offseason following his team's season-ending loss to the Washington Redskins.

While there have been numerous changes to the defensive coaching staff, we can assume that part of that discomfort can be attributed to the Cowboys' lack of salary cap space. This problem has marginalized free-agent activity and still threatens the 2013 NFL draft.

It's pretty clear that while drafting poorly, as Dallas has in the recent past, you can't build a contender in March by spending of millions of dollars in free agency. Because of this fact, the Cowboys are not hurting because they haven't spent money on veterans that get overpaid to go to another team.

But because the Cowboys have not been highly active in the free-agent market in 2013, the pressure now falls on the upcoming draft in April.

The biggest offseason priority for Dallas is to land at least three immediate contributors, or more, with only six selections in the draft. But the players they choose have to help fix the following five issues that have kept the Cowboys in a state of mediocrity for the past two seasons—and 2010 was nothing to hang your hat on either.
