The Dallas Cowboys are in quite a predicament because, although they clearly need a lot of roster help, they don't have very much salary cap space at the moment. Further, this 2014 free-agency period is a crucial one for Dallas because they need to find bargains.
The 'Boys need to be seeking players whose perceived value is less than their actual worth. Without the ability to bring in a high-priced free-agent stud, the Cowboys need to look for value on players with a lot of upside who won't cost much.
