There's little doubt that the Dallas Cowboys need to be "bargain-bin ballers" in the 2014 offseason, working free agency to uncover cheap, undervalued assets whose future production will exceed their cost.
That sounds simple in theory, but it's quite difficult when every other team is trying to do the same thing. Football is a zero-sum game, meaning that for every winner there's a loser.
To become long-term winners, the Cowboys need to emphasize predictive traits that others are overlooking, seeking players who for, whatever reason, figure to see a jump in productivity.
The following slides each propose a bargain-bin free agent whom Dallas should consider signing along with an explanation of why he'll be undervalued. If the Cowboys are going to climb out of their salary-cap nightmare, they'll need to not only sign the right sort of players but do it at the right prices.
