The Dallas Cowboys have yet to re-sign any of their own players in free agency, but they got their most coveted free agent in defensive tackle Henry Melton. Does it make up for the loss of defensive end DeMarcus Ware? Maybe not completely, but Melton is younger and certainly a step in the right direction, especially when you consider the low-risk nature of his deal with Dallas.
Outside of a couple other low-profile signings, the Cowboys have been relatively quiet this offseason. They still have some obvious holes on defense, so where do they go from here?
Although the free-agency period is dying down, the Cowboys will most likely sign at least one more semi-big-name player. They have so many issues on defense that bringing in a free agent or two prior to the draft will give them a lot more flexibility with their selections.
Let’s take a look at the rest of the Cowboys’ offseason, starting with the remainder of free agency and moving to the draft.
