When the news broke that the NFL was going to have an uncapped season, my biggest fear was Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder going George Steinbrenner on the NFL and buying themselves a spot in the Super Bowl.

Much to my surprise, neither has seemed even remotely interested in this year’s free agency market.

Is Jones too busy promoting boxing to worry about football?

Has Snyder finally stepped out of the picture to let Mike Shanahan run the team? 

Granted, this year’s free agency market was not really riddled with big names other than maybe Julius Peppers, but one would think that guys who normally love writing the huge checks for top-level free agents would at least make a splash in an uncapped season.

Not only have they not made a splash, they haven’t even dipped their rich old toes into the water.

Free agency isn’t over yet, but as far as talent, there’s not much left on the market.

Will Snyder try to lure in Donovan McNabb?

Will Jones bring T.O. back to the Big D?

Do either of them even know that free agency has begun?

I guess only time will tell.

Where can I comment?
