Is Everson Griffen The Final Piece To A Cowboys Super Bowl Team?

Though they were crowned kings of the , the may not be done improving their roster this .

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox detailed one move each contender should still make this offseason, saying that former Vikings should be in the Cowboys' plans.
