Jerry Jones, Cowboys Preparing to Go All-In on 2019?

The have been more vocal this offseason about their plans to upgrade a roster that took them to the of the . It's a departure from the norm for Jerry and as they don't talk a lot about spending in . On the contrary, they're typically trying to temper expectations as the league approaches its annual season for spending.

Over the weekend, , meeting with reporters at the NFL spoke about how he doesn't have much time to wait for this team to be a Super Bowl winner.

Jones is getting up there in age and there's no telling how much time he has left on this Earth. He's watched several of his counterparts pass away in recent years. In the Fall, both Houston Texans Owner Bob McNair and Seattle Seahawks Owner Paul Allen passed away. Within five weeks of each other. As people age, life becomes a bit more urgent as they watch their contemporaries leave this life. Jerry Jones, even with all that he's accomplished, has never shied from the fact that he wants to bring another Super Bowl to the Dallas Cowboys. Jones has never been satisfied and will never be satisfied.

The Cowboys have one of the better young teams in the NFL and have a core of players that just need a few more pieces to put them over the top. It looks like the Cowboys is getting ready to get those pieces in the upcoming free agency which opens on March 13th.

The most talked about position this offseason has been free and there are several good ones available this offseason, headlined by Earl Thomas and . The Cowboys also need to find some help along the defensive interior to go along with and . They'll have to replace their slot wide receiver as it is expected that will be leaving in free agency and there are several options there for the Cowboys as well in Adam Humphries, , and .

And then comes the draft. The Dallas Cowboys have been excellent in recent years at finding year one contributors to their franchise. In 2016 they found , Dak Prescott, Maliek Collins, , and Anthony Brown to contribute year one. In 2017, it was Chidobe Awuzie, , , and . In 2018, , Connor Williams, , and all made significant contributions to the Dallas Cowboys playoff run. In 2019, there's no reason to expect that and the scouting department won't be able to find several year-one contributors as well.

As I wrote earlier in the offseason, this is the time for the Dallas Cowboys to push all their chips to the table. They've built a strong foundation in Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, their , their dynamic young linebacker duo, , their group, and , that now is the time for the Cowboys to spend big.

“There's no time like the present” should be the theme for the 2019 offseason. After making it to the division round in two of the last three seasons, it's good to see Jones getting a little impatient and ready to make some splashes in free agency. They have the situation to be able to do some shopping as well as get long-term contract extensions done with their guys like DeMarcus Lawrence.

After making the move to acquire Amari Cooper, the Cowboys showed that they are ready to make the necessary moves to supplement their solid drafting to put this team over the top. As March 13th approaches, it sounds like the Cowboys will be players in the market. For them to finally win that elusive sixth Super Bowl, they'll have to be. As we've seen with teams like the Rams, they don't stand pat and hold their ground. They'll be aggressive in trades and in the free agent market.

Time for the Dallas Cowboys to do the same.
