Cowboys have been busy with some decent FA signings. Maybe not the big splashy types, but at least good depth/rotational players, maybe even a little more. Always need depth on the D-line to stay fresh. At least they are trying to target a weak spot.


I love the moves Dallas has made today. Adding Basham and Urban to our DL make for very solid additions. Now if we can use our premium picks to address the secondary and linebackers i will be really ecstatic about this upcoming season.
