The Cowboys adventurous offseason so far

Wow, so much has happened to the Dallas Cowboys within these few weeks of mayhem. With some good and bad deals happening both inside and out, here is all that's been going down recently within the Cowboys' facilities since February.

Offensive Coordinator 2.0

With being shipped to Los Angeles, a new and improved coordinator is here to take over.

Brian Schottenheimer was named to the position of Offensive Coordinator on February 4th.

Schottenheimer worked with between 2018 and 2020 before moving to the before the .

Now he is back at it again and is ready to help lead this to some wins.

The Three Musketeers

On February 8th, the Dallas Cowboys decided to go above and beyond and sign three players to the team. These players were , Isaac Alarcon, and Seth Green for future/reserve contracts.

Each player was picked up last year through or through other teams.

This signing just made sure that these three players don't get picked up by anyone else and that they stay in Dallas.

Here's the kicker

After Brett Maher had the worst performance anyone had ever seen against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the , the Cowboys would end up cutting him from the team in late January.

After this, the Cowboys would go on to sign Kicker .

Vizcaino is an interesting player. He's only played in 10 games yet he's been around since 2020.

He is 11/12 on field goals made in his career and is waiting for his big break with the Cowboys. It is uncertain if he will start or not for the Cowboys but expect more news soon.

Tag, you're it

Running Back Tony Pollard has been franchise tagged, and will be sticking with the Dallas Cowboys for a while.

This news came as a surprise (somewhat) to fans as it was unsure who the Cowboys would place their tag on.

This all occurred on March 6th, and now fans get to await another exciting season with the young .

trading with the colts

On March 14th the Cowboys made a deal with the before the upcoming .

This worked out very well for the Cowboys through the eyes of many fans, as Dallas traded a 5th-round draft pick in exchange for Corner Back Stephon Gilmore.

Gilmore is a veteran player that has been in the NFL since 2012.

He has played in 148 games and has had 427 total tackles in his career. He also has had 29 interceptions, so just from these stats we can obviously see that Gilmore is an elite player.

While his age is catching up to him a bit, the Cowboys should be able to get some good talent out of him this year and so forth.

This deal was one of the best I've seen in a while for the Cowboys. I am super excited to have Gilmore on the team.

So long partner

Running Back Ezekiel Elliott was released on March 15th, and thrown into the free agency pile.

It was sad to see the great running back go, but many fans think it's for the better. Elliott is getting older, and his talent is starting to fade. I wish him luck wherever he lands and hope for the best because he played his heart out while in Dallas.

So long Zeke, so long.

Smart re-signing moves

On March 16th and 17th, the Dallas Cowboys re-signed both and .

Goodwin received a one-year contract and Rush obtained a two-year contract. This would be another great move by the Cowboys, for each one of these re-signings is critical.

The Cowboys now have the best in the league, and a very talented cornerback that has much potential and skill to show while in Dallas.

Trading with your neighbor

The Dallas Cowboys staff didn't have to go too far to find their next trade deal.

On March 19th the traded Wide Receiver Brandin Cooks to the Cowboys for a 5th-round pick in the 2023 and a 6th-round pick in the 2024 draft.

This was another great deal for the Cowboys, as the position was a large flaw for the team last season.

A new running back

That's right, the Cowboys signed a new running back to replace Elliott.

Running Back Ronald Jones will be with the team and has a 1-year contract that was signed on March 21st.

This is another great acquisition for the team. While is fast, Jones can be the big guy who pushes his way through on goal line stands.

The bad news

The only problem I and many other fans have at the moment is the fact that Tight End Dalton Schultz has moved on from the Cowboys and will be suiting up for the Houston Texans next season.

Tight End Dalton Shultz

It's really sad to see this skilled player go, as he was always a good player you could count on.

The only person to blame for this is Schultz's agent, who gave up a 3-year contract for 36 million dollars with Dallas last year, only to end up with a in 2022 and a 1-year contract for 9 million dollars with Houston for 2023.

Very poor management skills by his agent.

Overall, it has been a very good for the Dallas Cowboys. Apart from the news on Schultz, I and many fans are very happy with how this all turned out.

Dallas seems to be getting stacked each and every week with stronger players to help the team win this season.
