    A big hat tip to Calvin Watkins over at ESPN Dallas for updating us on the Dallas Cowboys offseason schedule through the draft. I'll highlight the dates here plus give my own spin.

    Feb 17: Franchise Tagging begins. Probably not a big deal for Dallas this year, Anthony Spencer will not be tagged again and it's doubtful Jason Hatcher would be tagged. The Cowboys brass has already said they will not be tagging anyone this year.

    Feb 19 - 25: The combine! The Underwear Olympics begin, all the players will be put through on-field and off-field tests.
