    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - For 40 percent of the players on the Cowboys' active roster, the season finale against the Giants could be the last game they play in a Dallas uniform.

    Once the 2011 season ends, the contracts expire for 21 players, including linebacker Keith Brooking, tight end Martellus Bennett, safety Abram Elam, linebacker Anthony Spencer, fullback Tony Fiammetta, receiver Laurent Robinson, linebacker Bradie James and quarterback Jon Kitna...

    I'd resign Robinson and pass on the rest. Send Newman with them while you're at it.

    My exact thoughts, the media has taken on the personality of the team it is paid to write about...lazy, dumb and unmotivated....

    Does anyone know what the average turnover is per year for this team? I know we usually draft 7 so that is 7 in and 7 out. Then free agents, retirements, etc. I wonder what the average number is.

    Just to take a guess (without seeing the complete list) and say about a third will return.

    I can get with this for the most part. The only one I question is Spencer but like you said depends on the money. If he wants to much let him go.

    Definitely:
    Mat McBriar
    Laurent Robinson
    Tony Fiammetta

    Maybe:
    Derrick Dockery
    Abram Elam
    Montrae Holland
    Anthony Spencer

    Goodbye:
    Alan Ball
    Martellus Bennett
    Keith Brooking
    Jon Kitna
    Daniel Loper
    Sammy Morris
    Frank Walker
    Bradie James
    Kevin Ogletree
    Chauncey Washington
    Clifton Geathers
    Jermey Parnell
    Jesse Holley

    And if somebody's price gets too high, they get knocked down a tier.

    I would keep all of the Maybes except either one of the guards(Holland or Dockery). This team needs depth and competition. Those Maybes are decent players that have proven they can start. Right now you draft some safeties, olinemen, etc and have all those players compete for their jobs. Whoever wins the job starts and the other just create depth in case of an injury.

    The rest can go.

    If that isn't an indictment on the front office i don't know what is. 4 out of 21 players are salvageable. And you can make a case for letting two of those four walk. Unbelievable. And people still defend the front office. A mediocre front office equals a mediocre team.
