If the Cowboys cut the following guys in the offseason would you be surprised: Doug Free Jay Ratliff Gerald Sensabaugh I don't think anybody would shed any tears over any of those three guys. The #1 reason why I don't have a lot of faith in the Cowboys improving under Jerry Jones is that the front office identified all three of those guys worthy of contract extensions in 2011 (ie last year)!!!! Think about it -- just last year the team performed their internal analysis on these guys, determined they were worth more than the alternatives, and then shelled out pretty good sized signing bonuses to each. Beyond that, the thing that has been bothering me for a while is how frigging hard Jones went after Nnamdi in 2011 offseason. Remember the supposed fist pumping when they thought they had signed him? What a disaster that would have been had he come to Dallas. My point on Nnamdi is that the Cowboys tried the best to sign him despite all the warning signs of signing ~30 year old big time FA contracts. On the positive side, I think they've done a pretty decent job with the draft. The problem is they've done a TERRIBLE job of evaluating their own free agents as well as unrestricted free agents. I even look at the Carr signing in the same vein. Good player, however, Carr is not a $10m/corner. It's like hitting a finishing nail with a sledge hammer -- the spend on Carr seemed so disproportionate to the need considering they obviously had plans to go after Mo in the draft.
