There are some question marks moving forward trying to figure out what the Cowboys need through free agency and the draft. I was looking at the roster today and realized if the popular cuts happen, then we will be down to 36 players under contract for 2012 heading into free agency. We'll have to replace 17 players through FA, and it'll be interesting how we spread the ca room out over those 17 players. Here's what I have: Release: Jon Kitna (void) Kyle Kosier Keith Brooking Terrance Newman Kai Forbath Question Mark: David Buehler - Bailey wasn't nearly as good on kickoffs this year, which is the only reason why I see Buehler coming back. With those cuts, here's the roster breakdown: QB: Romo, McGee (2) RB: Jones, Murray, Tanner (3) FB: Phillips? (0.5) WR: Austin, Bryant, Harris, Radway (4) TE: Witten, Phillips (1.5) OT: Smith, Free (2) OG: Arkin, Nagy (2) OC: Costa, Kowalski (2) DE: Spears, Coleman, Hatcher (3) DT: Ratliff, Lissemore, Brent (3) OLB: Ware, Butler, Albright (3) ILB: Lee, Carter (2) CB: Jenkins, Scandrick (2) S: Sensabaugh, Church, McCray (3) K: Bailey, Buehler (2) P: (0) LS: Ladoucer (1) There are some obvious voids here and I wanted to start a discussion about how the roster will/should shape up with the potential of young guys stepping up, and us not being able to afford luxury players (Buehler) if we have to make a big free agent splash. Needs True FB 3rd WR 3rd TE/H-Back/ST #1 Caliber OG Starting OC Back up OL (x2) Pass rushing DE/OLB (x2) A Bulldozer at NT Nickel LB/ST (x2)*** #1 or #2 CB Nickel CB CB/ST Starting FS P *** This is based on a depth chart with 2 QBs, if 3 QBs needed, replace. Would you replace anything on this list, if so what? When I was putting together mock drafts, I found myself not addressing all the needs of the team and I want this to give a clearer picture at what exactly we need.
