Dallas Cowboys Can Be Major Players In NFL Free Agency, Von Miller Available

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is hellbent on getting to another Super Bowl, and he might spend a lot of money in free agency to make it happen next year, according to ESPN.

As of right now, the Dallas Cowboys have only $13.7 million in salary cap space, which seems like a lot, but it actually has them ranked in the bottom third when compared to all NFL teams.

Anyone that has followed the NFL for the past few years knows that general managers in the league are smart enough to make a couple of moves and tremendous increase that amount.

There are already talks that Dallas Cowboys left offensive tackle Tyron Smith could be restructuring his contract so that the team can clear approximately $7 million in salary cap space.

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford just signed his new contract last season, but if he were to rework the deal, then the team can clear up another $4.6 million off the cap.

Many have been waiting for Dallas Cowboys corner back Brandon Carr to be dropped by the team, but there are talks that he is willing to sign a new contract to give the team cap space.

Just with those three deals being redone, the Dallas Cowboys can have up to $33.7 million in salary cap space, which is more than enough to bring in some major help in free agency.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller would easily provide the pass rushing that the Dallas Cowboys desperately needs, especially if DeMarcus Lawrence continues to play like he has.

Carolina Panthers corner back Josh Norman is arguably the best lock down defender in the NFL, so he would easily fill a need for the Dallas Cowboys by replacing Brandon Carr himself.

New York Jets defensive end Muhammed Wilkerson can also provide a pass rush and could be a great option for the Dallas Cowboys if Greg Hardy leaves and Randy Gregory stalls.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffries could team up with Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and dominate opposing NFL defenses, especially with a healthy Tony Romo.

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a gruesome hand injury, but he proved to NFL coaches and executives that he can still be quite disruptive as a pass rusher.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry can provide the Dallas Cowboys with their best player at that position since the days of Darren Woodson. He and Byron Jones could mesh well.

Denver Broncos defensive tackle Malik Jackson is great at penetrating the offensive line, something that Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli needs for his zone scheme.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was the second best rusher in the NFL this season, and the Dallas Cowboys need someone to help Darren McFadden carry the load.

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin is one of the most versatile players in the NFL, and he can provide the help that Sean Lee and Rolando McClain have needed on the defense.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford didn’t exactly impress last season, so he could be finding a new home in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys desperately need a new backup.

Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is set to be replaced by younger and cheaper players, so he could help the Dallas Cowboys become a Super Bowl contender next season.

Regardless of what Jerry Jones says about the Dallas Cowboys needing to be frugal in free agency, the longtime Dallas Cowboys owner knows that the window of opportunity for another Super Bowl is closing.
