A Recap of the Dallas Cowboys’ Offseason

They’ve got a rookie tandem located in the backfield, and a defence line full of so-called orphans, but the 2016 Dallas Cowboys managed to go 13 – 3 at the end of the day, and won the NFC East totally.

A few months down the line and a lot of the same faces are still on the roster. The usual suspects, in the form of Jason Witten, Sean Lee, and Dez Bryant are there to be seen. But, as the offseason has come and gone, the organisation has managed to see its share of movement as the team prepares to try to repeat the success of 2016 in this year’s games.

This article recaps the roster moves which have taken place over the last few months.

Which Players Remained in Dallas?

There is a lengthy list of possible free agents heading into the Cowboys’ offseason. Here are the players who have decided to stick around, and who punters that enjoy a spot of NZ betting have set their hopes on:
