The 2024 NFL Draft was good for the Dallas Cowboys, who were able to find their new starting left tackle in Tyler Guyton with their first pick. They even traded down before landing Guyton and wound up with Cooper Beebe at No. 73. A guard at Kansas State, Beebe is expected to try his hand at center.

Dallas also brought in pass-rusher Marshawn Kneeland and linebacker Marist Liufau. In all, it was a good haul but they're far from done. They know this as well with Jerry Jones teasing more roster moves — beyond re-signing Ezekiel Elliott, of course.

Here, we look at three free agents who the Cowboys can still add as they prepare for the 2024 season.

Cooper Beebe has faith that he can hold down the job as the starting center and there's no reason not to give him the shot. Having said that, there's no reason not to try and find some insurance as well.

Mason Cole might not be a household name but he's a six-year veteran who has been a starter in 73 of the 94 games he's appeared in. A former third-round pick from Michigan, he was with the Arizona Cardinals for three years before playing for the Minnesota Vikings (and head coach Mike Zimmer) in 2021. Over the past two seasons, he started all 34 games for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He wasn't re-signed and the Steelers are going with Zach Frazier, a rookie from West Virginia.

Dallas currently has just Brock Hoffman behind Beebe, so adding a player with so much starting experience feels like a move they should make. He might not be a superstar but he's not a liability either, which is sometimes all you need in your backup.
