Despite flaming out early in the playoffs once again, the Dallas Cowboys have a Super Bowl-worthy roster with talent stacked up and down every position. Cowboys fans would be happy to see them bring back the same team as last year but this will not be possible. Dallas simply has too many impending free agents and too little financial flexibility.
So, tough decisions will need to be made. There will be some departures that will hurt and some not as much. Here are a few Cowboys who the fans shouldn't mind them leaving.
1. Tyler Biadasz, C
Biadasz had a solid 2023 campaign. According to Pro Football Focus, he had the best season of his four-year career. He was the 13th-best overall PFF grade among qualified centers.
Losing a decent starter in the offensive line would certainly hurt. Considering that Tyron Smith is also an unrestricted free agent who could leave, losing two would hurt even more. But, the Cowboys are in a delicate salary cap situation and might need to prioritize their more irreplaceable players.
As good as Biadasz has been, he is replaceable. Tyron Smith, on the other hand, is likely less replaceable. If Dallas can only re-sign one of them due to financial concerns, it should be Smith.
This obviously depends on what kind of market Biadasz will have in free agency. If he tests the market and gets a lucrative multi-year deal, it behooves the Cowboys to let him walk and replace him with the likes of Brock Hoffman, T.J. Bass, or a prospect they select in the Draft.
