Time is running out on Jerry Jones to keep his promise to Cowboys fans of going all-in this offseason.

In fact, it has been quite the opposite. The Cowboys not only just signed one free agent, but they also lost key starters, leaving them short-handed on multiple fronts. There doesn't seem to be much of an urgency to restructure contracts to create more cap space to be active on the market, either.

The Cowboys currently have about $5 million in cap space to fill voids in their offensive line and running back. They will need to create more obviously but the free agent market is getting weaker by the day.

However, there are still a few names available that the Cowboys can target if Jerry Jones indeed means business. Let's take a look.

Donovan Smith, OT

Perhaps the most pressing need for Dallas is an offensive tackle as the team still hasn't replaced their star offensive lineman Tyron Smith. The best way to fill the void of a veteran tackle? Sign a two-time Super Bowl winner replacement.

Donovan Smith was tasked with protecting Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City last season after doing the same for Tom Brady in Tampa Bay earlier in his career. He did an admirable job in both destinations.

There is a chance the 30-year-old left tackle returns to the Chiefs for a shot at a three-peat, but the Cowboys should make him a priority regardless as he remains one of the more affordable, experienced, and competent offensive linemen left on the market.
