Despite being labeled as America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys sure don't feel like it this offseason. Cowboys fans are experiencing one of the more disappointing offseasons in a long time as key players departed for fresh starts while Jerry Jones & Co. have done little to replace any roster vacancies.

So much for going all in, right?

While there's still plenty of time for the Cowboys to turn their offseason around, the damage might already be done. Not only did the team's lazy approach to the offseason cost them several key players, but it might also impact their ability to compete for the NFC East crown next season.

Cowboys News: NFC East Odds Fall During Underwhelming Offseason

When the 2024 NFC East odds opened following Super Bowl 58, the Cowboys were +110 favorites to win the division on FanDuel Sportsbook. However, their lackluster offseason performance has resulted in their now being +120 co-favorites with the Philadelphia Eagles.

It shouldn't be surprising to anyone that the Cowboys are no longer the clear-cut NFC East favorites.

While Jerry Jones sat on his hands throughout the last month, Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman has done a lot to improve his roster. The Eagles have been major players throughout free agency, bringing in the likes of Saquon Barkley, Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Bryce Huff, Devin White, and more.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys' new faces consist of Eric Kendricks and Royce Freeman. That's it.

The Eagles also haven't been afraid to pay their best players. DeVonta Smith, Landon Dickerson, Jake Elliott, and Jordan Mailata also received multi-year extensions sometime since March 11. The same can't be said for the Cowboys, who've left Dak Prescott, Micah Parsons, and CeeDee Lamb's future in the air as the trio remains seeking long-term contracts.

Time will tell if the Cowboys can inject some life into their offseason to be able to compete with the Eagles next season. Each of the four NFC East teams has won the division at least once since 2011 with Dallas leading the way with five titles during that stretch.

Even though their divisional odds have taken a hit, the Cowboys' championship outlook is still promising. Mike McCarthy's team currently owns the seven-best odds (+1500) to win Super Bowl LIX on FanDuel Sportsbook, putting them slightly ahead of the Eagles (+1600, T-8th).
