Cowboys Promise Addition at Key Position After Free Agency Inactivity

The Dallas Cowboys plan to bring in more talent at a key position of need.

The Dallas Cowboys have confusingly decided to stand pat during free agency as their rivals around the NFL bolstered their rosters. Not only did the Cowboys fail to bring in any key free agents, but they also lost key starters. One of the areas that took a hit in the offseason is the running back rotation.

Despite numerous reports over the last few months about the running game being a top priority for Dallas in the offseason, the Cowboys lost their best rusher, as well as two key starters in their offensive line. The already mediocre running back room got even worse with the departure of Tony Pollard.

The Cowboys brought back Rico Dowdle on a one-year deal. Deuce Vaughn and Malik Davis are returning to add depth, but that rotation is nowhere near sufficient for a Super Bowl run.

Fortunately for Cowboys fans, head coach Mike McCarthy is aware of this situation. At least that makes one of them among the decisionmakers.

Speaking to reporters, McCarthy said they are going to bring in more help in the running back department. He didn't specify whether that is coming via free agency, trade, or the NFL Draft.

There are still available free agents like Ezekiel Elliott, Kareem Hunt, J.K. Dobbins, or Clyde Edwards-Helaire on the market. Signing one of these names would not save the Cowboys' disastrous offseason, but it would at least somewhat fill one glaring hole on the team.
