The Dallas Cowboys have had plenty of talented rosters over the past few years but they continued to fall short when it mattered. That was the case again in 2023, as the Cowboys went home in the Wild Card round after falling 48-32 to the Green Bay Packers at AT&T Stadium.

Jerry Jones then told the fanbase the organization would be "all-in" this offseason but that has been far from the truth.

Departures from the Lone Star state included Tony Pollard, Tyron Smith, Tyler Biadasz, and Dorance Armstrong.

Meanwhile, the only meaningful addition made was linebacker Eric Kendricks.

Jones spoke with the media on Tuesday in a pre-draft press conference and talked about the Cowboys offseason.

Cowboys Rumors: Jerry Jones Speaks on Dallas' Offseason

Many fans were under the assumption that the Cowboys would have been aggressive in free agency or given out extensions to either CeeDee Lamb, Micah Parsons, or Dak Prescott. But since nothing like that happened, Cowboy fans have grown frustrated.

Jones addressed it in the presser on April 23. He said, "Who in the world would think that we’re not working on it? I work on it; it pops open at two in the morning sometimes. Your actual question is: why don’t you have something done and negotiated and put in the drawer? Well, we’d like to see some more leaves fall. We’d like to see some more action. It’s called options."

He added, "To say that you’re not working on it is not the right answer. What they differ with is your style. It’s on your mind; it’d be madness not to know that the contracts are ahead. I want to see a few more cards play, candidly. If you’ve got trouble with when the timing is around here, it’s because I’m not ready to go."

The 81-year-old seemed a bit frustrated by the comments made on the Cowboys lack of moves and he voiced it.

Jones has to understand that fans are going to become antsy and annoyed when their team isn't making moves to improve. Especially after they were told by management that the organization would be aggressive in adding talent.

When your biggest signing is a 32-year-old linebacker in a make-or-break offseason, you have a right to be questioned.
