Cowboys will be active in free agency
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas Ė Contrary to popular opinion, the Cowboys do not act like the New York Yankees when it comes to unrestricted free agency.
In the last two years they have signed two unrestricted free agents: Kenyon Coleman and Abram Elam. They signed three players in 2009 but none in 2008.
The Cowboys are currently $12.6 million under the cap and could create enough room by releasing players or restructuring contracts to have as much as $20-25 million in space.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones canít guarantee the Cowboys will be able to sign players when the market opens March 13, but he does predict they will be a player.
