Since all Cowboys fans know that not much is going to change as long as Jerry Jones is in charge I thought I would jump in and play GM just like Jerry does. I won’t pretend that I understand the salary cap or anything that goes along with it. I’m just giving my opinion on some things and of course having some fun. I understand that it’s probably about 99% fantasy, but hey, I can dream right?
So watch your step as you enter my fantasy world…
Jerry Jones decides to be just the owner of the Cowboys and hires Bill Polian to be the Cowboys new General Manager.
Bill Polian decides to keep Jason Garrett as Head Coach and also brings back Tony Sparano to be the Cowboys offensive coordinator. Rob Ryan does not get offered a Head Coaching job and stays on as the Cowboys defensive coordinator. Dave Campo does not get offered a new contract and is finally removed from the coaching staff.
Bill Polian lets the following Cowboys free agents leave…
Bill Polian cuts the following players that are still under contract…
Bill Polian makes it a point to sign these Cowboys free agents…
The team then decides to move Tyron Smith to left tackle and Doug Free to right tackle. It is also decided to move Jay Ratliff to defensive end.
Bill Polian jumps into free agency and makes the following signings…
Cortland Finnegan from Tennessee replaces Terence Newman
Michael Griffin from Tennessee replaces Gerald Sensabaugh
Carl Nicks from New Orleans replaces Kyle Kosier
Paul Soliai from Miami replaces Jay Ratliff at nose tackle
Bill Polian then works out a trade that sends Tony Romo and Felix Jones to Miami for Miami’s 1st Rd. draft pick (8th overall).
On draft day as the Buccaneers are ready to make their selection with the #5 pick the Cowboys work out a trade and give the Buccaneers the 8th pick they received from Miami as well their own 14th pick in the first round. The Cowboys jump ahead of Washington who has the #6 pick and select quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) from Baylor.
