Dallas has struggled to live up to expectations placed on them by fans and experts over the last few seasons, but the team made some significant improvements this NFL off-season and that could have the Cowboys finally playing some great football.
The biggest moves were made in the secondary as the front office signed corner Brandon Carr from Kansas City. Dallas then made a few deals and traded up to acquire corner Morris Claiborne from LSU. Both players will make this unit a strength entering the upcoming football season and allow defensive coordinator Bob Ryan to blitz even more in 2012.
Last year's top pick Tyron Smith played well at right tackle and now the team will move him to the left side in hopes of giving quarterback Tony Romo some better protection from his blind side. This move also allows the team to juggle other players and fit them into spots that best fit their talent levels.
The offense enters the year with more health questions than talent concerns, but Romo has a good group of receivers and the back-field has DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones--both players are dynamic and can break a big play at any time.
The biggest news for Cowboys fans was the lack of moves by last year's Super Bowl Champs as the NY Giants have several questions entering the 2012-13 NFL season. Dallas has made the best moves in the division this off-season, but Philadelphia is not far behind. Dallas will enter the year as a co-favorite in the division, but the Cowboys need to start playing like a great team or risk suffering through another mediocre season.
