Jerry Jones believes the Cowboys are an improved football team after coming to agreements with a whopping seven free agents since the league year began on March 13, but he’s not ruling out the possibility that they could do more.
In the first week of free agency, Dallas addressed the interior of the offensive line and the secondary--probably the two most glaring needs after the 2011 season--with the signings of cornerback Brandon Carr, safety Brodney Pool, and guards Mackenzy Bernadeau and Nate Livings.
"We pointed to those areas and thought they needed improvement and had handicapped us last year," Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. "And so, if we can be better there, then we could be better. And I feel we're a better football team after what we've done in free agency."
It’s already thought that, as a result of their free agent haul, Dallas could approach next month’s NFL Draft with a “best player available” strategy rather than targeting a specific position, but Jones still isn’t sure the team is done in free agency--at least, he won’t dismiss the idea.
"We have the room and we can," Jones said of targeting additional free agents. "So I wouldn't close the door."
