    The Dallas Cowboys have a huge offseason on the horizon, as the team looks to build on a banner year for the new era of Cowboys under head coach Jason Garrett.

    The team was one questionable call against Green Bay from playing in the NFC Championship Game against a team it had already beaten once this year, and is poised for another big year in 2015 if they can keep most of the band together and continue to upgrade defensively.

    Cowboys executive vice president and chief operating officer Stephen Jones said in an interview with Sirius Radio that the Cowboys will take an "efficient" approach to free agency and likely stay away from the big names like defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

    “I don’t know if active is a good word,” Jones said. “I think active can get you in trouble in free agency. I think you have to be efficient and look for your values, and you can do good things."

    Jones then went on to reference the team's signing of Jeremy Mincey last year for two years at $4.5 million before he went on to post a really solid year for the Cowboys as an under-the-radar addition.

    If the Cowboys can make a couple of more moves like that, plus stockpile defensive talent in upcoming draft, they could be on the fast track to something big.
