In January, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declared that the organization was committed to going “all in” for the 2024 season. However, a shift toward a more economical approach to team building was evident by March. Limited free agency activity has drawn scrutiny, particularly given the impending contractual negotiations of key players like Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, and Micah Parsons.

The pressure on current head coach Mike McCarthy is palpable as he navigates the final year of his contract. Anything short of a Super Bowl appearance may spell the end of his tenure. Additionally, quarterback Dak Prescott faces legal issues, including a civil lawsuit and criminal report, adding further complexity to the team’s dynamics.
