As stated earlier, the decision-making by Jerry Jones has been horrible for the franchise. He has continuously let go of good players and has overpaid many players. The best example of it is Amari Cooper. He was the WR1 for the Cowboys last season. Still, Amari Cooper makes his way to the Browns this year.

Their salary cap issues seemingly originated when they slightly overpaid Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot. Both of them are key players for the Cowboys, but people around the league knew that they overpaid them. As a result, the Cowboys are now facing issues in paying other players.
