It is finally over. The NFL is open for business. And while the last four and a half months have been agonizing for the hard core fans like me, what is coming is going to help make up for lost time very quickly.
We are about to see free agency and trades happening at a pace that has never been seen before. It is going to be exciting. But I hope all of the Cowboys fans out there have realistic expectations for what is about to transpire.
The Cowboys won't be signing the big name guys in free agency. They don't have the money to do it. The focus has to be on getting Doug Free signed and then filling out the roster as quickly as possible while managing a bad salary cap situation.
It is highly unlikely that Roy Williams will be cut or traded. It is very likely that Marc Colombo and Marion Barber will be cut.
But the good news is that we are finally going to get answers on all of the roster decisions that have been debated for months. And the answers are going to be here in a matter of days and maybe even hours in some cases.
Things are about to get very exciting. It is about time. I can't wait to get down to San Antonio to see the 2011 Dallas Cowboys get back to work!
