How many free agents are on the Cowboys roster?

Today Rabblerousr made his updated 53 man roster prediction.  I've been wanting to highlight just how good the Boys have been at drafting so borrowing his predicted roster I want to make the following point:  notice the players in CAPS? 

These are past free agent pickups projected to still be on our roster at season start.  Every other player is either an original DC draft pick or an undrafted free agent pickup:


53 players, 46 original DC draft picks/undrafted free agents, 7 free agents

Of the 7 free agents we had Elam and McBriar very early on in their careers. Here is the full roster as Rablerousr posted today:

QB (3): Tony Romo, JON KITNA, Stephen McGee

RB (3): Felix Jones, DeMarco Murray, Phillip Tanner

FB (1): Shaun Chapas

WR (5): Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Kevin Ogletree, Dwayne Harris, Jesse Holley

TE: (3) Jason Witten, Martellus Bennett, John Phillips

OL (9): Doug Free, David Arkin, Andre Gurode, KYLE KOSIER, Tyron Smith, Jermey Parnell, Phil Costa, Bill Nagy, Sam Young

DL (6): Marcus Spears, Jay Ratliff, Jason Hatcher, KENYON COLEMAN, Josh Brent, Sean Lissemore

OLB (4): DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer, Victor Butler, Alex Albright

ILB (5): Bradie James, Sean Lee, KEITH BROOKING, Kenwin Cummings, Orie Lemon

CB (6): Terence Newman, Mike Jenkins, Orlando Scandrick, Bryan McCann, Alan Ball, Josh Thomas

S (4): ABE ELAM, GERALD SENSABAUGH, Barry Church, Danny McCray, Andrew Sendejo

ST (3): MAT MCBRIAR, L.P. Ladoucer, Dan Bailey

It is great seeing our roster so full of talent we are developing on our own. 

So bashers - please don't go running your mouth about how much you hate management.  Or at least give something real to back it up.  The truth is we're drafting and developing players as well as any franchise in the league right now.  We also currently don't have a single bad contract on the roster.  This last year I think management did as good a job as ever and the future for Cowboys fans looks very bright.
