Cowboys 2012 Free Agency: "Battle Is Just Beginning" Between Jerry Jones And The NFL

In one amazing move, Roger Goodell and the NFL have managed to do something that most considered impossible: Unite the Dallas Cowboys fan base in its support of Owner/GM Jerry Jones.

As the rumors and reports fly about concerning free agency, ESPN writers Adam Schefter and John Clayton both have stated that the battle is just beginning between the Cowboys and the owners in the NFL who decided to retroactively disapprove the Miles Austin contract. In an appearance on the Mike and Mike show, quoted in the Dallas Morning News, Clayton acknowledged that the Cowboys, along with the Redskins, are now facing most of the other NFL owners in a fight over how those teams tried to improve themselves during the 2010 season.

"It's going to be pretty much 28 owners going against them. How they fight it is going to be interesting."

Today, the Cowboys seem to mainly be fighting by going hard after cornerback Brandon Carr, and quarterback Kyle Orton is reported to be visiting Dallas as well. Stay tuned here for all the latest updates, and consider this a new thread for free agency comments.
