1. Cowboys. By adding receiver Terrell Owens and kicker Mike Vanderjagt to a 9-7 team, the Cowboys virtually assured themselves of another winning record. But that's not all they did.
Coach Bill Parcells continued to make additions to his preferred 3-4 defense. They signed linebacker Akin Ayodele from Jacksonville and made linebacker Bobby Carpenter their No. 1 draft pick.
They added tight end Ryan Hannam from Seattle and made tight end Anthony Fasano their No. 2 draft pick.
Although losing veteran Larry Allen to San Francisco can't help an offensive line that often struggles to protect statuesque Drew Bledsoe, the addition of Jason Fabini and Kyle Kosier plus the return to health of Flozell Adams are plusses.
The Cowboys are expected to line up tight end Jason Witten and Fasano together, opening up things even more for Owens and the best deep threat in the game, Terry Glenn.
Even our cast-offs help another team make the list.
