Overview of the latest Dallas Cowboys headlines for your reading pleasure.

Dallas Likely To Get Three Seventh Round Compensatory Picks - Blogging The Boys
It appears that Dallas might have three additional compensatory picks at the end of the draft, bringing their total to 11 picks. In 2013, the Cowboys lost more unrestricted free agents than they signed, so they'll likely be awarded compensatory picks for John Phillips, Victor Butler, and Mike Jenkins. With up to eight picks in rounds 4-7, the third day of the draft could be highly interesting for Cowboys fans this year.

A look at the Cowboys bargains - Todd Archer, ESPN Dallas
The Cowboys get a lot of grief for their management of the salary cap. And because many fans and observers compulsively obsess over anything even remotely negative about the Cowboys, like some of the more questionable contracts they have signed in the past, we hardly ever hear about some of the better contracts the Cowboys have signed. Todd Archer does just that as he runs through a ranking of the 10 biggest bargains the Cowboys currently have.

Romo Rehab Progressing - Mike Fisher, CBS DFW
Mike Fisher writes that Tony Romo is up and about, visiting a sports bar, going out for dinner with his wife and attending an SMU basketball game. Romo continues to work on his rehab, and the team contnues to be optimistic about his return.

The recovery time from the surgery is placed by the Cowboys at three to four months. The team continues to believe Romo will be ready for OTA’s in the spring – which the quarterback missed last year following a previous back related procedure.

Cowboys Twitter mailbag, Part 1 - Todd Archer, ESPN Dallas
One of the many questions Archer answers is about the need for a safety, which Archer doesn't see as that high a priority, preferring defensive linemen or even an offensive lineman instead.

I don’t think it’s the No. 1 priority. I think that’s the defensive line. They need more players there than at any other position. The recent mock drafts done by Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have the Cowboys drafting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. That’s a good enough move if there are no defensive tackles or ends there. I might even say grab an offensive lineman before a safety.
