What happens throughout this free agency period is going to drastically impact the foreseeable future for the Dallas Cowboys. There are several decisions that the Cowboys are going to have to make with regards to their own internal free agents which is just as much a part of free agency as luring in players from other teams. You can see a full list of all Cowboys free agents right here.

A lot has changed with regards to the NFL calendar, but here is where things stand on the outset of free agency.

  • Saturday, March 14th (11:59 PM ET): Deadline for players to vote on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement - The CBA passed.
  • Monday, March 16th (11:59 AM ET): Deadline for NFL teams to place franchise tags on players - Dak Prescott was tagged.
  • Monday, March 16th (12 PM ET): The NFL’s legal tampering window opens
  • Wednesday, March 18th (4 PM ET): Free agency begins

The Cowboys are limited to one tag with the new CBA.

As per usual we have put together a tracker here at BTB in order to keep track of anything and everything related to the Cowboys throughout this process. This post will be updated as more information, reports, rumors, signings, and re-signings all become available.

Last updated on Wednesday, April 1st at 9:40 PM ET.
