The Dallas Cowboys have had an interesting off-season, to say the very least.
The Cowboys had a choice to make between keeping running back DeMarco Murray or wide receiver Dez Bryant. They ultimately chose to let Murray leave for the Philadelphia Eagles, while Bryant decided to hold out until he was given a new contract after being placed under the franchise tag.
The Cowboys never really signed a proper replacement for Murray, with a battle between former understudy Joseph Randle and ex-Oakland Raiders man Darren McFadden looming as we head in to training camp.

The Cowboys may have the best offensive line in football, but a battle between Randle and McFadden really doesn't seem all too inspiring and a lot of people are surprised that Jerry Jones and co haven't brought in another back.
Well, one veteran has thrown his hat straight in to the ring if Dallas fancies a bit more veteran experience.
Jackson's Shout Out
Steven Jackson is looking for a job and the free-agent running back isn't shy about who he wants to work for. Jackson dropped a subliminal message on social media last night, taking to Twitter to post a picture of his number above AT&T Stadium.
That is quite something and surely a first in the NFL. It begs the question, is Jackson's agent so bad that his client has to take to Twitter to try and find a new club? On top of that, did Jackson make that himself? Maybe he took a photoshop course in the off-season...
A player who has to ask teams on Twitter if they’re interested probably isn’t drawing much attention, and in Jackson’s case it’s easy to see why. He’s 32-years old now and isn’t the same explosive player he was in his best seasons with the St. Louis Rams.
Jackson will find himself a new team, eventually, but it definitely won't be in Dallas. More than likely he will have to wait for a team who's starter gets injured, leaving them needing veteran help.
The three-time Pro Bowler couldn't break 800 yards during his two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, averaging under 4 yards-per-carry in both years.
