Free Agents Cowboys Should Pursue After 2024 NFL Draft

The Dallas Cowboys were curiously inactive in early free agency, but they managed to address a couple of pressing needs over draft weekend.

Specifically, first-round pick Tyler Guyton and third-round pick Cooper Beebe will have a chance to replace departed left tackle Tyron Smith and center Tyler Biadasz, respectively. Second-round pick Marshawn Kneeland can help replace the pass-rushing depth vacated by Dorance Armstrong and Dante Fowler Jr.

Dallas did turn back to the free-agent market post-draft, signing former running back Ezekiel Elliott to a one-year, $2 million deal. The Cowboys may not be done bargain-hunting, though, with just $4.5 million in cap space remaining, they may also have to get creative with their contract construction.

Here, we’ll examine three available free agents Dallas should pursue in the post-draft window of free agency.
