Stephen Jones: Cowboys not pressed to sign free agents, comfortable finding bargains after draft

Vice-president Stephen Jones feels no sense of urgency to get a contract extension with quarterback Tony Romo or linebacker Anthony Spencer so the Cowboys can be players in the free agent market.
The Cowboys have roughly $102,000 in room under the 2013 salary cap of $123 million.
Jones said the Cowboys are only interested in adding second-tier veterans to give them insurance at a couple of uncertain positions and they can do that after the draft and all the way up to training camp because of the limited amont of money they plan to spend.  
"We think we can fill whatever holes we need from a veteran standpoint after the draft," Jones said. "We dont have the money for the future or whatever to be looking at guys you're going to be paying significant amounts of money. If the right guy comes up and we can get him, then well get him. At the end of the day we're going to take the best player available in the draft. We have players that we think can start. If we lineup today we can play with them."
