Stephen Jones: Cap crunch may be a blessing, force the Cowboys to draft well like Seahawks

Vice president Stephen Jones said the Cowboys can do what they need to do in free agency but acknowledges salary-cap restraints will force them to be prudent.

The Cowboys are roughly $15-20 million over the projected salary cap of $130 million for 2014.

They will need to make moves to clear room just get under the cap by the start of free agency March 11.

Jones said, however, the limits may be a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys as it may force them to build a winner through the draft like the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

“Free agency isn’t always the answer,” Jones said. “We could go out and hire somebody if we wanted. But I don’t see us going in that direction now. We are not in any rush. But what it may cause you to do is draft young people and play your draft picks, which may make us a better football team. A team like Seattle shows that.”
