Free agency is in full swing and so far within its first week we have seen some blockbuster signings throughout the league. The Cowboys have been quietly making moves while the world still speculates on Tony Romo's future with the team.
As of Wednesday, the Cowboys have signed three new free agents, re-signed three players from last season, and lost six to other teams.
DE Jack Crawford had been with the Cowboys since 2014 but was a free agent heading into the current season. On March 9 he signed a three-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons. Before he left he made sure to give a heartfelt goodbye to all of his Dallas fans:
Cole Beasley also gave him a proper send-off:
Another longtime Cowboy, Ronald Leary, signed a big four-year contract with the Denver Broncos. Here's what he had to say to his fans after five seasons with the Cowboys:
Beasley had some nice words for him as well:
The Cowboys also said goodbye to Barry Church, who has been a Cowboy ever since he signed with Dallas as an undrafted rookie in 2010. He signed a four-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars last Friday, but before leaving he let #CowboysNation know what they meant to him:
Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier wished Church well on his new journey:
Cowboys fans haven't seen the last of Terrell McClain after he signed a four-year contract with the Washington Redskins; he'll now face Cowboys twice a year within the division. However, before leaving he thanked fans for his time in Dallas:
Most recently, defensive end Ryan Davis signed with the Buffalo Bills on Monday. He had some nice words to say before his departure:
Although the Cowboys have lost some players they have also been busy signing and re-signing others. A lot of fans were interested in the status of Terrance Williams and despite many expecting him to sign elsewhere, he remained "loyal" to #CowboysNation and re-signed with a four-year deal:
Brice Butler also re-signed with the Cowboys, helping most of the 2016 offense remain intact for 2017:
One very important part of the offense was excited about these two signings:
Finally, the Cowboys added some new faces to the squad with the signings of DT
Stephen Paea, CB Nolan Carroll and DE Damontre Moore. Here is how they reacted to joining America's Team:
Bonus! Stephen Paea may be a beast on the field but off the field he is best known for his bench pressing skills at the 2011 NFL Combine. He lifted up 225 pounds 49 times. Here's what that looks like:
