though some of those players should be back, 17 out of 53 is 32 percent. That's pretty close to the annual one-third turnover most teams have.
Maybe offensive line and safety is tweaked, as expected. Maybe guys like Marion Barber or Roy Williams aren't back, as constantly speculated.
But the best players will still be here. As Troy Aikman said on his weekly radio appearance (KTCK-AM) Wednesday, this team is talented enough to win. They've done it before. Heck, they won five games out of 10 without Romo.
Jones hired Garrett full-time because he's convinced he can bring the core back to its previous level. And in an offseason filled with uncertainty, these coaching decisions will be just as important as the player decisions.
