The Redskins beat the original CBA talks deadline and signed Atogwe.
The draft is the best way to build and reload, but free agency will have to help yet again.
I say it every year, and I said it again on Thursday's show, probably at the risk of sounding like status quo's the way to go: the Cowboys need upgrades, but they have to be smart about acquiring them. And they may have their eye on some impending unrestricted players who aren't free to negotiate yet.
Depending on how these extended labor talks go, it's still unknown when the Cowboys finally learn what hand they've been dealt and can get started on improving their roster in earnest.
