Jerry and Stephen Jones are at the Spring League Meetings and he revealed a few thoughts on free agency and the Cowboys draft needs.

With team USA’s lopsided win over Puerto Rico, another World Baseball Classic is in the books and for the first time ever, there seems to be more positive commentary than negative.
