The Dallas Cowboys enter the offseason with plenty of questions.
They managed to keep defensive coordinator Dan Quinn on board for at least another season, but their offense will have a new look now that OC Kellen Moore has left Mike McCarthy’s staff.
Ezekiel Elliott’s future is up in the air as well.
His contract is no longer guaranteed, and he’s admitted that he’d be willing to take a significant pay cut to stay with the team.
However, whether they’ll want anything to do with him after the inefficient player he’s become remains to be seen.
Moreover, the Cowboys will also have to dig deep into the free agency market to find a new kicker, as team owner Jerry Jones has already confirmed they’ll move on from Brett Maher.

Maher was mostly efficient in the regular season, knocking down 29 of 32 field goal attempts and 50 of 53 point extra attempts and averaging 65.1 yards on kickoffs.
However, he was a disaster in the playoffs, failing four out of five PATs against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, setting an infamous mark as the first player in league history to miss three or more PATs in a postseason game.
Maher was so unreliable that coach McCarthy decided to go for it on 4th-and-short yardage a couple of times during their loss to the San Francisco 49ers, so this decision doesn’t come as a surprise at all.
