When a player leaves a team and finds success with another franchise, fans of the original team criticize that club for allowing the player to depart. In Dallas’ case, it’s safe to say not many players made the Cowboys look bad this season. To prove that, SportsDay’s Jon Machota has listed 30 former Cowboys and how they performed in 2013.

Good list, but really tells us nothing, the right person could have made this a wonderful article.
A lot of these guys were let go because of the cap. Others went to serious bottom dwellers. Others came to us from other teams and were just filling a spot.
Although its nice to see where they went and how they are doing. The stats tell us nothing, but many people told me Alan Ball would be out of football. Haha, I'm getting the last laugh on that one.
Yes I remember the attacks here on Alan, but will he still be playing next year?
