​Brutal. Decimating. Disastrous.


There's no one word to describe how awful the Cowboys' losses on the defensive side of the ball have been in free agency.


The most ​recent losses include Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne, who were quite literally swooped up by the Ravens and Jets, respectively.


But, the bleeding doesn't stop there. Dallas has lost several starters and other key pieces of its 2016 defense.

Sure, the Cowboys still have their top two pass rushers in Tyrone Crawford and David Irving, and the cornerstone of their defense in linebacker Sean Lee.


However, things actually appear worse when you look at how these losses translate into numbers.

​​So, why has Jerry Jones allowed the rest of the NFL to pillage his defensive roster?


Aside from being distracted by his deteriorating relationship with Tony Romo, Jones is handcuffed by the ungodly amount of cap space the former franchise quarterback's contract is taking up.


Brace yourselves Cowboys nation, there's going to be a lot of points scored by opposing teams in Jerry World next season. This team is going to need to make some big moves ASAP.
