Projected to be a cellar dweller in the preseason, the Cowboys' defense surprised in 2014, finishing in the top 10 against the run and in the top half of the league in points allowed.

The Cowboys have several free agents on the defensive side of the ball, including three at linebacker (Bruce Carter, Justin Durant and the surprising Rolando McClain). Who else is poised to hit the market this offseason?
