OXNARD, Calif. The Dallas Cowboys made a lot of off-season moves.

They added running back Darren McFadden, defensive end Greg Hardy, rookie draft picks defensive back Byron Jones and linebacker Randy Gregory and undrafted rookie La’el Collins among others.

Cowboys vice-president Stephen Jones said it’s too early to put a grade on the off-season transactions.

“Your final grade is your record. It’s impossible to grade the off-season when you’re trying to make your team better. I think we accomplished our goal,” Stephen Jones said on Wednesday during the annual state-of-the-team news conference to open training camp. “It’s like a draft class. At the end of the day, it’s how they perform over the next two or three years.”

Jones reiterated later in the news conference that it’ll be a wait-and-see approach to how the newcomers fit.

“We added personnel in the places where we needed to be better,” Jones said. “The personnel looks better on paper. We’ll see how it plays out.”
