Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones truly believes the talent acquisition business in the NFL is a year-round proposition.

But just know he is not pressed to add anything to the current roster. He is confident in what the Cowboys have accomplished in free agency and the draft and says the team is ready to roll in 2016 as is.

Never mind the uncertainly surrounding the defensive end position because starters Randy Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence suspended for the first four games for violating the substance abuse policy.

Never mind that no one else at the position has more than three sacks in a season.

Never mind that the Cowboys still have unproven situation at backup quarterback behind Tony Romo with the limited and inexperienced Kellen Moore and rookie draft pick Dak Prescott as the only viable options.

Jones said the Cowboys are good to go.

“Sure. We don’t feel like we need to [add anything] but we always have our eyes open,” Stephen Jones said. “At some point, I’m sure things will change, and if we see the right opportunity to improve our football team we’ll do it. You know my old saying, 365 days a year you’re looking to improve. But do I think we could go play with everybody on this roster and get going and feel good about it? Yes. But you always look for ways to improve your team.”
