With free agency entering the final stages, we'll review the Cowboys' past five free-agency classes.

We'll continue with 2010.

Players signed: None

Starts earned: 0

Analysis: This was the first time the Cowboys didn't sign anybody in free agency since 2008. However, the Cowboys who lost six players the previous season in free agency, including two former draft picks (Kevin Burnett and Chris Canty), allowed safety Ken Hamlin and guard Cory Procter to leave. The Cowboys maintained the playing status of Keith Brooking (16 starts), Igor Olshansky (14 games) and Gerald Sensabaugh (15 games) from the previous free agency class. What is interesting about this class was the draft. The Cowboys snagged future starter Sean Lee in the second round and a quality backup defensive lineman in Sean Lissemore in the seventh round. The Cowboys also used their supplemental draft pick on defensive end Josh Brent. Dallas finished this season at 6-10 and coach Wade Phillips was fired after a 45-7 loss at Green Bay. Jason Garrett took over and the Cowboys had a strong finish, 5-3. It's the only time Garrett ended a season above .500 mark.
