News & Notes - Voice of the Nation: Ranking the Top 5 All-Time Dallas Cowboys

The NFL schedule was released Thursday evening and it marks the begining of fans' anticipation of the upcoming season.  This even marks a string of events that everyone is excited for that starts with the NFL draft, includes OTA's and training camp, and concludes with the preseason.

I'll get right to the chase, this is the Cowboys 2013 schedule:

Bruce Carter 54Week 1: New York Giants
Week 2: @ Kansas City Chiefs
Week 3: St. Louis Rams
Week 4: @ San Diego Chargers
Week 5: Denver Broncos
Week 6: Washington Redskins
Week 7: @ Philadelphia Eagles
Week 8: @ Detroit Lions
Week 9: Minnesota Vikings
Week 10: @ New Orleans Saints
Week 11: BYE
Week 12: @ New York Giants
Week 13: Oakland Raiders (Thanksgiving)
Week 14: @ Chicago Bears
Week 15: Green Bay Packers
Week 16: @ Washington Redskins
Week 17: Philadelphia Eagles

Quick Takeaways:

- The Cowboys have a very favorable first six weeks with only two away games. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that they start quickly out of the gates.  A 5-1 or 4-2 record should be the target.

- The week 11 BYE comes at a perfect time as it will allow the team to get rested and healthy for a hard push through the end of November and into December.  Weeks 14-17 are the hardest slate of the season, in the what is historycally the Cowboys' toughest month.

- The Cowboys only have two back-to-back away games and one pair of those is seperated by a bye week.  This is the first time in a while that I can remember the Cowboys not having some vicious road trip.

- Overall, at quick glance, I think the Cowboys could flow through this schedule with 10 or 11 wins.  If they stay healthy, this is a playoff team, no question.

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

According to multiple sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year deal to help bolster their depth at the WR position and potentially become Cole Beasley's replacement.

Cowboys are giving former Packers' WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source. https://t.co/8KWFPjSP8T

The Dallas Cowboys met with Randall Cobb earlier this week, but he eventually left Dallas without a contract. He must've had a change of heart or just needed time to ponder the Cowboys offer, but regardless of what transpired in that short time he is now part of America's Team.

During his time with the Packers, Cobb accumulated 470 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran will now be expected to replace some of Cole Beasley's production out of the slot for the Dallas Cowboys.

After years of watching Beasley as the Cowboys slot WR, it will be really interesting to see Randall Cobb in that role. He's not as quick twitched as No. 11, but can be just as dangerous due to his ability to be more of a down the field receiver. He also brings added value in the return game and could compete with Tavon Austin to become the return specialist.

This could mean the Cowboys forgo drafting a wide receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but I wouldn't put it past them. Regardless of what happens, this is an excellent addition.

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.

REPORT: Cowboys Negotiating Trade with Dolphins for DE Robert Quinn

Robert Quinn

According to a report just minutes ago, the Dallas Cowboys are visiting with Miami Dolphins' Defensive End Robert Quinn today as part of a possible trade. Miami is looking for a trade partner to try to get something back for Quinn before making him a salary cap casualty.

Quinn is in the final year of his contract and is set to count $12.9 million against the Dolphins' salary cap. Most of that is his base salary of $11.8 million, which Miami is reportedly willing to pay part of to help facilitate a trade.

Tom Pelissero on Twitter

Robert Quinn was spotted today on his way to visit the #Cowboys, who are in trade talks with the #Dolphins for the veteran DE, sources say. Quinn would need to agree to any deal. So, this is another step in the process, with a Dallas team that obviously needs pass rush.

The Cowboys need DE help with DeMarcus Lawrence's contract still unresolved and Randy Gregory now indefinitely suspended for another drug policy violation. They signed Kerry Hyder from the Lions yesterday, but he isn't a proven commodity like Quinn.

Turning 29 in May, Robert Quinn is a two-time Pro Bowler and former first-round pick of the Rams. He hasn't had the same production in recent years but still had 6.5 sacks for Miami in 2018 and 8.5 the prior year with Los Angeles.

Ever the bargain shoppers these days, Dallas is probably hoping to get Quinn for late-round draft pick or perhaps a pick swap.
