Cowboys Headlines - Deion Sanders Says Dak Prescott Will Keep Cowboys QB Job

Cowboys Nation has grown to love NFL Network for our football fix over the past few years, with team icons like Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders repeatedly defending the Cowboys to a national audience.

However, after rookie QB Dak Prescott led the Dallas Cowboys to their first 2016 victory in Washington, Hall of Fame corner back Deion Sanders proclaimed on the network - with little explanation - that Tony Romo will not get his job back as the starting quarterback for America's Team once he is healthy, instead remaining a backup to Prescott.

NFL on Twitter

Yes or No: when Tony Romo is healthy, will he be back under center?" "No." - @DeionSanders & @LT_21

Sanders sounded confident in his "no", which should come as a shock to Cowboys' faithful. We all love Dak Prescott, as we absolutely should. The fourth-round rookie has already allowed us to hold some hope for the future, while also being capable enough to keep this team relevant until Romo is healthy.

Once fully healthy though, this is Tony Romo's team, and nobody should be doubting that. Romo has given just about everything he can to the Dallas Cowboys organization, and probably could have retired right after his injury in Seattle.

Instead, he's decided to watch again from the sidelines as the Cowboys fight without him, anxiously awaiting the day he can step back on the field.

Undoubtedly my favorite moment from yesterday's win was seeing Tony on the sidelines when Kirk Cousins' desperation Hail Mary attempt went incomplete - ending the game. The smile on his face was hopeful, that 2016 was not lost, and in fact just getting started. As Jason Garrett would tell you, Dak Prescott is going to do his job, and then pass the torch back to Tony Romo to try to write a storybook season for the silver and blue.

So, Deion Sanders, Tony Romo will be getting his job back sometime soon - because we all believe he's been one of the best at his job in the entire league for quite a while.

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.

Welcome to Cowboys Nation Randall Cobb!

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: Police Detain Cowboys DL Tyrone Crawford After Bar Fight

Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford Kicked Off Thursday Flight

According to TMZ, Tyrone Crawford was involved in a brawl at a bar in Panama City, FL last Friday night. The Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman and team captain was detained by police but apparently was not arrested.

The level of Crawford's involvement has not been substantiated, but TMZ's report does have him shoving police officers at some point in the action. The incident was reportedly captured by surveillance equipment at the bar.

Given that he was not arrested, one could assume that Tyrone was not one of the primary players in the melee. But that doesn't mean the NFL won't still review this matter as it relates to the personal conduct policy, and Cowboys fans know too well how "fair" that process can be.

This is certainly not a story you'd expect to see attached to Tyrone Crawford, who has been a model citizen and leader since entering the league in 2012.

Dallas elected to keep Crawford this season despite solid potential savings. He will count $10.1 million against their 2019 salary cap, which is high for his average production. However, he can play multiple positions and is one of their most experienced players.

Even if Tyrone were to get suspended by the league, it likely wouldn't be more than a one or two-game ban given his record and reputation. It shouldn't change anything about his status with the team.
