Dez Bryant Says, “You Don’t Have To Ask Anymore…I’m Good To Go”

Six weeks through the season, the Dallas Cowboys might be the best team in the NFC. Yes, the absolute best.

Outside of a week one hiccup the Cowboys have controlled every single game they've played this season, and have dominated quality, playoff caliber opponents the last two weeks. Dak Prescott is rolling in ways that I never expected him to be, Ezekiel Elliott is the league's leading rusher by a mile, and the defense is creating timely turnovers to give that offense even more opportunities to score.

As good as the Cowboys look right now, things got even better after the win in Green Bay, when veteran wide receiver Dez Bryant told reporters that he will be back and ready to go for the Cowboys next game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

In his last game action Dez went for over 100 yards on 7 catches in a win over the Washington Redskins, and scored his first touchdown of the year while hobbled against the Chicago Bears.

Being fully healed and eager to contribute to this winning team, Dez Bryant will add a whole new dimension to an offense which is already 3rd in the NFL in terms of yards per game.

Unlike last season where the Cowboys were clearly forced to rush Tony Romo and Dez Bryant back onto the field before they may have been ready, this current win streak has given them the ability to be patient and allow them their time to heal correctly.

Luckily for the team, and for us fans, Dez Bryant is forcing their hand and seems to be ready to play as soon as the next game.

For a team who's strength is their offense to be succeeding this much, and playing this well, without their number one wide-out and starting quarterback is special, no matter what anyone in the National media or other fan-bases' may say. Now, as they get their deep threat and play-maker back in the fold, this Cowboys offense will only be better coming off the bye week.

See you in Dallas, Dez, Cowboys Nation cannot wait.

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.

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.

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.
