Cowboys Headlines - Jerry Jones Named Finalist As Contributor For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

A great injustice is on the way to being rectified.

Breaking News: @dallascowboys Jerry Jones and former @NFL commish Paul Tagliabue selected as Contributor Finalists for #PFHOF17

This is undoubtedly one of the greatest days of Jerry Jones' life. That is not hyperbole.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is referred to as the greatest fraternity in professional football. It is hallowed ground where only the game's greatest are granted admission. Jerry Jones is, potentially, going to finally join that illustrious club.

The contributions that Jerry Jones has made to the National Football League are, honestly, too many to list. USA Today tried to earlier this offseason when they named Jerry Jones the NFL's most important person, outranking Commissioner Roger Goodell by the way.

We are at a point in society where the NFL completely dominates the landscape of professional sports in America. That is totally, completely, and unequivocally due to the immense work and innovation brought to the league by Jerry Jones.

The NFL has become marketable in ways that Jerry's predecessors could have never envisioned. The league's entire net worth would be a fraction of what it is today without the visions that he's brought to life.

Last week the NFL celebrated its return to Los Angeles. This could not have happened without Mr. Jones' lobbying and orchestration. He helped ensure that one of the largest media markets in the world regained an NFL team, giving the NFL staying power in such market.

It should be noted that Jerry Jones is merely a Finalist at this point in time, but typically people who are put in this position ultimately are announced as Pro Football Hall of Fame Ensrhinees the following January/February.

We are seemingly months away from Jerry Jones being announced as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It is an honor that is incredibly long overdue, but one that Cowboys Nation will celebrate ferociously nonetheless.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll. @RJOchoa if you wanna shout!

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: 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.
