Jim Harbaugh Believes Taco Charlton And Jourdan Lewis Will Find Success In Dallas

The first loss Jim Harbaugh experienced as an NFL Head Coach happened on September 18th, 2011 at the old Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The winning team that day? Only the Dallas Cowboys led by a particular legendary quarterback named Tony Romo who'd suffered a punctured lung that day.

Jourdan Lewis, Taco Charlton

Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh is a firm believer that the Dallas Cowboys are going to love Jourdan Lewis (#26) and Taco Charlton (#33).

It's been almost six years since that day - holy smokes - and now Jim Harbaugh roams the collegiate sidelines once again, nowadays in Ann Arbor as the Head Coach at the University of Michigan. The Wolverines have undergone a serious transformation under The One That Wears The Khakis, and two of his latest proteges have now moved on and will join the team he took his first NFL loss against.

That's right. Defensive End Taco Charlton (1st Round, 28th Overall) and Cornerback Jourdan Lewis (3rd Round, 92nd Overall) are trading in - in my opinion - the greatest helmet college football has to offer for the one NFL players covet most - The Star. They are two of the latest examples of the Cowboys coveting players from the Power Five Conferences as they both not only hail from the Big Ten, but were teammates at Michigan.

Michigan's Harbaugh Talks Taco, Lewis Drafted by Dallas

NBC 5's Pat Doney talks with Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh about the Cowboys drafting Wolverine standouts Taco Charlton and Jourdan Lewis during an event in Dallas.

During a recent event in Dallas, NBC 5's Pat Doney caught up with Jim Harbaugh to discuss the two new Wolverines Cowboys Nation will be rooting hard for. Coach Harbaugh gave a lot of great insight and reflection that gives reason to be excited.

"Taco Charlton, Jourdan Lewis... two great young men because they truly want to be good. They're serious about being good and they've been put to the test. They've had to do the hard stuff." -Jim Harbaugh

Of course we all know that Taco Charlton and Jourdan Lewis will go from Jim Harbaugh to Jason Garrett in terms of who's calling the shots, and the former thinks that the latter is going to really enjoy his new toys.

"I think Coach Garrett will be really happy with the way they practice. They're gonna show up. They're gonna be on time. They're gonna work hard. They're gonna do the kind of stuff they say they're gonna do. And it's important to them to be good." -Jim Harbaugh

Playing for Jim Harbaugh is hardly a walk in the park. Both Taco Charlton and Jourdan Lewis are coming to the Cowboys with a firm idea of what it's like to be coached by an NFL-caliber top dog. Let's get to work, fellas!

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: 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.
