Dallas Cowboys

One OK Sooner for Another?



Amani Toomer

As I do everyday I read the fort-worth star telegram (my favorite newspaper)today to see what was happening in the metroplex and unfortunately Roy Willy is still a Cowboy! I have been hearing this since the season ended and draft talk began but apparently the cowboys have Reggie Smith (CB from OU) in their sights! As we all know the Dallas secondary needs help in two major areas.

The first and most glaring need is at safety since the one we have SUCKS!!! and actually the best safety on the team is now a free agent (Ken Hamlin). In my opinion we would be better off if we could somehow find some idiot G.M. (Matt Millen) and sell him on how much he needs Roy Willy and trade his sorry ass and resign Hamlin. This would make the secondary look something like this:

  • DB1 = T-New
  • DB2 = Draft
  • FS = Anthony Henry or Pat Watkins
  • SS = Ken Hamlin

Second necessary Item would be the need for another stand alone corner to take Henry's position alongside T-New.The word around town is that the cowboys have Reggie Smith on their radar. I would like to say that I like this kid and think he would bring some of the same things Henry brings to the table, tenacity,fierceness,and of course the obvious ability to cover.The problem I have with him is he is a Sooner and our recent track record with Sooners is well shitty and I would rather not have any of their kind on the team. I would much rather see the boys try to swing a deal to get up in the draft and get a kid like Mike Jenkins from south Florida or Leodis McKelvin from Troy. either of these two guys would be great additions.

The key to any of this working out in Dallas's favor is finding someone (Matt Millen) to take shit bag off their hands ( I am in favor of a Roy Williams for Roy Williams straight up).

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
