Cowboys Headlines - Sundays Without Football: Lucky Whitehead Hits The Streets Of Dallas 3

June 5th marked the first Sunday in which Cowboys Nation was officially inside of 100 days left until America's Team hits the field for the first time in 2016.

It was actually 98 days, or 14 weeks, until the toe meets the ball at AT&T Stadium with the New York Giants in town. So think back to what you were doing this past Sunday late in the afternoon and fast forward till then... you'll be watching the Dallas Cowboys racing across the field in their trademark white uniforms.

If you were strolling around Dallas this past Sunday then you might've actually seen a Dallas Cowboy racing around town wearing something white - Lucky Whitehead in a Ferrari!Cowboys Headlines - Sundays Without Football: Lucky Whitehead Hits The Streets Of Dallas

The fan-favorite ace returner celebrated his 24th birthday last Thursday and seems to have been celebrating in style. If you follow Tyrone Crawford on Snapchat then you actually saw a bit of the party going on for Lucky this past weekend.

Lucky is no stranger to the popular social media platform that is Snapchat. Back in February he took over the official Snapchat account of the Dallas Cowboys and became even more popular with Cowboys Nation than he already is (and scored a second job at Popeye's!).

The red-headed-dread-kid's personal Snapchat account (Mustbeluck11) has been a great behind-the-scenes outlet for Cowboys fans as Lucky is always snapping!

He's taken us into the locker room, weight room, Dallas Cowboys parking lot, and even developed his own personal catchphrases like "He won't mind!" along the way. It was through Lucky's personal account that we got to see him in action with this Ferrari.

Lucky Whitehead elaborated on his Snapchat life, road to the Dallas Cowboys, and what it was like being a return man on the #RJOShow. You can listen to that episode by clicking here.

While it certainly looks like Lucky had a good time, it's hard to imagine that Jason Garrett would be thrilled if he knew that any one of his players was playing Fast & Furious in the streets of Dallas. Coach Garrett runs a tight ship so he's probably well aware of this and moving faster than Lucky's Ferrari to nip this in the bud.

He'll have to catch Lucky in order to do that, something that the NFC East struggles with, and if he doesn't he'll have to deal with Lucky waving goodbye to him from far, far away.

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: Dallas Cowboys Sign Free Agent Safety George Iloka

George Iloka

The Dallas Cowboys have reached a one-year agreement with Safety George Iloka, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Iloka spent 2018 with the Vikings after six years with the Bengals.

He's started 79 of his 99 career games since being a fifth-round pick by Cincinnati in 2012. Iloka turns 29 years old next week.

The Cowboys have agreed to a one-year deal with safety George Iloka, according to a source. Iloka met with the Cowboys on Friday and was the third safety to meet with the club during the week along with Clayton Geathers and Eric Berry. The Cowboys have... https://t.co/JB5nJLWepc

This isn't the safety that most Cowboys fans wanted. After over a year of pining for Earl Thomas, sights turned to Eric Berry after his free agent visit in Dallas last week.

However, it makes sense that Iloka would be attractive to the Cowboys. At 6'4" and 225 lbs, he fits the physical mold of what Defensive Backs Coach Kris Richard likes in his players. He also is younger than Berry and Thomas without the same recent injury issues.

Iloka becomes one of many Boise St. products on Dallas' roster, joining Tyrone Crawford, DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch, and others. He entered the league with college teammates Crawford and Kellen Moore, the Cowboys' new offensive coordinator, in 2012.

We'll have to wait and see how George Iloka fits into the current mix at safety with Jeff Heath and Xavier Woods. He spent most of 2018 as a backup with Minnesota, but Dallas will likely give him a chance to start.

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.
