One of the most amazing feelings in the world is peeling that little sheet of plastic off of your new phone. It's almost as great as the phone itself. The voices of Cowboys Nation have been experiencing a similar sensation on Saturday as the Cowboys began their quest for Super...
There was a point in my life where Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" played on my iPhone 30 times a day. I've moved on since then and am proud to say that I only rock out to it 16 times per 24 hours now, thank you very much. The...
Earlier this morning, a report was shared involving the Dallas Cowboys and one of their former employees: https://twitter.com/mikegarafolo/status/752493715827064832 McClain's suspension will be 10 games as it's a repeat violation of the NFL's substance policy. While Dallas currently has several young linebacker prospects and couple of veterans in Andrew Gachkar and Kyle...
Earlier today we listed the defensive players whose contracts will expiring in 2016. Now, here are the offensive players with expiring contracts and what being in a contract year could mean for them this season: Charles Brown, OT Dallas never had to find out how good or bad Brown was last year as Tyron...
The Dallas Cowboys currently have 26 players with contracts deals that will expire after the 2016 season. That may not seem like a big deal in early July, when there are 90 guys on the roster. However, the list is much more significant than you might assume. Only six of the 26...
At this point in the year, just about all major professional sports besides baseball are in a "dead" period. Football is still weeks away from training camps opening up, hockey and basketball have just finished their seasons, and well, I don't know what happens in any of the other sports. This...
It was 5 days ago when the Dallas Cowboys found out that their #55, Rolando McClain, would be suspended for the first ten games of the 2016 NFL season. Today, July 5th, the Detroit Lions released their own #55 - Stephen Tulloch. With so many 5s going on, it makes sense...
According to reports, the Cowboys are going to meet with free agent cornerback Brandon Boykin. In his fifth year after being a fourth-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles, Boykin has had a hard time finding work. He was actually signed one to a one-year flier by the Carolina Panthers in March but was later released. Boykin had six interceptions in the 2013 season but did not keep the same production the following yet. The Eagles traded him to Pittsburgh for the final year of his rookie contract.
Typically a team that drafts 31st Overall has lost the Super Bowl the season before. Such was not the case in 2013 when the Dallas Cowboys drafted Wisconsin's Travis Frederick. Draft pundits chastised the Cowboys for taking Frederick at the time. Supposed experts claimed that he was worth no more than a third round selection and that the Cowboys were out of their minds for utilizing such a valuable resource on him. You see, there was a reason why the Cowboys wanted to take Frederick in the first round...
The window for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with their teams has closed, leaving Cowboys Guard Ronald Leary with two options: Sign his 2nd round tender offer with the team Or, sit out the 2016 season Leary decided to sign the tender today, which comes with around a $2.5 million salary for the 2016 season. Leary has been a viable starter for the Cowboys since 2013, but was replaced mid-way through last season by rookie sensation La'el Collins. Collins has shown no sign of slowing down as the Cowboys starting Left Guard, and should be cemented on the line for many years to come.
With just a few days left until the 2016 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Brandon Carr have mutually agreed to freestructure his contract according to Albert Breer. This should come as welcome news to a lot of Cowboys fans who have been calling for Carr's head on a platter for a few years now. It has been the belief of a lot of Cowboys faithful that he has never quite lived up to that lofty $50 million contract, and rightfully so. Carr has been a steady presence in the Cowboys secondary having started every game since signing with the organization, but that still doesn't sit well with fans. What this pay cut shows is Carr is truly a team player and is willing to make sacrifices in order to help the team out.
The other day I got a wild hair and tweeted out the idea that Dallas could try and sign Von Miller. That's right; the reigning Super Bowl MVP and arguably the best defensive player in the NFL. Knowing that Miller was franchise tagged by the Denver Broncos, I included the price of signing him in my proposal. I get crazy ideas all the time and dismiss them quickly. This one, however, is still lingering.
It was about a month ago when football fans everywhere were glued to the Twitter feed of Adam Schefter as domino after domino continued to fall in the Free Agency Frenzy of the NFL Offseason. While we thought that our stomachs were plenty full off of juicy moves and acquisitions by various teams, we were given one last and final eye-popping serving when Josh Norman signed with the Washington Redskins on Friday. The move makes the NFL's most storied division and its 2016 storylines all the more interesting. In case you haven't heard, Josh Norman and Odell Beckham Jr. have themselves quite the history.
Rumors have circulated about the backup quarterback situation in Dallas, specifically regarding the possibility of bringing in Brian Hoyer. Some suggest the Cowboys, along with the Steelers and the Jets, are looking to sign him. Others suggest the Cowboys are not in the equation at all. Brian Hoyer (30) was...
You’ll never find an exact answer for what your favorite NFL team’s current salary cap space is. However, the two best public resources out there are OvertheCap.com and Spotrac.com. After looking at those sites today it’s clear that the Dallas Cowboys have some work to do between now and when...
I'm going to go into more detail about this in an article later today, but right now (according to OverTheCap.com and Spotrac.com) the Cowboys are headed into the draft with no cap space to actually sign their rookies. In broad terms, they would need an estimated $5 million cleared...
It has been said throughout numerous NFL off seasons that the teams that re-sign their own free agents are the ones that win. By that logic, the Dallas Cowboys should be doing plenty of winning in 2016. Today, they added to their list of free agent signings by bringing back...
The offseason is a funky time in the National Football League. Hope exists within the halls of each and every franchise's headquarters as they all prepare thinking, "This is the year." Each moment of every day right now is being devoted to the preparation towards a run in 2016 as most...
With his ability to rush the passer, from both defensive end and tackle, Jack Crawford is a great signing for 2016. But the Crawford signing does not mean the Cowboys are set on the defensive line. According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys have continued to...
The theme for the off season thus far for the Dallas Cowboys has been simple. Working on the principle that the 2015 season was completely lost due to injuries, and that the current roster is much closer to the 12 win team of 2014, they have put an emphasis...
