DEC 28 ME TOO! Dez Bryant has retired from football, to become a family man and businessman, and has not played in the NFL since 2020.
But he sure relishes the idea of another Dallas Cowboys great trying to make a comeback.
According to a CowboysSI.com scoop, Hall of Famer Terrell Owens, 49, has been calling Jerry Jones’ office, asking to try out.
“If T.O comes back… sign up for a playoff team… seriously! LFG,” Bryant tweeted.
Bryant, 34, was a Pro Bowl force with 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys. Like Owens, he’s staying in great shape, and … OK, these are great ideas … but they’re not Cowboys ideas, if you get what we mean.
DEC 26 WHITE ON WHITE Because we know you care …
We can report that this is the week you see a “new” look in the Cowboys’ signature uniform, the white “Colour Rush” uniform with navy rims … along with a white star studded helmet. new …
It will all play out in this Week 17 meeting with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.
Subtle youth. But the face mask should explode!
DEC 24 24 SHUT UP AND PLAY This week, Cowboys quarterback Jayron Kearse encouraged his locker room to shut up and play.
Kearse said ahead of Saturday’s visit of the Eagles: “We talked a lot. At this point, we don’t need to talk anymore. We need to talk about business. We need to talk about action. The film should talk. I really don’t think there’s much to do other than getting the job done.”
So far, Kearse is living up to that, with two takeaways largely responsible for keeping Dallas in this game. His second…
It’s headed for a TD from Michael Gallup, another guy who lets his play — or in this case, his fingers — speak for him.
Dallas is tied 27-all with the Eagles entering fourth here at AT&T Stadium.
DEC 21 Cowboys and Eagles injury reports are due Wednesday. With Micah Parsons and Jalen Hurts again DNP highlights.
Regardless of who plays on Saturday, the Cowboys vow to be ready.
“I think everybody in the locker room is looking forward to this game again,” Dak Prescott said, adding, “Understanding that (the Eagles) are playing their asses off, they’re having a good time. …
“You want to shoot again, make sure you put your foot first.”
DEC 21 MICAH OUT AGAIN Micah Parsons will appear on Wednesday’s practice/injury report as he did on Tuesday, and it lists the “Lion-backer” as DNP (disease).
“Micah Parsons won’t be with us today … It’s been circulating,” coach Mike McCarthy said of the illness bug.
The Cowboys play the Eagles on Christmas Eve.
DEC 20 Malik Jefferson, waived from the Cowboys’ practice squad last week, has been re-signed to the practice squad, the team says.
Jefferson, a 26-year-old former Texas Longhorn, could provide depth in the lineup after Leighton Vander Esch’s short-term injury.
DEC 20 DALLAS AT DALLAS The Eagles announced Tuesday that Dallas Goedert has been activated from IR. … In time to play against his namesake, the Dallas Cowboys.
Goedert has been out since Week 10 with a shoulder injury, but he returns for the 13-1 Eagles with 544 yards and three touchdowns on 43 catches in nine games. complement receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.
Philly will be without QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for Saturday’s game at 10-4 Dallas.
DEC 18 KELVIN BENCHED The Cowboys are suddenly struggling on defense.
For one, they pulled starting cornerback Kelvin Joseph after he gave up two consecutive touchdown catches. … so Nahshon Wright entered the game.
Meanwhile, safety Donovan Wilson is hurt, as is Leighton Vander Esch.
Add it all? Dallas was up 27-10, but Trevor Lawrence, who took advantage of some of Dak Prescott’s laziness, threw three TD passes…
DEC 18 LVE HURT Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch has been escorted to the locker room in Jacksonville and is now ruled out for the game against the Jags.
Among the possible theories, the Cowboys call it a neck injury.
Micah Parsons has a sack and Ezekiel Elliott has a TD after taking a trip and the Cowboys are up 21-10 in the third as the win clinches the playoffs.
DEC 18 COACH HOSPITAL Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees, 73, left the field in New Orleans during warmups today after a Saints player accidentally collided with him.
The Falcons say Pees – who was on the ground for a long time after the collision – is “alert and responsive” while being taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
DEC 14 ‘STAND UP’ Jerry Jones wants it.
The Cowboys owner was asked by the DFW media Wednesday afternoon about the exact timing of Odell Beckham Jr.’s signing.
He said: “Instead.
“I don’t want to talk about that but I’m waiting,” Jones said. But wait. Stand by.”
Jones, as the Cowboys recently signed fellow vet T.Y. Hilton, was asked Tuesday by 105.3 The Fan if the fact that OBJ won’t play today (because of his “ticking time bomb” knee) dictates the deal.
“I wouldn’t go that far if you include athletics,” Jones said. “We wouldn’t be interested in Odell if he didn’t have the talent. I think it’s fair to say he’s a great receiver … he’s like, you know, when he’s ready to play. He’s that receiver. I think he’ll be a good fit any time. There’s going to be continued interest in Odell.”
Also important (click above): The parties discussed the terms of the contract on Monday.
DEC 14 DEC 14 ALL IMPORTANT The Cowboys placed Johnathan Hankins (pec strain) and Terence Steele (torn ACL and MCL) on injured reserve.
Steele is out for the season. Hankins hopefully has a chance to be activated during the playoffs.
DEC 14 OBJ TOLERANCE? Is Odell Beckham Jr. he is a “free agent” … for the year 2023.
The Dallas Cowboys are still considering signing OBJ now, hoping he can contribute to the NFL Playoffs – and perhaps with a contract offer that would protect his services for years to come, especially- hall as his “ticking time bomb”. knee right in the past.
Indeed, it seems that the Cowboys camp and Beckham talked on Monday about the contract stages in Dallas. to play anywhere this time becomes small.
But ESPN is now reporting that “several teams” in the NFL believe that the 30-year-old receiver now has the opportunity to wait until the start of the season to make his deal.
“Executives whose teams have done their homework on Beckham expect him to stick around because, as one put it, ‘he’s going to be the prize’ of the free agent class,” ESPN writes. “Beckham is not expected to be ready to play football until the playoffs, and joining a new team and offense for the playoffs comes with the risk of injury.”
The Cowboys noticed all of this and bolstered their receiver room with the signing of veteran T.Y. Hilton.
Could there be team rewards for throwing three-time Pro Bowler OBJ on the field in the playoffs? Maybe. But OBJ’s financial reward can only come when he proves his knee is healthy… making him “reward” next March.
DEC 13 BEAS TO BILLS Could the Buffalo Bills be on the verge of setting up another receiver conference? A number of popular and reported tweets about the airport have internet rumors about former Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley returning to Orchard Park.
And now it continues, NFL Network is reporting that Beasley is signing with Buffalo.
WIVB-TV reported Monday night on Twitter that Beasley was back in Buffalo, the reporter citing a tweet Beasley liked, which said Beasley was on a flight from Baltimore to Buffalo.
Beasley, 33, a native of Little Elm, entered the NFL out of SMU and the Cowboys before moving to Buffalo. He left the NFL just two games into his game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in early October.
In three seasons (2019-21), the often outspoken “Beas” recorded 2,348 yards and 11 touchdowns on 231 carries, and became one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.
DEC 12 MONDAY MEDICALS In addition to offensive tackle Terence Steele now out for the year with a groin injury, defensive end Johnathan Hankins is dealing with a strained pec from Sunday’s win over the Texans that coach Mike McCarthy’s comments are “important.”
The Cowboys believe defensive end Dorance Armstrong, who wore a protective boot after Sunday’s game, can play through his sore ankle this week in Jacksonville.
The loss of Steele is huge, and the Cowboys now plan to consolidate the O-line, possibly with junior Josh Ball and junior Jason Peters around the right tackle.
“A rock of a man,” said McCarthy of Steele.
DEC 11 INJURY ISSUES The Dallas Cowboys on Sunday recorded a late 27-23 victory over the Texans, but had some losses along the way.
Most troubling: starting right tackle Terence Steele left the game with a knee injury that the Cowboys said they were “very concerned about,” with an upcoming MRI.
Also, defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins injured his shoulder and tight end Jake Ferguson suffered a head/neck injury.
Steele’s injury is a major concern, as the Cowboys replaced him with junior Josh Ball, but switched to vet Jason Peters at right tackle.
Next week in Jacksonville, Peters could be a right tackle as Tyron Smith returns to claim the lefty job.
Also, Trevon Diggs left for a while with a thumb injury – and now he says he’s playing with injuries to both fingers. Ms. Dorance Armstrong is wearing a protective boot after spraining her ankle.
DEC 11 COWBOYS OPEN HOT The combination of an offensive line that plagues the Texans and Tony Pollard’s skills that fit well with the Cowboys’ game plan has Dallas off to a fast start over the Texans.
Pollard added scores from 11 yards to a nine-play, 76-yard TD run to open Week 14 here at AT&T Stadium.
DEC 10 PHONES Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott were fined $13,261 each for their TD celebration using the Salvation Army Red Kettle against the Colts.
Money well spent, the Cowboys Nation will agree. That’s right. Zeke?
He said: “It is important that we have awareness that we bring to the Salvation Army.”
DEC 9 WHAT TIME IS IT? Sean McVay is a fierce man. But even the Los Angeles Rams coach couldn’t understand what he had just overseen.
The coach seemed frustrated by the result, a 17-16 win at Las Vegas on Thursday night that featured all kinds of opposition, capped by Ram-for-a-day (or so) QB Baker Mayfield. make a long-forgotten TD drive with 1:45 to play.
“Like we designed it,” McVay said, adding, “I’m still like, ‘What happens now?”
“I don’t know if you can write it any better than that,” said Mayfield, who was suspended by Carolina a few days ago and was included in the “Thursday Night Football” game (heard by Matthew Stafford) for a few games only. in. “It’s a pretty good story, I’ll tell you the truth.”
This is what was happening…follow!
Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks – a trade target for the Cowboys before this year’s deadline – injured his calf and is now expected to miss his second straight game. … Another Sunday afternoon in Dallas.
And … it still leads to fellow starter Nico Collins missing another game with a foot injury.
Houston is 1-10-1 and is already short on weapons against 9-3 Dallas.
DEC 7 VON OUT FOR THE YEAR Buffalo Bills star rusher Von Miller, who had hoped to return to action in the coming weeks, instead underwent surgery for a torn ACL in his knee and now it’s over this time.
The announcement was made Wednesday at team headquarters by head coach Sean McDermott.
Miller, a DFW native and Cowboys offseason target before signing with Buffalo, has a long-term contract with the Bills … and is sure to stay in the news for a while as he’s a key player in the recruiting process. wounded Buffalo. Odell Beckham Jr., and Dallas Cowboys opponent there.
DEC 5 TEXAS RIVALS?! No, Week 14 doesn’t pit the “rivals” against each other as the Houston Texans play the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium at noon on Sunday.
Communities “love to hate” each other. But the teams and their fans? Cowboys Nation couldn’t care less about the Texans…and neither do Texans fans right now.
The Texans just lost to the Cleveland Browns, 27-14, and even Deshaun Watson, who was controversial to return to Houston, did not care about the audience.
The Texans have a record of 1-10-1.
The Cowboys – coming off a 54-19 win over Indy – play on Sunday Night Football as they look to improve their 9-3 record and keep pace with the Eagles. Dallas has won two straight and four of the last five and some oddballs have the Cowboys as a 17-point favorite in this one.
Now the Cowboys are making a habit of scoring 30-plus. The Texans have not scored more than 17 points in their last six games. So…place your bets!
DEC 4 JIMMY G CARTED OFF The 49ers say QB Jimmy Garoppolo is questionable to return for the game against the Dolphins due to injury. Brock Purdy is now at QB. And so…
This is a potential shift in the balance of power in the NFC … for a team like the Seahawks in the West and for teams like the Dallas Cowboys across the board.
UPDATE: After San Francisco’s 33-17 win, coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will need season-ending foot surgery.
DEC 4 TWO NEW LOOKS The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders on Sunday night will debut a new look for their red, white and blue boots as part of the team’s “Salute to Service” weekend … which you Read more here as Dallas takes on Indianapolis at AT&T Stadium.
But besides that, Christmas is coming, and the Cowboys are scheduled to host the Eagles on Christmas Day…
So the Cowboys Cheerleaders need to dress appropriately, and they will, as they’ve been showing off their special holiday outfits.
DEC 3: DEION DECISION Deion Sanders has officially announced that he will be Colorado’s next head coach.
Sanders went 27-5 in three seasons at Jackson St.
The announcement came shortly after Sanders led Jackson State to its second straight SWAC title.
Jackson State defeated Southern 43-24 in the title game, capping the school’s first undefeated season.
“There were many qualified and impressive candidates interested in becoming the next football coach in Colorado, but none of them had the pedigree, knowledge and the ability to connect with student-athletes like Deion Sanders,” the Colorado athletic director. Rick George said in the statement. “Not only will Coach Prime energize our fan base, I am confident that he will lead our program back to national prominence while leading a quality and elite team. .”
Sanders, 55, has played 14 seasons in the NFL, five of them with the Cowboys. During his tenure in Dallas, he collected 159 tackles, 14 interceptions, and two touchdowns. Sanders was a member of the 1995 Cowboys championship team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
It has begun recruiting staff and players to Colorado.
DEC 2 ANTONIO BROWN TROUBLE Antonio Brown has occasionally hinted at a return to the NFL, sometimes hinting at the Dallas Cowboys as his employer.
That will not happen. Instead, Brown has real-life issues as he faces further legal action following a recent alleged domestic incident that led to an arrest warrant being issued. for the first position in the NFL.
Brown, 34, is reportedly wanted by police on a battery charge stemming from an incident earlier in the week involving the mother of four of Brown’s six children at her south Tampa home.
On Thursday night, NBC News reported Tampa police were still trying to arrest Brown after conducting multiple searches outside his home. The department told NBC that Brown “is not talking to police.”
Tampa’s WFTS-TV reported that officers were at Brown’s home for more than an hour, and used a megaphone to call to him from his front door. A Tampa police affidavit shows Brown and the woman had a verbal altercation earlier this week, with Brown saying “if she comes in the house, he’s going to shoot her in front of the police,” according to court documents .
DEC 1 BYE, OBJ It’s already been known that the Los Angeles Rams weren’t game about re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. But now there is tangible evidence…
The Associated Press reveals that the former key to the team’s HQ that was used by, and is still reserved for, a free agent is no longer available.
“The locker that had Odell Beckham Jr.’s name on it at the Rams practice facility from last year is empty,” Beacham said. “They don’t reserve OBJ’s place anymore.”
OBJ is, starting today, taking a spectator tour with Thursday’s visit with the Giants, Friday’s visit with the Bills and Monday’s visit with the Cowboys in the pipeline.
NOV 29 NOW, OBJ! Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at @1053thefan makes the team’s goal of Odell Beckham Jr. a matter of urgency.
“This year should be a big part of it,” Jones said. “We have six regular season games and the playoffs, so in my mind, we have almost the whole show ahead of us. We have to have a situation where he can really contribute now.”
Now, let’s make sure to get that straight: Part of what Jones seems to be saying is that Dallas “needs” a healthy OBJ … and since he spent nearly a year rehabbing his knee , there are constant questions there.
But if those questions are answered around next Monday when Beckham is scheduled to visit The Star?
Jones also pointed out that the OBJ flight incident has no impact on the team’s “full steam ahead” (coach Mike McCarthy’s words) interest in the star receiver.
“It’s very real,” Jones said in describing his phone visit with Beckham. “Great competition. He feels confident. He feels good about himself. We think he can do well with us.”
Jones also said of the incident at the airport, “His judgment, his behavior is not an issue for him. He is for many. It is not for him.”
So … if he passes doctors and other obstacles (money, other bidders) are dealt with?
“We have to have this year,” Jones said. “It is very important. This year must be a big part of it.”
NOV 28 OBJ FLIGHT-LESS Odell Beckham Jr., early Sunday, tweeted about the unique event without specifically saying,
“Comedy hour,” he said about… something.
Maybe this RUMOR / VIDEO is what he’s talking about… Did the Police Just Remove OBJ from the Airplane?
The Dallas Cowboys, one of the star’s biggest free agents, have repeatedly insisted that OBJ’s “diva” reputation is baseless.
We’ll see what the airport police say about that… which is…
So, the flight attendants thought he was sick because they couldn’t wake him up to fasten his seat belt. He refused to leave the plane when asked. … until the police arrived.
Oh, and by the way, no, according to the passenger with the video, this incident did not happen at DFW Airport, as some have thought. The passengers were reportedly on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles and “the plane was coming down the runway but we (returned) to the gate due to a problem” …
NOV 25 OBJ SETS MEETINGS The Dallas Cowboys have made headlines regarding free receiver Odell Beckham Jr. with his scheduled visit with them. Well, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that he had a “great visit” over the phone on Thanksgiving with OBJ.
But there are still plenty of teams on Beckham’s list as he prepares to begin his free agent travels. … Yes, the Cowboys have company.
That’s the word from Josina Anderson of CBS Sports, who on Friday reported that Beckham has firm plans to visit three fans … and to do so in this order …
It is our understanding that the visit to Dallas is scheduled for Monday, December 5th. So the seasons of the Giants and Bills seem to be just around the corner.
Anderson also reported that Beckham, who has been nursing a knee injury, is in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens. It is also believed that the San Francisco 49ers could be in contention for the services of the two-time All-Pro wide receiver, who is looking for a long-term “home” (and contract), with the assumption that he could be questioned . for $20 million APY.
The Bills’ hiring of OBJ was suggested by Von Miller, his Rams’ Super Bowl teammate, with Miller in the news as he deals with a knee injury sustained in the Thanksgiving win over Detroit.
NOV 24 OBJ SETS COWBOYS DAY It’s the day!
Both the Cowboys and Giants are willing to host a visit with Odell Beckham Jr., but we already knew that. Now for some football progress: Beckham will visit with the Cowboys on Monday, December 5th, according to Jay Glazer.
It looks like the Giants have yet to pick a date, but they are on Beckham’s wish list. The Bills, Niners and Chiefs could also be here … although those organizations haven’t said much about it as much as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his endorsement.
Beckham is believed to be healthy after recovering from his knee and is reportedly seeking a long-term contract worth around $20 million APY, all of which, as he puts it, for “house.”
And in DFW? The house search will continue on December 5.
NOV 23 TP WINS AWARD There’s no denying it: Tony Pollard has become perhaps the most intimidating weapon in the Cowboys offense, and this week we’re getting noticed. He was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his strong performance in Dallas’ 40-3 win over Minnesota.
TP numbers? He had a career-high 189 scrimmages (109 receiving, 80 rushing) and two TDs on Sunday.
Our friend at PFF, Marcus Mosher, writes: “Tony Pollard’s breakout season is upon us. That has suddenly turned Dallas into one of the NFL’s most dangerous offenses, one that feeds Arguably the best player in the league right now.”
In the past four games, the Cowboys have scored 141 points per game and averaged 412.8 yards of offense. It’s better than where they were last year when they were the NFL’s No. 1 offense.
Something to do with Dak Prescott’s return, of course. But as the Cowboys prepare to host the Giants on Thanksgiving in a battle between the two teams at 7-3 in the NFC East? Yes, it has a lot to do with Tony Pollard too.
NOV 22 BRADY IN TEXAS PROBLEM? The Texas State Securities Board has reportedly expanded its investigation into the operations and collapse of cryptocurrency platform FTX to include the activities of celebrities such as NFL’s Tom Brady and NBA’s Stephen Curry.
Bloomberg News first reported the latest in the investigation, which is looking into a possible crime.
“Anyone who provides investment advice in Texas is generally required to be registered and generally must provide all known information,” the Texas State Securities Board said via The Texas Tribune. “In the state of Texas, there is no separate justice system or regulation for celebrities.”
This comes after news of a high-profile indictment that names Curry and Brady and other celebrities, and says, among others, that they “controlled, promoted, aided and abetted actively” in that project “aggressively sold” FTX – which the file describes as “truly a house of cards” and a “Ponzi scheme.”
NOV 21 RUSSELL WILSON ANOTHER HERSCHEL Cowboys that became the foundation of a three-time Super Bowl champion.
Is “never” happening again in Seattle?
The 1989 Walker trade — widely viewed as the biggest steal in football history — gave the Cowboys the Vikings multiple top picks for a star running back. Among the players drafted by picks received in Minnesota: Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Darren Woodson and Kevin Smith.
And now? The Denver Broncos, like those Vikings, thought he was a “one star.” The Seahawks obliged, landing Russell Wilson for two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and three veteran players.
How’s that for the Broncos? Wilson, as our guy (and former Seahawks guard) Corbin K. Smith writes, is “playing the worst football of his career in the Mile High City, completing less than 60 percent of his possessions.” his passes and threw just seven touchdowns. 10 starts as Denver has disappointed with a 3-7 record and currently sits in last place in the AFC West.”
And how is Seattle doing with re-counting Geno Smith at QB? He is, Smith writes, “a viable MVP candidate leading a 6-4, NFC West-leading team.”
And that doesn’t count all the guys and all the choices and… Well, look deep into Corbin’s how “The Herschel Heist” could never have happened… except maybe it did.
NOV 20 TP NO. 1? Tony Pollard is important. Ezekiel Elliott is important. And as Dallas prepares for today’s Cowboys at Vikings game, there is constant insistence that both backs are important, forever adhering to the idea that “As Zeke goes, so goes Cowboys.”
But NFL Network is suggesting a new sign for Week 11, the idea that Zeke – “light years ahead” of where he was after missing two games with a broken knee – will be “cut back” on the line, with Pollard. “Getting more stuff,” it seems, than Elliott gets down on one knee.
Our suggestion is simple: The script, at least as much as any pre-game ideas, will be the determining factor in who does what.
NOV 18 TANK INJURY ISSUES Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that DeMarcus Lawrence (foot, knee) will be decommissioned today in The Star.
But, he added, “I’m ready to play” in Sunday’s game at the Vikings.
Lawrence, who has a history of playing through injuries, is determined to do it again.
“The right knee hurts more than the legs,” he said. “I’m dealing with a lot of things right now. I’m just trying to stay focused on the task at hand.”
But… you play on Sunday?
Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Anthony Barr are also in line to return to action this weekend.
McCarthy on Zeke: “I expect him to go.”
McCarthy on Barr: “He’s about to play Sunday.”
NOV 17 GUYS NEW AT WORK The Cowboys added two “name” players to their roster through the practice squad, and on Thursday the new guys – defensive end Takk McKinley and receiver Antonio Callaway – took the field here The Star.
Callaway, the former Browns draft pick, is wearing No. 14.
Takk, a former first-round pick with the Falcons, is the No. 59.
NOV 16 Chicago Wants Taco The Chicago Bears signed Taco Charlton off the New Orleans Saints practice squad.
The former Cowboy, the first pick in the 2017 NFL Draft taken by Dallas, played two seasons before being cut. Charlton’s season with the Cowboys was disappointing, collecting just four sacks in 27 games.
His new deal with the Bears now reunites him with current coach Matt Eberflus, the former linebackers coach for the Cowboys when Charlton was drafted.
NOV 16 TAKK IN The Dallas Cowboys took another step. The Cowboys signed Takk McKinley to the practice squad after receiving him for a summer workout.
McKinley is a former first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft taken by the Atlanta Falcons under then-coach Dan Quinn. McKinley played four seasons in Atlanta before playing his last two with the Browns and Rams.
The move comes on the heels of Tuesday’s signing of another “name” player looking to start over as former Browns tight end Antonio Callaway joined the team through the practice squad.
NOV 15 CENTER TRYOUTS The Cowboys have moved UDFA center Alex Lindstrom to (practice-squad) IR and now need help there, a source told CowboysSI.com, with three options now available for tryouts here inside The Star .
Beau Benzschawel played for Wisconsin and was drafted in 2019.
Brock Hoffman is a rookie UDFA out of Virginia Tech.
Michal Menet was drafted by Arizona in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Penn State.
Dallas’ starting center continues to be Tyler Biadasz, with Lindstrom serving as the backup.
NOV 15 ROCK-BOTTOM RAMS The Los Angeles Rams will be without their top weapon for at least four weeks, after selecting star wide receiver Cooper Kupp in place of injured Rams Sean McVay he announced.
Kupp was injured during the Rams’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday because of a sprained ankle he suffered late in the game.
Kupp will miss at least four weeks and will undergo ligament surgery to repair the injury. Recovery from spinal cord surgery is usually five to six weeks, according to reports.
McVay did not ban Kupp for the season.
Kupp is the Rams’ surprising leader in most receiving statistics, and currently sits second in the NFL in receptions (75), fifth in targets (98), fifth in receiving yards (812) and fifth in touchdowns (6 ).
Read more about the “down-to-earth Rams” as they descend into contention in the NFC where the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys are trying to keep pace here.
NOV 13 DALLAS TIED 7-ALL Cowboys at Packers is mostly about Dallas’ ability to get close to the goal line … but also about scoring once in the first quarter and a half.
CeeDee Lamb had a TD catch from QB Dak Prescott as the receiver came out of the backfield…but on a turnover to put Dallas up 14-0, Prescott threw into the end zone.
And with 4:54 left in the first half at Lambeau Field, Aaron Rodgers responded with a TD pass to rookie Christian Watson to tie the score at 7-all.
NOV 12 COWBOYS AND TILLERS? The Los Angeles Chargers are giving up first-round defensive tackle Jerry Tillery — and the Dallas Cowboys, always looking to bolster a good defense (although there are some challenges as they prepare Sunday in Green Bay) could enjoy a part of the action.
But there is a problem – the problem of being too good.
The 6-6, 295-pound Tillery was not welcomed by the Chargers coach this season as he logged just eight games before being waived on Friday. So the first pick of the 2019 NFL Draft will start over somewhere…
But the way the waiver order works, the worst teams get the requests first. And Dallas – with its 6-2 record – will fall to the bottom of the teams that shot him.
The process could begin as early as next week, and teams like the one-win Texans seem like the smartest future winners here.
Taken 28th overall in 2019, Tillery, 26, was in his fourth season with the Chargers after starting 29 of 54 games played, with 106 tackles and 10.5 bags.
NOV 2 TRYOUT SCOOP The Cowboys on Wednesday held 10 practice sessions at The Star in Frisco and we have the list…
Scoop: #Cowboys BIG FA workout at The Star …
More information as we gather if. …
NOV 1 RIDLEY IS CONFUSED … CONVINCED?! Calvin Ridley’s amazing story just keeps getting more amazing.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, in desperate need of a wide receiver, about a year ago were exploring the idea of trading for Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley.
But a few problems hindered him.
First, the talented host left Atlanta citing mental health reasons; he seemed to be considering retirement.
Then, the Falcons traded him to the Eagles — but they willingly pulled out of the deal because the Falcons knew Ridley was about to receive a one-year suspension for gambling on sports. of the NFL.
The Falcons did so in good faith. And now they’re doing something else: He’s been traded to the Jags, who have long been interested in what NFL Network called a “tight end” that could end up getting Atlanta’s second- and fifth-round picks. .
NOV 1 WR DEAL Put this in the category of “Do Something” moves that don’t make much sense – or, at least, wouldn’t make sense for Dallas.
The Bears just traded a second round pick for receiver Chase Claypool who has little production (including just one TD this season and two catches for the Steelers last week) but who was somewhere on Dallas’ radar…
But no. Not for a second round pick. … which may end up being too important for Dallas to consider in an interview with Brandin Cooks, a more proven professional than Claypool.
NOV 1 CHUBB TO MIAMI Bradley Chubb has been traded to the AFC East as the Dolphins rejoin the Buffalo Bills Arms Race. Full story here.
NOV 1 TJ TO MINNY TJ Hockenson is about to see more of the Cowboys. His Lions just played in Dallas … and now, later this month, his Vikings — when the tight end was just traded there — will see the Cowboys again. Full story here.
NOV 1 DE COST The Cowboys continue to be linked to a quick trade rumor (see Bradley Chubb) … not that we fully see the idea.
But if it happens, it’s a lesson to know the price.
We know it because the Los Angeles Rams offer for Panthers edge Brian Burns is, by. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, with two first-round picks.
It appears that the Panthers rejected the Rams’ offer of those two first-rounders because they would come in 2024 and 2025; that’s all the Rams have.
But it might show how much Carolina doesn’t want to lose their starting quarterback.
It might suggest just how unlikely it is for Dallas to go this route.
NOV 1 JOKER Kareem Hunt was fresh off Cleveland’s 32-13 win over Cincinnati on “Monday Night Football” and it was Halloween. So it made sense that he would celebrate in his own way.
“I mean, I’m up for anything, man,” Hunt said, per NFL.com. “I’m a footballer and this is a business. So I’m ready to do whatever they decide with me.”
“That could go somewhere else or here, whatever. I love the game of football,” said Hunt, who also must love being the “Joker” on Halloween. since he did his interviews after his game. “The mask associated with Batman”.
OCT 31 HUNT IN THE NFC EAST? The Philadelphia Eagles, according to multiple rumors, are interested in Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt. There is a suggestion that the Browns will move the former NFL champion and their backup running back, possibly for a fourth-round pick, and that Hunt will serve in Philly as a backup to Miles Sanders.
NFL analyst Jay Glazer noted that he could see the Eagles making a trade for a running back, which lends credence — if not reason — to the rumors. Part of the reason for Hunt’s displeasure in Cleveland is that he is Nick Chubb’s starting quarterback…why would he want to keep Sanders’ money?
Say this about Philly, though: at 7-0, a roster that’s being built is the product of a lot of right moves.
OCT 31 ‘EMBARASSED’ ROQUAN TRADED The Chicago Bears were handed a 49-29 loss by the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, something star quarterback Roquan Smith found “embarrassing.”
And now Smith is traded to the Baltimore Ravens. … and in doing so jumps from a 3-5 NFC champion to a 5-3 AFC champion.
The Bears will reportedly get a second baseman and a fifth baseman as the Ravens will work on a long-term extension for the young talent.
OCT 31 BRANDIN COOKS TIES In two recent interviews with Texans sources, the organization continues to downplay the idea of trading receiver Brandin Cooks.
And there are reasons against him moving, since 1) we believe that Houston can ask for a second-round pick and 2) he has a price tag of $ 18 million locked in for 2023.
But would he help Dallas or another contending team? Undoubtedly the “take-the-top-off” doctor who succeeded in Houston (in seven starts this year the 29-year-old has 32 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown) despite the shaky QB play.
He is a perennial 1,000-yard rusher and his name has appeared in two media outlets, Dallas and New York. Are the Cowboys really interested in spending the money needed there?
OCT 31 STEPHEN JONES REACHES OBJ? Despite Jerry Jones’ “itchiness” and “risky attitude,” COO Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are “comfortable” throughout.
But then Stephen added: “And there are guys who don’t belong to anyone out there.”
Stephen’s words, and our “who’s” list, are here.
OCT 31 FOLLOWING UP TO ACTION ACTIONS? The Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the NFL face Tuesday afternoon’s trade deadline … and CowboysSI.com’s one-on-one with Jerry Jones leaves our own Mike Fisher believing that Jerry has “The Itch.”
Fish writes: “Jerry Jones has “the itch.”
“My 32 years of writing Jones’ season in Dallas come with no guarantees about what the Cowboys will do between now and Tuesday’s deadline. “Who”? “What”? A public speaking host”?
“Those dances can’t just be danced; Jerry – and Stephen Jones and Will McClay, who are directly involved – need willing partners.
“But this I can say, after many late press games and elevator rides on the way to AT&T’s Jones Stadium:
“Jerry Jones wants there to be an opportunity where he can use his confidence in ‘his feelings and courage and instinct and willingness to go ahead and take risks.’
OCT 31 NEW NAME CALLS IN ENGLAND Amidst the many reports that the Patriots have been calling multiple players, names like Isaiah Wynn, running back Damien Harris and safety Jabril Peppers have been mentioned among the rumors. the latest surrounding the Patriots. It’s also being reported that New England has recently received inquiries about all of the Pats’ linebackers, including Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.
OCT 31: 10 NAMES Sunday was a big rumor day, and the Buffalo Bills were in the news a lot. The Buffalo News created a list of the top 10, and here are our answers about Costs and more…
1) Rams running back Cam Akers. Sources of L.A. told us that the two parties were “finished”.
2) Texans receiver Brandin Cooks. Cooks is the top weapon, but the Texans, according to the source, would only listen if the second pick was offered. That, and Cooks’ 2023 salary of $18 million makes this a non-starter.
3) Panthers guard Austin Corbett. He has ties to the Bills coaching staff and the Panthers are in the midst of a fire sale. (Although they insist they are not.)
4) Panthers offensive lineman Cam Erving. Erving is a former Cowboy, and respectfully, just a guy.
5) Lions safety DeShon Elliott. Based on his time with the Lions — with a defense that appears to be giving up 35 points at the drop of a hat — this isn’t very impressive.
6) Chiefs running back Antonio Gibson. Washington’s front office is on record denying it wants to deal Gibson. (We can throw Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt into this category as well — as a name worth checking out, at least.)
7) Falcons center Matt Hennessy. A serious role for the Principles? Of course. But remember that going into Week 8, the Falcons are — rather surprisingly — in first place in the NFC South … which means they have no reason to be underdogs.
8) Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy. A 2020 first-round pick, Jeudy might like to get out of Denver’s mess. However, the Broncos would be wise to ask for a very high trade price here.
There are some Cowboys related rumors here but we say there is more smoke than fire.
By the way, and this goes for Cooks and for the Steelers’ Chase Claypool and maybe for free agent Odell Beckham Jr., too: We wonder if the Bills’ front office is too concerned with the idea of adding Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis as. The community is clear that?
9) Bears running back David Montgomery. He is in the final year of his rookie contract, so this will be a rental. Do the Bills need to add a power back? And if so, don’t they have one in the mothballed Zack Moss?
10) 49ers safety Tarvarius Moore. The 49ers see themselves as competitors, not “sellers” — as evidenced by their willingness to pay Christian McCaffrey a price the Bills couldn’t match.
OCT 30 AIKMAN GETTING CARE A member of the Dallas Cowboys’ “family” is trying to help out emotionally – and his name is “Troy Aikman.”
“You better have an offense in today’s NFL if you’re going to win games,” Aikman told TMZ when asked if his former team should look to add a wide receiver. “The way you’re offended is that you have weapons, and you have to have more than one or two.”
Is Aikman’s ex-Michael Irvin in the mood for an alternative, free-agent signing Odell Beckham Jr.?
It looks like Irvin’s boyfriend was quoted. Aikman has no name; he just has an educated opinion. The hosting business, Aikman said, “will definitely help them.”
The important thing is to pay attention: Aikman made these comments about Dallas’ “lack of offense” before the Cowboys beat the Bears 49-29 to move to 6-2 in the first.
OCT 26 ONE? We have to say that Dallas’ deal for Johnathan Hankins actually preceded the Eagles’ trade for Robert Quinn. So no, Dallas did not “respond” to the “arms race” there. But that doesn’t mean some don’t want another reaction, especially with rumors swirling that Philly could pursue Saints star running back Alvin Kamara.
