Cowboys open as 3-point favorites on Tom Brady’s Bucs in playoffs: NFL Tracker

JAN 8: COWBOYS FINAL FAVORITES The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who began their march to the division title with a Week 1 win at Dallas, now host a rematch on Wild Card Weekend … and the Cowboys opened as a three-point favorite.

The Buccaneers clinched the NFC South a week ago, and the events of Week 18 — including Dallas’ 26-6 thrashing at Washington — locked the 12-5 Cowboys into fifth place as the top Wild Card team.

Times and dates for the first round of the playoffs will be announced late Sunday, but the Bucs will host Dallas next weekend at Raymond James Stadium.

And yes, will be there!

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of the loss at Washington and the anticipation ahead: “We can eat away at it all week. If that doesn’t get you ready to play in six or seven days, nothing else will.”

8. JAN HURTS VS. WEBB Philadelphia Eagles pitcher Jalen Hurts will start Sunday’s regular season finale against the New York Giants; unsurprisingly, sore shoulder or not, the Eagles need to win to hold off the surging Cowboys.

And the giants? Looks like someone explained something to first-year head coach Brian Daboll, who previously talked about “playing to win,” even though the Giants (like Philly and Dallas) are bound for the playoffs, they have no reason to risk injuries here

So … New York will give practice squad quarterback Davis Webb a job.

The Eagles are 13-3 but have lost two straight and must win or tie against the Giants to clinch first place in the NFC and earn a first-round bye. In the unlikely event the Eagles lose, the 12-4 Cowboys can jump ahead with a win in Washington today. they could also get the No. 1 seed if the Cowboys (12-4) lose to the Commanders and the 49ers (12-4) lose to the Cardinals.

Webb, who was a third-round draft pick by the Giants in 2017, has never attempted a pass in an NFL regular season game.

6. JAN JERRY ON LEAGUE VOTE ON AFC TITLE GAME NFL owners have voted to approve proposed AFC playoff changes highlighted by the possibility of a neutral-site AFC Championship game, according to the NFL Network on Friday. …

As Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones predicted, it will happen a little earlier in the day.

“We’re going to vote to adjust our circumstances because of the concerns and what we had to adjust because of Damar Hamlin’s injuries, and that will be done and should be done by noon,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan.

Jones explained his perspective on how the league must balance the importance of home field advantage with the circumstances involving the fall of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin.

“This is a critical time,” Jones said. “The home field advantage that you get from how your team has played throughout the year are all very valuable things — that have no benefit … right now. (They shouldn’t) be considered (and not) traded off (vs. ) sensitivity with Hamlin injuries.”

The changed AFC playoff schedule comes after Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest in the first quarter of Monday’s game with the Cincinnati Bengals, forcing the game to be canceled.

You can read all the details about the new playoffs and the AFC title plan here.

JAN 4 ‘NO CLUB’ Cowboys “Lion-backer” Micah Parsons has a nasty cut on his hand, as first reported by CowboysSI.som, and the laceration – along with what we know was considerable swelling – caused them to have to to play in last week’s win against the Titans with a liner so massive we all referred to it as “the club”.

Wednesday’s injury report is now out and Micah is out … And he doesn’t expect the injury to limit him Sunday in Week 18 at the Commanders.

“We’re going to be full,” Parsons said. “No club.”

JAN 4 WASHINGTON COMMANDER BENCH WENTZ One week after quarterback Carson Wentz replaced Taylor Heinicke as the team’s starter, Washington is reportedly changing direction.

While Heinicke is expected to be the starter, the same report says that rookie Sam Howell, who will make his NFL debut in the final week of the regular season, will also get playing time.

For now, the team has not confirmed. .. and sorry, the report is not quite right.

Carson Wentz remains on the bench (again) … though coach Ron Rivera says he has “no regrets” about the fateful decision to start Wentz in last week’s playoff-killing loss to the Browns.

UPDATE: Howell is getting first-team reps at Washington practice right now…

And Howell will be Sunday’s starter.

The 7-8-1 Chiefs are probably wise to start the experiment with rookie Howell, as there’s little more to accomplish against 12-4 Dallas, which is playoff-bound and still trying to win the NFC East.

JANUARY 3 NFL NFL Buffalo Bills Damar Hamlin’s on-field security breach rocked the sports world Monday night when the 24-year-old went into cardiac arrest during the first quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paycor Stadium.

Hamlin remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. And on Tuesday, the Dallas Cowboys and all NFL teams showed their support for the second-year safety, as all of the league’s and its teams’ Twitter profile pictures were changed to jersey No. 3 with the message “Pray for Damar.”

The game between the Bengals and Bills was temporarily suspended before being completely postponed on Monday night. On Tuesday, the league revealed that the game would not be played this week and that there was no current schedule for resuming.

JAN 3 NFL REVEALS PLAN The Week 17 game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will not be played this week because of a concussion on the field by Bills safety Damar Hamlin, the league announced Tuesday.

The NFL continues to be in regular contact with Damar Hamlin’s medical team, as well as the Bills and Bengals organizations and the NFL Players Association.

After speaking with both teams and NFLPA management, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell informed the clubs today that the Bills-Bengals game will not go ahead this week.

The NFL has not made any decision on whether to resume the game later.

The league made no changes to the Week 18 regular season schedule.

We will continue to provide additional information as it becomes available.

The Dallas Cowboys will thus play the schedule on Sunday afternoon in Washington. See below for more…

JAN 2 COWBOYS-COMMANDERS TIME REVEALED The Dallas Cowboys will play the Washington Commanders at 3:25 p.m. CT on Sunday, the NFL announced today.

The Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles (home vs. Giants) and San Francisco 49ers (home vs. Cardinals) will play their games in the same 3:25 time slot … so neither team will have the advantage of knowledge of playoff setups.

Here’s a breakdown of the scenarios for Dallas, along with the likelihood of the Cowboys opening the playoffs in Tampa Bay.

Also, Sunday Night Football between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field will be on NBC.

JAN 2 WELCOME BACK! “It might be a little early and it might be a little optimistic, but the Dallas Cowboys have an injury-riddled playoff plan.

“We’re going to welcome back three really good football players,” chief operating officer Stephen Jones said Monday during a visit to 105.3 The Fan, with an eye toward the postseason. “Leighton Vander Esch, definitely (Johnathan) Hankins and then if we get (Tyler) Biadasz back … that’s going to be a big plus for our group.”

Linebacker Vander Esch (neck/shoulder) will be out this week in Washington. Veteran tight end Hankins has a shin injury. And starting center Biadasz has a high ankle sprain, with the Cowboys crossing their fingers as they shuffle the O-line for another week.

Said Jones of Biadasz: “I think after spending a full week with him and seeing how he responds to treatment … we’ll just see what the week brings, but we certainly think it’s a real possibility ( medical staff) is ready to play for the first round of the playoffs.”

DEC 28 ME TOO! Dez Bryant has left football to become a family man and businessman, and has not played in the NFL since 2020.

But he’s certainly entertaining the idea of ​​another “retired” Dallas Cowboys big man trying to make a comeback.

According to, Hall of Famer Terrell Owens, 49, called Jerry Jones’ office and asked for a tryout.

“If T.O comes back…sign me to a playoff team…seriously! LFG,” Bryant tweeted.

Bryant, 34, was a Pro Bowl member and had 7,459 receiving yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys. Like Owens, he keeps himself in good shape and … Well, those are fun ideas … but they’re not Cowboys ideas, if you know what we mean.

DEC 26 WHITE ON WHITE Because we know you care…

We can report that this is the week you’ll see a “fresh” look with the iconic Cowboys uniforms, a white “Color Rush” uniform with navy trim…and a white helmet with a new star…

All of that will be revealed in the Week 17 meeting at the Tennessee Titans in Thursday Night Football.

The novelty is subtle. But face masks should pop!

DEC 24 SHUT UP AND PLAY This week, Cowboys linebacker Jayron Kearse basically told his locker room to shut up and play.

Kearse said before Saturday’s visit of the Eagles: “We talked a lot. At this point, we shouldn’t have to talk anymore. We should get down to business. We should take action. The film should do the talking. I really don’t think much more is needed to speak except to do the work.’

So far, Kearse has accomplished that, with two completions largely responsible for Dallas staying in this game. His second…

It led to TD Michael Gallup, another guy who let his game — or in this case, his toes — do the talking for him.

Dallas is tied with 27, and the Eagles are tied for fourth at AT&T Stadium.

DEC 21 Cowboys and Eagles injury reports available for Wednesday. DNP highlights again with Micah Parsons and Jalen Hurts.

No matter who plays on Saturday, the Cowboys promise to be ready.

“I think everybody in the locker room is looking forward to this rematch,” Dak Prescott said, adding, “We understand (the Eagles) are playing their asses off because they’re having a hell of a season. …

“If you just want one more shot, make sure you give it your all.”

DEC 21 MICAH RESIGNS AGAIN Micah Parsons will appear on Wednesday’s practice/injury report, just as he did on Tuesday, listing the “Lions linebacker” as DNP (illness).

“Micah Parsons won’t be with us today … It happens,” coach Mike McCarthy said of the illness miss.

The Cowboys host the Eagles on Christmas Eve.

DEC 20 Malik Jefferson, waived off 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, can provide depth in the building following the short-term injury to Leighton Vander Esch.

DEC 20 DALLAS AT DALLAS The Eagles announced Tuesday that Dallas Goedert has been activated from IR. … Just in time for him to play against his hated namesake, the Dallas Cowboys.

Goedert has been out since Week 10 with a shoulder injury, but returns to a 13-1 Eagles team with 544 yards and three touchdowns on 43 catches in nine games, a top complement to receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Philly will likely be without QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for Saturday’s game at 10-4 Dallas.

DEC 18 KELVIN BENCHED The Cowboys are suddenly struggling defensively.

First, they pulled starting corner Kelvin Joseph after he gave up two consecutive touchdown catches. … so Nahshon Wright entered the game.

Meanwhile, Donovan Wilson and Leighton Vander Esch are injured.

Add it all up? Dallas was up 27-10, but Trevor Lawrence capitalized on some sloppiness from Dak Prescott to throw three TD passes … and the Jags lead 31-27 with 10 minutes left.

DEC 18 LVE HURT Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch was escorted to the locker room in Jacksonville and is now ruled out as any possibility of returning to the game against the Jags.

Amid speculation of a possible concussion, the Cowboys say it’s a neck injury.

Micah Parsons was dropped and Ezekiel Elliott got a TD on a takeaway and the Cowboys led 21-10 in the third as the win clinched a playoff berth.

DECEMBER 18 COACH TO HOSPITAL Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees, 73, was carted off the field in New Orleans today during pregame warmups after a Saints player accidentally bumped into him.

The Falcons say Pees — who remained on the ground for a considerable amount of time after the collision — was “alert and responsive” when he was taken to a local hospital for medical evaluation.

DEC 14 ‘STAND BY’ Jerry Jones wants it.

The Cowboys owner was asked by DFW media late Wednesday afternoon about the ideal timing of signing Odell Beckham Jr.

“Sooner rather than later,” he said.

“I don’t want to talk about it, but I’m sticking with it,” Jones said. But wait. Stay ready.”

Jones, even though the Cowboys just signed another vet wideout in T.Y. Hilton, asked 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday if the fact that OBJ can’t play today (due to his knee reportedly “ticking with a time bomb”) precludes a deal.

“If you include the playoffs, I wouldn’t go that far,” 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 an outstanding receiver … as you well know, he’s not ready to play. He’s a receiver that I think would be a good fit at any time . There will continue to be interest in Odell.”

Important (click above): The two sides discussed contract parameters on Monday.

DEC 14 TWO KEY MOVES The Cowboys placed Johnathan Hankins (pec strain) and Terence Steele (torn ACL and MCL) on injured reserve.

Steele is out for the season. Hankins has an optimistic chance of being activated during the playoffs.

DEC 14 OBJ PATIENT? Is Odell Beckham Jr. “free agent” … for spring 2023.

The Dallas Cowboys still have the idea of ​​signing OBJ now, with the hope that he can contribute in the NFL playoffs — and perhaps offering a contract that would secure his services for years to come, especially as his “ticking time bomb.” the knee is in his past.

In fact, it appears the Cowboys and Beckham’s camp were discussing the parameters of a deal in Dallas on Monday. Playing anywhere this season gets smaller.

But ESPN is now reporting that “multiple” NFL teams believe the 30-year-old will most likely wait until the offseason to make a deal.

Executives whose teams have done their homework on Beckham expect him to wait because, as one put it, ‘he’s the prize’ in the free agent class,” according to ESPN. “Beckham is not expected to be ready to play football until the playoffs, and joining a new team and attacking in the playoffs carries the risk of injury.”

The Cowboys are aware of all this and just bolstered their receiver room by signing veteran T.Y. Hilton.

Can teams be rewarded for throwing three-time Pro Bowler OBJ on the field in the playoffs? maybe. But OBJ may not receive the financial reward until he proves his knee is healthy … making him a “prize” next March.

DEC 13 BEAS TO BILLS Could the Buffalo Bills be in the process of establishing another gathering place? A few liked tweets and reports of airport sightings have sparked Internet rumors of former Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley returning to Orchard Park.

And now it’s on the air, NFL Network is reporting that Beasley is signing with Buffalo.

WIVB-TV reported on Twitter Monday night that Beasley was back in Buffalo, with their reporter citing a tweet from Beasley that claimed Beasley was on a flight from Baltimore to Buffalo.

Beasley, 33, a native of Little Elm, came to the NFL out of SMU with the Cowboys before moving to Buffalo. He retired from the NFL just two games into his tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in early October.

In three seasons with the Bills (2019-21), the frequent “Beas” posted 2,348 yards and 11 touchdowns on 231 catches and became one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.

DEC 12, MONDAY MEDICAL In addition to offensive lineman Terence Steele, now out for the year with a serious injury, defensive end Johnathan Hankins is dealing with a strained hamstring for Sunday’s win over the Texans, which coach Mike McCarthy believes is “significant.”

The Cowboys believe defensive lineman Dorance Armstrong, who wore a protective boot after Sunday’s game, could play with a sore ankle this week in Jacksonville.

The loss of Steele is a big one, as the Cowboys now plan to shuffle the O-line, possibly with a young Josh Ball and not-so-young Jason Peters rotating in on the right side.

Said McCarthy of Steele: “A rock of a man.”

DEC 11 INJURY TROUBLE The Dallas Cowboys recorded a last-minute 27-23 victory over the Texans on Sunday, but suffered a few losses along the way.

Most disturbing: Starting right tackle Terence Steele left the game with a knee injury that the Cowboys say they are “very concerned about” as he undergoes an MRI.

Additionally, linebacker Johnathan Hankins injured his shoulder and Jake Ferguson suffered a head/neck injury.

Steele’s injury is the most problematic, as the Cowboys first traded him for youngster Josh Ball before turning to veteran Jason Peters at right tackle.

Next week in Jacksonville, Peters could be at right tackle, with Tyron Smith returning to take over at left guard.

Trevon Diggs also left briefly with a thumb injury — and now says he’s playing through injuries to both thumbs. And Dorance Armstrong is wearing a protective boot after spraining his ankle.

DEC 11 COWBOYS OPEN HOT The combination of an offensive line that bullies the Texans and Tony Pollard’s skills that fit nicely into the Cowboys’ fun game design led to a fast start for Dallas over the Texans.

Pollard had an 11-yard field goal to cap the opening nine-play, 76-yard TD drive in Week 14 at AT&T Stadium.

DECEMBER 10 FINE Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott were each fined $13,261 for their TD celebration using a Salvation Army Red Kettle against the Colts.

Money well spent, Cowboys Nation will surely agree. Right. Bunny?

“It’s worth the awareness we bring to the Salvation Army,” he said.

9. DEC WHAT THE HELL? Sean McVay is a tough guy. But even the Los Angeles Rams coach couldn’t quite grasp what he had just witnessed.

The coach looked confused by the outcome, a 17-16 win over Las Vegas on Thursday night that featured all sorts of antics and was capped off by Ram-for-a-day (or so) QB Baker Mayfield making a long- off-the-field TD drive with 1:45 to play.

“The way we drew it,” McVay said, adding, “I’m still kind of thinking, ‘What the hell is going on now?’

“I don’t know if I could have written anything better than that,” said Mayfield, who was waived by Carolina a few days ago and then inserted just a few plays into “Football Night Football” (with Matthew Stafford injured). and. “It’s a damn good story, I’ll be honest with you.”

Here’s what’s been going on… stay tuned!

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks – a target of the Cowboys before this year’s deadline – has a hamstring injury and is now expected to miss his second straight game. … this Sunday at noon in Dallas.

And… the trend is that fellow starter Nico Collins will also miss the game due to a foot injury.

Houston is 1-10-1 and already short on weapons against 9-3 Dallas.

DECEMBER 7 OUT FOR YEAR Buffalo Bills star Von Miller, who had hoped to return to action in the coming weeks, instead underwent surgery for a torn ACL in his knee and is now out for the season.

This was announced by head coach Sean McDermott at team headquarters on Wednesday.

A DFW native and an offseason target of the Cowboys before signing with Buffalo, Miller has a long-term contract with the Bills … and is sure to stay in the news for a while as a key figure in Buffalo’s recruitment of injured receivers. Odell Beckham Jr., the rival Dallas Cowboys there.

DEC 5 THE TEXAS RACE?! No, Week 14 doesn’t feature two “rivals” between the Houston Texans playing the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Sunday at noon.

Cities “love to hate each other”. But the teams and their fans? Cowboys Nation doesn’t care much about the Texans … and neither do Texans fans right now.

The Texans had just lost to the Cleveland Browns, 27-14, and not even Deshaun Watson’s controversial return to Houston mattered to the crowd.

The Texans have a 1-10-1 record.

Coming off a 54-19 win over Indy, the Cowboys play on Sunday Night Football as they look to improve their 9-3 record and keep pace with the Eagles. Dallas has won two in a row and four of its last five, and some pundits have the Cowboys as heavy 17-point favorites in this one.

The Cowboys now have a habit of scoring 30 points or more. The Texans haven’t scored more than 17 points in their last six games. So… you bet!

DEC 4 JIMMY G IS FIRED The 49ers say QB Jimmy Garoppolo is questionable to return for the game against the Dolphins due to injury. Brock Purdy now at QB. And yes …

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: Following 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 will unveil a new look for their iconic boots with red, white and blue accents on Sunday night as part of the team’s “Salute to the Job” weekend … which you can read more about here when Dallas takes on the Indianapolis at AT&T Stadium.

But besides that, Christmas is coming and the Cowboys are scheduled to host the Eagles on Christmas Eve…

That’s why the Cowboys cheerleaders need to dress up, and they will, as they showed off their special holiday-themed outfits.

DEC 3: DEION’S DECISION Deion Sanders has officially announced that he will be the next head coach at Colorado.

Sanders spent three seasons at Jackson St. went 27-5 and landed some of the top recruits in the country.

The announcement came just moments after Sanders led Jackson State to its second straight SWAC title.

Jackson State defeated Southern 43-24 in the title game to complete the school’s first undefeated season.

“There were many highly qualified and impressive candidates interested in being the next head football coach at Colorado, but none of them had the pedigree, knowledge and ability to connect with student-athletes like Deion Sanders,” Colorado athletic director Rick George said in a statement. “Not only will Coach Prime energize our fan base, but I am confident he will lead our program back to national prominence while leading a team of high quality and high character.”

Sanders, 55, played 14 seasons in the NFL, five of them with the Cowboys. He had 159 tackles, 14 interceptions and two touchdowns during his tenure in Dallas. Sanders was a member of the 1995 Cowboys championship team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX. In 2011, he was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

He has already begun recruiting staff and players in Colorado.

DEC 2 ANTONIO BROWN ISSUES Antonio Brown occasionally floats the idea of ​​returning to the NFL, sometimes suggesting the Dallas Cowboys as his employer.

That won’t happen. Instead, Brown is dealing with real-life issues as he faces legal action once again following a recent alleged domestic incident that led to an arrest warrant being issued for the former NFL standout.

Brown, 34, is 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 his South Tampa home.

On Thursday night, NBC News reported that Tampa police were still trying to arrest Brown after he made multiple attempts to arrest him outside his home. The department told NBC that Brown “is not communicating with officers.”

Tampa’s WFTS-TV reported that officers were at Brown’s home for more than an hour, using a megaphone to call him from his front door. A Tampa police affidavit said Brown and the woman were involved in a verbal altercation that turned physical earlier this week, with Brown allegedly saying “if she came into the house, he would shoot her in front of the police,” according to to court documents.

DECEMBER 1 Bye, OBJ. It is already known that the Los Angeles Rams were not in the game when it came to re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. But now there is physical evidence…

The Associated Press reveals that the former locker room in the team’s headquarters that was used and saved for a free agent receiver … is gone.

“The locker that has Odell Beckham Jr’s name on it at the Rams practice complex since last season is now empty again,” Beacham said. “They’re not sparing OBJ’s place anymore.”

OBJ embarks on a suitors tour today with a visit with the Giants on Thursday, a visit with the Bills on Friday and a visit with the Cowboys on Monday.

29. NEW NOW, OBJ! Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on @1053thefan says the team’s pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. is almost a must.

“This year has to be a big part of it,” Jones said. “We’ve got six regular season games and the playoffs, so I think it’s pretty much the whole show ahead of us. We’ve got to have a situation where he can really contribute now.”

Now, let’s make sure we get this right: Part of what Jones seems to be saying is that Dallas “needs” a healthy OBJ … and with him spending nearly a year rehabbing his knee, there are lingering questions.

But if you get the answers to these questions around next Monday, when Beckham is expected to visit The Star?

Jones also indicated that OBJ’s plane crash has no bearing on the team’s “full steam ahead” (coach Mike McCarthy’s words) interest in the star receiver.

“Very genuine,” Jones said, describing his phone visit with Beckham. “Very competitive. He feels confident. He feels good about himself. We think he can do very well with us.”

Jones also said of the airport incident: “His judgment, his behavior is not an issue with him. It is with a lot of people. It is not with him.”

So…if he passes the medical exams and clears the other hurdles (money, other providers)?

“We have to have this year,” Jones said. “It’s very important. This year has to be a big part of it.”

28. Odell Beckham Jr. tweeted early Sunday about the momentous experience, without being specific,

“Comedy hour,” he said of… something.

Maybe this RUMOR / VIDEO is what he’s talking about… Did the cops just remove OBJ from the plane?

The Dallas Cowboys, one of the suitors of the star free agent, have often insisted that OBJ’s “diva” reputation is unfounded.

We’ll see what the airport cops have to say about this…which is…

So the flight crew thought he was sick because they couldn’t wake him up to fasten his seat belt. When asked, he refused to leave the plane. … until the police arrive.

Oh, and by the way, no, according to the passenger in the video, this incident did not happen at DFW Airport as some have speculated. The passengers were reportedly on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles and “the plane was taxiing down the runway but (we) turned back to the gate due to a problem”…

NOVEMBER 25 OBJ DELIVERS MEETINGS The Dallas Cowboys have made headlines regarding free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. through his scheduled visit to them. Well, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that he had a “good visit” on the phone with OBJ on Thanksgiving Day.

But there are still more teams on Beckham’s list as he’s ready to start visiting as a free agent. … And yes, the Cowboys have company.

That’s according to CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson, who reported Friday that Beckham has solidified plans to visit three suitors … and in that order …

It is understood that the visit to Dallas is scheduled for Monday, December 5th. So it looks like the Giants and Bills meetings will be right around the corner.

Anderson also reports that Beckham, who has been rehabbing a knee injury, is also in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens. The San Francisco 49ers are also believed to be in the running for the services of the two-time All-Pro receiver, who is looking for a long-term “home” (and a contract), with speculation that he could be asked for 20 million APY.

Bills recruiter OBJ was instrumental to Rams Super Bowl teammate Von Miller, and Miller is now in the news as he deals with his knee injury suffered in the Thanksgiving win at Detroit.


Both the Cowboys and Giants are expected to host a visit from Odell Beckham Jr., but we already knew that. Now comes the ball rolling: Beckham will visit the Cowboys on Monday, Dec. 5, according to Jay Glazer.

The Giants don’t appear to have set a date yet, but they are on Beckham’s wish list. The Bills, Niners and Chiefs could be in there too … although those organizations haven’t been as vocal about it all as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his franchise have been.

Beckham is reportedly healthy after rehabbing his knee and is reportedly looking for a long-term deal worth around $20 million as part of his search for what he says is “home.”

And in DFW? The apartment search takes place on December 5.

NOVEMBER 23 TP RECEIVES AWARD It’s undeniable: Tony Pollard has become perhaps the most feared weapon in the Cowboys’ offense, and this week he was recognized for it. He was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his outstanding contribution in Dallas’ 40-3 victory over Minnesota.

TP numbers? On Sunday, he had a career-high 189 yards (109 receiving, 80 rushing) and two TDs.

Our friend at PFF, Marcus Mosher, writes: “Tony Pollard’s breakout season is upon us. It has suddenly turned Dallas into one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL, harboring arguably the best player in the league right now.”

Over the past four games, the Cowboys have scored 141 points per game and are averaging 412.8 yards of offense. That’s better than a year ago when they were the NFL’s No. 1 offense.

This, of course, has to do with the return of Dak Prescott. But as the Cowboys prepare to host the Giants on Thanksgiving in a 7-3 battle of two NFC East teams? Yes, it has a lot to do with Tony Pollard as well.

22. NEW BRADY IN TEXAS TROUBLE? The Texas Securities and Exchange Commission has reportedly advanced its investigation into the operations and bankruptcy of cryptocurrency platform FTX to now include the activities of celebrities such as the NFL’s Tom Brady and the NBA’s Stephen Curry.

Bloomberg News was the first to report on the latest investigation, which is looking into potential securities law violations.

“Anyone who gives investment advice in Texas is generally required to be registered and generally required to make a true disclosure of all known material facts,” the Texas State Securities Board said, via The Texas Tribune. “There is no different justice system or regulation in Texas for people who are celebrities.”

This comes on the heels of news of a class-action lawsuit filed that names Curry and Brady and other celebrities and alleges that, among other things, they “either supervised, encouraged, aided or actively participated” in an alleged scheme where they “aggressively marketed” FTX — which described by the filing as “a veritable house of cards” and a “Ponzi scheme.”

NOVEMBER 21 RUSSELL WILSON ANOTHER HERSCHEL When all the dust settled and all the onion skins were peeled off, the NFL world reached a universal agreement: There will never, ever be another trade like the Herschel Walker deal that they created so cleverly by the Cowboys that it became the foundation of the three-time Super Bowl champions.

Is “never again” happening in Seattle?

The 1989 trade of Walker – considered the greatest heist in football history – gave the Cowboys the Vikings several top picks for the star running back. Among the players selected with the Minnesota picks: Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Darren Woodson and Kevin Smith.

And now? The Denver Broncos, like these Vikings, thought they were “one star away.” The Seahawks complied, relieving quarterback Russell Wilson for two first-round picks, two second-round picks and three veterans.

How does that look for the Broncos? Wilson, according to our man (and veteran Seahawks watcher) Corbin K. Smith, “is playing the worst football of his career in the Mile High City, completing less than 60 percent of his passes and throwing just seven touchdown passes in 10 starts as Denver is a disappointing 3-7 and is currently in last place in the AFC West.”

And how is Seattle doing with a rebuilt Geno Smith at QB? He is, Smith writes, “a viable MVP candidate leading an up-and-coming 6-4 team that leads the NFC West.”

And that’s not even counting all the boys and all the chosen ones and… Well, dig into Corbin’s in-depth look at how “The Herschel Robbery” will never happen again… except maybe it just did.

20. NEW TP NO. 1? Tony Pollard is important. Ezekiel Elliott matters. And as Dallas prepares for today’s showdown between the Cowboys and the Vikings, we insist, as always, that both running backs matter, with a perpetual nod to the idea that “as Zeke goes, so go the Cowboys.”

But the NFL Network suggests a new wrinkle for Week 11, the idea that Zeke — “light years ahead” of where he was after missing two games with a dislocated knee — will be “easily back” in the lineup, with Pollard “getting more touches,” seems like Elliott with a knee brace.

Our friendly suggestion: the game’s script, at least as much as any pre-game concepts, will be the determining factor in who does what.

NOVEMBER 18 RESERVOIR INJURY ISSUES Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that DeMarcus Lawrence (foot, knee) will be limited in action today, per The Star.

But he added, “I have every intention of him playing” in Sunday’s game at the Vikings.

Lawrence, who has a history of serious injuries, is really ready to do it again.

“My right knee hurts worse than my feet,” he said. “I’m dealing with so many things right now. I’m just trying to stay focused on the task at hand.”

But… do you play on Sunday?

Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Anthony Barr are also on track to return to the field this weekend.

McCarthy on Zeke: “I expect him to leave.”

McCarthy on Barr: “He’s on track to play on Sunday.”

NOVEMBER 17 NEW GUYS AT WORK The Cowboys added two “name” players to their roster via the practice squad, and on Thursday, the new guys — defensive end Takk McKinley and receiver Antonio Callaway — took the field here at The Star.

Callaway, a former Browns starter, wears 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 time with the Cowboys was a disappointment, with just four sacks in 27 games.

His new contract with the Bears now reunites him with current head coach Matt Eberflus, the former linebackers coach for the Cowboys when Charlton was drafted.

NOVEMBER 16 TAKK AND The Dallas Cowboys made another move. The Cowboys signed defensive end Takk McKinley to the practice squad after hosting him at practice over the summer.

McKinley is a former first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons under then head coach Dan Quinn. McKinley played four seasons in Atlanta before playing the last two with the Browns and Rams.

The move follows Tuesday’s signing of another “name” player looking for a reboot, as former Browns first baseman Antonio Callaway joined the club via the practice squad.

NOVEMBER 15 TRIALS AT CENTER The Cowboys moved rookie UDFA center Alex Lindstrom to (practice squad) IR and now need help there, a source told, with a trio of prospects now getting tryouts here at The Star.

Beau Benzschawel played for Wisconsin and went undrafted in 2019.

Brock Hoffman is a freshman UDFA from 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.

NOVEMBER 15 IN FALL ARIES The Los Angeles Rams will be without their top offensive weapon for at least four weeks after placing star player Cooper Kupp on injured reserve, Rams Sean McVay announced.

Kupp was injured during the Rams’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday with a high ankle sprain he suffered late in the game.

Kupp will be out for at least four weeks and will undergo surgery on the rope to repair the injury. According to reports, recovery from rope surgery usually takes five to six weeks.

McVay did not shut Kupp out during the season.

Kupp is the Rams’ undisputed leader in receiving statistics and currently ranks 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 “bad Rams” who are slipping out of contention in the NFC with the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys trying to keep pace here.

NOVEMBER 13 DALLAS SAVE 7-ALL Cowboys at Packers had a lot to do with Dallas’ ability to get close to the goal line … as well as only scoring once in the first quarter and a half.

CeeDee Lamb has a TD catch from QB Dak Prescott as the receiver swung out of the backfield … but with the change to put Dallas up 14-0, Prescott threw an interception in the end zone.

With 4:54 left in the first half at Lambeau Field, Aaron Rodgers answered with a deep TD pass to freshman Christian Watson to tie the score at 7-all.

12. NEW COWBOYS AND TILLERS? The Los Angeles Chargers are waiving former first-round defensive end Jerry Tillery — and the Dallas Cowboys, always looking to shore up a good defense (albeit with some run-stopping challenges as they prepare for Sunday at Green Bay), would like a piece of that action.

But there is a problem – the problem of being too good.

The 6-6, 295-pound Tillery fell out of favor with the Chargers’ coaching staff this year, recording just eight tackles before being waived Friday. So the first round pick of the 2019 NFL Draft will get a fresh start somewhere…

But the way the waiver works, the worst teams get the first claims. And Dallas – with its 6-2 record – will have a shot at him to swing to the bottom of the teams.

That process could begin as early as next week, and teams like the one-win Texans seem like the most logical upcoming winners here.

Tillery, 26, taken 28th overall in 2019, was in his fourth season with the Chargers after starting 29 of 54 games played, with 106 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

NOVEMBER 2 TRYOUT SCOOP The Cowboys held 10 practices at The Star in Frisco on Wednesday and we have a list of…

Scoop: #Cowboys BIG FA training at The Star…

More information as we gather if. …

1. NEWLY SUSPENDED RIDLEY … TRADE?! The bizarre story of Calvin Ridley keeps getting more bizarre.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, in dire need of a difference maker, explored the idea of ​​trading for hapless Atlanta Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley about a year ago.

But there were some problems along the way.

First, the talented receiver left Atlanta for mental reasons; apparently he was considering retirement.

Then the Falcons planned to trade him to the Eagles — but voluntarily backed out of the deal because the Falcons knew Ridley was about to serve a one-year suspension for betting on NFL games.

The Falcons did this in good faith. And now they’ve done something else: Trade him to the long-interested Jags in what the NFL Network is calling a “complicated” deal that could eventually net Atlanta a second- and fifth-round pick.

1. NEW WR DEAL Find this one in the “Do Something” category of moves that don’t really 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 some middle-of-the-road impact (including one TD catch this year and zero catches on two targets for the Steelers last week), but has been on some level with Dallas’ radar…

But no. Not for a second round pick. … which could prove too expensive for Dallas to consider in talks with Brandin Cooks, a much more proven pro than Claypool.

1. NEW CHUBB IN MIAMI Bradley Chubb has been traded to the AFC East as the Dolphins re-enter their arms race with the Buffalo Bills. Full story here.

1. NEW TJ FOR MINNY TJ Hockenson will be seeing a lot of Cowboys soon. His Lions just played in Dallas … and now, later this month, his Vikings — because the tight end was just traded there — will see the Cowboys again. Full story here.

1. NOV DE COST The Cowboys continue to be linked to high-flying trade rumors (see Bradley Chubb) … without quite understanding the logic.

But it’s instructive to know the price just in case.

We know this because the Los Angeles Rams offer for Panthers edge Brian Burns is through. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, consisting of two first-round picks.

It seems likely that the Panthers declined the Rams’ offer of those two major leaguers because they would come in 2024 and 2025; that’s all Aries has.

But it could also show how much Carolina really doesn’t want to lose its primary sack artist.

And perhaps it hints at how unlikely it is for Dallas to go that route.

NOVEMBER 1 JOKER Kareem Hunt had just been involved in Cleveland’s 32-13 win over Cincinnati on “Monday Night Football” and it was Halloween. So it was only logical that he would celebrate in his own way.

“I mean, I’m ready for anything, man,” Hunt told “I’m a footballer and this is a business. So I’m ready to do whatever they decide with me.”

“It’s either go somewhere else or I’m in, whatever it is, it doesn’t matter. I love the game of football,” said Hunt, who must also love being “The Joker” on Halloween, given that he did his post-game interview in his Batman-like mask.

OCTOBER 31 THE HUNT FOR THE NFC EAST? The Philadelphia Eagles are interested in Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt, according to multiple rumors. There are hints that the Browns would trade the former NFL rushing champion and their backup running back for possibly only the fourth pick, with Hunt serving in Philly as the backup to Miles Sanders.

NFL insider Jay Glazer noted that he could see the Eagles trade for a running back, adding credence — if not logic — to the rumor. Assuming part of the reason for Hunt’s displeasure in Cleveland is that he’s Nick Chubb’s starter … why would he be happy as Sanders’ backup?

Say this about Philly: At 7-0, the roster that was assembled is the result of many, many right moves.

OCTOBER 31 ‘EMBARRASSED’ ROQUAN TRADED The Chicago Bears lost 49-29 to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, something that star quarterback Roquan Smith thought was “embarrassing.”

And now Smith has been traded to the Baltimore Ravens. … and jump from 3-5 NFC loser to 5-3 AFC winner in the process.

The Bears are expected to get a second-rounder and a fifth-rounder as the Ravens work on a long-term extension for the young talent.

OCTOBER 31 BRANDIN COOKS CONNECTS In our two recent conversations with Texas sources, the organization continues to play down the idea of ​​trading receiver Brandin Cooks.

And there are over-the-top reasons to move him, as 1) we believe Houston would demand a second-round pick in return and 2) he has an $18 million cap hit locked in for 2023.

But would he help Dallas or another contending team? Without a doubt, the “best” veteran has thrived in Houston (in seven starts this year, the 29-year-old has 32 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown) despite shaky QB play.

He’s a perennial 1,000-yard guy, and his name has now appeared in two media spots, Dallas and New York. Are the Cowboys really that interested in spending what it takes here?

OCTOBER 31 STEPHEN JONES HINTS AT OBJ? Despite Jerry Jones’ “itch” and “risk-on” mentality, chief operating officer Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are “comfortable” at wideout.

But then Stephen added, “And then there are some guys out there who don’t belong to anybody.”

Stephen’s quote and our “who” list are here.

OCTOBER 31 DANCING TO DEADLINES? The Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the NFL face Tuesday afternoon’s trade deadline … and’s one-on-one with Jerry Jones leaves our own Mike Fisher convinced that Jerry has “The Itch.”

Fish writes, “Jerry Jones has the ‘itch.’

“My 32 years of chronicling the Jones era in Dallas offer no guarantees as to what the Cowboys will do between now and Tuesday’s deadline. ‘Who’?” “What”? Openly considered wide receiver?

“These dances cannot be danced alone; Jerry – and Stephen Jones and Will McClay, who are most directly involved – need willing partners.

“But I can say this after a few postgame media sessions and then a celebratory elevator ride on the way to Jones’ AT&T Stadium suite:

“Jerry Jones wants there to be an opportunity where he can use his confidence in his ‘guts and guts and instinct and willingness to go out there and take that risk.’

OCTOBER 31 NEW ENGLAND NAME CALLING Among reports that the Patriots have called up a number of players, names like right tackle Isaiah Wynn, running back Damien Harris and safety Jabril Peppers have been mentioned among the latest Patriots rumors. New England is also reported to have received inquiries recently about all of the Pats veterans, including Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.

OCTOBER 31: 10 NAMES Sunday was a big day for launch rumors as the Buffalo Bills are very much in the news. The Buffalo News created a top 10 list and here are our answers as they relate to laws and more…

1) Rams running back Cam Akers. Sources in L.A. tell us the two sides are “done” with each other. The problem: Akers doesn’t seem to have much “juice” flowing, making him less of a threat than the top two quarterbacks on Buffalo’s roster.

2) Texans receiver Brandin Cooks. Cooks is a top weapon, but the Texans would only listen if they offered a second-round pick, according to a source. That and Cooks’ 2023 salary of $18 million means this is a non-starter.

3) Panthers guard Austin Corbett. He has a bond with the Bills coaching staff and the Panthers are in fire sale mode. (Even though they insist they’re not.)

4) Panthers forward Cam Erving. Erving is a former cowboy and, respectfully, just a guy.

5) Lions safety DeShon Elliott. Given his time with the Lions — a defense that appears to have given up 35 points right off the bat — that’s not very appealing.

6) Commanders return Antonio Gibson. The front office in Washington officially denies that it wants to trade Gibson. (We’d also put Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt in that category — at least as a name to investigate.)

7) Falcons center Matt Hennessy. A depth piece for the Bills? of course. But remember, entering Week 8, the Falcons are — rather incredibly — in first place in the NFC South … meaning they have no reason to be sellers.

8) Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy. Jeudy, a first-round pick in the 2020 draft, would probably like to leave Denver’s confusion behind. The Broncos, however, would be wise to demand an exorbitant trade price here.

There is gossip related to the Cowboys, but we say it’s more smoke than fire.

By the way, and this goes for Cooks and the Steelers’ Chase Claypool and possibly free agent Odell Beckham Jr.: We wonder if the Bills front office is as obsessed with the idea of ​​adding Stefon Diggs and Gab Davis as the public apparently is?

9) Bears running back David Montgomery. He is in the last year of his rookie contract so this would be a rental. Do the Bills need to add a “power returner”? And if so, do they already have him in naphthain Zack Moss?

10) 49ers safety Tarvarius Moore. The 49ers see themselves as contenders, not “sellers” — as evidenced by their willingness to pay a price for Christian McCaffrey that the Bills wouldn’t match.

OCTOBER 30 AIKMAN SEES NEED A member of the Dallas Cowboys “family” is trying to help with an opinion — and his name is “Troy Aikman.”

“You better have some offense in today’s NFL if you want to win games,” Aikman told TMZ when asked if his old team should add a wide receiver. “You attack by having a weapon and you have to have more than one or two.”

Aikman’s contemporary Michael Irvin has a feel for another idea, signing rehabbing free agent Odell Beckham Jr.?

This seems to be Irvin’s exact type. Aikman has no name; he just has an educated opinion. Aikman said trading a receiver would certainly help them.

Worth noting: Aikman issued these comments about Dallas “needing offense” before the Cowboys beat the Bears 49-29 to move to 6-2 at the bye.

OCT 26 ONE RING? We should note that Dallas’ deal for Johnathan Hankins actually predates the Eagles’ trade for Robert Quinn. So no, Dallas did not “respond” to the “arms race” there. But that doesn’t mean some aren’t calling for a different response, especially with rumors swirling that Philly may be chasing Saints superstar running back Alvin Kamara.
