Jan 22 LAMARI NO Quarterback Lamar Jackson rejected the Ravens’ offer to sign him to a six-year contract with $113 million guaranteed. One way to interpret the numbers?
The guarantees in the contract are less than half of the $230 million deal the Cleveland Browns gave Deshaun Watson last season. And they’re also less than Dak Prescott’s $126 million guaranteed contract with the Cowboys.
Jackson, the 2019 league MVP, has a solid argument for wanting to get paid like the league’s best quarterbacks. There are different ways to look at these numbers… and we don’t know the full value or structure of this offering.
But only in terms of guaranteed money? The Watson deal set the bar. And Jackson — who will continue to be the subject of trade rumors until that is decided — has every reason to want to match that.
21. JAAN DUNGY’S DECISION Former NFL head coach Tony Dungy made headlines this week when he decided to respond to Rep. Sandra Feist’s statement that menstrual products should be available in all school restrooms. The politician noted: “There are many schools. which are moving towards gender neutral bathrooms.
Dungy, who has spoken out about LGBTQ movements in the past, responded.
“It’s nothing,” Dungy wrote on Twitter, sarcastically dispelling the myth. “Some school districts put litter boxes in school bathrooms for students who feel like cats. It’s very important to meet the needs of each student.”
Despite the controversial nature of his comment — which he apparently concedes by deleting the tweet — a Sports Illustrated report says Dungy will be on the air today for NBC’s coverage of the NFL playoffs.
JANUARY 19 PETERS OUT The Dallas Cowboys continue to feel good about safety Jayron Kearse’s availability for Sunday, but Jason Peters will not practice again entering Thursday’s practice at The Star.
Kearse (knee) should be fine for this practice (maybe “limited” and in Sunday’s playoff game at San Francisco. But Peters sat out Monday over Tampa with a hip problem and a smart bet). is that Dallas uses the offensive line alignment that ended this game …
So Peters, 40, sits, rookie Tyler Smith breaks out at left tackle and Connor McGovern gets the start at left guard.
16. JAAN LAMAR JACKSON TRADE? Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson’s expiring contract is a problem … compounded by a knee injury that has kept him out of the last six games … including Sunday’s 24-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
With the offseason underway, the Ravens are searching for answers on what to do with their franchise quarterback. A rumor on Twitter suggests that the Ravens will likely franchise tag Jackson and then trade him.
Are the Atlanta Falcons ahead of the curve?
15 JAAN STILL ALIVE! The New York Giants advance to the divisional round after defeating the Minnesota Vikings 31-24 on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. … and so — of course, it’s all about the schedule — three NFC East teams are still alive.
With Minny’s result, the Giants will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the divisional round next week.
Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys will play Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night for the fourth and final spot in the next round. … and the winner of the MNF game advances to face the Niners next week.
JANUARY 14 NFL WILD CARD SATURDAY And that’s a tough one to follow, Dallas Cowboys!
The start of the NFL playoffs began Saturday with a pair of comeback results.
After the San Francisco 49ers came back from a halftime deficit to win by three scores (41-23 over Seattle), the Jacksonville Jaguars mounted a 27-point comeback (the third largest in NFL history) to beat the Los Angeles Chargers at home.
The lopsided start to the first half came thanks to five Jaguar turnovers … including four interceptions by Trevor Lawrence. But … the Chargers found a way to blow their four-touchdown lead and lose 31-30 in Jacksonville.
Lawrence bounced back, throwing three second-half touchdown passes to spark Jacksonville’s comeback.
Do you look familiar? Yes, this is the same Jags group that trailed Dallas by 17 points late in the regular season before winning 40-34 in OT.
And of course, the 49ers are the same bunch that beat Dallas in the first round of the playoffs last year.
The 49ers host the top-ranked NFC playoff team, while the Jaguars await their opponent based on Sunday’s results. And the Cowboys will play Monday night, surely hoping for a Tampa Bay win that won’t be as dramatic.
JANUARY 14 COWBOYS LEADER The NFL’s “America’s Team” has done it again.
According to the Sunday Night Football Report, the Dallas Cowboys dominated the NFL in total home attendance with 841,192 fans in nine games at AT&T Stadium this year.
The next highest total was the New York Giants with 688,266.
Obviously, there are a lot of factors here: fan loyalty and passion … a winning team (12-5 overall and 8-1 at home) … the NFL’s third-largest stadium (behind only MetLife Stadium and Lambeau Field) – just a stadium, which itself is a drawing card even for fans of the other team.
But No. 1 is No. 1. … where Cowboys Nation hopes the good feeling will travel to Tampa Bay for Monday night’s playoff opener.
JANUARY 8: COWBOYS PLAYOFF FAVORITES The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who started their run to the division title with a Week 1 win at Dallas, now host a Wild Card Weekend rematch … where the Cowboys open as 3-point favorites.
The Buccaneers clinched the NFC South a week ago, and the events of Week 18 — Dallas’ horrific 26-6 loss at Washington — lock 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 night, but the Bucs will host Dallas next weekend at Raymond James Stadium.
And yes, CowboysSI.com is there!
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of the loss in Washington and the anticipation ahead: “We’ll be soaking it up all week. If that doesn’t get you ready to play in six or seven days, nothing else will.
8 JANUARY HURTS VS. WEBB Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will start Sunday’s regular-season finale against the New York Giants; Unsurprisingly, whether the shoulder is sore or not, the Eagles need a win to keep the Cowboys at bay.
And the giants? Looks like someone explained something to first-year Fireball head coach Brian Daboll, who had previously talked about “playing to win,” even though the Giants (like Philly and Dallas) are in the playoffs, but there’s no reason to risk injury. here.
So … New York gives practice squad quarterback Davis Webb a job.
The Eagles are 13-3 but have lost two straight and must beat or tie the Giants to clinch first place in the NFC and a first-round bye. In the unlikely event that the Eagles lose, the 12-4 Cowboys could advance with a win today in Washington. 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, a third-round draft pick of the Giants in 2017, has never attempted a pass in an NFL regular-season game.
JANUARY 6 JERRY LEAGUE VOTE ON AFC TITLE GAME NFL owners have voted in favor of proposed changes to the AFC playoffs, highlighted by the possibility of a neutral-site game for the AFC Championship, according to NFL Network reports Friday. …
As Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones predicted, it will happen a little earlier in the day.
“We’re going to vote on making the accommodations that we’re concerned about and what we had to adjust because of Damar Hamlin’s injuries, and it’s going to be done and it should be done by noon,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan.
Jones explained his position on how the league must balance the importance of home field advantage with the circumstances surrounding Buffalo Bills’ downed safety Damar Hamlin.
“This is a critical time,” Jones said. “The home field advantage earned by your team’s play throughout the year are all very valuable things — of no use right now. (They shouldn’t) be considered (and not) confused (compared to) sensitivity to Hamlin’s injuries.
The revised AFC playoff plan comes in the wake of Hamlin’s cardiac arrest in the first quarter of Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which resulted in the game being abandoned.
Complete information on the new playoff and AFC title game schedule can be read here.
JANUARY 4 ‘NO CLUB’ Cowboys ‘Lion-backer’ Micah Parsons has a nasty gash on his hand, as first reported by CowboysSI.som, and the injuries – along with what’s known to be quite a bit of swelling – caused him to have to play in last week’s win against the Titans with such a big play, that we all started labeling it “the club”.
Wednesday’s injury report is now out and Micah is not involved … And he doesn’t expect the injury to limit him for the Commanders in Week 18 on Sunday.
“We’re full,” Parsons said. “Not a club.”
JANUARY 4 WASHINGTON COUNSEL WENTZ A week after quarterback Carson Wentz replaced Taylor Heinicke as the team’s starting quarterback, Washington is reportedly changing course.
While Heinicke is expected to be the starter, rookie Sam Howell, who will make his NFL debut in the final week of the regular season, will also get playing time, according to the same report.
As of now, the team has not yet confirmed. .. and unfortunately the report is not quite right.
Carson Wentz is on the bench (again) … even as coach Ron Rivera says he “doesn’t regret” the fateful decision to start Wentz in last week’s playoff loss to the Browns.
UPDATE: Howell is currently receiving first-team reps at Washington practice …
And Howell is Sunday’s starter.
The 7-8-1 Chiefs probably make sense to start the experiment with rookie Howell, as there isn’t much else to do here against 12-4 Dallas, which is playoff-bound and still trying to win the NFC East.
JAN 3 NFL MOVE Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s on-field collapse rocked the sports world Monday night as the 24-year-old went into cardiac arrest in 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 every NFL team showed their support for the second-year safety as all of the league’s and its teams’ Twitter profile pictures were changed to a No. 3 jersey that read “Pray for Damar.”
The Bengals-Bills game was temporarily suspended before being fully postponed Monday night. The league announced on Tuesday that there will be no games this week and there is no current timetable for resuming operations.
JAN 3 NFL ANNOUNCES PLAN The Week 17 matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will not be played this week after Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field, the league announced Tuesday.
The NFL continues to be in regular contact with the medical team caring for Damar Hamlin, 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 today informed the clubs that the Bills-Bengals game will not go ahead this week.
The NFL has not made a decision on whether to resume the game at a later date.
The league has 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 therefore play in Washington on Sunday afternoon as scheduled. See below for more…
2 JAANI COWBOYS-COMMANDERS TIME EXPLANATION 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) all play their games in the same 3:25 game … so neither team has a knowledge advantage regarding this playoff setup.
Here’s a breakdown of the Dallas scenarios, along with the odds that the Cowboys will open the playoffs against Tampa Bay.
Also, Sunday Night Football on NBC is between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
2. JAAN WELCOME BACK! “YIt might be a little premature and maybe a little optimistic, but the Dallas Cowboys have an injury-riddled plan for the playoffs.
“We’re getting three really good football players back,” COO Stephen Jones said Monday during a visit to 105.3 The Fan, looking ahead to the postseason. “Leighton Vander Esch, definitely (Johnathan) Hankins and then if we get (Tyler) Biadasz back … that’s a big plus for our group.”
With linebacker Vander Esch (neck/shoulder) sitting out this week in Washington. Veteran running back Hankins has a pectoral injury. And starting center Biadasz has a sprained ankle, the Cowboys are crossing their fingers for another week of shuffling the O-line.
Jones said on Biadasz: “I think after spending a whole week with him and seeing how he responds to the treatment … We’ll just see what the week brings, but we definitely feel like it’s a real possibility (the medical staff) he is ready to play in the first round of the playoffs.”
28. DESSERT ME TOO! Dez Bryant has moved on from football to become a family man and businessman and has not played in the NFL since 2020.
But he’s certainly having fun with the idea of another “retired” Dallas Cowboys trying to make a comeback.
According to CowboysSI.com, 49-year-old Hall of Famer Terrell Owens has called Jerry Jones’ office and asked for a tryout.
“If T.O comes back…sign me up for a playoff team…seriously! LFG,” Bryant tweeted.
Bryant, 34, was a Pro Bowl running back who had 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns in eight seasons with the Cowboys. Like Owens, he stays in shape and… Well, they’re fun ideas… but they’re not cowboy ideas, if you know what we mean.
December 26 WHITE ON WHITE because we know you care …
We can announce that this week you’ll see a “fresh” look with the Cowboys’ iconic uniforms, a white-based navy “Color Rush” uniform … and a new all-star white helmet …
It will all be revealed in the Week 17 matchup at the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football.
The novelty is subtle. But face masks should pop!
Dec 24 SHUT UP AND PLAY This week, Cowboys tight end Jayron Kearse essentially told his locker room to shut up and play.
Kearse said before Saturday’s visit to the Eagles: “We’ve talked a lot. We shouldn’t be talking at this point. We should be about business. We should be operating. The film should be talking. I really don’t think there’s much more to talk about other than getting the job done.
So far, Kearse has done it, with two takedowns largely responsible for keeping Dallas in this game. His second…
Led by TD Michael Gallup, another guy who lets his game — or in this case, his toes — speak for him.
Dallas is tied at 27. The Eagles enter AT&T Stadium tied for fourth.
Dec. 21 Cowboys and Eagles injury reports are due Wednesday. Micah Parsons and Jalen Hurts have DNP highlights again.
Whoever plays on Saturday, the Cowboys promise to be ready.
“I think everybody in the locker room is looking forward to that rematch,” Dak Prescott said, adding, “Knowing the (Eagles) are playing their ass off and they’re having a hell of a season. …
“Just want to get another shot, try your best.”
DECEMBER 21 MICAH OUT Micah Parsons appears on Wednesday’s practice/injury report as he did Tuesday, noting that the “Lion backer” is DNP (illness).
“Micah Parsons is not with us today … It’s going to change,” coach Mike McCarthy said of the illness.
The Cowboys play host to the Eagles on Christmas Eve.
Dec 20 Malik Jefferson, waived off the Cowboys’ practice squad last week, has rejoined the practice squad, the team announced.
Jefferson, a 26-year-old former Texas Longhorn, could provide depth in the building due to Leighton Vander Esch’s short-term injury.
Dec. 20 DALLAS IN DALLAS The Eagles announced Tuesday that Dallas Goedert has been activated from IR. … Just in time to play against their hated namesake, the Dallas Cowboys.
Goedert has been out since Week 10 with a shoulder injury, but returns aboard the 13-1 Eagles with 544 yards and three touchdowns on 43 catches through nine games, a top-notch complement to receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.
Philly will likely be without QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) for Saturday’s 10-4 game at Dallas.
Dec 18 KELVIN BENCHED The Cowboys are suddenly struggling on defense.
First, they’ve pulled starting cornerback Kelvin Joseph after he gave up two consecutive catches. … so Nahshon Wright has entered the game.
Meanwhile, safety Donovan Wilson was injured, as was Leighton Vander Esch.
Add it all? Dallas led 27-10, but Trevor Lawrence, taking advantage of some of Dak Prescott’s sloppiness, has thrown three TD passes … and the Jags are up 31-27 with 10 minutes left.
Dec 18 LVE HURT Cowboys quarterback Leighton Vander Esch has been escorted to the Jacksonville locker room and is now OUT as it concerns his possibility of returning to the game against the Jags.
While speculating about a possible concussion, the Cowboys are calling it a neck injury.
Micah Parsons is sacked and Ezekiel Elliott has a TD after a pickoff and the Cowboys are up 21-10 in the third as a win clinches a playoff spot.
December 18 COACH IN HOSPITAL Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees, 73, was taken off the field today in pregame warmups in New Orleans after a Saints player accidentally collided with him.
The Falcons said Pees, who remained on the ground for some time after the collision, is “alert and responsive” as he is transported to a local hospital for medical evaluation.
DECEMBER 14 “STAND BY” Jerry Jones wants it.
DFW media asked the Cowboys owner late Wednesday afternoon about the ideal timeline for signing Odell Beckham Jr.
“Sooner rather than later,” he said.
“I don’t want to talk about it, stay out of the way,” Jones said. But wait. Waiting.”
Jones, even if the Cowboys just signed T.Y. Hilton was asked by 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday if the fact that OBJ can’t play today” (due to his allegedly ticking time bomb knee) precludes a deal.
“I wouldn’t go so far as to include the playoffs,” Jones said. “We wouldn’t have been interested in Odell if he didn’t have the talent. I think it’s fair to say he’s a great receiver … as you well know, he’s not ready to play. He’s a receiver that I think would fit in at any time. Interest in Odell continues.”
Also important (click above): The parties discussed the parameters of the contract on Monday.
DECEMBER 14 TWO KEY MOVEMENTS The Cowboys have placed Johnathan Hankins (pec strain) and Terence Steele (torn ACL and MCL) on injured reserve.
Steele is out for the season. Hankins, optimistically, has a chance to be activated during the playoffs.
14. DETS OBJ PATIENT? Will Odell Beckham Jr. be a “prize free agent” … through the spring of 2023.
The Dallas Cowboys are still on the fence about signing OBJ now, in hopes that he can contribute to the NFL playoffs — and perhaps with a contract offer that would secure his services for years to come, especially as his “ticking time bomb.” the knee is well in the past.
Indeed, it appears the Cowboys and Beckham’s camp were talking Monday about the parameters of Dallas’ deal. Playing anywhere is getting smaller this season.
But ESPN is now reporting that “several” NFL teams believe the 30-year-old receiver will now most likely wait until the offseason to make his deal.
“Executives whose teams have done their homework on Beckham expect him to wait because, as they say, ‘he’s going to be the prize of the free agent receiver class,'” ESPN writes. “Beckham is not expected to be ready to play football until the playoffs, and joining a new team and attacking for the playoffs comes with the risk of injury.”
The Cowboys were aware of all of this and just secured their receiving room with veteran T.Y. Hilton.
Can three-time Pro Bowler OBJ pitch in the playoffs get team awards? Could be. But OBJ’s financial reward may not come until he proves his knee is healthy…making him an “award” next March.
Dec 13 BEAS TO BILLS Could the Buffalo Bills be starting to build a new receiver lineup? A couple of liked tweets and reported airport sightings have the Internet buzzing that former Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley is returning to Orchard Park.
And now it’s underway, with NFL Network reporting that Beasley will sign with Buffalo.
WIVB-TV reported on Twitter Monday night that Beasley was back in Buffalo, and their reporter quoted a tweet Beasley had liked that claimed Beasley was on a flight from Baltimore to Buffalo.
Beasley, 33, a Little Elm native, came to the NFL from SMU with the Cowboys before moving to Buffalo. He withdrew from the NFL just two games after playing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in early October.
In three seasons with the Bills (2019-2021), the often straightforward “Beas” recorded 2,348 yards and 11 touchdowns on 231 catches, becoming one of Josh Allen’s favorite targets.
MEDICALS FOR MONDAY, DECEMBER 12 In addition to offensive lineman Terence Steele now out with a serious injury, defensive end Johnathan Hankins is dealing with an abdominal strain from Sunday’s win over the Texans that coach Mike McCarthy says is “significant.”
The Cowboys believe defensive end Dorance Armstrong, who is wearing a boot after Sunday’s game, can play with his sore ankle this week in Jacksonville.
The loss of Steele is a big one as the Cowboys now plan to shuffle the O-line, perhaps with both the young Josh Ball and the not-so-young Jason Peters rotating at right tackle.
McCarthy of Steele said, “A rock of a man.”
DECEMBER 11 INJURY QUESTIONS The Dallas Cowboys pulled off a last-minute 27-23 victory over the Texans on Sunday, but suffered losses along the way.
Most disturbing: Starting right tackle Terence Steele left the game with a knee injury that the Cowboys said they were “very concerned about” with an MRI coming up.
Also, defensive end Johnathan Hankins suffered a shoulder injury and Jake Ferguson suffered a head/neck injury.
Steele’s injury is the most problematic since the Cowboys first replaced him with youngster Josh Ball but then turned to vet Jason Peters.
Next week in Jacksonville, Peters could be the right tackle if Tyron Smith returns to the left tackle job.
Also, Trevon Diggs briefly left with a thumb injury and now says he has injuries to both thumbs. And Dorance Armstrong wears protective boots after spraining his ankle.
DECEMBER 11 COWBOYS OPEN HOT A combination of the Texans’ harassing offensive line and Tony Pollard’s skills, paired nicely with some fun Cowboys playmaking, has resulted in a fast start for Dallas over the Texans.
Pollard scored from 11 yards out to cap the opening 76-yard TD drive of a nine-play stretch at AT&T Stadium in Week 14.
Dec 10 FINES Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have been fined $13,261 for celebrating a TD by using a Salvation Army red kettle against the Colts.
Money well spent, Cowboys Nation would certainly agree. Right. Zeke?
“It’s worth the awareness we bring to the Salvation Army,” he said.
DECEMBER 9 WHAT THE HELL? Sean McVay is a sharp man. But even the Los Angeles Rams coach didn’t quite understand what he was watching.
The coach seemed bemused by the result, a 17-16 win over Las Vegas on Thursday night that looked all kinds of sci-fi capped by Ram-for-a-day (sort of) QB Baker Mayfield making a long play. field TD drive with 1:45 to play.
“Just like we drafted it,” McVay said, adding, “I’m still like, ‘What the hell is going on?’
“I don’t know if you could write it any better,” said Mayfield, who was waived by Carolina just a few days ago and then just a few games into “Thursday Night Football” (Matthew Stafford was hurt). “It’s a pretty good story, I’ll be honest with you.”
Here’s what happened…stay tuned!
Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks — a trade target for the Cowboys before this year’s deadline — has a calf injury and is expected to miss his second straight game. … this Sunday at noon in Dallas.
And … there’s also a trend toward fellow quarterback Nico Collins being sidelined with a foot injury.
Houston is 1-10-1 and already short on weapons against 9-3 Dallas.
OUT FOR YEAR DECEMBER 7 Buffalo Bills star pass rusher Von Miller, who had hoped to return to action in the coming weeks, has instead undergone surgery for a torn ACL in his knee and is now done for the season.
Head coach Sean McDermott made the announcement Wednesday at team headquarters.
A DFW native and an offseason target of the Cowboys before signing with Buffalo, Miller has a long-term deal with the Bills … and is sure to be in the news for a while as a central figure in Buffalo’s recruitment of the injured receiver. Odell Beckham Jr., with the Dallas Cowboys as a rival there.
TEXAS RIVALS ON DECEMBER 5?! No, Week 14 will not feature a pair of “rivals” in the Houston Texans playing the Dallas Cowboys at noon Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
Cities “love to hate each other”. What about 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 even Deshaun Watson’s controversial return to Houston didn’t matter to the crowd.
The Texans have a 1-10-1 record.
The Cowboys, coming off a 54-19 win over Indy, will play on Sunday Night Football looking to improve their 9-3 record and keep pace with the Eagles. Dallas has won two straight and four of its last five, and some odds have the Cowboys as 17-point favorites in this one.
The Cowboys have now made a habit of scoring 30-plus points. The Texans haven’t scored 17 points in their last six games. So … place your bets!
Dec 4 JIMMY G OUT The 49ers say QB Jimmy Garoppolo is questionable to return to the Dolphins game with an injury. Brock Purdy is now at QB. And yes…
It’s a potential shift in the NFC … for a team like the Seahawks in the West and teams like the Dallas Cowboys.
UPDATE: After San Francisco’s 33-17 win, coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will need season-ending foot surgery.
TWO NEW LOOKS ON DECEMBER 4 The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will debut a new look for their iconic boots with red, white and blue accents on Sunday night as part of the team’s “Salute to Service” weekend … which you can read more about. here when Dallas takes on Indianapolis here at AT&T Stadium.
But on top of that, Christmas is coming and the Cowboys are hosting the Eagles on Christmas Eve…
So the Cowboys Cheerleaders have to dress appropriately and want to, as they’ve been showing off their special holiday-themed outfits.
December 3: DEION’S DECISION Deion Sanders has officially announced that he will be Colorado’s next head coach.
Sanders won the Jackson St. went 27-5 in three seasons 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, ending the school’s first undefeated season.
“There were several highly qualified and impressive candidates interested in becoming Colorado’s next head football coach, but none of them had the pedigree, knowledge or ability to connect with student-athletes like Deion Sanders,” the Colorado athletic director said. Rick George said in a statement. “Cach Prime will not only energize our fan base, but I am confident that he will lead our program back to national prominence while leading a high-quality, high-character team.”
Sanders, 55, played 14 seasons in the NFL, including five with the Cowboys. During his time in Dallas, he had 159 tackles, 14 interceptions and two touchdowns. Sanders was part of the Cowboys’ 1995 championship team that defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX. He was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
Has already begun recruiting staff and players to Colorado.
DECEMBER 2 ANTONIO BROWN’S TROUBLE Antonio Brown occasionally floats the idea of returning to the NFL, sometimes suggesting the Dallas Cowboys as his employer.
It wont happen. Instead, Brown is in serious trouble as he faces another court case after a recent alleged domestic incident that led to an arrest warrant being issued for the former NFL standout.
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 the South Tampa home.
On Thursday night, NBC News reported that Tampa police were still trying to arrest Brown after he made several attempts outside his home. The department told NBC that Brown was “not communicating with police officers.”
WFTS-TV in Tampa reported that officers were at Brown’s home for more than an hour and used a megaphone to call to him through the front door. A Tampa police statement shows Brown and a woman were involved in a verbal argument that turned physical earlier this week, with Brown allegedly saying “if he got into the house, he would shoot her in front of the police.”
Dec 1 BYE, OBJ It’s already known that the Los Angeles Rams were not involved in re-signing Odell Beckham Jr. But now there is physical evidence…
The Associated Press reveals that the former locker at team headquarters that was used by the free agent wide receiver and was kept for it is no more.
“The locker that has had Odell Beckham Jr.’s name on it since last season at the Rams practice complex is now empty again,” Beacham said. “They won’t save OBJ’s seat anymore.”
OBJ is on a suitors tour starting today with visits to the Giants on Thursday, the Bills on Friday and the Cowboys on Monday.
NOV 29 NOW, OBJ! Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ( @1053thefan ) is making the team’s pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. almost a matter of urgency.
“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 we’ve pretty much got the whole show in front of us. We’ve got to be in a situation where he can really contribute now.”
Now, let’s interpret this correctly: Part of what Jones seems to be saying is that Dallas “needs” a healthy OBJ … and since he’s spent nearly a year rehabbing his knee, there are lingering questions.
But if those questions are answered next Monday, when Beckham is due to visit The Star?
Jones also noted that OBJ’s flight incident will not affect 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. Seems confident. Feels good. We think he’ll be a great fit for us.”
Jones also said of the airport incident: “His judgment, his behavior is not an issue for him. It is for a lot of people. It’s not for him.”
So … if he passes the doctors and other obstacles (money, other providers) are dealt with?
“We’ve got to have this year,” Jones said. “It’s very important. This year has to be a big part of it.”
NOV 28 OBJ FLY Odell Beckham Jr. tweeted about the remarkable experience early Sunday morning, but did not elaborate,
“Comedy class,” he said about … something.
Maybe this AD / VIDEO is what he is talking about… Did the cops remove OBJ from the plane?
The Dallas Cowboys, one of the suitors for the free agent star, have often argued that OBJ’s “diva” reputation is unfounded.
Let’s see what the airport cops have to say about it… 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 get off the plane. … until the police arrive.
Oh, and by the way, no, according to the passenger accompanying 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 taxied down the runway, but we are (returning) to the gate due to a problem” …
NOVEMBER 25 OBJECTION MEETINGS The Dallas Cowboys are in the news for free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. with his planned visit. Well, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones revealed that he had a “good visit” over the phone with OBJ over Thanksgiving.
But Beckham still has several teams on his list as he prepares to begin his free agent visits. … And yes, cowboys have company.
That’s according to Josina Anderson of CBS Sports, who reported Friday that Beckham has confirmed plans to visit three suitors … and to do so in that order …
We think the Dallas visit is scheduled for Monday, December 5th. So the Giants and Bills sessions are right around the corner.
Anderson also reports that Beckham, who has been nursing 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 contract), with speculation that he may be asked. $20 million APY.
The Bills’ recruitment of OBJ has been keyed by his Rams Super Bowl teammate Von Miller, for whom Miller is now in the news as he deals with a knee injury suffered in the Thanksgiving win at Detroit.
NOV 24 OBJ CELEBRATES COWBOYS DATE It’s a date!
Both the Cowboys and Giants plan to host a visit with Odell Beckham Jr., but we already knew that. Now comes the ball rolling: Beckham will visit with the Cowboys on Monday, Dec. 5, according to Jay Glazer.
The Giants don’t seem to have set a date yet, but they are on Beckham’s wish list. The Bills, Niners and Chiefs could also make appearances here … although those organizations haven’t been as vocal about it all as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his franchise.
Beckham is said to be healthy after rehabbing his knees and is reportedly looking for a long-term deal worth around $20 million APY, all part of his home search, he says.
And in DFW? Housing searches are underway on Dec. 5.
NOV 23 TP WIN Prize. It’s undeniable: Tony Pollard has become perhaps the most feared weapon in the Cowboys offense, and this week he’s getting credit for it. He was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his stellar performance in Dallas’ 40-3 win at Minnesota.
TP numbers? He had a career-high 189 yards (109 receptions, 80 rushing) and two TDs on Sunday.
Our friend Marcus Mosher at PFF writes: “Tony Pollard’s season is upon us. It has suddenly turned Dallas into one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL, fueling a player who is arguably the best 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 up from a year ago when they were the No. 1 ranked offense in the NFL.
Of course, it has something to do with the return of Dak Prescott. But as the Cowboys prepare to host the Giants on Thanksgiving in a battle between two 7-3 NFC East teams? Yes, it has a lot to do with Tony Pollard too.
NOV 22 BRADY IN TROUBLE IN TEXAS? The Texas Securities and Exchange Commission has reportedly advanced its investigation into the operations and bankruptcy of cryptocurrency platform FTX, now including the activities of celebrities such as the NFL’s Tom Brady and the NBA’s Stephen Curry.
Bloomberg News first reported the latest investigation into possible violations of securities laws.
“Anyone who provides investment advice in Texas is generally required to be registered and generally required to disclose all known material facts,” the Texas State Securities Commission said, via the Texas Tribune. “There is no different legal system or regulation for celebrities in Texas.”
It follows a class-action lawsuit filed by the News that names Curry and Brady and other celebrities and alleges that they “either controlled, promoted, aided or actively participated” in an alleged scheme in which they “aggressively marketed FTX — which the filing describes as a “veritable house of cards” and “Ponzi scheme”.
NOVEMBER 21 RUSSELL WILSON ANOTHER HERSCHEL After all the dust settled and after all the onion skins were peeled off, the NFL world reached a universal deal: a deal like the Herschel Walker deal, crafted so cleverly by the Cowboys that it became the foundation of a three-time Super Bowl champion.
Will “never” never happen again in Seattle?
The 1989 Walker trade — considered the greatest steal in football history — brought the Cowboys the Vikings several top running backs. Players drafted with picks acquired from Minnesota: Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Darren Woodson and Kevin Smith.
And now? The Denver Broncos, like these Vikings, thought they were “a star away.” The Seahawks oblige, trading quarterback Russell Wilson for two first-round picks, two second-round picks and three veteran players.
How does that look for the Broncos? Wilson, as our guy (and veteran Seahawks watcher) Corbin K. Smith writes, “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. 10 starts as Denver is with a disappointing 3-7 record and are currently in last place in the AFC West.
And how will Seattle fare with a reinstated Geno Smith at QB? Smith writes that he is “a viable MVP candidate leading a 6-4 NFC West-leading team.”
And that’s not even counting all the types and all the chosen ones and … Well, check out Corbin’s in-depth look at how “The Herschel Theft” never happened again … except maybe it just did.
NOV 20 TP NO. 1? Tony Pollard is important. Ezekiel Elliott is important. And as Dallas prepares for tonight’s Vikings showdown at the Cowboys, the importance of both quarterbacks will be emphasized as always, with a perpetual nod to the idea that “as Zeke goes, so go the Cowboys.”
But the NFL Network offers a new wrinkle for Week 11, the idea that Zeke — “light years ahead” of where he was after missing two games with a sprained knee — is “back” with Pollard. “to get more touches,” it seems, as Elliott kneels.
Our gentle suggestion: the game script, at least as much as any pre-game concepts, is a 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 limited today by The Star.
But he added, “I have every intention of having him play” in Sunday’s game at the Vikings.
Lawrence, who has played through serious injuries, is indeed ready to do it again.
“My right knee hurts worse than my legs,” he said. “I have so many problems right now. I’m just trying to focus on the task at hand.”
But … you play on Sunday?
Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Anthony Barr are also on track to return this weekend.
McCarthy on Zeke: “I expect him to go.”
McCarthy on Barr: “He’s on track to play on Sunday.”
NOV 17 NEW GUYS AT WORK The Cowboys added two name players to their roster via the practice squad, and on Thursday, new guys took the field at The Star – defensive end Takk McKinley and receiver Antonio Callaway.
Callaway, a former Browns starter, wears No. 14.
Takk, a former first-round pick for the Falcons, is ranked No. 59.
NOV 16 Chicago Wants Taco The Chicago Bears signed Taco Charlton from the New Orleans Saints practice squad.
The former Cowboy, who was selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft by Dallas, played with him for two seasons before being waived. Charlton’s time with the Cowboys was a disappointment, amassing just four sacks in 27 games.
His new deal with the Bears now reunites him with head coach Matt Eberflus, who was the Cowboys’ former linebackers coach when Charlton was drafted.
NOV 16 TAKK IN The Dallas Cowboys have made another move. The Cowboys have hosted defensive end Takk McKinley for a practice squad following his summer workout.
McKinley is a former first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons under then-head coach Dan Quinn. McKinley played four seasons in Atlanta before spending his last two with the Browns and Rams.
The move comes on the heels of Tuesday’s signing of another name player looking for a reboot as former Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway joined the club via the practice squad.
NOV 15 CENTER TRIALS The Cowboys have moved rookie UDFA center Alex Lindstrom to IR (practice squad) and now need help there, a source tells CowboysSI.com, where three prospects can now try out here at The Star.
Beau Benzschawel played at Wisconsin and went undrafted in 2019.
Brock Hoffman is a rookie UDFA at Virginia Tech.
Michal Meneti was drafted by Arizona in the seventh round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Penn State.
Tyler Biadasz continues to be Dallas’ starting center, and Lindstrom had served as the backup.
NOV 15 RAMS DISABLED The Los Angeles Rams will be without their top offensive weapon for at least four weeks after star quarterback Cooper Kup was placed on injured reserve, Rams Sean McVay announced.
Kupp was injured during the Rams’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday after suffering a severe ankle sprain late in the game.
Kupp will miss at least four weeks and undergo hamstring surgery to repair the injury. Recovery from rope surgery is reported to be typically five to six weeks.
McVay didn’t rule Kup out for the season.
Kupp is the Rams’ overwhelming leader in most 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 “leftovers” as they slide in the NFC, where the 6-3 Dallas Cowboys try to keep up, here.
NOV 13 DALLAS 7-ALL Cowboys at Packers has mostly been about Dallas’ ability to get close to the goal line…but also only allowing one field goal through the first quarter-and-a-half.
CeeDee Lamb has QB Dak Prescott catch a TD as the receiver comes out of the backfield … but on a 14-0 Dallas turnover, Prescott goes up for an interception in the end zone.
And 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 game at 7.
NOV 12 COWBOYS AND JOB? The Los Angeles Chargers are giving up former first-round defensive end Jerry Tillery — and the Dallas Cowboys, who are always looking to shore up a good defense (albeit with some run stops in preparation for Sunday’s game at Green Bay), are in 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 in the 2019 NFL Draft is getting a fresh start somewhere…
But the way the waiver wire works, the worst teams get the first claims. And Dallas — with its 6-2 record — is going to the bottom of the teams with a shot at him.
That process could begin as early as next week, and teams like the one-win Texans seem like the most logical winners here.
The 28th overall pick in 2019, Tillery, 26, was in his fourth season with the Chargers after starting 29 of 54 games played, recording 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 the list…
Scoop: #Cowboys BIG FA training at The Star…
More information at the time of collection. …
NOV 1 RIDLEY STOPPED … TRADE?! Calvin Ridley’s weird story just keeps getting weirder.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, in dire need of difference makers, explored the idea of trading hapless Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley about a year ago.
But some problems got in the way.
First, the talented receiver left Atlanta for mental health reasons; he seemed to be considering retirement.
The Falcons then traded him to the Eagles, but voluntarily opted out of the trade because the Falcons knew Ridley would receive a one-year suspension for betting on NFL games.
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 the NFL Network terms a “complicated” deal that could end up netting Atlanta second- and fifth-round picks.
NOV 1 NOV 1 WR DEAL File this in the category of “do something” that doesn’t really make much sense – or at least wouldn’t have made sense for Dallas.
The Bears just traded a second-rounder in Chase Claypool for a receiver who has had average production (including just one TD catch this year and zero catches on two Steelers targets last week) but was at some level in Dallas. radar…
But no. Not for a second round pick. … which could prove too expensive for Dallas to discuss with Brandin Cooks, who is a much more proven pro than Claypool.
NOV 1 CHUBB MIAMI Bradley Chubb has been traded to the AFC East as the Dolphins re-enter their Buffalo Bills rivalry. Full story here.
NOV 1 TJ MINNY TJ Hockenson will see a lot of Cowboys soon. His Lions just played in Dallas…and now, later this month, his Vikings – because they just switched ranks there – will see the Cowboys again. Full story here.
1 NOV DE KULU The Cowboys continue to be involved in pass-rush trade rumors (see Bradley Chubb) … not that we fully understand the logic.
But just in case, it is instructive to know the price.
We know this because the Los Angeles Rams’ offer to Panthers wing Brian Burns is, via. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, consisting of the first two rounds.
It seems likely that the Panthers rejected the Rams’ offer of those two first-rounders, as they come in 2024 and 2025; that’s all Aries has.
But it could also show how much Carolina doesn’t want to lose its main sack artist.
And that might hint at how unlikely it is for Dallas to go that route.
NOV 1 JOKER Kareem Hunt just played in Cleveland’s 32-13 “Monday Night Football” win over Cincinnati and it was Halloween. So it made perfect sense that he would celebrate in his own way.
“I mean, I’m all for it, man,” Hunt said, per NFL.com. “I’m a footballer and it’s a business. So I’m ready to do whatever they decide to do with me.”
“It’s either go somewhere else or here, whatever, it doesn’t matter. I love the game of football,” said Hunt, who must also love being “The Joker” on Halloween, as he gave his post-game interview a “Batman-related mask.”
31 OCT. HUNTING IN THE NFC EAST? The Philadelphia Eagles are rumored to be interested in Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt. The Browns are expected to take the former NFL rushing champion and their backup quarterback, perhaps as little as a fourth-round pick, and for Hunt to serve as Philly’s backup to Miles Sanders.
NFL insider Jay Glazer has indicated that he could see the Eagles running back being traded, which adds credibility — if not logic — to the rumor. Assuming Hunt’s unhappiness in Cleveland is partly due to him being Nick Chubb’s starter… why would he be happy as Sanders’ backup?
But say this about Philly: At 7-0, the roster is the product of many, many right moves.
31 OCT. ROQUAN TRADED EMBARRASSING The Dallas Cowboys’ 49-29 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday was “embarrassing,” according to star quarterback Roquan Smith.
And now Smith is being traded to the Baltimore Ravens. … and in the process jump from 3-5 NFC losers to 5-3 AFC winners.
Reportedly, the Bears will receive a second- and fifth-round pick as the Ravens work to secure a long-term extension for the young talent.
31 OCT. BRANDIN COOKS TIES In our two recent conversations with Texans sources, the organization continues to play down the idea of Brandin Cooks being traded.
And there are over-the-top reasons to move him because 1) we believe Houston will ask for a second-round pick in return and 2) he has an $18 million price tag locked in through 2023.
But would he help Dallas or another contending team? There’s no doubt that the take-the-top-off vet found success in Houston (the 29-year-old has 32 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown this year) despite erratic QB play.
He’s a perennial 1,000-yard guy, and his name has now come up in two media outlets, Dallas and New York. Are the Cowboys really that interested in spending here?
OCT 31 STEPHEN JONES HINT for OBJ? Despite Jerry Jones’ “itchiness” and “risk-taker” mentality, COO Stephen Jones said the Cowboys are “comfortable” out wide.
But then Stephen added, “And then there are some guys who don’t belong to anyone who’s there.”
Stephen’s quote and our “who” list are here.
31 OCT. DANCE ON DEADLINE? The Dallas Cowboys and the rest of the NFL have a trade deadline Tuesday afternoon … and CowboysSI.com’s one-on-one Jerry Jones leaves our Mike Fisher believing Jerry has “The Itch.”
Fish writes, “Jerry Jones has the ‘itch.’
“My 32 years of chronicling the Jones era in Dallas is no guarantee of what the Cowboys will do between now and Tuesday’s deadline. ‘Who’? ‘What’? A candidly discussed 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 couple of postgame media sessions and then a celebratory elevator ride to Jones’ suite at AT&T Stadium:
“Jerry Jones wishes there was an opportunity where he could use his trust in his ‘gut and gut and instinct and willingness to go out there and take that risk.’
31 OCT. NEW ENGLAND NAMES Amid several reports that the Patriots have called a number of players, the latest Patriots rumors include names such as right tackle Isaiah Wynn, linebacker Damien Harris and safety Jabril Peppers. It’s also being reported that New England recently received inquiries about all of the Pats’ vets, including Jakobi Meyers, DeVante Parker, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne.
OCT 31: 10 NAMES Sunday was a big release day for rumors and the Buffalo Bills news was very important. The Buffalo News compiled a top-10 list, and here are our answers regarding the bills and more…
1) Rams running Cam Akers. Sources in Los Angeles have told us that the two parties are “done” with each other. The problem: Akers doesn’t seem to run with much “juice,” making him less of a threat than the top two running backs on Buffalo’s roster.
2) Texans receiver Brandin Cooks. Cooks is the top weapon, but the Texans would only listen if offered a second-round pick, according to a source. That and Cooks’ $18 million salary in 2023 make this a non-starter.
3) Panthers guard Austin Corbett. He has connections with the Bills coaching staff and the Panthers are in sell mode. (Even though they claim they don’t.)
4) Panthers offensive lineman Cam Erving. Erving is a former cowboy and is respectfully just a man.
5) Lions safety DeShon Elliott. Given his time with the Lions — a defense that seems to be giving up 35 points at the drop of a hat — that’s not very appealing.
6) Commanders who lead Antonio Gibson. The Washington office denies dealing with Gibson. (We’d also throw Cleveland’s Kareem Hunt into that category — at least as a name to look into.)
7) Falcons center Matt Hennessy. A depth piece for the Bills? Of course. But keep in mind that entering Week 8, the Falcons are — rather amazingly — in first place in the NFC South … meaning they have no reason to sell.
8) Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy. A first-round pick in the 2020 draft, Jeudy would likely love to get out of Denver’s mess. However, the Broncos would be wise to ask for an extremely high trade price here.
There are some cowboy rumors here, but more smoke than fire, we say.
By the way, and that goes for Cooks and the Steelers’ Chase Claypool and possibly free agent Odell Beckham Jr. re: We wonder if the Bills front office is as obsessed with the idea of adding Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis as the public apparently is?
9) Bears Run by David Montgomery. He is in the final year of his rookie contract, so this would be a rental. Do the Bills need to add a power back? And if so, don’t they already have it in Zack Moss at dawn?
10) 49ers safety Tarvarius Moore. The 49ers see themselves as contenders, not “sellers,” as evidenced by their willingness to pay a price the Bills wouldn’t pay for Christian McCaffrey.
OCT 30 AIKMAN SEES NEED A member of the Dallas Cowboys “family” is trying to have an opinion — and his name happens to be “Troy Aikman.”
“If you’re going to win games, you better run an offense in today’s NFL,” Aikman told TMZ when asked if his old team should pursue a wide receiver. “Your way of being offensive is that you have guns, and you have to have more than one or two.”
Aikman’s contemporary Michael Irvin has another idea — signing resurgent free agent Odell Beckham Jr.?
It seems to be Irvin’s exact type. Aikman has no name; he just has an educated opinion. Aikman said trading a receiver “would definitely help them.”
Worth noting: Aikman made these comments about Dallas “needing offense” before the Cowboys beat the Bears 49-29 to move to 6-2.
OCT 26 ONE-UPDED? We should mention that Dallas’ deal for Johnathan Hankins actually preceded the Eagles’ trade for Robert Quinn. So no, Dallas didn’t “respond” to the arms race there. But that doesn’t mean some aren’t calling for a different answer, especially with rumors swirling that Philly could pursue Saints superstar linebacker Alvin Kamara.

Why don t players like the franchise tag?
The most common explanation why players hate the franchise tag is the lack of security it offers compared to a long-term deal. See the article : Chiefs plan to have the biggest Red Friday in team history.
What happens if a player declines the franchise tag? Players are not required to sign a franchise tender, but if they do not, they cannot play for any team during the season. From the moment a team uses the franchise tag, it can sign a player to a long-term contract until mid-July.
Why would a player want a franchise tag? The franchise tag is a designation that allows NFL teams to select one player who is an unrestricted free agent and guarantees an additional year of contract if certain conditions are met. Each team receives one franchise tag per year and can be applied either as exclusive or non-exclusive.
Is Dak Prescott still with Adidas?
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is leaving Adidas and signing a five-year deal with Jordan Brand, a source close to the situation told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Read also : I’m a former NFL cheerleader – people always make cruel comments when they see me at my college….
Has Dak Prescott signed with Jordan Brand? The first NFL-Jordan collaboration featuring Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys is off. Jordan dropped a new line of gear and merchandise inspired by the Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott on Friday afternoon. The former MSU signal caller is the only NFL quarterback with a deal with Jordan.
Now what about Dak Prescott? Prescott suffered a sprain near his thumb in the fourth quarter of Dallas’ 19-3 loss to the Buccaneers, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed to reporters Sunday night. Prescott, who didn’t miss a game in the first six years of his NFL career, has missed 12 since 2020.
Does Dak Prescott have a shoe deal?
In 2021, Prescott traded Adidas AG – ADR (OTC:ADDYY) for Jordan Brand, a shoe and apparel brand owned by Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE). Prescott signed a five-year deal with Jordan Brand and is said to be the highest-paid NFL athlete on the company’s roster. See the article : Falcons signed two defensemen to new prices.
What shoes does Dak Prescott wear? And that problem is Dak Prescott’s cleats. His Jordan Brand cleats, to be exact.
Does Dak Prescott have signature shoes? Prescott signed a five-year deal with Jordan Brand and is said to be the highest-paid NFL athlete on the company’s roster. The deal could free up the brand, and Prescott is one of the key faces of a brand that has been more recognizable in the NBA than the NFL.
