The wheels are in motion in Dallas, the Cowboys have officially signed CB Brandon Carr to a 5yr/$51 million deal, and they have added a new FB in Lawrence Vickers.
Now, we’re talking. Carr upgrades the secondary instantly, and gives us a physical presence as well. Next on the list should be the safety position.
Vickers is a blocking fullback who has had great success in Cleveland and Houston for opening holes for starting running back, so this is a great pickup. I like what the Cowboys are doing now. Good moves across the board.

The Cowboys released Terence Newman on Tuesday.
The Dallas Cowboys began their rebuilding process in the early 2000s with high first-round draft picks in 2002 and 2003. In both drafts, the Cowboys stuck with the Big XII Conference, taking safety Roy Williams of Oklahoma in 2002 and cornerback Terence Newman of Kansas State in 2003.
Williams was an immediate hit, making five consecutive...
Guess we can now pencil in Tony Romo to be playing indoor soccer on Monday nights somewhere in Texas. Adjust your paparazzi schedule accordingly, fools. BC tipster Troy sent word that Tony was up to his normal offseason routine so we had our eyes open this morning for Tony ripping shots on some goalie who spends his days working in commercial real estate. Yep, Tony played soccer...
The New York Giants signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett to a one-year deal.
The pact is worth $2.5 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday.
"I think at times you got glimpses, but I was in a limited role," Bennett said of his spending his career as a backup to Jason Witten. "I only played like 30 percent of the snaps while...
According to the New York Giants website, TE Martellus Bennett will join the champs as their latest tight end.
Bennett is amongst the league’s best athletes at this position and the fit is a good one for a variety of reasons.
As a blocker, Bennett can take out linebackers and help RB Ahmad Bradshaw break big plays.
In the passing game he can meet or even surpass the numbers...
The Cowboys have added QB Kyle Orton and OG Mackenzy Bernadeau as their latest free agent acquisitions. Orton was an absolute need, and will provide solid backup play for Romo. Bernadeau, in my opinion, was brought in to add depth and create competition. I don’t see see Bernadeau as being the guy we had to have to jump in and start at guard.
Injuries were a big hinderance for the...
The Dallas Cowboys and free agent safety Brodney Pool agreed to terms on a one-year deal Thursday.
Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Pool recorded 36 tackles and an interception last season for the New York Jets. He played two campaigns with New York after five seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
With Cleveland, Pool played with now-Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
