Cowboys safety Barry Church told DallasCowboys.com that he’s “95 percent” recoverd from last year’s Achilles injury.
Church was asked what his goals are this season.
“Me personally, I would like to make the Pro Bowl,” Church said. “I feel like I was on my way last year before I got injured. This year, I feel like if I could withstand the whole season, I have a good chance.”
Church sounds very confident.
“I just always taught myself to think big and stay positive, and work hard,” Church said. “If you do that, you’re giving yourself a chance.”
The Cowboys are going to need Church to live up to the hype that followed him going into last season. Hopefully this year won’t end with an injury.

In 2012, the Cowboys acquired cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency and Morris Claiborne via the draft so they have corners who can play man coverage.
However, in the offseason, they gutted their 3-4 defense run by Rob Ryan and went out and hired Cover 2 guru Monte Kiffin as their defensive coordinator.
Carr and Claiborne are not a good fit for the Cover 2 scheme, which will...

Frederick was the last of the Cowboys’ seven draft picks left unsigned.
Frederick said after mini-camp two weeks ago that both sides...

Perhaps the biggest question marks exist entering the 2013 season for the Dallas Cowboys at the safety position. This position was a huge weakness in 2012, and still remains an immediate weakness for the Cowboys.
With the switch to Monte Kiffin’s Cover 2, corners Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne will be relied upon to play much more man-coverage,...
It has been an off-season that Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett likely can't wait to be over. Some were calling for his head after a disappointing '12 campaign. That never appeared to enter into owner Jerry Jones's mind, but Jones did see fit to set the stage for Garett's ouster should the team stumble again in '13 by stripping him of play calling duties...
After not getting any playing time during his first year in the NFL, the undrafted rookie free agent out of Southern University got a second chance to join the Cowboys in January.
At that point, not even his father’s 20-year Hall of Fame career with the rival Washington Redskins could prevent him from signing to the Cowboys’ reserve/future list.
“I’m proud to be a Dallas...

Dallas Cowboys' fans you have two Hall of Fame Quarterbacks, both were Super Bowl MVP's; two that can be considered amongst the "All-Time Greats", and lead your franchise to all five of its SB rings. The big question is, if you were the GM with the foresight of knowing how their careers would turn out, and both Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman were on the...

Former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Nate Newton was interviewed on a Dallas-area radio last week, and was asked about Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel. Newton said Manziel needed to try to be like "an everyday guy."

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cowboys and Anthony Spencer’s agent Jordan Woy have broken off contract talks.
I used the term "broken off" for Anthony Spencer talks. A better way to say it is both sides are fine with a one-year deal at this point.

The Dallas Cowboys added a defensive tackle to their 90-man roster on Monday, according to DallasCowboys.com. Jerome Long, a seventh-round draft pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012, takes the open spot that was created when the Cowboys released defensive end Anthony Hargrove on Thursday.
