Texans Love Them Some Bradie

Linebacker Bradie James signed a one-year, $890,000 deal with the Houston Texans. He gets $250,000 guaranteed, including $65,000 up front. The Cowboys had no intentions of bringing James back as he lost more and more playing time to second-year player Sean Lee. James was a fourth-round pick for the Cowboys in the 2005 Draft, and led the team in tackles for six consecutive seasons before 2011. He was a fan favorite and very popular during his stint with Dallas. James will be reunited with Wade Phillips who is the Texans’ defensive coordinator.

Out With The Old, Out With The New

Former Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman has also found a new home. T-New has reportedly signed a one year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals according to a league source. Newman, a nine-year veteran of the Dallas Cowboys, was released this offseason. In 2011, Newman collected 53 tackles and four interceptions with one returned for a touchdown.

Keeping Up With The Jones’

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones is denying a report that team is looking to move running back Felix Jones. Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reported that oft-injured running back was on the trading block on Monday and that the team has had internal discussions about getting rid of Jones. Stephen Jones said:

“No discussions – or speculation – on the possibility of a trade involving Felix Jones have ever taken place among individuals in this organization who would have the authority to explore such a scenario. Any reports of apparent internal discussions along those lines would involve people who have no input or relevance in the process.”

Jones has started just 16 of 48 games over the last four seasons and has averaged 6.5 yards per carry, including a league-high 5.9 yards per carry in 2009. Last season third round pick DeMarco Murray took over Jones’ spot on the depth chart and the team is also high on Phillip Tanner, an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State. Jones s in the final year of his rookie contract. This story has legs… Felix Jones is as good as gone in my opinion.

Tony + Candice = Hawkins

Tony Romo is a new daddy… The Cowboys quarterback and his wife, Candice, became first-time parents Monday. Hawkins Crawford Romo checked in at 19 3/4 inches and 8 pounds, 8 ounces, according to Cowboys vice president Rich Dalrymple.

“It’s been fantastic,” Romo said. “You hear about it from your family and friends. Until you experience it, you really can’t put into words how it makes you feel. For me, it just feels like you can tell there’s a god. It just really shows you all the complexities of it. There’s such a sense of responsibility that it just overwhelms you. ”

Congratulations to Tony, Candice and Hawkins!
