Orlando Scandrick isn't a bad nickel corner, but he is not the best player to wear #32.
Here is the latest update to the greatest Dallas Cowboys by their jersey numbers. This entry focuses on numbers 31 through 35.
Roy Williams had perhaps the most dramatic fall from grace of any star in Cowboys history. He made five consecutive Pro Bowls before losing the ability to cover tight ends. Once his coverage ability was gone, he became a liability. He changed numbers from 31 to 38 in 2008 but only played in three games. He played two years in Cincinnati but was out of football after 2010.
Mike Jenkins wore #31 as a rookie but changed to #21 in 2009.
Walt Garrison was voted the best player to wear #32, and Orlando Scandrick is not going to change that.
Duane Thomas has a place in team history, but nobody who wore #33 was better than Tony Dorsett. Nate Jones wore the number until he left after the 2007 season. Although players have worn it in preseason, nobody has worn it in a regular season game since 2007.
I originally voted for Cornell Green at #34, but Hershel Walker received the most votes. Deon Anderson saw some action as a fullback but had trouble overcoming injuries. Philip Tanner wore the number in 2011 but had less than 100 total rushing yards.
Calvin Hill received 90% of the votes in 2008, and only Tra Battle and Lonyae Miller have worn #35 since than.
The complete list:

According Len Pasquarelli of the The Sports Xchange, the Dallas Cowboys are looking for a third receiver, and previously looked at tape of Terrell Owens and then looked at some film of Chad Ochocinco who just released by the Patriots on Thursday. They came away “fairly unimpressed” after studying both players.
The Cowboys certainly need to add depth at the...
Kyle Orton, the presumed clipboard holder for the Cowboys, said he isn't committing himself to be a backup but instead is committing himself to being part of the team.
The Dallas Cowboys were in serious need of a backup quarterback for Tony Romo this season and quickly moved to sign Kyle Orton this offseason. Orton comes with a distinguished resume and was perhaps one of the best quarterbacks the Cowboys could have chosen this year. Dallas inked the 29-year old former starting quarterback to a handsome 3-year deal worth nearly $11 million dollars...
IRVING, Texas -- There's a lot on Bruce Carter's plate entering his second NFL season. Because he was recovering from a torn knee ligament, the North Carolina product missed the first half of his rookie season. When he did see game action, the inside linebacker was mostly used on special teams.
But being the 40th overall pick, the expectations are much higher in Year Two...
Tony Romo doesn't need to be looking over his shoulder, no matter what Kyle Orton says.
Orton, the Cowboys' new backup quarterback, caused a minor stir during OTA's by saying he's not content being second string.
"I feel like I've played good ball in this league," Orton told the Cowboys' official web site. "I feel I've got a lot of good...
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins is expected to show up for this week’s mandatory minicamp. He likely won’t participate because of a shoulder injury that he’s currently rehabbing.
If Jenkins really wants to be traded, then the smart move would be to continue to hold out and hope that the Cowboys give in and trade him...
Everybody loves a list and I've got one for you: the top ten most colorful characters in Dallas Cowboys history.
Please understand that this is not a list of the team's top players, though some of the best players in team history are on it. It is not a list of the most beloved players in franchise history, though it is dotted with players deep in the heart...
HOOP IT UP
How does Tony Romo stay in shape before the football season begins? Apparently by playing some basketball at local gyms.
It was in the middle of January in 2002 when I first walked into the Tae Kwon Do studio in my hometown.
Inside that studio, I met my first true athletic rival when I was 12-years-old. His name was Corey.
Corey and I had an interesting relationship. We didn’t hate each other by any means, but we weren’t friends by any stretch.
Corey had started classes roughly two months before...
Not exactly what the ladies want to hear, amiright? It was an odd day for Lawrence Vickers at the Dallas Cowboys OTA. He suddenly had a bad case of ants in the pants. “Fire ants got in my pants,” Vickers said, per Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News. “I was freaking out. Oh, ants!” [...]
Mike Jenkins has made it known that he’s disgruntled after losing his starting job as the Cowboys have brought in both Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne this offseason. He has requested a trade and has not gotten one yet. However, he still will report to the Cowboys’ mandatory minicamp next week. This could be strictly a monetary decision as the Cowboys could fine him for missing...
Sam Hurd is about to learn the same thing Michael Vick learned. When the Feds start to tighten the screws, family and friends will be quick to turn on you to save themselves.
If you have forgotten Hurd was getting his Tony Montana on while he was playing for the Bears and Cowboys (Sam Hurd Formally Indicted on Federal Drug Conspiracy and Possession Charges).
Now, the Feds have...
