The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is the part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Dallas Cowboys, that player is defensive end Sean Lissemore.
At defensive end, the Cowboys used a rotation of 4 different players at 2 spots in 2012. Those 4 players were Jason Hatcher, Kenyon Coleman, Marcus Spears, and Sean Lissemore. With the exception of Lissemore, none of those guys were very good and none played more than 428 snaps.

The veteran Coleman (33) likely will be cut.

OXNARD, Calif. Jason Wittens spleen injury has the Dallas Cowboys scrambling for help at the tight end position while also hoping the All-Pros recovery does not impact his availability for the teams regular-season opener on Wednesday, Sept. 4 against the Giants.

The Dallas Cowboys open their preseason tomorrow night at Oakland. It makes some sense to head over to DallasCowboys.com for the latest team news.
However, if you visited there at 12:20 a.m. Central time, you would have discovered that the Chicago Bears had taken over the entire site. Here’s a look:

The competition for the No. 3 receiver role has been one of the most highly contested and closely watched battles throughout Cowboys training camp.
Going into their first preseason game against the Oakland Raiders, the leader of the competition was Kevin Ogletree who was followed closely by training camp stud Cole Beasley.
Other receivers competing for the spot were Andre Holmes...
If football was all you’d be watching in tonight’s Dallas vs. Oakland NFL Preseason showdown, I’d suggest maybe skipping the game for Stars Earn Stripes. Luckily, though, the two...

The long anticipated return to live action for the Oakland Raiders ended in a 3-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in their preseason opener. The score in preseason games matter little because the starters and contributors play very little. The Raiders were able to get a look at the players on the roster and evaluate the strength and weaknesses.
Not quite ready for primetime
Cowboys, 3 – Raiders, 0
I confess to having watched every second of the trainwreck last night that was Cowboys vs. Raiders. The ugliest NFL team in the ugliest NFL town playing in the ugliest NFL stadium in front of the ugliest NFL fans against the team with one of the ugliest post-season track records over the past decade and a half can...
