Found January 16, 2014 on Pro Football Spot:
Mel Kiper and his famous hair gel have released their first mock draft of the year. While the Dallas Cowboys are in need of, well, a lot; Kiper has them going after Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.Dix is listed as one of the top defensive backs in this year’s draft class and would bring immediate help to a depleted Cowboys secondary.Jeff Heath and J.J. Wilcox ring a bell?I don’t believe that Dix will be available when the Cowboys are put on the clock at the 16th or 17th pick. (The team’s position will be decided by a coin flip.)So let’s take a look at Ha Ha’s career and what he would bring to the club. Plus, I like saying his name.Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, AlabamaHe’s fast, has fluid hips and isn’t afraid to tackle. How he fits with the Cowboys is that he has great vision and can anticipate and judge better than Wilcox and Heath.Of course this is based on his play in college, but he would seem to be an improvement over what the Cowboys currently have on roster.Dix has a pretty good set...

BBQ That Soothes the Cowboys Soul

  What if the Cowboys kept Miles Austin?  Could they keep him for a lower salary?  The only person that can really answer that question is Miles Austin.  Would he be willing to take a pay cut?  If he wanted to continue with his career as a Cowboy, I don’t see any choice.  The free agency market for a player who was injured as much as he was isn’t heavy so it is a possibility...

Aikman doesn't see return to Cowboys in future

Frustrated Dallas Cowboys fans would love to see three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Aikman return to the organization to help bring back the glory days. But although Aikman says he has thought about an executive role with an NFL team, it probably wouldn't be the Cowboys. "I don't think that that would happen in Dallas," Aikman said on KTCK 1310 AM. John Elway...

No playoffs? Dez Bryant still making big grabs

The Dallas Cowboys missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season, but wide receiver Dez Bryant is still playing football in January. In an open area with some buddies, Bryant makes an unbelievable one-handed catch. That was impressive, but too bad it wasn't Tony Romo throwing him the ball this time of year.

Dallas defensive tackle Jason Hatcher has been added to the Pro Bowl and will be a first-time participant along with teammates Dez Bryant and Tyron Smith.

Expert testimony limited in ex-Cowboy Brent's case

An expert for former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent's defense says the blood tests used to argue he was drunk were precise, but wrong. Janine Arvizu (ar-VEE'-zoo) testified Friday morning that the Dallas County crime lab did not properly process Josh Brent's blood tests after a December 2012 wreck that left a practice squad linebacker dead. Police say Brent...

Confident Zimmer groomed by Parcells to be head coach

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- For four years, Mike Zimmer's office with the Dallas Cowboys was right next to Bill Parcells, the Hall of Fame coach who would offer plenty of lessons and become a mentor to Zimmer, his defensive coordinator at the time.  A pen and a notepad would eventually become key instruments for Zimmer in his time with Parcells. The Hall of Famer would have Zimmer...

Aikman doesn't foresee joining Cowboys

Last Friday, I mentioned Babe Laufenberg’s thought about Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman's possible involvement in the Dallas Cowboys’ front office, similar to the way John Elway operates the Denver Broncos. It’s a terrific thought, but it would never happen. Appearing Thursday on KTCK The Ticket radio in Dallas, Aikman admitted he didn’t think it would happen...

Herschel Walker: Jason Garrett Is Not A Head Coach, He’s An OC

Herschel Walker is the resident expert on the Dallas Cowboys, but can you really dismiss the opinion of one of the greatest all around athletes to ever play the game. Walker of course was actually the catapult for those great Cowboys teams of the 90′s after he was traded to the Vikings for draft picks that turned into Hall of famers. The always opinionated Walker joined GBag Nation...

Herschel Walker thinks Jason Garrett is best suited to be an offensive coordinator

Despite yet another disappointing end to the season, the Dallas Cowboys have decided to stand pat for the most part. And while some were looking for a shakeup, particularly at the head coaching spot, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones felt that it was not necessary. So with Garrett still at the helm, fans and former players are beginning to voice their displeasure. Today’s voicing of displeasure...
