Two business associates of former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Eugene Lockhart Jr. have been sentenced to prison in a $20 million mortgage scam.
A federal judge in Dallas sentenced William Randolph Tisdale Jr. on Wednesday to 10 years for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud. Hubert Jones III of Garland must serve nearly five years in prison for wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud.
Lockhart pleaded guilty to wire fraud in August 2011 and awaits sentencing. He faces up to 10 years in prison.
Tisdale and Jones were convicted in February.
The Dallas Morning News (http://dallasne.ws/VIe7e3 ) reports that prosecutors have described Tisdale as the leader of the Dallas-based scam.
Lockhart played for the Cowboys from 1984 through 1990 and for New England in 1991-92.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is worried about his team's upcoming match-up with the New York Giants because of injuries, saying, "we wanted all hands on deck."
It is difficult to find trends of success through 6 games from this Cowboys' offense. In week 1, they did many things very well and looked balanced and competent. Since then, the Garrett-Romo offense has been anything but consistent, with a horrendous performance in Seattle, near absence against Tampa Bay, a turnover machine versus Chicago, and then a power-running team against...

IRVING Aside from a 29-point outburst in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the Cowboys have struggled to score points. On Sunday, they'll face a New York Giants team that has scored at least 30 points on three separate occasions and averages 29.3 points per game.
So why haven't the Cowboys been able to hit the 30-point mark? They met or exceeded that total five times last...
Lawrence Vickers knows he is a rare breed.
In prior decades, it would not be uncommon for an NFL team to carry two fullbacks. Now, some clubs such as the Detroit Lions don't have even one on their 53-man roster, as H-backs and sixth offensive linemen fill blocking roles.
Vickers, though, has that job with the Dallas Cowboys because the franchise is committed to the position...
