Trade for Cowboys: The Cowboys are clearly desperate for interior offensive line help. After losing both of their starting guards this offseason, the Cowboys replaced them with Nate Livings, an inferior player who really struggled in Cincinnati last year, and Mackenzy Bernadeau, a career backup who has yet to nail down a starting job thanks to injuries. 2011 4th round pick David Arkin is believed to be the favorite to start week 1 at right guard, with Bernadeau remaining a backup despite already getting paid a 3.25 million dollar signing bonus. Meanwhile, at center, Phil Costa, who really struggled last year, missed time this preseason and is questionable for week 1 with back problems.
Ryan Cook is a versatile offensive lineman who can provide depth inside for them. He only played 21 snaps as the Dolphins’ backup center last year, but he used to be a starter both at right tackle and right guard for the Vikings a few years ago, though he was pretty mediocre. The Cowboys will be in tr...

Chad Johnson, who was recently let go by the Miami Dolphins a few weeks ago, used his Twitter to show how sad he is about not being able to play as himself in Madden 2013.

The Miami Dolphins just completed one of their worst preseasons in team history. For only the 3rd time in franchise history, the Dolphins failed to win a preseason game. The crazy thing is, the losses aren’t THAT terrible, but it’s how they Dolphins have looked that is troubling. Last night, in the 1st quarter, the [...]
I don’t know if it is the curse of Hard Knocks or the Dolphins are just that bad. At the beginning of training camp I thought they could be a sleeper team.
By the end of the training of camp, I am thinking they could be the worst team in the league.
They just have bad karma surrounding them.
This is not real life…team plane backed into another plane right before take...
In what was probably the best cheerleader showdown of the preseason, on August 10th the Dolphins took on the Buccaneers. Which means that the Dolphins cheerleaders and the Bucs cheerleaders were in the same building doing their thing on the same field. That to me is an event.
Boy is it hard to determine which squad is better. The fun however, is in watching them and not...
Tight end Jason Witten will be a game-time decision for Week 1 vs. the Giants, according to team beat writer John Ellis.
Witten continues to recover from his lacerated spleen, and John Phillips and rookie James Hanna would pick up the workload at tight end if the former All-Pro is not deemed fit for the opener. And it is worth noting that Witten has not missed a game since 2003.
Cowboys TE Jason Witten will not need surgery on his injured spleen, according to NFL Network.
Witten has not been ruled out for next Wednesday's season opener against the New York Giants, but a return in Week 2 seems to be a more realistic target. He has not missed a regular-season game since his rookie season in 2003 when he suffered a broken jaw.
According to tweets from...
Lance Dunbar was stressing all day about getting on the field in the preseason finale for the Dallas Cowboys.
NFL teams have until 9 p.m. this evening to trim their rosters to 53 players. Hundreds of players will be released this afternoon but could the Miami Dolphins be looking at adding a wide receiver via trade? Miami has struggled this preseason to find a legitimate number one receiver. This week Miami worked out a trio of receivers.
Miami brought in veteran Donte Stallworth who was...

When the Cowboys begin their preparations in earnest for Wednesdays regular-season opener at the New York Giants, Mike Jenkins can be on the practice field.
Jenkins was removed from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, clearing the way for him to possibly play against the Giants despite missing the entire offseason, training camp and four preseason games because of...
It’s the most exciting time of the year, the start of football, and I don’t mean the boring preseason stuff, but the real stuff.
Wednesday, the defending Super Bowl champions’ New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys kick of the 2012 NFL season. This game has what we all want to see, a rivalry, the champions of the year before, and last, but not least two teams that hate each...
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones can’t help but agree with Giants linebacker/defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka that they’ve been “whupping” the Cowboys over the past few seasons.
“I agree with him, and the only thing I’m saying is that I’ll never get used to it,” Jones told USA Today Sports.
“It is tough (being) on the outside looking in,” Jones said of the...
