Found May 30, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne was taken with the sixth overall pick in last years draft. With someone taken that high it is natural for the team to expect more than 1 interception out of the player. Before the team said anything (publicly at least), Claiborne has taken it upon himself to speak out on his struggles last year. Through Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, Claiborne was asked if he’ll improve this season. I expect a big jump for myself, and play way different than last year Claiborne goes on to elaborate on how he will play different. I felt that I needed to do it to help my game, as well. I felt a little bit last year like I was losing receivers at the top of the break and not being in front of them enough at the line of scrimmage. That was a big emphasis that I wanted to do in the offseason It is great that Claiborne is owning up to the fact that he has to play better. The Cowboys have a secondary that could use more turnovers and they just might see that from Claiborne this season. Nothing will come easy in a very tough NFC East.                   Need NFL Tickets? The post Morris Claiborne expects himself to be better in his second season appeared first on Pro Football Zone.

Johnson ready to repay faith Cowboys had in 2012

IRVING, Texas -- Matt Johnson is a very happy man these days. And considering what the young safety has been through over the course of the past year, it's hard to blame him for savoring the little things like being able to practice and being around his teammates for the first time in over a year. Johnson is of course the fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft who came to the Dallas...

Jerry Jones, Cowboys 2013 draft board leaked

Cowboys CB Claiborne gives rookie year C-minus

IRVING, Texas The harshest criticism Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne receives likely comes from himself. Throughout his rookie season, the former sixth overall draft pick rarely sounded pleased with his performance after games. On Tuesday, he gave his rookie year a C-minus grade. Claiborne started 15 games in 2012, missing one because of a concussion. He intercepted...

Dallas Cowboys Need to Take the Play Calling Duties From Jason Garrett It wouldn’t be an off-season in Dallas without a little bit of drama surrounding America’s Team.

Cowboys' James Hanna likes his chances at more playing time in 2013

Dallas Cowboys tight end James Hanna saw a good deal of the field in the later part of the 2012 season, and he hope to continue that in 2013. The team drafted Gavin Escobar in the second round of April's draft, but Hanna still thinks he'll see his opportunities. “As practice has gone on, I feel like I’ve got a chance to get on the field quite a bit,” Hanna said, via...

Dallas Cowboys Had First Round Pick Travis Frederick Rated as Second Round Talent

Jerry Jones needs to be more careful about some things--like when he lets photographers in to wherever he is to take pictures. He may think that he has the situation under control and that nothing bad could happen, but the Cowboys owner is not always right. Like when shots like this were taken of him with the team's draft board in the background that shows the Cowboys picked...

Most Obscure Player of 1982: Steve Wright

The 1982 season for the Dallas Cowboys started out notoriously, as the team lost its first opening game since 1964. The Cowboys were 1-1 when the players went on strike and remained 1-1 until play resumed in November. When the NFL returned to the field, the Cowboys enjoyed a five-game winning streak. Losses to the Eagles and Vikings dropped the team’s record to 6-3 to end the regular...

Over the past two seasons, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has shown that he can be one of the most explosive running backs in the NFL. The problem is his durability.

IRVING, Texas DeMarco Murray sat out the first four days of OTAs over the course of two weeks to protect his hamstrings, but sources tell FOXSports that the oft-injured running back did do limited "individual work" at Wednesday's Dallas Cowboys practice.
