Found June 16, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Will Allen and Barry Church are the favorites to start at safety for the Cowboys this season. Of all the draft picks from the 2013 class, J.J. Wilcox has been impressive. He’s around the ball, whether it’s making an interception or a knockdown. You can tell he’s picked up the defensive scheme well. The favorites to start at safety are Barry Church and Will Allen, but Wilcox has made more plays than Matt Johnson, a draft pick from last year, who didn’t play a snap because of hamstring and back issues. Wilcox has to continue his good work in training camp and the preseason to move up the depth chart. Need NFL Tickets?

WR Dez Bryant says Cowboys playbook the same, ‘intensity’ is different

Much has been made over play calling in Dallas this offseason, but for Dez Bryant the playbook and plays are the same, it’s the intensity that is different.

Looking at the Cowboys offense By The Numbers

Over the next several weeks, I want to do what I attempt to do every summer, which is to take a good look back at the previous season. There are enough people on the interweb speculating about what could happen in 2013 and what they learned from OTA's. That is great sometimes, and I enjoy their work. But, I usually have enough time for that at Training Camp and with the preseason...

Most Obscure Player of 1984: Norm Granger

  The Cowboys faced several issues in 1984, and many of those related to personnel. The team’s talent level had fallen, and stars such as Drew Pearson and Harvey Martin were replaced with more mediocre players. Poor drafts did not help matters. Dallas spent its first pick on Texas A&M linebacker Billy Cannon Jr., who lasted only half of one season because of injuries. The...
