COWBOYS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Denied: Dallas Cowboys decline to pick up cornerback’s fifth year option

Cowboys Don’t Pick Up Morris Claiborne’s Option

In a less than surprising move, the Dallas Cowboys have decided not to pick up the fifth-year option on Morris Claiborne’s rookie contract (via ESPN). Claiborne, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, has struggled with injuries and inconsistency during his three-year NFL career. The Louisiana State product played sparingly in four games last year due to a knee injury. He also...

Cowboys decline fifth-year option on CB Morris Claiborne

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have declined to pick up the fifth-year option on cornerback Morris Claiborne. Claiborne's $11.08 million deal for 2016 was too much for the Cowboys as he is coming off a torn patellar tendon, and played in only four games last season. He also missed six games in 2013 due to hamstring problems. The Cowboys traded up...

Charles Haley says Cowboys got a 'steal' in Randy Gregory

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Charles Haley, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this summer, said he met with the team's second round pick Randy Gregory and can't believe the club landed a talent like his outside of the first round. Haley isn't worried about off-field issues and feels the Cowboys are built to help transition the young player...

Do the Dallas Cowboys have enough at Running Back?

The running back position was a painfully obvious need for the Dallas Cowboys as they entered this weekend’s draft with DeMarco Murray no longer in town. So, what happened when Saturday night rolled around the and the team failed to add one during seven rounds? Once Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon were off the board in the first 15 picks of the first round, it was clear that they...

Dallas Cowboys Add Intriguing Canadian QB

View image | gettyimages.com Some people believed that as Tony Romo continues to age, the team should begin to look for his replacement.  I’m not sure if the move I’m about to mention was a step towards finding that replacement or if it was simply to have an arm to throw the ball at their rookie mini-camp.  Nevertheless, the Cowboys have added QB Brandon Bridge on a tryout...

Cowboys Sign UDFA RB After Not Drafting One

View image | gettyimages.com The Dallas Cowboys have signed multiple undrafted free agent signings, and one of those signings was Synjyn Days out of Georgia Tech. This is significant, as the Cowboys have a glaring need at RB, with Darren McFadden currently heading a group that also features Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar, and Ryan Williams.  That need was not addressed in the draft...

Cowboys Draft Overview: What We Can Expect

All the hard work by the Cowboys scouts, coaches, and executives is done and we now have our newest crop of draft picks. Looking across the Cowboys fandom on twitter several of our picks were polarizing only because other players were still available when we drafted certain players, but that happens every year really. It’s now time to get behind all these picks and get onboard...

Cowboys Select Ryan Russell, DE, Purdue #163

The Cowboys have selected Ryan Russell, DE, Purdue in the 5th round, #163 overall. This is a player I had as a possible DE early on in the process, as a sleeper pick and mocked him in my 7-round mock 1.0. I think this will be a nice addition, and he’ll be into the mix. He’s a local guy, and the Cowboys have had him on their radar as well. Ben Bloom worked him out at Purdue as...

Dez Bryant Calls New 49ers’ New Alternative Uniforms “Stupid Sick”

Earlier this week, the San Francisco 49ers revealed an alternative uniform they can wear twice during the regular season. It’s the first alternative uniform in franchise history. While most fans approve, there are of course mixed opinions on the all-black styling with red numbering. One guy who loves the new look is Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Dez Bryant. He might even be...

Greg Hardy apologizes for joke about 9/11

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy is not off to a great start with his new team, and an ill-advised comment he made on Friday night about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks certainly didn’t help. After the Carolina Panthers drafted 6-foot-5 wide receiver Devin Funchess, someone on Twitter referred to Funchess and Panthers receiver Kelvin...Read More

Werder: 'Mental health' concerns for Cowboys 2nd-round pick Gregory

Former Nebraska defensive lineman Randy Gregory fell down the 60th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft into the hands of the Dallas Cowboys, who are seemingly all but willing to add to their list of players to be concerned about in 2015. It has also been reported that the Cowboys debated on taking him in the first round, 27th overall. After the pick, ESPN's Ed Werder said that...

Dallas Cowboys select Randy Gregory

Mainly due to multiple off-field issues, former Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory fell all the way to the Dallas Cowboys at pick No. 60 in the second round on Friday night. The talent certainly exists with Gregory, but the question moving forward will be if he can pass drug tests in order to showcase that talent.   He was productive in two seasons with the Cornhuskers...

NFC East: Who Won the First Round?

In what some have proclaimed as a rather boring first round of the NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins all took players who they believe will be cornerstone pieces to their franchise. The draft may have been boring, but the East featured a group of players that not many had pegged for their spots. Let’s review: Washington...

Dez Bryant goes off on Twitter follower, calls her ‘fat girl’

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was in no mood to be called “corny” on Thursday night. Just ask the Twitter follower who hurled the insult his way. Twitter user @theelectwoman08, whose account is protected, for some reason decided to tweet that Bryant is “so corny.” Dez fired back by calling her “fat girl” and...Read More

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant faces backlash over calling girl fat on Twitter

If I ran an NFL team I think I would put “NO SOCIAL MEDIA” in bright, neon bold letters at the very top of each player’s contract. Last night the number one overall pick Jameis Winston posted a picture with crab legs on his Twitter account. The Tampay Bay Buccaneers “encouraged” him to take it down: Jameis Winston was “encouraged” to take down the crab legs photo....

Dez Bryant calls woman ‘fat girl’ for calling him ‘corny’ during Twitter feud

Dez Bryant’s reputation as a hothead on the field — as well as the sidelines – obviously precedes him. But who knew the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver could be provoked into needless name-calling by a seemingly innocuous dig on Twitter? That certainly was the case on Thursday night when Bryant, no stranger to social media...Read More The post Dez Bryant calls woman ‘fat girl’...

The Dallas Cowboys select Byron Jones

The pick is in and at #27 overall, the Dallas Cowboys wasted no time in drafting the combine destroyer, Byron Jones. Dallas could have gone with a multitude of positions with this pick as they could use depth at defensive end as well as middle linebacker, but chose to upgrade their needy secondary with one of the top cornerbacks in this draft. Neither Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne...

Cowboys Select Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut

The Cowboys did not need to move up to get their next cornerstone player on defense. The Cowboys have drafted Byron Jones, CB, Connecticut #27 Overall. We did this last year, creating rookie cards for our rookie class. This year I’m doing the same as an homage to the Score 1989 series. Welcome to the Cowboys Byron.

The Dallas Cowboys selected cornerback Byron Jones with the 27th overall pick. Here's the scouting report, courtesy of Shasky Clarke (@SclarkeNFL). An elite prospect, Byron Jones is flying under the radar largely due to a lack of attention paid to a relatively irrelevant Connecticut football program. Jones has all the desired tools of a top pro cornerback. He has prototypical...

Jones: Cowboys not surprised by length of Hardy suspension

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones categorically disagrees with the opinion that the NFL took Greg Hardy’s off-the-field issues far more seriously than the team did, as illustrated by the league suspending the defensive end for 10 games, far exceeding even the most excessive of estimates. “I take exception to that,” Jones said per...Read More The post Cowboys...
