Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Cowboys’ draft class sucks. Can’t call it a bust yet, but you can say every player drafted back in April – except for Morris Claiborne – is a disappointment.
Dallas committed 13 penalties in last weekend’s 38-23 victory against Philadelphia. It was the fourth time the Cowboys have drawn 13 flags, but they’re 3-1 in those games.
A lot is expected of a top-10 draft pick, no matter their position. See who will do what once the season kicks off.
Claiborne will play the rest of this preseason in preparation for being a starter in the season-opener at the Giants.
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
With a $16.4 million, four-year contract and his wrist finally healthy, Claiborne was finally on the field Wednesday with his new team during a practice for rookies and selected veterans.
It’s my 8th annual 50 Most Powerful People in Dallas-Fort Worth Sports and, I’ll be honest, this was probably the toughest year to find a clear-cut winner.
The Cowboys signed first-round draft pick Morris Claiborne to a four-year contract. The cornerback will be able to practice starting Wednesday before training camp in California.
Critics and analysts have already formed comparisons of Claiborne to former Cowboys All-Pro and 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee cornerback Deion Sanders.
The Cowboys have said that they’re not interested in trading cornerback Mike Jenkins, but that might have changed. The Colts have reportedly made multiple trade offers.
There had been rumors that Claiborne would be practicing with the Cowboys in June, but it’s not going to happen. The team’s new draft pick won’t be available until late July.
The Dallas Cowboys begin OTAs on Tuesday, but cornerback Mike Jenkins will not be there because he wants to be traded, sources told a local newspaper.
