Over the course of Tuesday’s hour-long pre-draft press conference at Valley Ranch, Dallas Cowboys big-cheese Jerry Jones sat in the middle of the dais flanked by lieutenants Jason Garrett and Stephen Jones.
Here are a couple of quick updates on the fine football playing gentlemen who have and/or will be checking in with the Dallas Cowboys for a pre-draft visit as we get geared up for the NFL Draft.
The Dallas Cowboys have signed free agent linebacker and special teams player Will Herring.
Last year’s Dallas Cowboys coordinators were on “shaky ground,’’ we wrote the day after the end of the 2013 regular season. Now the ground has shaken and Monte Kiffin and Bill Callahan have been jostled — sideways.
Our report from the end of the Dallas Cowboys that has ownership considering an amicable retirement for 73-year-old defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and an elevation of his lieutenant Rob Marinelli was always a ‘consideration’ and is still in play.
Chris Boniol and the Dallas Cowboys have ‘mutually agreed’ to part ways, the special-teams assistant coach tells me today.
The Dallas Cowboys made several roster moves Tuesday starting with moving Justin Durant to injured reserve due to a continuing hamstring problem.
The eighth-year pro leads a struggling defense into an important NFC East game at the New York Giants on Sunday. It’s perhaps as close to the spotlight as Sims has been since starting his first 50 games as a top 10 pick by Detroit.
Brown was a second-round pick by Carolina in 2009 and appeared in 28 games over two seasons. He played in three games for San Diego in 2011 and was out of football last season.
The rookie receiver recovered from his slow start to be the No. 3 guy behind Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, only to have a good game in San Diego spoiled by a fumble that ended all hopes for a comeback two weeks ago.
The Cowboys originally put Livings on season-ending injured reserve after he had the second arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in the past six months during training camp.
The Cowboys thought Waters was a tight end or fullback when they cut him in 1999. He returned Wednesday as a six-time Pro Bowler who was a standout at guard for Kansas City and New England.
