It’s been a standing tradition with the Cowboys here recently that all rookies have to eventually earn their star.  When the rookies come into town this Thursday for the start of a rookie minicamp, they won’t receive a star on their helmet until they make the final roster at the conclusion of the preseason of their rookie year.

Randy Gregory decided to take matters into his own hands, forearm actually, and get his star before he is even signed with the team.

ARLINGTON, Texas – Charles Haley knows a thing or two about coming to the Dallas Cowboys with a little controversy attached to his name.

His message to second-round pick Randy Gregory: Just go play.

In August 1992, a few months before Gregory was born, the Cowboys traded for Haley amid reports that portrayed the perennial All-Pro as a malcontent in the San Francisco 49ers’ locker room.

IRVING, Texas – Lost behind all the running back talk is the surprising fact that Dallas did not address the loss of Dwayne Harris during last weekend’s NFL draft.

They seem to have rectified that in their undrafted free agent signings, however. Of their 15 undrafted signings, five play wide receiver and contend for a job as both the Cowboys’ No. 5 receiver and as key special teamers. Harris caught just seven passes for 117 yards in 2014, but his value in kick coverage, punt coverage and as the team’s main return man can’t be understated.

I’m still in the process of digesting the Cowboys’ draft class, but something stood out to me during our wall-to-wall coverage of the 2015 NFL Draft this past weekend.

Take a closer look at the draft picks throughout the NFC East, and you can see the Cowboys’ rivals gearing up to contend for the top spot. In a division that hasn’t seen a repeat champion since 2004, the difference between the playoffs and not is razor thin – just ask the 2013 Cowboys and the 2014 Eagles.

IRVING, Texas – The NFL Draft has come and gone just like that.

The Cowboys were scheduled to get seven players but ended up with eight, thanks to a last-minute trade in the seventh round.

IRVING, Texas - Two of the best pass-rushers in Cowboys history have worn No. 94. And now, they’re hoping Randy Gregory can someday follow in those footsteps.

Big shoes to fill? Of course. Was it the right move to do this? Of course.

PRYOR, OK

Do you see the Cowboys going after La'el Collins after this investigation is over?

Nick: I think they will be as interested as 31 other teams. Any time you can get a player rated in the top 15 of the draft as an undrafted free agent, you have to look into it. But it’ll come down to where Collins can get on the field and shine the quickest and that’s probably not Dallas.

IRVING, Texas – The NFL Draft has come and gone just like that.

The Cowboys were scheduled to get seven players but ended with eight, thanks to a last-minute trade in the seventh round.

So as the rookies get ready to come to Valley Ranch this coming weekend for the start of a three-day minicamp, let’s take a closer look how these new players can fit into their roles, along with their overall chances of making the team.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Cowboys’ offensive line sticks together, on the field and off it.

Maybe that’s one reason they’ve been so good – good enough that the organization didn’t feel compelled to reach for a running back in the draft.

Posted

ARLINGTON, Texas – Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the team immediately spoke with Greg Hardy on Friday night to address the controversial Sept.

ARLINGTON, Texas – It certainly seems like business as usual for cornerback Brandon Carr, despite ongoing speculation about his future as a Cowboy.

IRVING, Texas – My guess is Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never met the band members from the group Yes, and those guys from the 1970s English rock band won’t file a copyright infringement against the Dallas Cowboys.

         But with the beginning of the 2015 NFL offseason, along with this weekend’s NFL Draft, the title of this platinum album Yes released in 1972 appropriately characterizes life with your Dallas Cowboys:

         Close To The Edge.

IRVING, Texas – It sounded like a pre-draft smokescreen when Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said the running back position wasn’t a must. It even sounded insincere when he repeated himself after the first two days of selections.

When Jones finally addressed the media on Saturday night after drafting eight players – none of them ball carriers – it started to sink in. It might not have been the Cowboys’ intention, but they made it through 256 selections in the 2015 NFL Draft without taking a running back.

IRVING, Texas – For an organization defined by glamorous tradition, the Cowboys’ 2015 draft could be categorized as (silver and) blue collar.

Five of their eight draft picks, including first-round cornerback Byron Jones and second-round defensive end Randy Gregory, were dedicated to defense. Their three offensive selections were two tackles and a blocking tight end.

IRVING, Texas – While the theme of the draft will remain a defensive-oriented weekend, the Cowboys made a mini-flurry of blockers in the seventh round, even making a trade to pick up another pick.

In all, the Cowboys picked three times in the seventh round, getting yet another offensive tackle in Laurence Gibson (Virginia Tech) and then traded a future pick in 2016 to get Texas tight end Geoff Swaim.

IRVING, Texas - The Cowboys added the best defensive end in free agency and perhaps the most talented pass-rusher in the draft.

But that didn’t stop them from adding depth to the position, drafting Ryan Russell from Purdue with the 27th pick in the fifth round and 163rd overall.

Russell, a local product from nearby Carrollton, started 47 games over his four-year career for the Boilermakers. The 6-4, 270-pound prospect had 44 tackles and three sacks in his 12 starts last season.
