Six Safeties Among Group Working Out For Cowboys Friday
IRVING, Texas - The Cowboys have a large group of players at Valley Ranch on Friday to work out on the field following the regular walkthrough practice.
Of the 16 players on the field, six are safeties, including Charlie Peprah and Larry Asante. The Cowboys are also taking a look at Gerald Alexander, Rod Issac, Mikail Baker and Vince Agnew.
Peprah, who is from nearby Plano, Texas, has played five of his six pro seasons in Green Bay. He started 14 games at safety last year for the Packers. Asante has played the last two years in Tampa Bay.
The Cowboys had three punters on the list in former NFL vets Daniel Sepulveda, Chas Henry and T.J. Conley. The club is hoping Chris Jones is available for Sunday’s game despite a left knee sprain. Veteran Brian Moorman has a groin injury and will likely miss the game.
The initial workout was to include 14 players but with the punting issues, the three veterans were added to the list.
One quarterback – Chase Clement – was scheduled to work out but recently suffered a hand injury. Former Tarleton State quarterback Nick Stephens was in attendance.
The biggest name of the group is Baylor’s Robert Griffin. But he’s the guard who was drafted in the sixth round by the Jets and not the reigning Heisman Trophy winner who quarterbacks the Redskins.
Here’s the list of 16 players in attendance Friday:
Nick Stephens, QB, Tarleton State
John Haggerty, WR, SW Oklahoma
Daniel Sepulveda, P, Baylor
Chas Henry, P, Florida
T.J. Conley, P, Idaho
Robert Griffin, G, Baylor
Fendi Onobun, TE, HoustonCharlie Peprah, S, Alabama
Gerald Alexander, S, Boise State
Larry Asante, S, Nebraska
Mikail Baker, S, Baylor
