Six Practice Squad Players Retained; Signed To Futures
IRVING, Texas – In a standard procedure this time of year, the Cowboys re-signed six players from their practice squad, and added them to the reserved/future list.
Contracts of practice squad players expire after the last regular season games and players can technically sign with other clubs if they desired.
The Cowboys kept the rights of six of their eight practice squad players, including wide receiver Tim Benford, who has been with the club for two full seasons now.
Lewis, Wetzel and Stewart were all added towards the end of the regular season, while Rayford joined the Cowboys via trade beforethe season started and played seven games. He was later waived and signed to the practice squad.
The team will probably sign a few more players this offseason as street free agents. With those players, combined with draft picks and undrafted rookies, it will make up the 90-man roster heading into training camp.
