Greg Hardy hasn’t played a game for the Dallas Cowboys yet, but he’s already helping fuel the Cowboys vs Eagles rivalry.

A “WE STILL DEM BOYZ” GoFundMe page was set up yesterday accepting donations for a unique purpose.  Here’s the original copy from the page:

Cowboys Nation is coming together to raise money for a great cause. We take pride in being able to educate others, and see it as a responsibility to do so.

We feel that whenever an opportunity comes along to be educators, we must accept that responsibility.

Today we received word that the Eagles fans were going to be flying a banner over Cowboys practice that reads "WE GOT DEMARCO."

That being said, we thought it'd be funny to have some back and forth.

We decided to shoot right back at them, and brainstormed on some banner ideas ourselves.

Originally were were going to go with "KEEP HIM", but we feel a strong need to let the Philthadelphia faithful know just who won the division last season, and who is taking it again.

We are raising money to fly a banner over the Eagles' training camp on August 9th that reads

"✭ WE GOT THE DIVISION ✭"

Let 'em know!

All monies will go towards the flight, fuel and banner as well as any GoFundMe fees.

Any left over money will be donated to Children's Medical Center... whom the Cowboys players visit annually during every Christmas holiday season!

That in itself could be the end of this article, but it’s not.  Greg Hardy was contacted via Twitter to donate to the cause and it appears he pitched in $300 toward the cause.

The organizers of the project were so thrilled to have the donation from Hardy they changed the banner that will be flown.  It will now read “✭ WE STILL DEM BOYZ! #SACKSCOMIN! ✭”
 
The page has more than doubled its goal of $1,350 and has said it will donate all additional money raised to Children’s Medical Center in Plano, TX.  A great gesture by the organizers to turn this into a difference maker in the community.
 
Training camp is barely underway and the Eagles vs Cowboys rivalry is in full force.  Should be a fun season.

While the Cowboys have made it clear they have no interest in adding another veteran running back right now, there seems to be an available runner out there hoping to change the Cowboys’ minds.
 
Steven Jackson, a free agent running back who has over 11,000 career rushing yards is attempting to get the Cowboys’ attention.  Jackson sent the below tweet out earlier.

He is either letting the Cowboys know he’s available and interested in playing for them, or he’s telling them that the AT&T Stadium letters fell off the top of their stadium.
 
Jackson played the majority of his career with the Saint Louis Rams and the last two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.  He’s amassed 11,388 rushing yards and 3,663 receiving yards over his career.
 

If I told you an NFL player could dunk a basketball, that wouldn’t be surprising at all.  If I told you that NFL player was listed at 5’ 8” tall that would be impressive.  If I told you the dunk that 5’ 8” tall NFL player threw down was a reverse double pump dunk, you might call me a liar.
 
Well it’s true and here’s the proof, Cole Beasley posted this video last night on his Instagram account and it’s impressive…

Beasley also gave a shout out to Odell Beckham Jr. in his post “@OBJ_3 had his so it's only right to put one of mine up. #cowboysgiantsrivalry”.

Looks like the Cowboys vs Giants rivalry has been taken to the next level.

Since this article was first published, some others have weighed in on Beasley’s vertical ability.

Looks like Beasley’s vertical rating will go up in the next issue of Madden…

Former teammate and current Denver Bronco, Emmanuel Sanders weighed in as well…

Most Cowboys fans are familiar with 12-year veteran DeAngelo Hall, who has been an outspoken piece of the Washington Redskins defense since 2008.
 
During his tenure in the NFL, Hall has covered some of the best receivers to ever play the game.  On Tuesday he sent out the below tweet letting the Dallas Cowboys and the world know where Dez Bryant ranks on that list.

Wednesday at 3 p.m. Central Time is the deadline for the Cowboys and Bryant to work out a long-term contract or he must play the 2015 season under the franchise tag, or chose not to play.  Bryant has already stated via Twitter that he will not be at training camp unless a long-term deal is in place.

Not only is the entire Dallas Cowboys fan base tuned into the Dez contract negotiations, it appears Bryant’s peers are as well.
