The NFL Combine starts next week in Indianapolis, and with it comes the beginning of rumor season. Every general manager and coach in the league will be in town, along with a multitude of NFL agents trying to secure their clients a deal. Read

FRISCO, Texas – At this point you should have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Cowboys in the coming months. Read

The NFL draft has been the be-all, end-all for this organization for the past five years. It’s how they prefer to build their roster, and it will once again be a focal point for the organization in 2017. Even without a top-flight pick, like last year, the Cowboys’ front office has expressed its confidence in building through the draft. Read

NEWALLA, OK

With Chaz Green not being able to be on the field, do you think Dallas would take an offensive tackle to replace Doug Free in the future? Read

Bryan: I agree with your Chaz Green concern. If healthy he's a great option but that hasn't been the case for two seasons. I could see them looking at this draft class for a replacement or working Emmet Cleary there in camp to see if he could handle the job.  Read

FRISCO, Texas – As good as he was on the field during his debut season, Dak Prescott was equally adept off it. Read

Throughout the ups and downs of a 13-3 campaign, the rookie quarterback handled himself like a seasoned veteran. He answered every question correctly, avoided a brewing quarterback controversy and never seemed to let the spotlight affect his play. Read

Perhaps that’s why, in the moments following his win at NFL Honors, where he was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year on Saturday night, it was interesting to see Prescott in a more candid light. Read

FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys’ path forward was so clear in watching the Atlanta Falcons race to a 28-3 lead during Super Bowl LI. Read

True to their identity, the Falcons rolled to a 25-point third quarter lead on the strength of their historically explosive and efficient offense. Their MVP quarterback hit open receivers, never leaning too much on his All-Pro receiver to make plays. Read

When Matt Ryan wasn’t doing his thing, he was letting the Atlanta ground game gash New England for 10 yards per carry – 86 total rushing yards before halftime. Read

HOUSTON, Texas – If there was any doubt about Jerry Jones’ legacy, it was erased on Saturday night. Read

On the eve of Super Bowl LI, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its seven 2017 inductees, including Jones – the Cowboys’ legendary owner and general manager since 1989. Read

Speaking to reporters after the announcement, Jones recounted the jubilation in his Houston hotel room when he heard the famous knock at the door – the arrival of Hall of Fame President David Baker arriving to tell him the good news. Read

Posted

HOUSTON, Texas – In the span of less than one year, Dak Prescott has gone from the 135th pick to the first in his class. Read

That much was obvious without an award, but Prescott cemented it Saturday night at NFL Honors. Early in the evening, the Cowboys’ Pro Bowl quarterback was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year – capping off a rookie season unlike anything the league has ever seen. Read

Posted

HOUSTON, Texas – It was only fitting that, on this momentous night for the Dallas Cowboys, Jason Garrett added one more piece of hardware to the trophy case. Read

Team owner/general manager Jerry Jones was in the midst of accepting his nomination to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and Dak Prescott had recently been named NFL Offensive Player of the Year. Read

Amid all that commotion, it was Garrett who heard his name called as the NFL’s Coach of the Year. Read

FRISCO, Texas – On what might amount to one of the most impactful weeks of his distinguished career, it felt fitting that Jerry Jones would sit here of all places. Read

The third floor executive conference room sits just 10 feet from Jones’ office, where he oversees all Dallas Cowboys operations as both their owner and general manager. More pertinent to this story, the floor length windows afforded him a sunny, shining view of the Cowboys’ headquarters at The Star – the breathtaking expanse of mirrored glass ­­­and manicured grass the organization now calls home.

FRISCO, Texas – The wait for this season to mercifully end has felt longer than the wait for the Green Bay game. Read

The entire month of January felt like so much clock watching. First, we were waiting for the Cowboys to get finished with a meaningless Philadelphia game. That led to a two-week wait for their playoff debut. Read

We all know how that went. Read

That 34-31 loss to the Packers wasn’t even three weeks ago, but it feels like a godawful eternity – an un-ending wait for the season to finish so we can turn our attention to the next step. Read

Posted

FRISCO, Texas – Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones isn’t ready to discuss Tony Romo’s long-term future. He made that perfectly clear at the Senior Bowl last week.  Read

As he awaits word on whether or not he’ll be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, however, Jones was more willing to look back on the past – specifically, Romo’s 10-year tenure as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback. Read

MOBILE, Ala. – I felt a much different vibe this year while I was scurrying around Ladd-Peebles Stadium during Senior Bowl practices. It just felt strange and unfamiliar. Read

There’s a few obvious reasons for that. This time last year, the Cowboys had been out of the running in the NFL playoffs for roughly six weeks. We’d had plenty of time to examine the draft field, and we were consumed with the need to find the Cowboys a new quarterback. Read

MOBILE, Ala. – You don’t need to know anything about Cooper Kupp to see him shine. Read

The unheralded Eastern Washington receiver is one of the most decorated players in FCS history, but he arrived at the Senior Bowl with the predictable “small school” tag. Read

He quickly set about shedding that tag, though, as he has routinely dusted his North Team competition at practice – highlighted by 2015 Thorpe Award winner Desmond King, out of Iowa. Read
