Cowboys To Sign 20 Rookie FAs

Going into this crazy week, it was unclear exactly how many of the rookie free agents the Cowboys would, or even had room to sign. But they definitely didn't go short.

When camp begins on Wednesday with players reporting for physicals, it's expected that 20 undrafted rookies will be there ready, to wear a star on their helmet come Thursday, the first day of practice here in the Alamodome.

While the odds of making the team will be more difficult than ever for these rookies, who unlike players in the past, haven't had any OTA or mini-camp practices. So when they take the field on Thursday, it will be their first NFL practice of any kind.

And who knows how many reps these guys will get, as teams are now in a hurry to prepare for the season. But they're at least on an NFL roster now and that's at least a good start.

Here's a list of the 20 players expected to sign with the Cowboys officially on Wednesday:

Chris Randle, CB, Utah State
Mario Butler, CB, Georgia Tech
Kennan Mace, DE, Lindenwood
Lamark Armour, DE, Ole Miss
Matangi Tonga, DE, Houston
Justin Taplin-Ross, S, Utah
Collin Zych, S, Harvard
Orie Lemon, LB, Oklahoma State
Dan Bailey, PK, Oklahoma State
Corey Adams, LS, Kansas State
William Bradford, NT, Northeastern (Okla.) State
Alex Albright, OLB, Boston College
Kevin Kowalski, C/G, Toledo
Pepa Letuli, G, Hawaii
Jose Acuna, OT, Nevada
Chris Jones, P, Carson Newman
Zack Eskridge, QB, Midwestern State
Phillip Tanner, RB, Middle Tennessee State
Lyle Leong, WR, Texas Tech
Raymond Radway, WR, Abilene Christian
