Cowboys | Ryan Williams added to practice squad (Sun Aug 31, 04:41 PM) - The Dallas Cowboys have signed RB Ryan Williams to their practice squad.

Our View: The Cowboys saw enough from Williams to keep him around. Williams has great natural talent for running the ball, but injuries and inconsistencies have derailed his pro career.

Cowboys | 19 cut (Sat Aug 30, 05:43 PM) - The Dallas Cowboys released RB D.J. Adams, OT Josh Aladenoye, DE Kenneth Boatright, DT Dartwan Bush, WR LaRon Byrd, OG Stephen Goodin, CB Terrance Mitchell, WR Jamar Newsome, C Ronald Patrick, DE Caesar Rayford, LB Dontavis Sapp, LB Keith Smith, SS Ryan Smith, LB William Smith, RB Phillip Tanner, TE Asa Watson, RB Ryan Williams, LB Orie Lemon and DT Zach Minter.

Our View: Byrd was an intriguing talent to keep tabs on in super deep dynasty leagues. He has a size/speed combination that can create mismatch problems. We'll see if he can stick around on the practice squad.

Cowboys | Ryan Williams waived (Sat Aug 30, 03:21 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams has been waived.

Our View: Williams will always be remembered as a "what might have been" player in the NFL. Injuries have robbed him of the athleticism and explosiveness that made him a dangerous runner in college at Virginia Tech. He's running out of chances in the NFL.

Cowboys | May carry four RB's (Wed Aug 27, 05:51 AM) - Dallas Cowboys RB's DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are locks to make the 53-man roster, and RB's Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are battling for the third spot. However, executive vice president Stephen Jones did not rule out all four making the squad.

Our View: Randle helps on special teams, while Williams is purely a running back. That the Cowboys could keep four backs is a sign of how much Randle has improved and how much Williams can provide as a back now. If Williams is released, he could get a call from another team soon.
