  Cowboys | Dallas will not sign tryout QBs    Mon May 17, 02:16 PM

Free-agent QB J.T. Barrett (Steelers) and undrafted free-agent QB Brady Davis (Northern Illinois) participated in the Dallas Cowboys rookie minicamp, but the team does not plan to sign either quarterback at this point, according to a source.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott expected for training camp    Sat May 15, 06:36 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is expected to be a full participant at training camp, according to head coach Mike McCarthy Saturday, May 15. 'Yeah. I have no reason not to think that,' McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: Some good news here. Prescott was setting the league on fire last year before his ankle injury. At full strength, this offense has the design and the weapons to be one of the most high-powered units in the NFL. Prescott's ability as a passer has grown and he's still a threat to pull the ball down and run - giving him further fantasy value. Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at QB5 (5.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cowboys | Four picks agree to terms    Thu May 13, 09:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys fifth-round draft choice WR Simi Fehoko, sixth-round draft choice DT Quinton Bohanna, sixth-round draft choice S Israel Mukuamu and seventh-round draft choice OG Matt Farniok agreed to terms on four-year contracts with the Cowboys Thursday, May 13, according to sources. Financia terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fehoko is a downfield threat as evidenced by his school record 23.6 yards per catch in 2019. Over 77 percent of his passes went for a first down or a touchdown during his college career at Stanford. Fehoko can run by defenders and is physical at the catch point. We'll watch him in dynasty formats in that high-powered Cowboys offense.

  Cowboys | Dallas to take a look at J.T. Barrett    Wed May 12, 03:54 PM

Free-agent QB J.T. Barrett (Steelers) is expected to try out for the Dallas Cowboys during the team's rookie minicamp this weekend, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Footballguys view: Barrett has athleticism and a strong arm as a passer. His accuracy and decision making have kept him from playing up to his potential. At this point, Barrett is a long-shot to make any roster but the Cowboys will give him a look.

  Cowboys | Brady Davis getting a look with Dallas    Tue May 11, 06:09 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Brady Davis (Illinois State) is visiting the Dallas Cowboys for a tryout at rookie minicamp, according to his agents Tuesday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Davis hurt his knee in the last game of the 2019 season and then the 2020 season was cancelled. He's an erratic passer but he does bring athleticism to the field and a rocket arm. He is a long shot to make it past the tryout.

  Cowboys | Jeff Driskel not an option yet    Fri May 7, 05:34 PM

Free-agent QB Jeff Driskel (Broncos) will not be signed by the Dallas Cowboys at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are just updating their emergency list. They may sign Driskel at some point this offseason to be a camp arm and to compete for a backup job. Dak Prescott is their starter but behind him they don't have much experience with guys like Ben DiNucci, Garrett Gilbert and Cooper Rush.

  Cowboys | Jeff Driskel visits    Fri May 7, 04:04 PM

Free-agent QB Jeff Driskel (Broncos) recently met with the Dallas Cowboys, and there is a strong chance that he signs with the team, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Driskel didn't do much with the Broncos last year. He was brought in to push Drew Lock and help teach him the ropes and Lock was regularly one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. The veteran has experience but isn't a great choice if he has to start.

  Cowboys | Dallas signs several UDFAs    Tue May 4, 01:07 AM

The Dallas Cowboys signed undrafted free agents RB JaQuan Hardy (Tiffin), WR Osirus Mitchell (Mississippi State), TE Artayvious Lynn (TCU), OL Braylon Jones (Houston), DL Austin Faoliu (Oregon) and LB Anthony Hines (Texas A&M) on Sunday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Lynn is a big-bodied blocker who tested well at TCU's pro day. He could perhaps be asked to do more as a receiver than he was in college (22 career receptions, 2 touchdowns). Hardy was a productive back for Tiffin in 2019, showcasing a nose for the end zone and good play speed with little wasted motion as a runner.

  Cowboys | Dallas signing T.J. Vasher    Sat May 1, 08:07 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR T.J. Vasher (Texas Tech) agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, May 1, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Vasher is a tall, lanky prospect with build-up speed. His 84-inch wingspan and vertical ability (to go along with his size) means he can play "above the rim" in the NFL. He's a long-shot prospect worth keeping tabs on in super deep dynasty formats.

  Cowboys | Brandon Smith signing with Dallas    Sat May 1, 07:44 PM

Undrafted free-agent WR Brandon Smith (Iowa) agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, May 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Smith has track speed that he brings to the football field. His routes need work, so that's why he fell undrafted.

  Cowboys | Dallas adding Brenden Knox    Sat May 1, 06:59 PM

Undrafted free-agent RB Brenden Knox (Marshall) agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Knox is a slasher who loves to make quick-cutting moves as a runner - sometimes to a fault. He loves to dance but can make defenders look silly. Facing more disciplined players in the NFL, Knox is going to have to dance a little less. He provides value as a receiver out of the backfield, so Knox can play on all three downs. Keep an eye on him in super deep dynasty formats.

  Cowboys | Dallas unlikely to move up    Fri Apr 23, 07:41 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones is not expected to trade up in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys really want Patrick Surtain, the cornerback from Alabama. They may be able to stay put at no.10 overall and pick him up. In fact, there's a chance that a defensive player doesn't go off the board until the first eight or so picks have been taken.

  Cowboys | Jerry Jones loves Kyle Pitts    Fri Apr 9, 10:19 AM

Florida TE Kyle Pitts has Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' attention as Jones is infatuated with him. The Cowboys would consider moving up from the 10th overall pick to get him, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Footballguys view: Pitts is one of the most exciting players in this class and he'd make the Cowboys offense even more high powered than it already is. He might be going off the board at no.4 overall so if Jones loves him he will likely have to move up to get him.

  Cowboys | Rough year for Ezekiel Elliott    Thu Apr 8, 10:34 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with career lows in rushing yards per game (65.3), yards per carry (4.0) and total touchdowns (eight) during the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Elliott's numbers should be better with Dak Prescott back under center. Without Prescott, defenses could just tee off on Elliott and the Cowboys ground game. Elliott has a current ADP of RB8 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cowboys | Jeremy Sprinkle headed to Dallas    Wed Apr 7, 03:11 PM

Free-agent TE Jeremy Sprinkle (Washington) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jerry Jones loves his Arkansas Razorbacks (that's his alma mater). Sprinkle, a fifth-round pick out of Arkansas back in 2017 hasn't done much in the pros. In 2020, Sprinkle barely saw the field for Washington playing only 219 snaps and getting three targets that he turned into one catch for six yards. Staying in the NFC East and now with the Cowboys, Sprinkle will serve as a reserve behind Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz.
