 Latest Cowboys Player Notes
Apr 22 2018 - Byron Jones
  CB Byron Jones is expected to see his fifth-year option picked up by the Dallas Cowboys, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Jones, who is shuffling from safety to cornerback this season, will earn $6.2 million during the 2019 season. Teams must decide on the fifth-year options for 2015 first-round picks by May 3. The options are guaranteed for injury only.


Apr 15 2018 - Dak Prescott
  QB Dak Prescott said he didn't have the clout to influence personnel moves, such has the one that resulted in the Dallas Cowboys releasing wide receiver Dez Bryant. "I'm in my second year," the 24-year-old Prescott said Saturday night, via multiple reports. "As much as you want to say, 'I want a say-so' or this and that, those guys get paid a lot more than me. That's what those guys get paid to do. That's not my decision."


Apr 14 2018 - Allen Hurns
  Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns said he will definitely not wear jersey No. 88, even though Dez Bryant is gone. Hurns, who wore No. 88 in his four NFL seasons, all with the Jacksonville Jaguars, signed with the Cowboys in March. At the time, he said he would switch to No. 17 since Bryant already wears that number. But the Cowboys released Bryant on Friday, making the number available. Despite that, Hurns said he still will not wear No. 88. "I will not be wearing 88, they might as well retire that number," Hurns wrote on Twitter. Before Bryant, former Cowboys greats Drew Pearson and Michael Irvin wore No. 88. Hurns chose No. 17 to honor the victims of the high school shooting in Parkland, Fla., in February. Hurns attended high school at Miami Carol City and played collegiately with the Miami Hurricanes before his NFL career took him north to Jacksonville.


Apr 8 2018 - Tyron Smith
  LT Tyron Smith has no complaints about his health after a balky back -- and other injuries -- forced him to miss three games and parts of two others last season. "I'm feeling great now," Smith told the team's website on Saturday while attending a football camp held by teammate Tyrone Crawford. "Actually, I feel like I'm in the best shape I've been in a while. I've taken this offseason to get back into it a little early and try to take care of my body a little more. I'm just doing the little small (rehab) things and I just feel awesome right now."


Apr 6 2018 - Kony Ealy
  DE Kony Ealy agreed to a one-year contract with Dallas. Ealy, 26, spent last season with the New York Jets, who claimed him off waivers in August following his release by the New England Patriots. A second-round pick of Carolina in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Missouri, Ealy notched 14 sacks and six forced fumbled in his first three seasons with the Panthers.


Mar 29 2018 - Randy Gregory
  DE Randy Gregory is preparing to apply for reinstatement to the NFL, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Thursday. Jones confirmed Gregory's plans with the hope that the 25-year-old can play in the upcoming season, per David Helman of the team's website. Gregory became eligible to apply for reinstatement in November but has yet to go through the process. Gregory missed the entire 2017 season after being suspended for at least one year for violating the NFL's policy for substance abuse.


Mar 29 2018 - Allen Hurns
  WR Allen Hurns was in need of a new jersey number after his previous No. 88 is currently worn by fellow Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Hurns, who signed with the Cowboys last week, opted for No. 17 -- and the Miami native offered the following for his reasoning on 105.3 The Shan & RJ Show. "The (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) shooting that was in Florida, 17 people lost their lives, so I chose that number," Hurns said, via the Dallas Morning News. The shooting occurred on Feb. 14 in Parkland, Fla.


Mar 27 2018 - Cameron Fleming
  OT Cameron Fleming signed a one-year deal with Dallas. He spent the past four seasons with the Patriots, and he started 20 of his 47 games in New England.

  OL Marcus Martin was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, the team announced Monday. Martin, a third-round pick in the 2014 draft out of USC, played his first three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, who waived him last offseason. The 24-year-old was claimed by the Cleveland Browns, but did not play last season. Martin has made 24 career starts.


Mar 26 2018 - Terrance Williams
  WR Terrance Williams suffered a broken foot, according to multiple media outlets on Monday, and he could miss a portion of offseason activities next month. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told reporters at the owner's meetings in Orlando, Fla., that Williams was injured but did not disclose the nature of the injury. According to the Dallas Morning News, Williams underwent surgery four weeks ago. Williams, 28, has never missed a game since joining the Cowboys in 2013 as a third-round pick from Baylor. In 80 regular-season games, including 66 starts, Williams has 230 receptions, 3,359 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns. He also has eight receptions for 198 and three scores in three playoff games.


Mar 24 2018 - Travis Frederick

  The Dallas Cowboys are expected to sign free-agent OT Cameron Fleming, ESPN reported Saturday. Fleming has spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots since the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2014 draft out of Stanford. The 6-foot-5, 323-pound Fleming has primarily been a reserve at both tackle spots for the Patriots, although he started 20 of 47 games. Fleming appeared in 12 regular-season games in 2017, starting six, and also was the starter in both the AFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl.


Mar 23 2018 - Allen Hurns
  WR Allen Hurns agreed to a two-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys, the team announced Friday. Financial terms were not disclosed for Hurns, who told ESPN's Josina Anderson earlier on Friday that he would sign with the Cowboys. He was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday in a move that saved the team $7 million against the salary cap.


Mar 22 2018 - Travis Frederick
  C C Travis Frederick had his contract restructured by the Cowboys. Frederick, a Pro Bowl selection each of the past four seasons, was scheduled to earn $10 million in base salary next season but the Cowboys manipulated how the money will be paid in his restructured contract. Frederick is required to make at least $790,000 in base salary as a five-year veteran, but the rest of the $10 million was turned into a signing bonus, Jane Slater of NFL Network reported.


Mar 22 2018 - Deonte Thompson
  WR Deonte Thompson agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys, the team announced on Thursday. ESPN and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Thompson's deal was for one year and worth $2.5 million.

The Cowboys sent their fifth-round pick (No. 173 overall) to the Raiders, who in turn shuffled their sixth-round selection (No. 192) to Dallas. The deal leaves the Cowboys with one fifth-round pick and three sixth-round selections while Oakland has four sixth-round picks to go with two fifth-round selections.


Mar 19 2018 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick jsigned with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday. Terms of the deal were not announced, but NFL.com reported that Scandrick agreed to a two-year deal with a maximum value of $10 million. Scandrick will join a secondary that includes Josh Norman. Scandrick might fill the slot role left vacant when Kendall Fuller was traded to the Kanas City Chiefs for quarterback Alex Smith. Scandrick requested his release before free agency started last week and the Cowboys waited until Saturday to cut him.


Mar 17 2018 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick will be granted his request and released by the Dallas Cowboys, according to a published report. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that the Cowboys have informed Scandrick of the move. The 31-year-old made his initial request to be released earlier in the week, according to the network. Scandrick is signed through 2019 with base salaries of $3 million and $4 million. If the Cowboys trade or release him, they would save $1.4 million against the salary cap.


Mar 12 2018 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick has requested his release, ESPN reported Monday. That would make Scandrick a free agent, and he said a week ago he could benefit from a change of scenery. Scandrick played 11 games in 2017, all as a starter, but back injuries limited his playing time. The Cowboys used rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis at outside cornerback and safety Xavier Woods in the slot at the end of the season.


Mar 5 2018 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE Demarcus Lawrence was hoping to secure a long-term contract with the Dallas Cowboys, but it appears the sides will not reach a deal by Tuesday's franchise-tag deadline, according to ESPN.

Feb 27 2018 - Randy Gregory
  DE Randy Gregory is not being counted on by the Cowboys to be part of their future. Gregory is currently on suspension due to multiple violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. "We assume worst case," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, per the Dallas Morning News. "We have to move forward assuming Randy is not going to be here. If he is here, obviously it's a big deal." A second-round draft pick out of Nebraska in 2015, Gregory has appeared in just two games over the past two seasons due to his multiple off-field transgressions.


Feb 19 2018 - Demarcus Lawrence
  DE DeMarcus Lawrence enjoyed a breakout season pressuring quarterbacks, and the Dallas Cowboys do not intend on letting the defensive end reach free agency.

Tuesday is the first day teams can use the franchise tag.

Jan 3 2018 - Sean Lee

Jan 3 2018 - Jason Witten

Jan 3 2018 - Alfred Morris
  RB Alfred Morris did a nice job replacing Ezekiel Elliott in his absence, rushing for 547 yards and averaging 4.8 yards per carry. He should find a job in free agency.


Jan 3 2018 - Ezekiel Elliott
  RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 983 yards in 10 games after being suspended for six for personal conduct. He probably would have won the rushing title again if he had played all 16. The key for Elliott is staying out of trouble so he can play all the games in 2018. Morris did a nice job ;


Jan 3 2018 - Dak Prescott
  QB Zac Prescott took a huge step back in 2017. There is no other way to say it. From 23 touchdowns and four interceptions as a rookie to 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions as a sophomore.
