Dallas Cowboys:

latest news at page 1:
    Daniel Jones ran for his life and Saquon Barkley ran for a highlight-reel touchdown. But Brian Daboll’s Giants finished flat and fell to Cooper Rush and the division rival Dallas Cowboys, 23-16, on Monday Night Football for their first loss of the season. They also lost veteran receiver Sterling Shepard to a non-contact left knee injury on Jones’ final throw of the night: an interception to Cowboys corner Trevon Diggs after receiver David Sills had slipped on his route. Jones’ offense had gotten the ball back on their own 9-yard line, down 7, with 1:45 to play and a chance to tie. That was thanks to a third-down stop by safety Julian Love and defensive end Jihad Ward on Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson. The Giants simply couldn’t cash in. Dallas (2-1) scored 17 answered points in a 10-minute second half stretch to overcome a 13-6 Giants lead. Barkley had put the Giants up seven with a blistering 36-yard TD run with 5:31 to play in the third quarter. Rush and the Cowboys quickly answered, however, with 75-yard and 89-yard...
    The Dallas Cowboys owe their fans and the Monday Night Football audience an apology for the way their offense played against the Giants. NFL Twitter definitely doesn’t follow the old advice that “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” We know that because Twitter had only mean things to say about the Cowboys‘ offensive performance against the Giants on Monday Night Football. None of it was particularly unfair either. Dallas didn’t manage to score a touchdown until the final seconds of the third quarter. They dropped passes, missed field goals and generally looked a mess.NFL Twitter wants brain bleach after being exposed to woeful Cowboys offenseHow this game is tied is beyond embarrassing for the Cowboys — Damien Woody (@damienwoody) September 27, 2022 It is so painful that the Dallas Cowboys can never have an elite offense and elite defense at the same time.

    Getty Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman appears on a red carpet. The Dallas Cowboys are set up for a major NFC East clash with the New York Giants, but one former QB is generating even more buzz with his comments. Dallas and New York are two of the most storied franchises in the NFL, with the Giants winning four Super Bowls in their history and the Cowboys winning five. A key cog in three of those Dallas titles was Troy Aikman. Aikman has spent his post-football career in color commentary, but his latest off-the-cuff words are drawing ire from Giants fans. In an interview with the Dallas Morning News, the six-time Pro Bowler expressed his thoughts on New York’s recent issues. “I’ve seen a team that’s pretty fortunate to be 2-0,” Aikman said. “Defensively — I don’t want to say they’re like the Cowboys, because I do believe the Cowboys overall are a far better team than what I’ve seen of the Giants. Offensively, they’re just struggling. I think the offensive line’s a work in progress —...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy looks on during an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys are once again elevating Will Grier to serve as the team’s backup quarterback against the New York Giants in Week 3. Joining him on the active roster is nine-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters who is expected to take snaps at guard in the Monday Night Football matchup, per The Score’s Jordan Schultz. Not only is Peters active for Week 3, but the veteran offensive lineman will no longer be on the team’s practice squad as Dallas signed their former rival to the active roster. “Cowboys are signing OL Jason Peters to their 53-man roster today, person familiar with situation said,” The Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken tweeted on September 26. “QB Will Grier and TE Sean McKeon are standard elevations. All will be in uniform tonight at Giants. McKeon to be busy on special teams.” According to Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher, Peters could potentially start for the Cowboys in the team’s Monday Night Football showdown against the Giants. Regardless, Peters will...
    Saquon Barkley was a Daniel Jones overthrow away from roasting the Cowboys’ Micah Parsons in man coverage for a 75-yard touchdown pass last October in Arlington, Texas. Instead, the ball sailed incomplete over the running back’s slant route, Barkley inadvertently stepped on the ankle of Cowboys corner Jourdan Lewis and the Giants’ 2021 season spiraled into disarray. Barkley and Parsons are friends. They both played at Penn State. They hang out. Barkley claims he never trash-talked Parsons about what should have happened on that play. “No, I don’t think that conversation came up,” Barkley said with a smirk Thursday. “I kind of tried to put that game behind me.” But the Giants have it on tape: proof they have an answer to Parsons. That’s significant because Parsons is the main man standing between the Giants and their first 3-0 start since 2009 on Monday Night Football at MetLife Stadium. “He’s a problem,” Giants coach Brian Daboll said of Parsons. “He’s a dynamic football player. He has rare pass-rush ability. We’re going to have to have a good plan for him....
    Getty Images Quarterback Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott signed an extension with the Dallas Cowboys last offseason but his contract continues to be an interesting topic of conversation. Prescott inked a four-year extension worth $160 million, which made him the second-highest paid quarterback in the league at the time. However, the market moves quickly and he’s since been surpassed in average annual value by Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, Deshaun Watson, Josh Allen and Derek Carr. For the Cowboys organization, things get a little more complicated next season when Prescott’s cap hit rises from $19.73 million this year to a whopping $49.13 million. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones made it clear that the Cowboys will be looking to do something about that sooner than later. “When we had the negotiation with Dak, that was always — it was never really about the money. It was more about the length,” Stephen Jones said during a radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan on September 23. “The more you can spread these contracts out, the more...
    Getty Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Miles Boykin cuts upfield after a catch. As the Dallas Cowboys move onward with their season after a middling 1-1 start, improving the team through trade or free agency feels imperative. The headlines around the team have focused on quarterback Dak Prescott’s injury and how backup QB Cooper Rush is stepping in, but Dallas was struggling to score before Prescott fractured his thumb. That feels, in part, due to the Cowboys’ receiving options. CeeDee Lamb was somewhat back to normal with seven catches and 75 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, but only had 29 yards in Week 1. Noah Brown came up in a big way against the Bengals as well, but the rest of the Cowboys’ options haven’t made big impacts. If the Cowboys want another option on top of Michael Gallup returning from injury, a cheap move for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Miles Boykin would make a lot of sense. Boykin’s stock is low right now, but the former Baltimore Ravens receiver has shown he has a nose...
    Getty Images Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys talks with Cooper Rush. Jerry Jones caused quite a commotion with the idea of a Dallas Cowboys quarterback controversy and Cooper Rush doesn’t quite agree with his owner’s line of thinking. Rush is playing in relief of Dak Prescott, who fractured his thumb in the Cowboys’ opener. Rush was solid in just his second career start last week, helping Dallas to a 20-17 victory with 235 yards and a touchdown. He’ll make another start on Monday Night Football against the Giants and Jones voiced that if he keeps winning, it could cause a stir. “Of course I would. Of course. That means we’d have won,” Jones said of the idea of welcoming a QB controversy. “If he comes in there and plays as well as Prescott played, Rush? Played that well over these next games ahead? I’d walk to New York to get that.” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones entertained idea Cooper Rush could play well enough, team could win enough to force decision at QB when Dak Prescott able to...
    Getty Amari Cooper #2 of the Cleveland Browns makes a catch during the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium on September 22, 2022 in Cleveland, Ohio. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images) The Cleveland Browns have led the NFL in headlines over the last six months with a parade of controversial acquisitions, blockbuster trades and, most recently, an improbable late-game collapse. Amid all the bluster, conjecture and fiery hot takes, a few developments were bound to get lost in the hoopla. One such development happened to be the Browns’ bargain-bin acquisition of former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper, who reminded the entire league on Thursday night just exactly the kind of player he has been since bursting onto the NFL scene eight years ago. Cooper exploded in the Browns’ win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, pulling down seven catches for 101 yards and a touchdown. The performance hinted at even better things to come once placeholder quarterback Jacoby Brissett is replaced by three-time Pro Bowler Deshaun Watson in Week 13, following his 11-game suspension. The receiver’s...
    Getty Cowboys DE Dante Fowler could be a potential trade target. The Dallas Cowboys could be looking to unload a former highly-touted draft pick. As noted by Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine, the one of the trade targets that the Las Vegas Raiders should target is none other than linebacker Dante Fowler. Ballentine argues that the Raiders need help when it comes to rushing the passer, with Maxx Crosby the only player having registered a sack so far this season. While Fowler has impressed in his first two games as a Cowboys, he’s been limited in snaps due to his role as a situational pass-rusher (24 percent of defensive snaps). Dallas’ abundance of pass-rushers could make Fowler expendable for a draft pick. “The 28-year-old showcased his utility as a rotational pass-rusher, but the truth is the Cowboys have an abundance of them,” says Ballentine. “Micah Parsons continues to be a game-wrecker when playing on the edge, while DeMarcus Lawrence and Dorance Armstrong are seeing more snaps than Fowler as well.Chauncey Golston and Sam Williams were right behind. So, while...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott greets fans after an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys are in an interesting position when it comes to the quarterback position, and Jerry Jones’ recent comments are only heating things up. The Cowboys owner recently turned heads by saying he would love to see backup quarterback Cooper Rush play well enough to make Dallas have a difficult decision once starting QB Dak Prescott returns from his fractured thumb. Shortly after Jones made his comments on Rush and Prescott, Elliott was interviewed by the media and was asked about Jones’ words, in the context of media narratives. The Cowboys RB could only dismiss Jones’ words as “clickbait.” “People on TV get clicks, get views. You’re going to say the most outrageous stuff to get the most attention. Who knows if they even believe it,” Elliott initially said, before answering a follow-up about Jones’ comment specifically: “There you go. That’s a classic example [of clickbait.] He wants you to be clicking and listening to him too. It’s all marketing, man, It’s all marketing.”...
    Sheriff, get that cowboy!  Texas Cowboys fan Michael Duncan and his horse Sheriff took a detour from the tailgate to trot through Walmart to get Sheriff a bucket so he could also imbibe - on water.  Just like fans are thirsty for a rare win from the team, Sheriff was parched for a big blue bucket of water. That's the reason Duncan giddied up through Walmart to the delight of grocery shoppers and the internet.  'I freaking can’t believe I had to leave tailgate to get a new bucket in Walmart for Sheriff Duncan some water!!' Duncan, who wore a Dak Prescott jersey perched on his horse, wrote on Instagram.  It would hard to say if the horse or its owner is a bigger Dallas fan, as the animal was decked with blue streaks through his mane, a blue tail, and a blue fuzzy unicorn horn.  The gentle horse calmly trotted into the Walmart, stopping in the vestibule for Duncan to ask: 'Can he come in here?' An employee didn't answer and they continued their journey through the store in...
    Getty Images Browns receiver Amari Cooper. Amari Cooper is looking like a true No. 1 receiver for the Cleveland Browns and quarterback Jacoby Brissett is happy the Dallas Cowboys decided to deal him. The Browns landed Cooper in an offseason trade with the Cowboys for just a 2022 fifth-round draft pick. The move freed up some cap space for Dallas but also removed a reliable set of hands from the lineup — something the Cowboys desperately need right now. Cooper got off to a slow start in Cleveland in Week 1, notching just three catches for 17 yards. However, he’s gone for over 100 yards the last two weeks, collecting a pair of touchdown passes. Cooper’s presence in Cleveland has been a major boost for Brissett, who is filling in for Deshaun Watson for the first 11 games. After the Browns topped the Steelers on Thursday, Brissett offered effusive praise for Cooper and took a subtle shot at the Cowboys. “I’m glad they did it,” Brissett said after the win. “I mean he’s been unbelievable, he’s one of...
    The Dallas Cowboys offense appears to be on track to get one of their top players back for their Week 3 matchup against the New York Giants. With Dak Prescott sidelined with a thumb injury, the Dallas Cowboys were given no shot of defeating the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. They managed to pull out a 20-17 victory with Cooper Rush starting at quarterback. Now, the Cowboys have a huge game on Monday Night Football, as they take on their NFC East rivals, the undefeated New York Giants. The Cowboys are expecting one huge player on offense to return, and no, it’s not Prescott. While speaking with the media on Thursday, Sept. 22, head coach Mike McCarthy says he expects wide receiver Michael Gallup to make his season debut against the Giants. However, McCarthy stresses that there will be a limit in snaps for Gallup. #Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy says he expects WR Michael Gallup to return from his ACL injury and play MNF vs #Giants. His play count will be limited. McCarthy says Gallup won’t play 70 snaps. Cowboys...
    A Dallas Cowboys fan decided to ride his horse through a Walmart to celebrate the Cowboy’s win on Sunday. In videos posted online, the fan can be seen in a Dak Prescott jersey while on the horse walking down different aisles. The horse had a fake unicorn horn, and its hair was also dyed to match the Cowboy’s colors. “Just walked that som bitch around,” Pat McAfee described while he watched the video on Pat McAfee Show. “‘Scuse me I need to go to aisle seven to pick up the big balls of Cooper Rush.” McAfee continued to give praise to Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones. “What an unbelievable team the Cowboys have,” added McAfee. “That’s all because of Jerry Jones‘ marketing, because of how faithful they are, and how bought in they are.” @wannamay21 #fyp ♬ original sound – 687 @yaboiikale horse in walmart ????#viral #walmart #fyp #cowboy ♬ original sound – Kale In a video, police seem to have stopped the man on a horse and questioned him about why he brought a horse into the...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones speaks to the media at a press conference. The Dallas Cowboys made two signings ahead of the team’s rivalry matchup against the New York Giants in Week 3. The Cowboys are bringing back wide receiver Dennis Houston, who the team released earlier this week as Dallas efforted a bit of roster gymnastics. Dallas was able to re-sign the rookie wideout to the team’s practice squad after the former Northern Illinois playmaker passed through waivers unclaimed. Houston had two receptions for 16 yards on five targets in the Cowboys’ Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers. The Cowboys also re-signed linebacker Mike Tafua, who the team released prior to finalizing their 53-man roster for Week 1. The former Utah standout defender signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent, spending both the offseason and training camp with the team. What Does the Move Mean for Tolbert?When the Cowboys released Houston, there was some speculation that rookie Jalen Tolbert may get an opportunity to be active for the first time in his NFL...
    Getty Head Coach Mike McCarthy of the Dallas Cowboys. With tensions rising in the Big Apple, the Dallas Cowboys could find a solution for their receiver woes by turning to a rival. Giants star receiver Kenny Golladay is only playing 36% of the snaps through the first two weeks of the seasons, including just two plays in Week 2. This is less than ideal for a receiver who the Giants inked to a four-year, $72 million contract in 2021 and has a $13 million salary for this season. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler noted the Giants could be open to trading Golladay, but New York would likely need to eat a good portion of the receiver’s deal to find a suitor. “The Kenny Golladay situation in New York is far from over,” Fowler wrote on September 21. “When a receiver with a $21.15 million cap hit plays two snaps on Sunday, there’s no coming back from that. This is the classic case of a new regime — GM Joe Schoen, coach Brian Daboll — taking over a contract...
    Former New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton may not take over the Dallas Cowboys next season as many have speculated he would.  Ever since Sean Payton shocked New Orleans and left the Saints team he had coached since 2006, there were speculations as to why he decided to leave at this particular moment. One reasonable assumption was to think that Payton wasn’t done with coaching: he just wanted to lead a different team instead. Then there were reports that Payton expected to coach the Miami Dolphins in a massive deal that sought to involve Tom Brady. That deal fell through, but there were still questions as to whether or not Payton would eventually return to take over one of his former teams: the Dallas Cowboys. Critics have lamented the ineptitude of Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, wondering aloud when exactly he’s going to get replaced. Now, there’s a familiar face to associate with his potential replacement, and Payton’s brilliant work with the Saints over the years would be welcome in Dallas. However, those waiting on Payton may have...
    Getty Owner Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys looks on before a game. The Dallas Cowboys hosted a trio of quarterbacks for a September 21, 2022 tryout, per the NFL transactions wire. Case Cookus (Northern Arizona), Reid Sinnett (San Diego) and J’Mar Smith (Louisiana Tech) were among the players the Cowboys took a look at headed into Week 3. Dallas is likely exploring adding a quarterback to the team’s practice squad. Will Grier has been on the team’s practice squad but was elevated to the active roster for Week 2 to serve as the backup quarterback behind Cooper Rush as Dak Prescott continues to recover from thumb surgery. Sinnett has had several stints with the Eagles dating back to last October when Philadelphia claimed the signal-caller off waivers. Philly released Sinnett during the preseason but later re-signed the quarterback to the team’s practice squad. Sinnett was released again by the Eagles days later, and at the very least, would have some familiarity with one of Dallas rival’s system. The Cowboys face the Eagles on October 16...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott evaluating some notes during an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys are in a state of despair. Their star quarterback, Dak Prescott, is out for the foreseeable future unless you take the medical advice of Dr. Jerry Jones seriously. While they surprisingly won their Week 2 home matchup versus the Cincinnati Bengals, no one is titillated by quarterback Cooper Rush. That has raised some speculation around the league that the Cowboys could be looking to make a move. In the latest betting circles, a former New York Jets quarterback has now surged to the top of the pile of choices.Ryan Fitzpatrick a Betting Favorite for Dallas CowboysAccording to BetOnline.ag, currently retired former Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is among the betting favorites to fill in at QB for Dallas.

    Getty Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith tackles New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley. The Dallas Cowboys could be seeing a familiar face when they line up against the New York Giants on September 26 for a Monday Night Football clash. There is always added spice to an NFC East matchup when a player has switched sides, and Dallas is no stranger to that dynamic. Just recently, the Cowboys signed former Philadelphia Eagles legend Jason Peters. Last season, Dallas had to face off against former second-round pick and linebacker Jaylon Smith. It appears another encounter is on the cards as Smith is rejoining the Giants after a period as a free agent. “The Giants signed veteran LB Jaylon Smith to their practice squad and released OL KC McDermott,” the Giants’ official editor Dan Salomone Tweeted on September 19. As the Giants confirm, Smith is currently only on the practice squad. However, it is certainly possible that New York promotes him Smith has been trying to find his footing in the league since his release from Dallas midway...
    Getty Ben Roethlisberger is considered a betting favorite as a quarterback option for the Cowboys. Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is being mentioned as a possible option for a hated rival. As written by Noah Strackbein of Sports Illustrated, Roethlisberger is at 50/1 odds of being signed by the Dallas Cowboys, according to BetOnline.ag. The odds were released following Dak Prescott’s thumb injury, which is expected to sideline him for several weeks. Those are actually the seventh-best odds of the quarterback options mentioned by Strackbein. “According to BetOnline.ag, Roethlisberger could find himself in Dallas as their next quarterback to be signed. Currently, he sits at 50/1 odds to join the Cowboys this season,” said Strackbein on Wednesday, September 14. “The favorites to sign in Dallas are Garret Gilbert (4/1), Ben DiNucci (5/1), Nick Foles (11/2), Gardner Minshew (6/1),” says Strackbein. “Other retired quarterbacks such as Ryan Fitzpatrick (13/2), Andrew Luck (66/1), Phillip Rivers (50/1) and Drew Brees (66/1) are also on the list.”Roethlisberger May Have Been Forced Into RetirementRoethlisberger retired at the conclusion of the 2021 season after spending...
    Getty Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cole Beasley makes a dive for the endzone. The Dallas Cowboys have rebounded from a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but are now seeing a former receiver join the NFC South team’s ranks. Dallas is now 1-1 after a last-second win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but took a 19-3 beating in Week 1. It could’ve possibly been worse, but Tampa Bay’s passing offense somewhat struggled as quarterback Tom Brady couldn’t link up with his receivers. However, the Buccaneers have now added an important new weapon to their mix: Cole Beasley. Beasley is well-known amongst Cowboys and Buffalo Bills fans thanks to his ten seasons in the league, but he now has a new team in Tampa, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. “News from @gmfb: The #Buccaneers are signing veteran WR Cole Beasley to their practice squad with the expectation he’ll be elevated to the active roster soon, source says,” Garafolo Tweeted on September 20. “Tom Brady pushed to bring in another veteran pass catcher and has had Beasley on his...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy looks on during an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys released rookie defensive tackle John Ridgeway as part of the team’s roster gymnastics prior to the Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cowboys made the move to open up a spot for quarterback Will Grier to move up to the active roster in hopes that the team would be able to re-sign the defender after he passed through waivers. Not only did Dallas strike out, but the team’s rival in Washington claimed Ridgeway. The Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken reported that the Commanders were just one of several teams to put in a claim for the rookie. “Cowboys hoped to re-sign NT John Ridgeway to practice squad this afternoon. But they lost him. Commanders were awarded Ridgeway on waivers,” Gehlken tweeted on September 19. “They weren’t the only team to submit a claim on the rookie fifth-round pick from Arkansas either, a person close to situation said.”Quinn on Ridgeway: ‘Has All the Traits of a Really Good Nose...
    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is sidelined with a hand fracture after the season-opener, but he may be back much sooner than anticipated. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is sidelined with a hand fracture following the Week 1 season-opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His initial anticipated return timeline was six to eight weeks, but now he could reportedly be back much earlier, potentially even by Week 3, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Jones told Kristi Scales of 105.3 The Fan, “He’s got a chance, maybe the third or fourth game.

    Getty Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott celebrates after a big play. The Dallas Cowboys are 1-1 after Week 2, and they may be getting back starting quarterback Dak Prescott from his injury sooner than expected. After Prescott fractured his thumb in the Week 1 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, things were looking grim for the Cowboys. Dallas had not looked impressive against Tampa in any aspect, and Prescott was facing a potential injury reserve stint. Now, things are looking up. Dallas beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-17 for their first win of 2022, and Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones revealed that Prescott could be ready for the team’s Week 3 clash against the New York Giants. “He’s got a chance, maybe the third or fourth game,” Jones said to 105.3 The Fan during a pregame chat, per the New York Post. “We’ll see what happens.” It’s nothing set in stone, but it is certainly a positive update for Cowboys fans after some of the early reports stated that Prescott could have had a recovery time of 6-8 weeks.

Bryant has made some headlines recently after making a pitch about how he could help the receiver-needy Cowboys if they signed him. But it sounds like Sunday’s trip to AT&T Stadium was more about fun than petitioning Jones and Co. for a roster spot.

    It took Amari Cooper less than one quarter in Week 2 to catch a touchdown from a backup quarterback — it’s a shame it wasn’t from Cowboys QB Cooper Rush. Dallas wide receivers struggled to get much separation in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even before the Dak Prescott injury — which otherwise doomed their passing game — the likes of CeeDee Lamb and Co. didn’t make much of an impact. With Cooper Rush taking over this week, Lamb must prove he can be a true No. 1 receiver, and fast. Meanwhile, Dallas’ former top wideout scored an early touchdown against the New York Jets, making his own backup quarterback in Jacoby Brissett feel quite comfortable. all day to throw, wide open in the endzone. you love to see it ????: #NYJvsCLE on CBS????: Stream on NFL+ https://t.co/5tBLYXUhpL pic.twitter.com/GavvJMWlWB — Cleveland Browns (@Browns) September 18, 2022 Cowboys could use Amari Cooper right about now It’s obvious revisionist history, but Dallas could use Cooper right about now.

    Getty Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy looks on during an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys made a series of roster moves ahead of the team’s Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Key pass rusher Tarell Basham was placed on injured reserve, while the team also released rookie nose tackle John Ridgeway. Dallas’ decision to keep Dak Prescott on the active roster partially led to the release of Ridgeway as the Cowboys have three quarterbacks on the 53-man. Basham will miss at least four games as he recovers from a quad injury. The veteran defender played in all 17 games last season for Dallas, including six starts, notching 39 tackles, 11 quarterback hits, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Dallas signed both quarterback Cooper Rush and kicker Brett Maher to the 53-man roster, meaning they will no longer have to be moved up each week from the team’s practice squad. The Cowboys also elevated Will Grier and center Alec Lindstrom from the practice squad. The Cowboys Hope to Re-Sign Ridgeway If He Clears Waivers:...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones speaks to the media at a press conference. The Dallas Cowboys are officially going with the two other quarterbacks on their roster in Dak Prescott’s absence, at least for Week 2 versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Dallas announced several roster moves ahead of the Bengals matchup, including signing Cooper Rush to the 53-man roster and making Will Grier active from the team’s practice squad. Rush will start in place of Prescott while Grier steps into the backup role against the Bengals. The roster moves gives the quarterbacks a little more solid footing as both players were released prior to Week 1 only to be re-signed by the Cowboys. Dallas had been keeping both quarterbacks on the practice squad, and elevated Rush prior to the team’s season opener against Tampa Bay.

    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gives a thumbs up to fans before an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys are in a tough position at the quarterback position, but a trade for a Jacksonville Jaguars passer could mitigate the damage. Dallas will be without starting QB Dak Prescott for at least four weeks and potentially longer after the 29-year-old quarterback suffered a fractured thumb against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1. Heavy has explored various solutions for Dallas as they move forward with Cooper Rush and Will Grier as their options, but one that hasn’t been considered is Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback CJ Beathard. Beathard is currently backing up Trevor Lawrence in Jacksonville, but the former Iowa Hawkeyes star has a great deal of starting experience in the NFL thanks to his time with the San Francisco 49ers. A trade for Beathard would be a cheap, proven option and the Cowboys would be upgrading their quarterback depth should Rush struggle in his Week 2 start against the Cincinnati Bengals. Further, Dallas has depth at an important position the...
    Getty New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh pointing something out during an NFL game. A common phrase in 2022 reads, “it is what it is.” That is a perfect way to encapsulate the current status of New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims. After a promising first season that showed glimpses of potential, it has been all downhill for the former Baylor product. So much so that he is frozen in carbonite on the bench. He was a healthy scratch in Week 1 and that isn’t subject to change anytime soon.Denzel Mims Heading to the Green Bay PackersKristopher Knox of Bleacher Report recently revealed his NFL trade big board heading into Week 2. Mims was the No. 3 player on the list based on the likelihood that he is dealt sooner rather than later. The first team that was mentioned in a potential trade proposal was the Green Bay Packers. “The Packers would be a logical suitor given their receiving struggles in Week 1.

    Getty Jimmy Garoppolo #10 of the San Francisco 49ers looks to pass the ball in the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium on January 30, 2022 in Inglewood, California. While there was incredible hype surrounding the San Francisco 49ers‘ new starting quarterback Trey Lance heading into Week 1, he failed to reach expectations. During the season opener against the Chicago Bears on a very wet and soggy Sunday at Soldier Field, he went 13-of-28 for 164 yards, with zero touchdowns and an interception during the team’s 19-10 loss. The Niners were immediately slammed with criticism from analysts across the league calling for backup Jimmy Garappolo to start instead, but Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice said that’s nonsense.

    Getty Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore prepare a play. The Dallas Cowboys had a dud of an offensive performance in Week 1, and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is already receiving public criticism. Dallas was beaten 19-3 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to begin the 2022 regular season, and that scoreline speaks for itself. After scoring a field goal on the opening drive, the Cowboys failed to muster any real offensive traction the rest of the game. Some responsibility falls on the players and the fact that quarterback Dak Prescott was injured, but Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is calling out his offensive coordinator. McCarthy spoke to the media on September 16, and stated that Moore has to be “smarter” with his decisions. “Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Kellen Moore has to be smarter in his play calling,” Star-Telegram reporter Clarence Hill Jr. Tweeted. “McCarthy said Moore needs to be more conservative.” McCarthy said Moore needs to be more conservative https://t.co/RnMGIRyBVd — Clarence Hill Jr (@clarencehilljr) September 16, 2022 More specifically, The Athletic...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stands on the field prior to Super Bowl 51. With Dak Prescott sidelined, the Dallas Cowboys are turning over the offense to backup quarterback Cooper Rush, at least for Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the Cowboys opted not to make a quarterback trade, and instead will lean on Rush as the team’s temporary QB1. It will be interesting to see if the team has a change of heart if Rush struggles in his expanded opportunity. “As of now, Cowboys do not plan to pursue significant trade for a QB barring unforseen change, per source,” Fowler tweeted on September 13. Cowboys won’t take any possibility completely off table, but with Dak Prescott’s improved timeline and Cooper Rush’s familiarity with offense, team feels it can be patient.”McCarthy on Cowboys Offense With Rush: ‘We Don’t Feel Like There’s Really Any Limitations’Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy noted that the team has no plans to have “any limitations” with the offensive attack under Rush.

    Getty Images Owner Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys continue to investigate all their options to find a fill-in for Dak Prescott and free agent former MVP Cam Newton is a name that the team is being urged to pursue. Prescott is expected to be out at least four weeks following thumb surgery after going down in the Cowboys opener. Dallas’ options are limited when it comes to finding a replacement for the two-time Pro Bowler that’s not on the roster already. But Newton is available and should be a top target, per Bleacher Report’s Alex Ballentine. “Desperate times call for desperate measures—like calling up a 33-year-old Cam Newton,” Ballentine wrote. “This is one of those moves that is more likely to fail than succeed, but it’s worth a shot.” The idea of Newton has been pitched by others, including Cowboys Hall of Famer Drew Pearson. “Call Cam. Call Kaepernick. Call anybody out there,” Pearsons said according to TMZ. “We got to have somebody there with some experience, some game experience.”Newton Has Struggled in Recent Seasons...
    Getty The Cowboys could consider making a trade for Andy Dalton. The Dallas Cowboys could bring back one of their former quarterbacks, according to one analyst. As proposed by Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports, the Cowboys could look to New Orleans Saints QB Andy Dalton to solve their quarterback dilemma. With Dak Prescott sidelined due to thumb surgery, Dallas “could explore” a trade for their former quarterback. Dalton previously started nine games for Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore when Prescott was sidelined for 11 games during the 2020 season. “Though unlikely, the Cowboys could also explore a trade, such as for current Saints backup Andy Dalton, one of the NFL’s most experienced No. 2 QBs,” says Benjamin. “Dalton spent 2020 in Dallas, notably starting nine games in place of an injured Prescott during Mike McCarthy’s first year as Cowboys coach.”Dalton is Cheaper Option Compared to GaroppoloDalton wouldn’t exactly be the most appealing of options, but he could be acquired for low draft capital and at a cheap salary (salary is under $2 million for this season)....
    Getty Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Mike McCarthy speak to the media during a press conference. A former Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns executive is saying it like it is: the Dallas Cowboys have an issue of quality on the roster. There’s no question that Dallas has some promising young stars on the team: defensive end Micah Parsons, cornerback Trevon Diggs and wide receiver CeeDee Lamb are all talented and have had early success. That success at an individual level is encouraging, but an early exit from the 2021 playoffs and uninspiring 19-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 are prime examples of the lack of success the Cowboys have had over the past two decades and under current head coach Mike McCarthy. Former Eagles president Joe Banner explained to Heavy NFL insider Matt Lombardo that the difference between the dynasty teams of the 1990s and now is simple: top-level talent across all positions, especially on the offensive line. “If I were looking at the Cowboys and I were trying to figure...
    Getty The pressure is on Seahawks general manager John Schneider (left) and head coach Pete Carroll. The Seattle Seahawks may have found their QB1 in Geno Smith despite plenty of skepticism about the veteran’s viability as a starting signal-caller. With the Dallas Cowboys need at quarterback following Dak Prescott’s injury, could the team make a call to inquire about Drew Lock’s status? The Seahawks continue to remain high on Lock’s potential but the quarterback is on the final year of his $7 million rookie contract. If Seattle is committed to Smith for the remainder of the 2022 season, the Seahawks could listen to trade offers to at least get something in return for Lock given his upcoming free agency. Prior to the season, the Seahawks signed veteran Sean Mannion who would step into the QB2 role under this scenario. Given Lock’s inability to win the starting quarterback competition, it is hard to imagine the former Broncos starter has a lot of trade value. Seattle would likely only be able to command a future day-three pick from Dallas,...
    Getty Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott wants the football. Ezekiel Elliott is making it clear he needs more carries as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2. Elliott campaigned for a strong emphasis on the rushing attack as the team attempts to get their first win of the season. “I don’t know if there is a [specific] number of carries [needed], but I think we definitely have to commit to running it,” Elliott explained during a September 14, 2022 press conference. Elliott was asked in a follow-up question if his 10 carries in the season opener was enough to which the star rusher responded with a quick “no.” Despite Elliott’s effectiveness with his carries, the Cowboys opted not to rely heavily on the running back against the Buccaneers. Elliott had 10 rushes for 52 yards, averaging an impressive 5.2 yards per carry. Zeke: ‘I Think It’s Important, Period, to Establish the Run Game’The Cowboys will need to get creative with Dak Prescott sidelined for at least the next month. Elliott admitted the team...

Parsons was set to begin his weekly appearances on FS1’s “Undisputed” on Tuesday alongside Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe and Skip Bayless. However, the All-Pro linebacker backed out, feeling it was better if he focused on football after a turbulent week in Dallas. “My starting QB went down and we lost,” Parsons told reporters on September 14. “I just didn’t think it was appropriate for me to be on the show at that point. I need to step up and be a leader. It shouldn’t be on TV, it should be in this locker room.

    For Dallas Cowboys fans expecting the team to make a play for a starting quarterback to fill-in for Dak Prescott, it’s time to end the dream. The Dallas Cowboys‘ season has gotten off to the worst start imaginable. The offense already struggled in the season-opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and then starting quarterback Dak Prescott left the game with what was revealed to be a fractured right thumb, and will be sidelined for multiple weeks. For Cowboys fans wanting the team to make a move for a big quarterback with Prescott sidelined, don’t count on it. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Cowboys are not planning to pursue “a significant trade for a quarterback barring an unforeseen change.” Fowler brings up that Prescott’s timeline for a return as a reason, in addition to backup Cooper Rush having a familiarity with the team’s offense. As of now, #Cowboys do not plan to pursue significant trade for a QB barring unforseen change, per source. Cowboys wont take any possibility completely off table, but with Dak Prescotts improved timeline and Cooper Rushs...
    Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons was AWOL on Fox Sports Tuesday after he previously agreed to appear on Undisputed on a weekly basis. His unexplained absence led co-host Skip Bayless, a die-hard Cowboys fan, to speculate if Sunday night’s home loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might have played a role. Dallas put up a mere three points as its offense stalled. Tom Brady’s team cruised to victory after putting up only 19 points in Jerry World. The Cowboys’ defense played well, as Brady was intercepted once and Parson sacked him twice. But when it came time for Parson’s weekly spot with Bayless and his co-host Shannon Sharpe, he didn’t show. The pair speculated as to why. “What I do know is that originally, Micah Parsons badly wanted to join you and me on Undisputed every Tuesday during football season,” Bayless reminded Sharpe. “We had equipment installed in Micah’s home in the Dallas area.” Bayless reminded his viewers Parsons shared his excitement for a weekly spot on the show on Twitter a few weeks ago.

    ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith sneered at his colleague Chris “Mad Dog” Russo on Wednesday for predicting that the Dallas Cowboys will win the NFC East despite losing starting quarterback Dak Prescott to injury. Prescott is expected to miss between six and eight weeks after having surgery on his right thumb, which he injured during the Cowboys’ 19-3 loss to the Buccaneers on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. During Wednesday’s First Take, panelist Marcus Spears predicted the Eagles would win the division. Russo, citing the Eagles almost losing to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, said he’s “not convinced that the Eagles are some juggernaut in the East.” Russo said that “Dallas has a good defense” and that running back Ezekiel Elliott “looked pretty good last week in short little display, he played well.” Elliott had 10 carries for 52 rushing yards. Russo remarked that backup quarterback Cooper Rush is “not a disaster as the backup quarterback. He’s not Jake Fromm.” Fromm was on the New York Giants last year and was ridiculed for doing a quarterback sneak at the Giants’ 2-yeard line...
    Getty Colin Kaepernick during the Michigan 2022 spring game on April 2, 2022. Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t the only name linked to the now quarterback needy Dallas Cowboys. While Garoppolo is the current San Francisco 49ers representative attached as a possibility to provide depth in the wake of Dak Prescott enduring a right thumb injury, another signal-caller with 49er ties has had his name brought up by two Hall of Famers from the Cowboys: Colin Kaepernick. And two men who made the No. 88 revered for the franchise offered differing takes on Kaepernick heading to Dallas: Drew Pearson and Michael Irvin. ‘Call Kaepernick’ Pearson, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2021, believes his former team should be working the phones to assist Cooper Rush and Will Grier — the remaining healthy quarterbacks on the Cowboys roster as Prescott deals with his injured thumb. Pearson’s suggestions are two men who once played in a 2014 NFC playoff game on the same field: Cam Newton and Kaepernick. “Call Cam. Call Kaepernick. Call anybody out...
    Getty Carolina Panthers wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. makes a move upfield during an NFL game. The Dallas Cowboys are reeling from a poor offensive performance in Week 1, which included a concerning showing from the team’s wide receivers. Dallas totaled 198 passing yards on 42 passing attempts from quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush. Obviously, Prescott getting injured plays a factor in the success of the passing offense, but even the Cowboys’ starter averaged 4.6 yards per completion before his fractured thumb. While the Cowboys are waiting for Michael Gallup and James Washington to recover from their injuries, Dallas may consider a trade for a new pass-catcher. In terms of options, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. should be one to consider. The second-year receiver has had a tough start to his NFL career after joining the Panthers as a second-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft. Marshall started just three games in his rookie season in 2021, and played zero snaps despite being healthy in Carolina’s 26-24 loss in Week 1. With the Panthers trading...
