For those Cowboys fans who believe that the HBO series ‘Hard Knocks’ cursed the Cowboys last season, you will be pleased to learn that the Cincinnati Bengals will be the feature team this summer. I guess with all the drama and illegal action in Cincy, it should be rather interesting to watch the likes of Ocho Cinco and Chris Henry ‘knock’ around. Oh yeah, and Tank Johnson’s there now, too.
Several sources believe that the draft, which was said to be aimed at improving Special Teams, may leave linebacker Bobby Carpenter without a job. Talk about a draft bust…
Speaking of players who should question their value on the team, Greg Ellis better watch his back. Ellis is 34 and this will be the last year of his contract. How many linebackers did the Cowboys draft again?
It never was a guarantee that the free agent Keith Davis would be brought back but after the ‘special teams’ draft, it’s certain his days in Dallas are behind him. DMN reminds us of Davis’ very interesting tenure with the Cowboys:
Davis definitely had an interesting tenure with the Cowboys. He made the team as an undrafted free agent in 2002, then was cut the following year after getting shot while in the parking lot of a strip club, putting him in position for Bill Parcells to make an example out of him. After a stint in NFL Europe, he earned his way back onto the Cowboys’ roster and was a special teams stud and occasional fill-in starter for the next six seasons, during which he survived another gunshot and spent a training camp with the Dolphins.
Now for some good news for all of you ‘Die Hards’:
The Cowboys first preseason game is exactly 3 months and 14 days away. And, only 4 months and 14 days until the first game of the 2009 Dallas Cowboys Football season.
