Cowboys Extra Points: Tying Up Loose Ends

With the recent signings of Montrae Holland and Alan Ball, the Cowboys have only Miles Austin and Gerald Sensabaugh left to sign their tenders by June 15 or have a long-term deal in place. Last week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters that “both are in line for a long-term contract”.

Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland, has apologized to Cowboys first round pick Dez Bryant for asking whether his mother a prostitute. The apology came after it was learned that Ireland posed the question during a pre-draft interview with Bryant.

In a complet about-face, undrafted tight end Scott Sicko reversed his position and has agreed to terms on a free-agent contract with the Cowboys, and will attend the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend. Sicko initially decided not to pursue any NFL offers when he failed to get selected in the NFL Draft, and was going to return to school. Jerry Jones can be very convincing when he wants something, huh?

After the season DeMarcus Ware had surgery to remove a bone spur. When asked if he was 100% yet, he replied:

“I would never say 100 percent. I would say 94 percent. The surgery went well. I had a bone spur, and they just shaved it down. Now, everything is good.”

Gotta love Ware’s attitude and personality! We love you #94!

        This topic was actually brought up at last year’s owners meetings. Prompted by players like Devin Hester who continue to wear their number that doesnt jive with their position. Not sure what the results were, but worth looking into. BTW Cletis Gordon was assigned #27 and so was Ansah. More # descrepincy! lol

      Maybe they got a pass on 45 since all the others in the 90s were de/dt/olb and all the 50s were taken. hodge, l.williams and woods are VERY unlikely to make the team, so 50,52 and 55 should open up.Carp might even get traded or cut so 54 could be an option as well. If Lee trades in his # Im betting on 55. (close to his college #45)
