Flozell Will Finish His Career a Cowboy

A few more hours and his fate could have been much different, but now Flozell Adams’ career is set in place. Adams signed a 6-year deal worth around $42 million on the last day before free agency signing began. The new contract includes $15 million in guaranteed money and about $13 million in signing bonus.

Flozell Adams was drafted by the Cowboys in the second round of the 1998 Draft. He is a 4-time Pro Bowler and also selected All-Pro second team in 2007.

Adams told the press that he was happy to be in Dallas and never thought of leaving. He will turn 33 in May, so this deal ensures he will finish his career as a Dallas Cowboy, exactly where it began.

Romo Named Offensive NFC Player of the Week

Quarterback Tony Romo was named NFC Offensive Player on Wednesday.

Romo threw for a career-high 345 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-35 win over the rival New York Giants. He also scored his first career touchdown. The Cowboys scored 45 points, which were the most in a season opener since 1971 (the Cowboys went on to win the Super Bowl that year).

This is a great way to start the season, especially after they way last season ended. With talks all over the media asking if Tony Romo "is the real deal", I think he just confirmed that he’s as real as it gets. After week 1, Tony Romo leads the league is passing yards and touchdowns.

Great job Romo, keep it up!

 

Bledsoe Announces Retirement

Drew Bledsoe announced his retirement Wednesday, April 11, 2007. Bledsoe played in the NFL for 14 years, spending the last two with the Dallas Cowboys. He ranks fifth in NFL history in passing attempts (6,717) and completions (3,839) and seventh in passing yards with 44,611.

"I feel so fortunate, so honored, to have played this game that I love for so long, with so many great players, and in front of so many wonderful fans," Bledsoe said in a statement issued by his agent. "I fulfilled a childhood dream the first time I stepped on an NFL field, and the league did not let me down one time. I retire with a smile on my face, in good health, and ready to spend autumns at my kids’ games instead of my own. I’m excited to start the next chapter of my life."

Drew Bledsoe started all 16 games in 2005 as his first year as a Cowboy. In his second year, he was replaced by Tony Romo during halftime in Game 6. Bledsoe never played again but remained the offensive captain for the rest of the season.

Despite the way his career ended, Bledsoe was a Cowboy. We want to thank him for his hard work and dedication in Dallas. Bledsoe is a admirable man, he held his head up and watched from the sidelines while people booed him and Tony Romo took over. I think the way he handled it says alot about his character. Drew, we wish the best in all that you do! God Bless. 

 

Crayton For Another Year

Patrick Crayton signed the $1.3 Million Tender to continue to be the Cowboys third receiver behind Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn. He played in all 16 games last season and finished his third season as a Cowboy with career high stats.

Crayton completed 36 catches for 516 yards, along with 4 touchdowns in 2006. He also contributed 85 yards on 11 punt returns. With his numbers increasing every season, the Cowboys may be looking at a long-term deal with him next year.

Terry Glenn and Terrell Owens both have 11 years of experience under their belts. Glenn received his roster bonus in March and Jerry Jones assures us that Owens will receive his this summer. Needless to say, the Cowboys should have their eyes on some young receivers while planning for the future and Patrick Crayton is an excellent contender. 

 

Jerry Jones Honored by Irvin’s Request

 

 

 

The 10th member of the Cowboys to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is also the first to be presented by a team owner. Earlier this week Michael Irvin asked Jerry Jones to be his presenter this August at the Hall of Fame Ceremony. Jerry Jones was honored that Irvin chose him and accepted his request with great pride. Throughout Irvin’s career, Jones’ has had faith in him and stood by him through the good and bad. Now Jones will be the one to present the greatest football honor to the newest Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer. Congrats Michael!
