Cowboys Extra Points: Free Agency, Draft and Schedules

Sam Hurd is the most recent player to sign his tender. Still nothing from Miles Austin or Gerald Sensabaugh, however both showed up in Valley Ranch for the off-season workout program. ESPN Dallas explains free agency rules and deadlines.

Robert Brewster has been cleared by the medical staff to return to football. The offensive lineman’s best position would be right tackle or guard. Brewster was drafted in the 3rd round of the ’09 draft but sat out the entire season due to a torn pectoral muscle.

The 2010 NFL Draft begins this Thursday, April 22nd at 6:30 p.m. CST. The first round will be held Thursday, the second and third rounds on Friday starting a 5 p.m. CST and rounds 4-7 on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. CST. We will have a live thread with continuous updates for the draft. See ya then!

The Dallas Cowboys official website has been redesigned. In my opinion its clean and bright, almost too white, and will take some getting used to as far as the layout. Check out the new design here.

The NFL will announce the complete 2010 schedules tomorrow at 6 p.m. CST on NFL Network and NFL.com.

Cowboys Make Moves for 75 Man Deadline

Watch out for several moves today around the league as the 75-man roster deadline looms.

The Cowboys have already made their transactions.

Rob Phillips reports,

The Cowboys trimmed their preseason roster to an NFL-mandated 75 players on Tuesday by releasing rookie WR Julian Hawkins, placing rookie LB Brandon Williams (torn ACL) on injured reserve and placing rookie OL Robert Brewster (torn pectoral muscle) on the physically unable to perform list.

Nothing really unexpected or controversial there.

Deadlines

September 1 — Roster cutdown to maximum of 75 players.

September 5 — Roster cutdown to maximum of 53 players.

Keith Davis Signed With Miami

Another Cowboy leaves Dallas for Miami. Safety Keith Davis signed with the Dolphins yesterday in what they are calling a "depth" move by Bill Parcells. Davis agreed to a two-year $3.5 million deal.

At age 29, Keith Davis is excellent on special teams but never developed fully as a starting safety. In addition, Davis experienced a torn pectoral muscle and opted for surgery to repair it after the season ended.

Do you remember "the kiss"?
Well if you didn’t see this move coming I don’t know what to tell ya
