NFL BREAKING: Deebo Samuel Signs with Niners for $72.55 Million – Tracker


FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys proceed to be newsmakers in terms of roster-building. Updated by the minute, our Dallas Cowboys 2021 NFL Transaction Tracker: News and views on the roster-building effort. 


In Dallas – goofy rumors aside – it’s the deal the Cowboys at all times knew was coming because the 49ers are giving Deebo Samuel a three-year,$71.55 million extension to stay in San Francisco, ESPN noting the deal includes $58.1 million guaranteed.


Let’s label this as “unconfirmed rumor” … and possibly a nonsensical one, too, though it will surely move the NFC East News needle: Jimmy Garoppolo is reportedly “in talks” with the Recent York Giants?

The veteran 49ers quarterback is on the outs there, after all. But don’t the Recent York Giants have already got “their guy” in young Daniel Jones? And would not Jimmy G, joining a non-contender, simply be a progress-stopper?

Oh, and while we’re digging into the rumor mill: Texas ex Tyrod Taylor can also be being gossiped about as being on the Giants radar.

For the record, we expect Jimmy G to the Seahawks is essentially the most sensible fit.


Rookie tackle Matt Waletzko injured a shoulder on Thursday, and the early evaluation has him missing the remaining of this week on account of the injury. The Cowboys aren’t revealing way more than that presently. But … 

Entering camp, he was running ahead of Josh Ball (who had fallen out of favor to some) as Dallas was opting to “go young” at swing tackle. … We’ll monitor whether than plan might need to alter. For now? Our recent list of potential free-agent tackle helpers is here.


Seattle Seahawks star wide receiver DK Metcalf is perhaps one of the talented players. within the NFL, no matter position. 

And now, he’s getting paid prefer it, with the 24-year-old signing a three-year $72 million extension. 

His latest deal will include $58.2 million guaranteed and a $30 million signing bonus. 

Metcalf’s bonus is the very best ever for a large receiver, per reports. 


As we reported on Wednesday, receiver James Washington landed awkwardly on his left shoulder while diving for a Dak Prescott deep ball on the primary day of camp. Here’s the play …

The Cowboys don’t consider the difficulty to be serious but we are going to monitor. … as within the early going today he’s participating in individual drills.

Also on the wideout plate today: The arrival of newly signed KaVontae Turpin, who will start with limited work. You may read the news on that signing here.

Also, rookie tackle Matt Waletzko injured a shoulder and is being evaluated. Entering camp, he was running ahead of Josh Ball (who had fallen out of favor to some) as Dallas was opting to “go young” at swing tackle. … We’ll monitor whether than plan might need to alter.


A foursome of former Cowboys standouts – Chuck Howley, Everson Partitions, John Wooten and the late Dan Reeves – have advanced to the finalist list for the senior class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Wooten was a Cleveland Browns star who made his mark in Dallas in scouting; Reeves, after all, played and coached in Dallas before becoming a long-time NFL head coach.


Former Atlanta Falcons and Tenneseee Titans receiver Julio Jones will sign a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per reports Tuesday from ESPN. 

The seven-time Pro Bowler spent 10 seasons with the Falcons before attempting a profession resurrection last season in Tennessee. But he appeared in only 10 games, totaling 31 catches for 434 yards and one touchdown. 

In line with Bookies.com, the Cowboys had the third-highest odds for which team Jones would play for in Week 1, with oddsmakers placing the road at +550 and giving the pairing barely above a 15-percent likelihood of happening. 

These odds are actually zero following Tuesday’s events.

Jones has the Seventeenth-most profession receiving yards in NFL history (13,330). He’ll now join legendary quarterback Tom Brady with a shot at one other trip to the Super Bowl. Brady’s Patriots beat Jones’ Falcons in Super Bowl LI, otherwise referred to as the “28-3” game.

JULY 26 JOE BURROW SURGERY It is claimed to “not be serious,” though that is what we at all times say … about someone else’s surgery. On this case, it’s about Bengals QB Joe Burrow, who’s having surgery to remove his appendix. NFL Network notes this can put the previous No. 1 overall pick “off form for a while” but that he’ll soon make a full recovery.

Why do the Cowboys care? Cincy plays at Dallas in Week 2 of the regular season. So while Burrow will likely be fantastic inside a few weeks … it’s value monitoring.

JULY 25 FORMER COWBOY IN PHILLY? Former Dallas Cowboys RB JaQuan Hardy worked out with the Eagles on Monday per Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network. The 24-year old from Tiffin College was signed by the Cowboys as an UDFA after the 2021 NFL Draft and bounced forwards and backwards from the roster to the practice squad, seeing minimal game motion before being waived on July 14, 2022  

JULY 24 ‘BAMA’S METCHIE HAS LEUKEMIA Alabama product and Houston Texans rookie wide receiver John Metchie III has announced he’s been diagnosed with leukemia. His statement:

“Recently I used to be disagnosed with APL (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia), essentially the most curable type of Leukemia. I’m currently receiving great medical care, am in good spirits and I expect to make a recovery at a later time limit. Consequently of this diagnosis, I’ll likely not be playing football this season. My predominant focus shall be on my health and recovery. Thanks upfront to your support and well-wishes. I cannot wait to come back back stronger than ever. God bless.”

Metchie was drafted by the Texans within the second round of this past draft and was expected to compete for a starting role within the offense this season. We wish him well in his fight. Read more here.

JULY 23 SURPRISE! They’re referring to it as a “surprise” in Cincinnati … but possibly a cynical Cowboys fan won’t be so surprised to learn that the Bengals have made a move ahead of coaching camp by shoving lineman La’el Collins to the Energetic/Non-Football Injury list. 

Collins was a giant Bengals addition after having been cut by the Cowboys after last season … partly, as CowboysSI.com has reported, on account of his alleged “lack of professionalism.”

The Bengals have yet to supply details. Perhaps that is an innocuous thing, or possibly it’s something out of Collins’ control. Due to this fact, insightful members of Cowboys Nation would probably be smart to withhold judgment …

While also withholding being “surprised.”

JULY 20 CUNNINGHAM MOVE: Former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham has resigned because the Raiders’ team chaplain after two seasons.

“After 2 years of serving because the LV Raiders Chaplain and far prayer, I even have decided to resign,” Cunningham wrote on Facebook. “I thank Jon Gruden for the chance to be involved. It’s just time to maneuver on.”

Cunningham, 59, starred as a QB for 16 seasons, most of that point with the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings – and as a Cowboys nemesis. The four-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro also spend the 2000 season with Dallas.

Gruden left because the team’s head coach last October while involved with controversy, with Josh McDaniels replacing him as head coach this offseason.

Cunningham’s reference to the Raiders stems from the previous UNLV star making Las Vegas his home.

JULY 18 SWITZER RETIRES Ryan Switzer, at 27, is completed playing within the NFL, citing injury problems with the type which have plagued him since he was chosen by the Dallas Cowboys within the fourth round within the 2017 NFL Draft.

“Although my playing days are over, I’m looking forward to using the knowledge and experience I‘ve amassed through the years to assist the subsequent generation of players through coaching.”

The North Carolina product spend time with the Raiders, Steelers and Browns as well.

Cowboys fans will recall our coverage of a Switzer family scare a 12 months ago when their baby boy was enduring a mysterious health scare. But ultimately …

“Our sweet baby boy is stable and out of surgery,” Switzer wrote on social media following the March 2021 procedure. “This nightmare is over with. These wonderful people in Boston fixed our son.”

JULY 16 GREGORY PUP? The Cowboys have their very own PUP list concerns as they approach camp and the regular season – see “Gallup, Michael.” But one other interesting case is unfolding with a high-profile ex Cowboy. Our guys at “Mile High Huddle” on Randy Gregory … 

“The NFL has modified the PUP rules. Before this season, a player on the PUP list couldn’t return to practice until after six games had been played. He would then need at the very least two weeks of practice before being activated. 

@Now, a player can begin practice after 4 games and be moved to the energetic roster immediately. This season, a player on the PUP list could possibly be back within the lineup by Week 5.”

For Gregory, who dumped Dallas in favor of a $14 million APY deal in Denver, this is sweet news for his return … coupled with bad news as he’s recovering from offseason rotator cuff surgery and is anticipated to miss all of coaching camp and the preseason.

Not that Cowboys Nation harbors any I’ll will here – although Gregory did label you a “toxic fan base” – nevertheless it does bear watching.

JULY 14 RB CUT As CowboysSI.com was first to report, Malik Jefferson has signed on with Dallas, and he’ll now join a linebackers room led by the stellar Micah Parsons as he works to seek out a option to stick after mostly practice-squad stints as a member of six different teams in 4 years.

The previous Texas Longhorns standout is from Mesquite, where he was amongst the very best highschool players within the country, and he was a Freshman All-American in Austin as well. At 6-2, 236, he could in theory be a prospect to assistance on special teams, or at the very least one other add to the practice squad.

To make room for Jefferson, Cowboys released running back JaQuan Hardy, mostly a practice-squadder from a 12 months ago.

CowboysSI.com also broke the story of the workout featuring a pair of USFL stars in receivers/return men Kavontae Turpin and Maurice Alexander. Read more here.

JULY 11 COWBOY TO COLLEGE Long-time Dallas Cowboys national scout Drew Fabianich goes back to high school.

“I’m very happy with my years within the NFL,” Fabianich tells CowboysSI.com. “I’m excited to now work to make an impact on kids, families and football at Auburn.

Fabianich has worked as each a coach and scout, widening his circle of data as he’s now making a move to big-time college football. He has accepted the job of GM and director of scouting and development for Auburn Football.

Fabianich was in discussions about other NFL opportunities, with some within the NFL regarding him as able to becoming an NFL GM.

But after 18 years in Dallas, he sounds enthusiastic about a latest challenge.

Said Fabianich: “It’s going to be fun making a splash – and to attempt to make a difference – with one in every of the most important and best programs in the game at Auburn.”

JULY 11 NEW OWNERSHIP The brand new Denver Broncos ownership group has added a distinguished partner in former Secretary of State and University of Denver alumna Condoleezza Rice. The Monday statement on behalf of the Walton-Penner Family Ownership Group: 

“We’re pleased to welcome former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to our ownership group. A highly respected public servant, completed academic and company leader, Secretary Rice is well referred to as a passionate and knowledgeable football fan who has worked to make the game stronger and higher. She is the daughter of a football coach and served on the inaugural College Football Playoff Committee. She moved to Denver along with her family when she was 12 years old and went on to attend the University of Denver for each college and graduate school. Her unique experience and extraordinary judgment shall be an important profit to our group and the Broncos organization.”

Rice was the U.S. secretary of state from 2005 to 2009 under President George W. Bush.

JULY 8 LB SIGNED The Cowboys made a handful of roster moves Friday, officially signing kicker Lirim Hajrullahu together with linebacker Christian Sam.

The Cowboys also placed linebacker Devante Bond (knee) on injured reserve to make room for Sam.

Sam, a 6-2, 240-pound native of Allen, most recently played within the USFL, and before that was drafted within the sixth round by the Patriots in 2018.

Sam, 26, has yet to play a regular-season game, having been on various practice squads since.

On Friday the Cowboys also worked out a gaggle of free agents. Amongst those, as reported last week by CowboysSI.com, is linebacker Malik Jefferson, a third-round select of Texas in 2018 and who has been on various practice squads.

JULY 7: JAMES CAAN PASSES From “The Godfather” to “Elf,” James Caan did all of it in Hollywood – including using his experience as a university football player to portray the ill-fated Brian Piccolo in TV’s “Brian’s Song,” keyed by Piccolo’s relationship with Bears teammate Gale Sayers.

The legendary actor, and former Michigan State football player, passed away on the age of 82 on Thursday.

Caan eventually moved from East Lansing to attend Hofstra University in Recent York, where he met Francis Ford Coppola, director of “The Godfather” – and the remaining is, very literally, film history.


E.J Smith, the son of legendary Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith, had a handful of top programs recruit him coming out Jesuit school in Dallas in 2019 

Big-time programs like Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Michigan were just just a few of many to supply the 6-0, 208-pound running back. Even his dad’s alma mater, Florida, put its hat in the combination in hopes he’d follow in his father’s footsteps. 

But as an alternative, he selected the Stanford Cardinal. And as he heads into his junior season this fall, longtime Stanford coach David Shaw says the son of the NFL’s all-time leading rusher will soon be probably the greatest running back within the country. 

“Over the subsequent two years, he’ll be probably the greatest backs in America,” Shaw said during a recent PFF Twitter Space. 

Smith didn’t get off on a consistent footing 

“E.J.’s ready,” Shaw said on the Pac-12 Network. “He’s able to be the guy. He’s a whole running back. He’s got receiver skills that we saw last 12 months. He’s got return skills. This guy’s an NFL back. He’s a pass protector. So anything he can do, he can do at a high level. So that is going to be a breakout 12 months for him as well.”

“Over the subsequent two years, he’ll be probably the greatest backs in America,” Shaw said during a recent PFF Twitter Space. 

JULY 5 DEZ ON CTE Former Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant has been a distinguished analyst on the state of the sport – including its dangers – together with his well-publicized remarks on the passing of ex-Dallas running back Marion Barber making headlines.

And now Bryant is pulling back the curtain again, saying “so much” of current and former NFL players are “living with CTE.”

His remarks come following the news that his friend, the late Denver Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas, was posthumously diagnosed with Stage 2 CTE.

“DT88 my heart weak bro … it’s a variety of us living with CTE and the NFL realize it…most significantly the Athletes who’ve those symptoms are scared to talk… 1 thing about me ain’t living no false life…my love and support for athletes are on a much deeper level than most…” Bryant wrote on Instagram.

JULY 1 AUTOPSY REPORT Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson was found dead last month consequently of the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine, in response to an autopsy report. 

A spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed the explanation for death to The Baltimore Sun. The agency said the death had been ruled an accident.

Ferguson was 26.

JUNE 30 ‘TRIPLE D’s’? ‘Triple D’s? The Cowboys will soon be at training camp handing out the valued team media guides … and we’ve got our “Cover Guys” – Tank Lawrence, Trevon Diggs, and Micah Parsons.

As Michael Gehlken notes, that is the primary time Dallas has done this with defensive players since 1978. And as we discussed on our Fish Report here (CODE WORD “NOVA”), possibly the trio merits a nickname. “The Triplets”? Kinda.

“Triple-D’s”? Higher.


The NFL announced the dates for all 32 NFL teams on Thursday, with the Cowboys set to travel on July 25 after which official “report” to their camp in Oxnard, California on July 26.

JUNE 23 MORE MANNING:  The Texas Longhorns have earned the most important recruiting win in the trendy era of faculty football, with Isidore Newman (Recent Orleans, LA) and No. 1 overall recruit Arch Manning committing on Thursday.

After an exhaustive and highly publicized recruiting battle, Manning selected the Longhorns over the likes of Alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Georgia, Florida and Clemson.

Considering his SEC roots, Manning’s commitment may come as a surprise on the surface.

Nonetheless, due to his relationship with Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian and quarterbacks coach AJ Milwee, it was all but a formality, as Manning selected this system that was best for him and his future.

Arch is after all the nephew of two all-time NFL QB stars in Peyton and Eli Manning.

Get more on one in every of the most important stories in football at SI’s LonghornsCountry.com.

JUNE 22: SIRAGUSA DEAD AT 55 Retired former Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts standout defensive tackle Tony Siragusa died in his sleep at age 55, it was announced.

The 6-4, 340-pound Siragusa played 12 NFL seasons before utilizing his playful personality as a sideline reporter for FOX Sports, often teaming with Cowboys ex Daryl Johnston – resulting in fun exchanges between “Goose” and “Moose.”

Former Ravens teammate Brad Jackson tells Pro Football Network: ‘He was the leader, he was our captain. He meant all the things to everyone. It’s a tragic day.”

JUNE 19: CHANGE IS BAD The Philadelphia Eagles unveiled a latest wordmark for his or her logo, and it has not gone over well…

“THIS IS TERRIBLE! The company minimalist logo trend has been ongoing for too long and now it’s infected my team. No character, no personality, just ugly straight lines since it’s mOdErN. No person asked for this. Whichever marketing schmuck thought this was good, I hope you burn,” said an Eagles fan on social media.

In Dallas, after all we do not ”hope anybody burns.” But we do recognize that the Cowboys central logo – The Star – goes unchanged … a part of the explanation it’s one of the iconic marks not only in sports, but anywhere.

JUNE 15: DIFFERENT DAY Late on Tuesday night, the Cowboys decided to skip practice during Wednesday minicamp.

But not skipping work. Just conventional practice.

Said coach Mike McCarthy before the Tuesday session regarding the week’s plan: “I’ll be honest with you. Once I walk off here today, I’ll have a greater idea of what we’re going to particularly Thursday. So, I would like to get through the install phase. We didn’t have the very best of weeks last week, which is normal. It’s not negative. I just think young players, veteran guys that we were resting, the several mixtures. That is — six, seven, eight installs is at all times a tricky stretch to your rookies.”

So … a break. But still “bonding.”

McCarthy and team leader Dak Prescott talk often about bonding and brotherhood, and what McCarthy is doing here feeds into that.

A part of it’s “being smart” with veterans who’ve nagging physical issues. And a part of it’s the “tough stretch” for guys intellectually.

But most of all, it is a break – bowling or swimming or a visit to the films or whatever – to bond as something greater than just teammates.

Or as “golfers.”

Our goal, McCarthy said recently, “is clearly to get these eight installs in simply to be certain that our rookies and our whole football team is completely exposed to all the things that’s going to be asked of them once we get back together in Oxnard, California. We will get that done with our walkthroughs and that form of thing, too.”

Consider that – with word that Thursday’s scheduled minicamp finale is now off – done. Dallas is completed with official workouts for five weeks, until we get to Oxnard on July 25.

JUNE 8: SCHED SET OK, you may lock ’em in.

The Dallas Cowboys will head west to Oxnard for training camp on July 25. And yes, CowboysSI.com shall be there with them. After which comes the brand new three-game preseason slate, which looks exactly like this: 

Week 1: Saturday, August 13 at Denver Broncos at 8 pm CT

Week 2: Saturday, August 20 at Los Angeles Chargers at 9 pm CT

Week 3: Friday, August 26 vs. Seattle Seahawks at 8pm CT

And yes, CowboysSI.com shall be in the home for all of that motion as well, leading as much as the NFL regular season for Dallas, which looks like … this!

JUNE 3: CONNOR AT CENTER? The Cowboys tried the experiment. It didn’t work, because although center fit Connor Williams’ body type and high intellect, that pesky long snap was … an issue.

Have the Miami Dolphins solved all of that?

“I feel it has been smooth,” said Williams, who signed as a free agent with the Dolphins this offseason. “I’ve really enjoyed it. I feel definitely on this offense and this scheme. I feel playing center brings out my strengths, they usually’ve been very patient with me and learning the position and learning the ins and outs with it as growing pains. I’ve enjoyed the transition.”

More from old friend Connor Williams and the Dolphins might be found here. … as we ponder whether the Cowboys, who’re in the hunt for a option to recuperate on the spot being held down by Tyler Biadasz, missed out on a solution (albeit a $7 mil APY one) that Miami has found.

JUNE 1 NEW MADDEN COVER For the primary time since 2000, John Madden will grace the duvet of the video game named after him.

The Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster passed away in December on the age of 85.

Madden 23 is about to come back out this August.

As a part of the announcement, EA Sports notes that it should also commit $2.5 million to 4 nonprofit organizations through the John Madden Legacy Commitment to Education: College Track, Mission Bit, StreetCode Academy and Girls Who Code. A further $2.5 million shall be given to create the EA Madden Scholarship in partnership with the United Negro College Fund, which shall be used to assist students at 12 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

“Coach Madden was a lifelong believer within the importance of education, and we’re privileged to support these amazing organizations which can be creating opportunities for the subsequent generation to pursue their dreams in his honor”, EA Sports’ EVP and GM Cam Weber said.

MAY 30 TCU STAR GLADNEY DEAD Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jeff Gladney, a native of Texas and a star at TCU, was killed in a automobile accident in Dallas early Monday morning.

The Cardinals released a press release Monday afternoon, describing Gladney’s passing as a “tremendous loss.”

“We’re devastated to learn of Jeff Gladney’s passing,” the statement read. “Our hearts exit to his family, friends and all who’re mourning this tremendous loss.”

A second occupant within the vehicle, not yet identified, was also killed. Each people were pronounced dead on the scene.

Gladney was 25.

MAY 28 SKIP FLICK Skip Bayless is planning to make a movie about himself and his relationship life. And he has a vision for who should play him.

“It could should be Kevin Costner,” Bayless said. “Only because for 17 years, Ernestine has told me, ‘you look identical to Kevin Costner.’ I’m unsure I see that, but that’s what she sees. Beauty is in the attention of the beholder.”

Over time, Costner has been featured in sports-related movies like American Flyers, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Tin Cup and Draft Day. 

But a “look-alike”? Costner, one in every of the heartthrob-handsomest stars of his generation, “looks like Skip”?

Sure. Obviously. Right?

MAY 25 KAP WORKOUT FOR RAIDERS The Las Vegas Raiders are hosting quarterback Colin Kaepernick for a workout.

Kaepernick gained praise and scrutiny for kneeling in the course of the national anthem within the 2016 NFL season, the last 12 months he played within the NFL.

Kaepernick, 34, spent the 2011-16 seasons with the Niners.

MAY 23: HASKINS REPORT: NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins was legally drunk when on the early morning of April 9 he was on foot and struck by a dump truck on I-595 in Florida and killed, in response to a toxicology report released by the office of the Broward County Medical Examiner on Monday.

In line with the report, two separate samples taken from Haskins’ body showed alcohol levels above the legal limit in Florida of .08. In line with the report, Haskins also tested positive for ketamine and norketamine, which may reportedly be used medically or recreationally.

Haskins, 24, was a first-round pick of Washington who most recently joined the Pittsburgh Steelers and was in Florida that weekend to coach with Steelers teammates.

Kalabrya Haskins, wife of the deceased, was involved within the issuing of a press release that read partly:

“On behalf of Dwayne’s wife, his family, and his memory, and on behalf of the reality, we respectfully request and pray for privacy, for patience, and for the general public to withhold any judgment during this era while the law enforcement authorities proceed to analyze and conduct their vital work.”

MAY 22 CLOWNEY SIGNS The Amid some national media speculation that Dallas might get entangled here, the Browns are keeping a difference-maker by re-signing pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney, per multiple reports.

Despite nine sacks last 12 months, Clowney – formerly a Houston No. 1 overall pick – again sat on the shelf for a time before re-upping with Cleveland, a team that believes it’s constructing a contender featuring one other Texans ex in QB Deshaun Watson.

Meanwhile, despite the lack of Randy Gregory, Dallas feels fortified at defensive end with Tank Lawrence and Dorance Armstrong plus the additions of vet Dante Fowler and rookie Sam Williams.

MAY 21: ROOKIE RELEASED The Cowboys on Friday waived rookie safety La’Kendrick Van Zandt.

Van Zandt signed with the Cowboys as a rookie free agent earlier this month after going undrafted in April. The previous TCU standout was a three-year starter in college and was an All-Big 12 honorable mention pick in 2020.

MAY 20: ROBINSON CUT The Cleveland Browns have cut cornerback Reggie Robinson, the previous Cowboys “pet cat,” after he failed his physical. Robinson was claimed off waivers by the Browns after the Texans cut ties with him.

Houston employed him for a short while after claiming him off waivers from Dallas. 

It is just not known yet if the failed physical is tied to the foot injury that limited Robinson in 2021.

MAY 18 REGGIE TO BROWNS: Reggie Robinson was a scouting-staff favorite when he first got here to the Dallas Cowboys. But assorted position changes and a foot injury ended his time here, and now the previous fourth-round pick has found one more latest home within the AFC with the Cleveland Browns.

The March release of the Cowboys’ fourth-round pick within the 2020 NFL draft did draw some scrutiny on the time.

Robinson initially signed with the Houston Texans, but he was released earlier week.

The previous Tulsa standout has a protracted frame and somw skills on special teams that hopefully work out for him with the Browns.

MAY 10 COACH SCANDRICK Orlando Scandrick, the previous Cowboys cornerback, has his first coaching gig.

Playa del Rey St. Bernard High in Southern California has hired Scandrick, who lives within the L.A. area, as its latest football coach.

This system, in response to the L.A. Times, hasn’t played games since an abbreviated four-game spring schedule in 2021, a season ruined by a former coach being involved in a federal investigation.

Scandrick played for a decade in Dallas and was energetic for 13 NFL seasons.

MAY 9 GIANTS CUT CB JAMES BRADBERRY The Recent York Giants have officially released cornerback James Bradberry.

Bradberry, who turns 29 this offseason, spent the past two seasons with the NFC East rival and made the Pro Bowl in 2020.

By cutting Bradberry, the Giants saved over $10 million and the seven-year vet shall be on the lookout for a latest home this offseason.

The Cowboys have Trevon Diggs and Anthony Brown because the starting cornerbacks. However the team could possibly resolve to maneuver on from Kelvin Joseph within the offseason after his legal troubles and wish a alternative.

MAY 5 MAGIC JOHNSON TO NFL? NBA legend Magic Johnson is entering the huge field of big-name candidates in bidding for the ownership of the Denver Broncos, in response to Sportico, joining the bid group being led by Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Josh Harris.

Also working toward owning the Broncos are groups involving people like John Elway, Peyton Manning and Walmart’s Rob Walton.

MAY 4 ALARCON IN For a 3rd straight season, the Cowboys are getting a roster exemption for offensive lineman Isaac Alarcon.

Alarcon is an element of the NFL’s International Pathway Program, designed to present prospects from other countries a likelihood to play within the league. And, frankly, a likelihood to create buzz about NFL football in other countries.

Alarcon is 6-7 and 320 and he’s just 23. However the Monterrey, Nueno Leon, Mexico product is just not considered a prospect. He won’t count toward the 90-man roster this offseason, but will likely return to the practice squad, due partly to the actual fact the Cowboys get an exemption there as well.

MAY 3 COWBOYS SPRING The Cowboys’ nine latest draft picks, their 20 UDFAs, and shortly, the remaining of the fellas, are ready to indicate as much as work.

The Cowboys 2022 rookie minicamp is scheduled to happen May 13 through 15. There generally is a “rookie football development program” after that, but much more key: OTAs.

The Cowboys OTAs- will happen May 24-25, June 1-2, June 6-7 and June 9-10. Then comes mandatory minicamp for veterans, June 14-16 … and by late July, we’ll be in Oxnard for training camp.

MAY 2 HONEY GOES HOME Just days after the NFL Draft, it was revealed that the Recent Orleans Saints are expected to sign safety Tyrann Mathieu in the approaching days.

Mathieu, a Recent Orleans native, spent the last three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and was a part of the Super Bowl LV championship team.

Now, he’s set to hitch the Atlanta Falcons’ biggest rival and face them twice per 12 months.
