IRVING, Texas -- Part 1 of the Dallas Cowboys' Twitter mailbag is ready. In it we discuss: The win streak The release of Michael Sam The 2013 draft class Trading for a pass-rusher Resting DeMarco Murray Away we go:

Big 12's top recruiting visits

It’s a relatively slow week in the Big 12, but “slow” doesn’t mean “nonexistent” when it comes to big conference matchups. TCU, Kansas State and Oklahoma State all host major games, and all three games will have potential commits in attendance. Check out some of the names and where they will be where this weekend: Texas Tech at TCU The Horned Frogs may be the hottest team in the Big 12, and they have a chance to impress a couple of top-ranked recruits who will be on campus this weekend.

Position Breakdown: Catcher

We conclude our daily series on breaking down the Texas Rangers position by position with a look at the catchers. Catchers: Robinson Chirinos and Tomas Telis Most productive: Chirinos Least productive: J.P. Arencibia Stat of Note: Geovany Soto, the projected No. 1 catcher in 2014, played 10 games. Outlook: Before you get excited about Jorge Alfaro, one of the top minor-league prospects in the system, he won't be playing in Arlington in 2015.

Cowboys have a good problem at LB

IRVING, Texas -- For the first time in a long time the Dallas Cowboys have the kind of dilemma coaches like to have. With the return of Bruce Carter, who missed the last three games with a quadriceps strain, the Cowboys will have their full complement of linebackers for the first time since Week 4, which creates something of an issue in the nickel defense. When Carter, Justin Durant and Rolando McClain have been healthy, Carter and Durant have been the nickel linebackers.

Redskins vs. Cowboys preview

For the 16th time on “Monday Night Football,” the Dallas Cowboys will meet the Washington Redskins. Only the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos (17) have met on "Monday Night Football" more. The Cowboys come in with a six-game winning streak, their longest since 2007, and the Redskins halted a four-game losing streak last week. Just looking at the records -- Cowboys 6-1 and Redskins 2-5 -- this should be an easy win for Dallas. But that is not the case in this series.
