49ers notes: Guard Alex Boone says he’ll be ready for Sunday’s opener against Cowboys

Perfect fit: America's Team and Michael Sam

IRVING, Texas -- If there were ever a team built to add Michael Sam, the NFL's first openly gay player, it's the Dallas Cowboys. Sam, expected to join the practice squad if he passes a physical Wednesday, will fit right in. Just like Deion Sanders did. And Bill Parcells did. And Terrell Owens did. Hey, this is America's Team, the NFL's most polarizing franchise. No other franchise is even close. That's why they're still a regular part of the league's prime-time television package even though a generation has grown up in north Texas with no clue the Cowboys used to rule the NFL.

Michael Sam makes football sense for Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- Signing Michael Sam to the practice squad is a move that makes perfect football sense for the Dallas Cowboys. Forget about the fact that Sam is seeking to become the first openly gay NFL player. If the Cowboys aren't mature enough to handle that, they're doomed anyway. So what if Sam gets more attention than any other practice-squad player? If anything, it's a bonus for owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who loves when the Cowboys are in the news and jerseys are being sold.

Will Cowboys' defensive state lead to Sam?

IRVING, Texas -- In search of pass-rushing help, the Dallas Cowboys will bring Michael Sam in for a physical on Wednesday and potentially add him to the practice squad. Forget the off-the-field attention that would accompany Sam should he join the Cowboys, how does he fit on the field? Sam was not on the Cowboys’ draft board in May. At the time, they did not believe he would be a good fit in Rod Marinelli’s scheme. Marinelli constantly stresses speed all over the defense and Sam timed poorly leading up to the draft despite being the Southeastern Conference’s Player of the Year last...

Lawrence on short-term IR; Dallas signs DL

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys placed rookie defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence on the short-term injured reserve list, meaning he will miss the first eight games of the season. The Cowboys signed defensive lineman Jack Crawford, who was cut last week by the Oakland Raiders, to take Lawrence’s place on the roster. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Crawford, who played in 19 games and had 18 tackles for the Raiders over the last two seasons, is primarily a defensive end but has the versatility to also play tackle.
