Giants' roster preview: CB Leon McFadden

Cornerback depth is an issue for the Giants. Can McFadden provide some. In some ways you can can look at New York Giants cornerback Leon McFadden and see just another mistakes by an inept Cleveland Browns organization. McFadden, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound cornerback, was a third-round pick by Cleveland in 2013. Select a player in the third round and you are hoping to get one who will contribute as a rookie and become a long-term part of your roster. Instead, the Browns cut McFadden after one season. McFadden has been an NFL vagabond since. He has been with the New York Jets, played seven games...

What Will Be Darius Jackson's Job For The Cowboys?

Darius Jackson could end up making the final 53-man roster after all. Unfortunately, injuries are apart of the game of football. Injuries can happen anywhere, but most of the time we see them occur on the gridiron. Players continuously deal with fractured bones, pulled muscles, head injuries, and leg injuries among others. Those injuries do not usually occur at a player's home. The injury to Darren McFadden is comical in one sense, breaking an elbow trying to save an iPhone, but potentially serious in others. Coming off one of the best years in his career, McFadden was able to put together...

Dallas Cowboys 2016 Minicamp: Darren McFadden’s Broken Elbow Has Darius Jackson’s Stock On The Rise

The sixth-round rookie is now one of only three healthy running backs on the Cowboys’ roster. He has a chance to make an early claim on a spot on the 53 for this fall. Normally, NFL players do not make the roster during OTAs and minicamp. They can lose out on a spot due to injury, as we saw happen a couple of years ago when Sean Lee went on IR the first day of the voluntary practices. While injuries can drop a player’s chances, they do not often make a downroster player a near-lock to make the squad. But the bizarre broken elbow suffered by Darren McFadden may have made just that out of...

49ers opponents: Darren McFadden broke elbow in home accident

The Dallas Cowboys drafted running back Ezekiel Elliott in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and it looks like he'll be getting a whole lot of work fairly quickly. In news that is not exactly stunning, Darren McFadden has hurt himself. McFadden suffered a broken elbow at home, and had surgery that will keep him out “a couple months.” That would put his return likely around the end of training camp, but the timetable is not entirely firm at this point. The San Francisco 49ers host the Cowboys in Week 4, on October 2. It is highly likely McFadden will be playing by then, but his...

Darren McFadden Broken Elbow, Out A Couple Of Months After Surgery, Benson Mayowa Needs Knee Scope

When Jason Garrett met the press before today's minicamp practice, it wasn't expected to be that much of a news-making event. Turns out it was. One nugget the Cowboys' coach dropped on the press was that running back Darren McFadden injured his elbow in an accident at his home and will miss at least a couple of months. Although he practiced with it last week, he needed surgery and will hand the starting duties for a while over to Ezekiel Elliott. Darren McFadden had surgery on the injury he suffered to his elbow two weeks ago. Garrett expects him to be out for "a couple months." — David...

Why The Dallas Cowboys Should Not Trade Darren McFadden

The Cowboys would be wise to hold onto their most veteran runner Darren McFadden turns 29 years old this August. As a regular human he is just entering the prime years in his life, as a pro football player he is nearing the end. That is no reason for the Dallas Cowboys to let go of the team's leading rusher of 2015 however. Coming off the second 1,000 yard season of his career, McFadden has generated interest on the trade market. But the Cowboys should forego the trade talk and keep McFadden around for the final year of his contract. Back in May, Dallas used the fourth-overall pick on...

No Deal: The Cowboys Are Holding On To Darren McFadden And Ron Leary For Good Reasons

A lot of people think it would be a good idea to trade McFadden and Leary for whatever the team can get. They are wrong. OTAs have wound down for the Dallas Cowboys, and we now have only the minicamp to look forward to before the long, dry spell leading up to training camp. With no real contract issues facing the team, there will not be a lot of new things to discuss. That means whatever topics are already around are going to be cussed and discussed to death. It is very likely that one of the top points of contention for Dallas fans is the idea of trading a couple of veterans, Darren...

The Case For And Against Trading Darren McFadden

If Darren McFadden is indeed the odd man out, the Dallas Cowboys could explore trade options. What could the Cowboys get in return for the veteran? Last year proved that any runner with some talent and health could have success behind the Dallas Cowboys offensive line. Darren McFadden rushed for just under 1,100 yards despite taken over the starting position seven weeks into the season. Coming from an injury-riddled tenure with the Oakland Raiders, McFadden came into his own in Dallas even though he wasn't entirely suited for the scheme the Cowboys wanted to run. Because of McFadden's...
