NFL To Relax On “Brice Butler” Rule That Hurt The Cowboys In The Playoffs

NFL To Relax On “Brice Butler” Rule That Hurt The Cowboys In The Playoffs

The NFL once again recognizes flaws in the system and will make changes to fix it.

This created a lot of controversy an ultimately led to the NFL changing it’s language to help clarify what constitutes a catch. They attempted to explain the definition of a “runner” with the following: A...

New Cowboys CB Nolan Carroll on not having to cover Dez Bryant anymore: 'Let someone else have a headache'

As a cornerback, one of the benefits of joining the Cowboys after being on one of their NFC East rivals is not having to cover wideout Dez Bryant twice a year anymore.And that's just what new Cowboys cornerback Nolan Carroll, who came over from the Philadelphia Eagles, talked about on SiriusXM NFL Radio's show with Zig Fracassi & Geoff Schwartz."Now I'm on the other side of that. He's my teammate now, so let someone else have a headache during the games covering him. I just have to do it in practice now," Carroll said Sunday.While covering Bryant is a tough assignment, Carroll admitted that...

WR additions for Giants and Eagles not good news for Cowboys; exiting FA Dallas will miss most

WR additions for Giants and Eagles not good news for Cowboys; exiting FA Dallas will miss most

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered questions about the team during a live chat Friday. Who do you think has the worst contract on the Cowboys right now (aside from Romo)? Jon Machota: Their highest-paid players are Dez Bryant, Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, Tyrone Crawford, Jason Witten and Sean Lee. Of that group, Crawford has the most to prove. He's battled shoulder injuries the last two seasons and he's been moved around a lot from DE to DT. If he can stay healthy and they can settle on one position, Crawford could be a big boost...

Cowboys Free Agent Rumor: Source Says Dallas Has Interest In Kenny Britt

Cowboys Free Agent Rumor: Source Says Dallas Has Interest In Kenny Britt

The veteran receiver would be a nice get for Dallas if they could afford him. According to an article posted by Pro Football Talk, a source claims the Dallas Cowboys have an interest in veteran wide receiver Kenny Britt. On some levels this move makes sense. The Cowboys have a couple of receivers who are free agents, one whom is a starter in Terrance Williams. Britt fits the mold of a big receiver that Dallas likes and he’s not much older than Dez Bryant. He’s been productive in his career and could flourish in an offense as strong as the Cowboys. If the Cowboys lose Terrance Williams,...

OU's Westbrook, Baylor's Cannon could be draft options if Cowboys lose WR Terrance Williams to free agency

There are several positions ahead of wide receiver on the Cowboys' wish list, but if Terrance Williams departs in free agency, his replacement could be found in the draft.Clemson's Mike Williams, this class' top receiver, said he had a meeting scheduled with the Cowboys on Friday night."They got Dez Bryant," Williams said of potentially playing for the Cowboys. "Another good receiver, you could be on the other side of him. That would be good."Williams will probably be gone by the time Dallas is on the clock at No. 28. Oklahoma's Dede Westbrook and Baylor's KD Cannon are more realistic...
