Rico Gathers resolves his marijuana case, what does his Cowboys future hold?

Yes, there was this that post case against Rico Gathers. Remember back right before the Cowboys were deciding their 53-man roster heading into the 2018 season? News broke that Rico Gathers had been arrested for marijuana possession. At the time, given his tenuous hold on a roster spot, it was assumed by many that the Cowboys would take that opportunity to dump Gathers. It didn’t happen. The Cowboys held on to him as they tried to use a tight-end-by-committee to replace the departed Jason Witten. Just today, Gathers resolved his case related to that arrest.

Film Room: Witten’s return could mean more critical connections between him and Prescott

While Jason Witten won’t spend as much time on the field, we could see more great plays like we did in seasons past. In this chapter of Film Room, we’re diving into the archives of tight end Jason Witten. The Cowboys offense came into 2018 without two of its long-time fixtures in wide receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten. They managed to replace Bryant by trading for Amari Cooper midseason, but the loss of Witten was still felt. Despite his age, Jason Witten coming out of retirement could be huge for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense. This is particularly true with wide...

Earl Thomas is just the latest game-changer deemed too rich for the richest team in football

Earl Thomas is just the latest game-changer deemed too rich for the richest team in football

Safety Earl Thomas' long journey out of Seattle ended Wednesday when he landed in Baltimore. That's OK, Cowboys fans, Sean Lee is locked up for another year.Wide receiver Cole Beasley left Tuesday for the relative riches of Buffalo, leaving someone else to catch Dak Prescott's third-down chains-moving throws. That's fine, Jason Witten is on his way down from the TV booth as we speak.The Cowboys have a bizarre approach to free agency, a prudence bordering on penuriousness that prevents them from going after game-changing players.

As free agency rolls along, let’s revisit the Cowboys roster priorities

All eyes are on Earl Thomas and DeMarcus Lawrence, but those are just two questions Dallas still has to answer. As NFL free agency gets really underway and deals have been announced during the legal tampering period, the Dallas Cowboys are, as usual, quiet. The only big developments have been the surprise return of Jason Witten, the loss of Cole Beasley to the Buffalo Bills, and a re-negotiated contract for Sean Lee that freed up some cap space. Meanwhile, the team remains in a stand-off with DeMarcus Lawrence, who is not planning on signing his franchise tag, and the pursuit of the great...

After Jason Witten’s departure from ESPN, speculation again turns to Peyton Manning

Jason Witten's decision to return to the Dallas Cowboys after one season in ESPN's "Monday Night Football" booth led to all sorts of speculation about what the network plans to do with its announcing team now that Witten no longer will be part of it. Would the network stand pat with Witten's two former broadcast partners and simply park Booger McFarland alongside Joe Tessitore in the booth after he spent last season traversing the sideline in a cart? Would it decide that another voice was needed to replace Witten?
