Cowboys' Justin Durant: Starts at middle linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant started at inside linebacker in Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Signed in mid-July after considering retirement during the offseason, Durant worked behind Anthony Hitchens through the first two weeks of the preseason. However, the 30-year-old Durant still has a shot to enter Week 1 as a starter, potentially even working in a three-down role. It's still a long shot, but there is some chance Durant could be a serviceable IDP option for the first time since early in the 2014 season.

Cowboys' Justin Durant: Returning to Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Durant has signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys.

Durant's return to Dallas comes after fellow linebacker Rolando McClain was recently suspended for 10 games. The nine-year veteran played for the Cowboys in 2013 and 2014, before finishing with 82 tackles (57 solo) in 13 games for the Falcons last season. Given Sean Lee's presence at Durant's usual weakside linebacker spot, it's unclear where the 30-year-old will line up this year, but he'll certainly help the Cowboys' depth while McClain is out.

Justin Durant: In talks with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant is engaged in contract talks with the Cowboys, NFL.com reports.

Durant played last season in Atlanta, but made 16 appearances for the Cowboys over the preceding two seasons. Upon his release from the Falcons in February, and after Dallas linebacker Rolando McClain was recently suspended for 10 games, Durant potentially returning to the Cowboys certainly makes sense for both parties. Now 30 years old, Durant finished with 82 tackles (57 solo) and forced one fumble in 13 games played during the 2015 season.

Justin Durant: Released Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Durant was released by the Falcons on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Durant and William Moore were both casualties on the first date in which teams could make such moves, and neither was a surprise due to the injury-laden seasons each has cobbled together. In particular, Durant missed three games in 2015 with elbow and calf issues, which contained him to 82 tackles (57 solo) and one forced fumble. Considering his age (30) heading into the offseason, though, the outside linebacker shouldn't have a problem drumming up interest on the free-agent market.

Falcons' Justin Durant: Racks up 82 tackles on the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Durant finished the season with 82 tackles and a forced fumble in 13 games with the Atlanta Falcons in 2015.

Durant had a solid season, and he played 62.5 percent of the total defensive snaps, although that doesn't account for the three games he missed, so he was a regular presence on the defensive side of the ball. Only Paul Worrilow had more tackles for the Falcons this season. Durant enters the 2016 season in the final year of his contract.
