Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Could be trade bait later on
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McFadden could become a trade candidate by the end of the summer, ESPN.com reports.

The Cowboys probably wouldn't be comfortable trading McFadden at the moment, as receiving specialist Lance Dunbar (knee) is no lock to be ready for Week 1 and Alfred Morris isn't a real option for passing downs. However, the Cowboys might ultimately be comfortable with a backfield comprised of Ezekiel Elliott, Morris and Dunbar if the latter is indeed available by the beginning of the season. It's unclear if a trade would help or hurt McFadden's fantasy stock, as the top backup job in Dallas could make him a valuable handcuff for Elliott owners. All of this, of course, assumes that Elliott will put together a competent camp and claim the lead role, as expected. If the No. 4 overall selection appears surprisingly out of his element, McFadden won't be going anywhere.

Cowboys' Dez Bryant: X-ray on upcoming schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant will have an X-ray in the next few weeks to determine if he'll receive full clearance to resume football activities, the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Cowboys have relayed that Bryant is expected to be cleared for offseason practices in early June, but an X-ray appears to be the linchpin for the final decision. With OTAs taking place until their three-day mandatory minicamp commences on June 14, the organization will wait with bated breath for the news that Tony Romo's (back) No. 1 target is officially back in the fold.

Cowboys' Ronald Leary: No-show to begin OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Leary did not show up for Tuesday's voluntary OTAs and is seeking a trade, the Dallas Morning News reports.

He lost his job as the starting left guard to La'el Collins after just four games into the 2015 season, but Leary still signed his RFA tender this offseason in the hopes that the Cowboys could be able to trade him at the draft. When no deal materialized, Leary elected to sit out OTAs to put more pressure on the front office. Chances are he winds up with another club eventually, but the Cowboys are in no rush to move Leary and would be happy to have him return for one more year to provide depth for their juggernaut offensive line.

Cowboys' Terrance Williams: Not worried about contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams intends to let his play speak for itself as he enters the final year of his rookie contract this season, ESPN.com reports.

Williams has developed into a good second-choice wideout opposite Dez Bryant since joining the Cowboys as a third-round pick in 2013. In fact, with Bryant out for much of last season, Williams went on to post career-highs in catches (52) and yards (840), scoring three times as well. That being said, given the Cowboys' bevy of highly-paid offensive players, it remains to be seen whether Williams is regarded as a future investment as well. Regardless, the 26-year-old plans to prove his worth on the field this season, his last with the Cowboys under his current contract.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Signs rookie contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott, the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, signed a four-year, $24.9 million contract with the Cowboys on Wednesday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

As is the case for all first-round selections, Elliott's contract includes a fifth-year team option. He's expected to step right in as the lead back behind an elite offensive line, potentially handling a heavy three-down workload from the get-go. Given his combination of talent and ideal team context, Elliott may be an immediate fantasy star. Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar (knee) could also get some work in the Dallas backfield.
