Cowboys quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Keith Smith, linebacker James Anderson, tackle Doug Free, tackle Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were ruled inactive for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.
Barry Church
News
Lions wide receiver Golden Tate responded Thursday to comments from Cowboys safety Barry Church, who vowed revenge for a blindside hit Tate had on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee in 2012 when Tate played for Seattle.

"Man, I don't know this guy," Tate said Thursday, per ESPN. "I just now heard of him yesterday from this incident. He's trying to get on the scene, I guess. We'll see."

Church said Wednesday that Tate's hit "was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen." The hit led to a $21,000 fine for Tate, who hit Lee in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet.

"We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and Sean," Church said. "He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just to give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'

"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules, within the rules."

James Hanna
News
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee, concussion), defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion), linebacker Bruce Carter (knee), tight James Hanna (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), guard Zack Martin (ankle), running back DeMarco Murray (hand) and quarterback Tony Romo (back) were cleared to play for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.

Hitchens, McClain and Mincey were listed as questionable, while the remaining players were all considered probable.

Darren McFadden
News
With the Cowboys just beginning their organized team activities this week, running back Darren McFadden said he just wants to concentrate on becoming familiar with the team, reports the team's official website.

"For me, I'm just going out there grinding," he said. "However the coaches put me out there – whether it's first team or second team. When it comes time for them to make a decision, it's totally up to them. I'm just trying to get that playbook down and take advantage of this opportunity."

McFadden is competing with Joseph Randle to be the first-team running back, and he said he just wants to work hard and not worry about how many repetitions he's receiving with the first team.

"Once you've been in a place so long like Oakland, you can get set in your ways," McFadden said Wednesday, after his second OTA practice with the Cowboys. "Coming out here and being around guys that work so hard, it just brings out the best in you. It's something I look forward to."

Jack Crawford
News
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is probable heading into Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Romo was listed with a back injury, but was able to practice in full on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

The team did not list any players as questionable, though Jeff Heath was listed as doubtful.

Gavin Escobar
News
A trio of Cowboys receivers pitched in with minor contributions in a Week 10 victory over Jacksonville. Tight end Gavin Escobar caught one pass for 14 yards, wideout Cole Beasley snagged another for 11 yards and running back Lance Dunbar caught two for seven yards.

Also working his way into the score sheet was backup quarterback Brandon Weeden, who completed his only pass for eight yards.

Dallas is now on its bye week.

Lucky Whitehead
News
Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory returned to the practice field on Saturday, after leaving Friday's OTA practice early.

Third-round tackle Chaz Green and undrafted wide receiver Lucky Whitehead also returned to the field after they couldn't complete Friday's practice.  

Travis Frederick
News
Cowboys center Travis Frederick is hoping to make things easier for quarterback Tony Romo this season, reports ESPN.

Part of Romo's responsibility is setting the protections with calling out the middle linebacker. The offensive line follows the assignment. If Frederick can take that responsibility away from Romo, then Romo can worry more about the coverage. 

"I'm going to try and do as much as I can to take as much as I can off Tony that he was doing before for the offensive line," Frederick said. 'Not necessarily because I was a rookie or this or that, but because, if I can see it better, that's going to take one thing off his plate and that's going to help the team as a whole."

Tyron Smith
News
Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith restructured his contract Monday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The move created an additional $8.16 million in salary cap space for the Cowboys. The team converted $10.2 million of his $11.039 million base salary in 2015 into a signing bonus.

The 24-year-old left tackle is entering his fifth season with the Cowboys after being selected in the first round of the 2011 draft. He is a two-time Pro Bowler and was named First-team All-Pro in 2014. 

Tyler Clutts

Gachkar has spent the previous four seasons with the Chargers. He was selected by San Diego in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL draft. With the Chargers, Gachkar totaled 120 tackles and one forced fumble. 

His agent David Canter appeared to confirm the news by tweeting, "How bout Dem Cowboys!!!" while tagging Gachkar in the post. 

Cameron Lawrence
News
The Cowboys re-signed two of their defensive players on Friday. 

The team re-signed linebacker Cameron Lawrence , who was an exclusive-rights free agent. Lawrence joined the Cowboys practice squad after going undrafted in 2013.

Nick Hayden
News
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett made it a point of emphasis to mention to reporters at the NFL Meetings that re-signing defensive lineman Nick Hayden was important, reports the Dallas Morning News.

“Well, we’re always trying to get better and we have to get better,’’ Garrett said. “We have to bring some impact players into our defense. But Nick has been such a good player for us as a leader of that defensive line and he’s a really productive player. There’s a lot of the dirty work but he’s one of those guys who makes a lot of hits on the ball, is around the football a lot and simply makes a lot of plays.

"That was an important signing for us.’’

Hayden has started all 16 games with the Cowboys for two consecutive seasons. Over his seven-year career, he has 135 total tackles, two sacks, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Jeremy Mincey
News
The Cowboys can experiment with their defensive line because they have such an abundance of talent.

On Wednesday, the team tweaked defensive end Jeremy Mincey's role when they moved him in to play defensive tackle, per The Dallas Morning News.

The Cowboys added Greg Hardy and drafted Randy Gregory to bolster the defensive line this offseason. With the newly-added depth, the team is trying out new looks to determine what works best.

“We were working a bunch of different combinations [Wednesday], which was great,” Mincey said. “Randy Gregory is coming along. Really solid pass rusher. They had me and Mr. Kraken (Hardy) here working together. You know what I mean? A lot of good, man. We’ve got a lot of depth, a lot of players you can trust. I think we’ll make some impactful plays for the Cowboys.”

Mincey led the team with six sacks last year.

Wilson was a tackling machine last year at the University of Minnesota, racking up 119, including 10.5 for losses and four sacks. He has worked in the first-team nickel package in practice both in the middle and on the weakside.

R.J. Dill
News
The Cowboys have signed offensive linemen R.J. Dill and Ryan Miller to reserve/future contracts, the team announced Thursday.

Miller didn't play in a regular-season game in 2014 but has appeared in eight games with the Browns. Dill was unable to make the Rams' final roster during the 2014 preseason.

Dez Bryant
News
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant took a huge risk by participating in a limited portion of his team's organized team activities on Thursday, because he has yet to sign his franchise-tag tender, sources told Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

Bryant, who wants a long-term deal, has made a number of appearances at the Cowboys' offseason conditioning program but Thursday was the first day he participated in meaningful on-field work.

Bryant and the Cowboys need to work out a long-term deal before July 15 or he would be forced to play the season under the franchise tag, which would pay him $12.8 million.

In 16 games last year, Bryant caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Joseph Randle
News
With last season's leading rusher no longer on the team, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle said he can replace the 1,845 rushing yards DeMarco Murray produced last season, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"He had a good year last year, and I got to sit back and watch a lot," Randle said, "and I felt like there was a lot of meat left on the bone."

Randle did get first-team reps during Wednesday's OTA session and he said he's ready to handle a heavy workload this season.

"I'm going to try to go out there and grind as hard as I can and see which role I end up in," Randle said. "If they ask me to do that, I'm ready for it. And if they believe in me, I believe in myself, that’s for sure."

Randle has been arrested twice in the last year, but he said he's learned from his mistakes.

"Everything you go through in life you learn from it and I learned from it and I've moved past it. I've grown up," Randle said. "I've made some young and silly mistakes, but I'm moving forward."

Randy Gregory
News
Defensive end Randy Gregory, whom many experts thought would be picked in the first round of the NFL Draft before questions began to arise about personal issues, signed his contract Wednesday with the Cowboys, who selected him in the second round. 

The amount and length of the contract have yet to be disclosed, but Gregory figures to make an immediate impact with the Cowboys if he can keep his personal life on track. He has requested that Dallas make a detail available to ensure he does not get into any trouble off the field. 

Ben Gardner
News
The Cowboys got down to the 75-man roster limit Tuesday. They waived receiver Chris Boyd, punter Tom Hornsey, long snapper Casey Kreiter, defensive end Adewale Ojomo and guard Wayne Tribue, and released quarterback Caleb Hanie.

Orlando Scandrick
News
The Cowboys and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have a agreed to a new contract extension, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. It's a one-year, $9.5 million extension worth $20 million in total for Scandrick.

Scandrick recently reported to team workouts after a brief holdout that caused him to forfeit $500,000 of his base salary. The 28-year-old is expected to sign new his deal on Friday.

Arguably the Cowboys' best cornerback, Scandrick was scheduled to make $1.5 million this season and still had four years left on his current deal.

Scandrick recorded 55 tackles with two interceptions in 14 games last season.

La'el Collins
News
Cowboys rookie offensive lineman La'el Collins started offseason team activities on Wednesday taking reps at right tackle, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Collins, who was signed as an undrafted free agent, could also see time at left guard. But the rookie is taking his first reps with the team at right tackle with Darrion Weems while Doug Free recovers from ankle surgery.

"We think he has the physical ability to play a couple of different spots," coach Jason Garrett said. "He was a tackle for most of his career in college but did play guard. We see him as a guy who can maybe do both of those things as he goes.

"The big thing for him is to try to get him acclimated as quickly as we can. So right now he's going to play right tackle for us. He and Darrion Weems are competing at that spot in Doug Free's absence and we'll just see how that unfolds."

Morris Claiborne
News
The Cowboys announced they will not pick up the fifth-year option on cornerback Morris Claiborne, making him a free agent after this season, per ProFootballTalk.com. 

Claiborne is coming off a rough season in which he struggled to recover from a torn patellar tendon, as he only appeared in four games. He also missed six games last year because of a hamstring issue. 

If the Cowboys had picked up the option, they would have been on the hook for more than $11 million in 2016.

Davon Coleman
News
Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy got into an altercation with teammate Davon Coleman during a voluntary offseason workout, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports

Hardy reportedly questioned Coleman's work ethic during a conditioning drill, which led Coleman to call Hardy a "woman beater."

Hardy was accused of domestic abuse and was found guilty by a North Carolina judge. On the subsequent appeal, prosecutors dropped charges against Hardy and the case was never presented in front of a jury. 

Hardy has been suspended by the NFL for 10 games due to what transpired in that case. According to FOX Sports, the confrontation between Hardy and Coleman remained verbal

Darrion Weems
News
Cowboys rookie offensive lineman La'el Collins started offseason team activities on Wednesday taking reps at right tackle, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Collins, who was signed as an undrafted free agent, could also see time at left guard. But the rookie is taking his first reps with the team at right tackle with Darrion Weems while Doug Free recovers from ankle surgery.

"We think he has the physical ability to play a couple of different spots," coach Jason Garrett said. "He was a tackle for most of his career in college but did play guard. We see him as a guy who can maybe do both of those things as he goes.

"The big thing for him is to try to get him acclimated as quickly as we can. So right now he's going to play right tackle for us. He and Darrion Weems are competing at that spot in Doug Free's absence and we'll just see how that unfolds." 

Ryan Russell
News
Former Purdue defensive end Ryan Russell had a team in mind during this weekend's NFL draft. 

Having grown up in Carrolton, Texas, Russell held out hope that the Cowboys would select him. His wish became a reality when the Cowboys drafted him in the fifth round on Saturday. 

"Every time the Cowboys (came up), I was like, 'Please, call me,' and my phone finally rang," Russell said, via ESPN.com

Though Russell had a home state connection with the Cowboys, the organization was brutally honest with him through the pre-draft process. In meetings, they explained what he did well and what he needs to improve on at the next levl. 

"There were times where my get-offs weren't quite the same or my hand placement and my techniques get sloppy," Russell said. "So just cleaning those things up and playing one play at a time consistently and at a high level. Those are the things that I needed to work on."

Corey White
News
Cornerback Corey White, after being waived by the Saints, has been picked up off of waivers by the Cowboys, according to NOLA.com.

White is entering his fourth season in the NFL, racking up 125 total tackles, 15 passes defensed and four interceptions. The 24-year-old has played in 41 games over the last three seasons, including 19 starts at cornerback.

News
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle) and defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (illness) are active for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Lions after both players were listed as questionable to play.

Spillman (groin).

Dallas is a 6-point favorite at home against Detroit.

Brandon Weeden
News
If the Browns trade for Sam Bradford or select a quarterback near the top of the draft, it would likely mean that the team is ready to cut ties with Johnny Manziel

However, the Cowboys, who considered drafting Manziel in the first round last year, wouldn't pursue a trade for the troubled quarterback. 

ESPN's Ed Werder reported that the Cowboys aren't interested in trading for Manziel. The team will stick with Brandon Weeden as backup quarterback.

Sean Lee
News
If the Cowboys bring back linebacker Rolando McClain, then it is assumed linebacker Sean Lee will be moved to the weakside, per The Dallas Morning News. Lee missed the 2014 season due to a torn ACL.

“If it says ‘linebacker’ behind the position, I think he’s going to be okay,” Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus said of Lee. “I think that, like I said, we’ll tie all these guys together and see how they fit. And we’ll find the best position for them…. Sean’s uniqueness in his ability, like a few other guys that we’ve had, he’s able to play all positions. He can really play all positions. That’s what makes him a valuable asset to our defense. He will certainly be good once we get him there and get him going. He’s really super excited and so am I.”

Chris Jones

Devin Street
News
Cowboys rookie wideout Devin Street has run 49 pass routes on 70 snaps this season, but has been targeted just four times, reports the Dallas Morning News. Street has two catches for 16 yards. The paper said receiver Cole Beasley and running back Lance Dunbar have proven to be reliable third-down options, minimizing Street's opportunities.
Tony Romo
News
A Tony Romo ahead of the game is a rather scary thought for NFL defenses. But such is the case for the Cowboys quarterback, who for the first time in three years is healthy at this point in the offseason.

In 2013, he was recovering from the removal of cyst. Last year he was battling back from a discectomy. But he's fine now and is performing quite well.

"It's been great," Romo told ESPN. "I think just to be able to kind of have an offseason. You're always rehabbing, but at the same time, I'm kind of able to build during this offseason. It's exciting really."

It's more exciting considering he is coming off his finest year, which featured a league-best completion percentage (69.9) and passer rating (113.2) with 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.

In training camp he never practiced more than two straight days, then sat out every Wednesday during the regular season. It remains to be seen if a healthy offseason translates into even better production for the 35-year-old Romo in 2015. The team will be careful in regard to his health.

"Tony's obviously further along," Jason Garrett said. "He didn't have an offseason surgery, so he was able to get a lot more things in our offseason program up to this point. ... You want to make sure you monitor him. ... He's handled everything we've asked him to do to this point really well."

Brandon Carr
News
With Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr set to count $12.7 million against the salary cap during the 2015 season, owner Jerry Jones said the team would like to restructure Carr's contract, reports the Star-Telegram.

"That one is as it is, we're evaluating, looking to the extent that we can make contractual adjustments that would fit and help us under the cap, we want to try to do that with him," Jones said. "We value Carr and what he can mean for us this year."

Carr has refused to discuss his contract status publicly and Jones said restructuring the deal remains a priority.

"All of the contracts that we don't have closure on are a priority," Jones said. "He certainly is a player who is in our top consideration. So yeah, I'd say that's a priority. We want him on the football field."

A.J. Jenkins
News
The Cowboys signed former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins earlier this week, and it didn't take long for him to acknowledge he needs to make an impression soon, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I got to hurry up and make some plays and do something,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins was drafted with the 30th pick of the 2012 draft by the 49ers, but only plaed in three games as a rookie. In 2013, the 49ers traded him to the Chiefs where he played in every game but caught only eight passes. Last season he caught nine passes in nine games for the Chiefs before they released him in February.

Now, Jenkins is just happy that a tryout with the Cowboys resulted in the team giving him another shot.

“It was a lift off of my shoulders,” Jenkins said. “It really was because you don’t really know how it goes. There are a lot of guys who stay waiting for a long time and they don’t get a phone call. I’m blessed and humbled for the opportunity, and it being the Cowboys, an organization that’s known for a lot of things. I’m just happy to be a part of it.”

Reggie Dunn
News
The Cardinals released quarterback Ryan Lindley, offensive tackle Max Starks, linebackers Keenan Clayton, JoJo Dickson and Derrell Johnson, center Tom Draheim, receivers Reggie Dunn and Kevin Ozier, safety Orhian Johnson, defensive tackle Justin Renfrow, running back Damien Thigpen and cornerback Brandon Sermons.

Dustin Vaughan
News
Although the Cowboys are reportedly pleased with Brandon Weeden, coach Jason Garrett told reporters he's still leaving the door open to adding a veteran this offseason, per ESPN.

Weeden, 31, is entering the final year of his contract. Last season, he passed for 303 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while filling in for Romo when he was sidelined with two transverse process fractures. Dustin Vaughan, an undrafted free agent in 2014, was also active for one game last season.

"You're always trying to upgrade your football team," Garrett said. "Obviously, we feel really good about Tony. He had an outstanding year for us last year. Brandon did a really nice job in his opportunities. If you look at what he did -- he played in (four) games, (three) he came in relief for us and the one game he started we didn't play our best game on offense. But it was against a really good defensive team in Arizona. We still feel like he's a young player who needs to play more. He's really growing before our eyes.

"We like what Dustin Vaughn did in the preseason. He is a smart kid. He is really conscientious. He wants to be a good football player and works very hard at it. He's one of those guys, too, a young player and you can see him get better with every rep that he gets. He is going about it the right way. We think he's got a future."
