  • Cowboys' Malik Jefferson: Heading to Dallas

    Jefferson signed a contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

    Jefferson joined Dallas after the team waived running back JaQuan Hardy in a corresponding move Thursday. The 2018 third-round pick out of Texas played 34 games over the first three years of his career, but he appeared in just one game with Indianapolis during the 2021 season. Jefferson likely will compete for a depth linebacker/special teams role with Dallas ahead of Week 1.
