  • Cowboys' Aldon Smith: Conditionally reinstated by league

    The NFL conditionally reinstated Smith (suspension) on Wednesday, allowing him to take part in the Cowboys' virtual offseason program, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Due to myriad personal and legal issues, Smith hasn't taken the field since 2015, when he racked up 28 tackles (21 solo) and 3.5 sacks over nine games with the Raiders. When Smith signed a one-year deal with Dallas in April, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports relayed that the edge rusher had worked hard to maintain his sobriety, and the NFL was apparently satisfied with the progress he's made off the field. The 2011 first-round pick is now on a path to resume his career in 2020, but he'll need to remain on his best behavior in the months to come to ensure his spot on the Dallas roster.

  • Cowboys' Leighton Vander Esch: Announces return to full health

    Vander Esch (neck) said Monday he is "doing wonderful" in his recovery from neck surgery and is "ready to roll," Patrik Walker of CBSSports.com reports.

    "I'm ready to go and healthy as ever," Vander Esch said. After having undergone neck surgery mid-January to address an injury that limited him to nine games in 2019, the 24-year-old now appears ready to resume on-field drills whenever the Cowboys ultimately reconvene for offseason activities. After having stormed out of the gates with 140 tackles as a rookie, Vander Esch will no doubt secure another three-down role in Dallas' linebacker corps if he can stay fully healthy to kick off the 2020 campaign.

  • Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Could benefit from spread formation

    Elliott could be one of the bigger beneficiaries of CeeDee Lamb's addition to the offense, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    With Randall Cobb on the roster last season, the Cowboys ran plays out of '11' personnel (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) roughly two-thirds of the time, forcing defenses to put an extra defensive back on the field instead of a linebacker. Elliott averaged 5.1 yards per carry out of that formation, the fifth-highest mark in the league, and his 823 total rushing yards from 11 personnel also led the NFL. With first-round pick Lamb now stepping in for Cobb, and the more conservative Jason Garrett gone as head coach, the team will likely increase its use of 11 personnel further, allowing Elliott to face even fewer stacked fronts.
