Cowboys waived WR Deonte Thompson.

With Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, and Tavon Austin (when healthy) locked in atop their position, the Cowboys no longer had a need for Deonte Thompson. Special teams standout Noah Brown and WR Lance Lenoir will reportedly be activated and moved to the active roster prior to Sunday. Thompson, a 29-year-old journeyman, will likely find a home as depth soon.

Free agent DB Obi Melifonwu is visiting the Saints on Tuesday.

He has also met with the Cowboys and Patriots. It seems likely the second-round sophomore has a new team in the near future.
Oct 30 - 9:47 AM

Free agent DB Obi Melifonwu is visiting the Cowboys on Thursday.

A second-round pick last year, Melifonwu played just five games as a rookie due to knee and hip injuries, and that hip issue landed him on injured reserve in August. The Raiders waived him from IR on Tuesday, suggesting he is back to full health. He would be a good reclamation project for the Cowboys.

Cowboys released WR Brice Butler.

The Cowboys' most-dangerous receiver goes to make room for Amari Cooper.
Oct 22 - 5:31 PM

According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, the Cowboys are "monitoring" Kelvin Benjamin ahead of next week's trade deadline.

The Cowboys have also checked in on DeVante Parker and continue to do their "due diligence" on Amari Cooper. Dallas is in desperate need of receiving weapons and it's likely the Cowboys address that issue by adding a pass-catcher at the trade deadline. Hopefully the Cowboys can do a bit better than Benjamin, who has been a non-factor in Buffalo this year. Meanwhile Parker can't even get on the field in Miami.
Oct 21 - 12:05 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are "gathering information" on Amari Cooper ahead of next week's trade deadline.

No team is in greater need of pass-catching help than the receiver-starved Cowboys, who are currently trotting out the likes of Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup at wide receiver. Dallas has begun to do its due diligence on Cooper, who has also drawn trade interest from the Colts and Redskins. The Raiders have been adamant they won't accept anything less than a first-round pick for Cooper, which is a steep cost for a player whose career has been riddled by inconsistency. The 24-year-old also has health concerns coming off a concussion in Week 6.
Oct 21 - 10:43 AM

Jaguars declared RB Leonard Fournette, DT Eli Ankou, OT Ereck Flowers, CB D.J. Hayden, CB Tre Herndon, OL Chris Reed and DE Dawuane Smoot inactive for Week 6 against the Cowboys.

Fournette is still nursing a hamstring injury, though reports suggest he could return as soon as next week. With Corey Grant (foot) also hurt, T.J. Yeldon will carry the load Sunday at Jerry's World. DE Calais Campbell (ankle), DT Malik Jackson (back), C Brandon Linder (knee), DE Yannick Ngakoue (shoulder), OG Andrew Norwell (foot), OT Jermey Parnell (knee) and CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) are all active for Jacksonville.
Oct 14 - 3:03 PM

Free agent QB Landry Jones has worked out for the Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars and Lions.

Jones has been on the market for over a month now. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the former Steeler is expected to find a job soon. The 29-year-old isn't starting material but he's been a competent backup throughout his career.
Oct 7 - 8:45 AM

Lions declared DE Ezekiel Ansah, RB Ameer Abdullah, OL Joe Dahl, DE Kerry Hyder, WR Brandon Powell, TE Michael Roberts and CB DeShawn Shead inactive for Week 4 against the Cowboys.

This will be Ansah's third straight absence after injuring his shoulder in Week 1. LB Jarrad Davis (knee) and WR Golden Tate (hip) are both active for Sunday's game at Jerry's World.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seahawks won't budge on their asking price for FS Earl Thomas.

The Seahawks refuse to go lower than a second-rounder for Thomas, but with the trade deadline nearing, their leverage is running out. Dallas considered a trade for Thomas during the preseason but if those sides were to work out a deal, it probably would have happened last week when they played each other. Per Schefter, the Chiefs have emerged as the early frontrunner for Thomas. Kansas City's secondary has been a mess without Eric Berry (heel) and the Chiefs have an extra second-rounder they can use as trade bait. The trade deadline is October 30 at 4 PM ET.
Sep 30 - 10:56 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are hoping to re-engage the Seahawks in trade talks for FS Earl Thomas.

At one time, Thomas to the Cowboys seemed inevitable but trade talks have died down in recent weeks. Despite this, the Cowboys' interest in Thomas has never waned and with owner Jerry Jones headed to Seattle for Sunday's game, the sides will finally have a chance to meet face to face. The five-time Pro Bowler and Texas native has openly expressed his desire to play in Dallas. Thomas also has a connection to DBs coach Kris Richard, who previously served as the Seahawks' defensive coordinator. He'd be a great fit for the Cowboys, though obviously it's going to take a king's ransom to pry him away from Seattle.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys don't have interest in Josh Gordon.

Dallas and San Francisco are Gordon's preferred landing spots, but the Cowboys won't be pursuing him. The Cowboys plan to re-sign Brice Butler rather than make a splash on Gordon. The Jets have also been linked as a possible Gordon suitor.
Sep 16 - 6:30 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Josh Gordon is keeping "his eye on" the 49ers and Cowboys.

Rapoport adds that Gordon's impending release is not related to any substance abuse violation and was mostly the result of a hamstring injury he suffered during a recent photo shoot. The Niners and Cowboys would both be logical fits as San Francisco is currently without deep threat Marquise Goodwin (quad) while Dallas is currently trotting out a receiving corps of Allen Hurns, Cole Beasley and Deonte Thompson. Gordon is sure to attract interest, though teams need to know that he's healthy before taking a chance on him.
Sep 16 - 9:25 AM

Cowboys are working out free agent OG Xavier Su'a-Filo.

Dallas just acquired OG Parker Ehinger in a trade, but he reportedly picked up an injury during Wednesday's practice. Su'a-Filo has struggled throughout his career, but he would at least offer experience.
Sep 6 - 12:03 PM

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas has ended his holdout and will report to the team on Wednesday.

The Cowboys tried hard to acquire Thomas, offering a third-rounder before upping it to a second-rounder, but the Seahawks were'n't having it. Thomas expressed his feeling of disrespect from the Seahawks on Instagram on Wednesday but will otherwise report and play out the final year of his deal. We think it's still possible a trade is worked out at some point this season.
Sep 5 - 12:26 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cowboys are now offering the Seahawks a second-round pick in a trade for holdout FS Earl Thomas.

They were previously offering a third-rounder but recently upped the ante. Per Schefter, the Seahawks are still holding out for more. It's tough to see Seattle getting anything better than this for a player who clearly doesn't want to play for them and is content on skipping games. The Seahawks have their home opener in Week 3 against none other than the Cowboys.
Sep 5 - 12:01 PM

Jerry Jones said the Cowboys are not in the market for a backup quarterback.

Dallas attempted to trade up for Paxton Lynch in 2016, so they were understandably connected with the bust after he was waived by the Broncos. Jones says the team is set with Cooper Rush and fifth-round rookie Mike White behind Dak Prescott, however. Lynch is visiting the Bills on Tuesday.
Sep 4 - 10:28 AM

Packers signed RB Darius Jackson.

Cut by Dallas over the weekend, Jackson originally ended up on the Cowboys' practice squad, the Packers offered him a chance on their active roster. Jackson will serve as depth behind Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery during Aaron Jones' suspension.
Sep 3 - 12:09 PM

The Cowboys waived DL Jihad Ward.

Ward was a candidate for an early-season roles with David Irving suspended but didn't show enough in training camp. The Cowboys also waived/released WR Lance Lenoir, WR Darren Carrington, WR MeKale McKay, WR K.D. Cannon, WR Dres Anderson, OL Kyle Bosch, OL Matt Diaz, OL Damien Mama, OL Jacob Ohnesorge, OL Jake Campos, TE David Wells, RB Darius Jackson, RB Trey Williams, RB Jordan Chunn, CB Marquez White, CB Duke Thomas, CB Donovan Olumba, S Kam Kelly, S Dominick Sanders, LB Eric Pinkins, LB Tre’Von Johnson, LB Joel Lanning, LB Kyle Quiero, DL Lewis Neal, DL Austin Larkin, DL Charles Tapper, DL Caruan Reid, and LS Scott Daly.
Sep 1 - 4:52 PM

Vikings CB Terence Newman announced his retirement from the NFL after 15 seasons.

Newman turns 40 in three days. A remarkable career for Newman, who was the fifth overall pick in the 2003 draft by the Cowboys. He spent his first nine seasons in Dallas followed by three each with the Bengals and Vikings, following coach Mike Zimmer in all three cities. Newman attributed his longevity to red wine. He made two Pro Bowls and recorded 42 career interceptions.
