The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill heard "strong rumors" last offseason that the Cowboys were interested in Saints DB Kenny Vaccaro.

It's notable because Vaccaro's contract is now up, and he will likely get paid handsomely on the open market. Vaccaro is from Brownwood (TX) and played college ball for the Longhorns. The Cowboys need help throughout the secondary.

Former Seahawks DC Kris Richard met with the Cowboys on Sunday.

Richard was let go earlier this offseason after Seattle missed the playoffs for the first time in six years. The Cowboys already have a defensive coordinator—Rod Marinell has held that position since 2014—so it's unclear what role Dallas would want him for. The 38-year-old has coached in the league since 2010.

Cowboys released LB Justin Durant.

Signed on the eve of training camp, the 11-year veteran was barely used this season, dealing with injuries and healthy scratches. 2018 will be Durant's age-33 campaign.

Darren McFadden has announced his retirement after 10 years in the NFL.

Waived by the Cowboys two days ago, McFadden went unclaimed on waivers. Even with Ezekiel Elliott suspended since Week 10, 30-year-old McFadden had been unable to get on the field for the Cowboys, getting scratched twice in three games since Zeke's ban took effect. Frankly, McFadden looked done in the preseason. He's apparently come to the same conclusion. It's a quiet end to a career that never quite lived up to expectations but was ultimately solid. The No. 4 overall pick of the 2008 draft after a sensational career at Arkansas, McFadden had 1,000-yard rushing seasons with both the Raiders and Cowboys. Much of McFadden's once-prodigious juice was sapped by early-career injuries. He retires with a career 4.16 YPC and 33 total touchdowns.

Cowboys waived Darren McFadden.

It is not a surprise considering McFadden could not crack the game-day roster even with Ezekiel Elliott suspended. With a reasonable salary, McFadden could end up getting claimed, and he should land with another team in the near future even is he slips through waivers. The Cowboys will continue to ride with Alfred Morris and Rod Smith as their top two backs until Zeke returns.

Former Patriots, Packers, and Cowboys WR Terry Glenn died in a car crash early Monday morning at the age of 43.

The No. 7 overall pick of the 1996 draft by the Patriots, Glenn played 12 seasons in the NFL including his final five with the Cowboys. The receiver had a tumultuous career off the field which played a role in him being suspended for New England's Super Bowl run in 2001, and he had more run-ins with the law following his retirement. He appeared to have gotten on the right track in recent years, however, and had just gotten engaged. It is a tragic situation, and our thoughts are with his family.

Free agent DE Owa Odighizuwa worked out for the Cowboys Monday.

Odighizuwa was cut by the Giants after a tumultuous offseason in which he threatened retirement before being hit with a four-game PED suspension late in camp. The Giants let him go at final cuts, and this is the first we have heard from him since. A third-round pick in 2015, Odighizuwa has the talent to be a factor if his head is in the right place.

Cowboys released QB Kellen Moore.

The writing was on the wall after Moore was a healthy scratch in favor of Cooper Rush last Sunday. Frankly, it's astounding Moore made it as long as he did in Dallas. He does not have an NFL skill-set.

Cowboys will work out free agent Ks Jason Myers, Mike Nugent, Sam Irwin Hill, and Younghoe Koo.

The workouts are necessary with Dan Bailey (groin) injured, although the Cowboys have yet to rule him out for this week's matchup with the Redskins. Myers was let go by the Jaguars last week, Koo opened the season with the Chargers, and Irwin Hill spent time with the Cowboys in training camp.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 2018 NFL draft will be held at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex.

Chicago and Philadelphia did remarkable jobs hosting the weekend event the past two years after the NFL decided to move the draft out of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. But Jerry's World at AT&T Stadium will provide a massive, expansive experience for the fans and bring in a bunch of money. The draft will be held again in late April from the 26th to the 28th.

Free agent LB Navorro Bowman is scheduled to visit the Raiders and Cowboys this week.

They're Bowman's first-known visits since he was cut loose on Friday. He's expected to find a new team in short order, perhaps by Monday afternoon.

Cowboys released CB Nolan Carroll.

Carroll, 30, got $4 million guaranteed from Dallas back in March, including a $3 million signing bonus. He played in two games before suffering a concussion, and the Cowboys are cutting bait after rookie Jourdan Lewis has stepped up opposite Anthony Brown. Carroll is about at the end of the line.
Wed, Oct 11, 2017 09:29:00 AM

Cowboys waived DE Jayrone Elliott.

The Cowboys needed to clear a roster spot for Damontre Moore, who is coming off suspension. Elliott will hunt for special teams work on the open market.

Bills signed DT Cedric Thornton, formerly of the Cowboys.

Thornton tanked as a Cowboy last year, and was let go at final cuts last weekend. Headed into his age-29 season, Thornton had been an asset against the run before last season. He could stick on the 53-man roster.
Tue, Sep 5, 2017 03:35:00 PM

Cowboys released LB Mark Nzeocha.

The Cowboys needed to clear a roster spot for LB Jayrone Elliott. Nzekocha has had trouble staying healthy, missing time with an Achilles injury last year and undergoing a knee scope in June. He's played just 16 snaps since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2015.

Cowboys released DT Cedric Thornton.

Signed to a four-year deal last offseason, Thornton received $9 million for his one season in Dallas. He wasn't able to channel his success from Philly.

Texans claimed WR Andy Jones off waivers from the Cowboys.

Jones was let go by the Cowboys on Saturday. He'll gives the Texans some depth while Braxton Miller (ankle) and Will Fuller (collarbone) work their way back from injuries.
Sun, Sep 3, 2017 01:05:00 PM

Cowboys released QB Luke McCown.

It seems like the Cowboys are going with Cooper Ruch behind Dak Presott.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 03:34:00 PM

Cowboys released QB Kellen Moore.

Moore entered camp as Dak Prescott's backup, but he was outplayed by Cooper Rush this preseason. Dallas could roll with Rush or look to add a veteran. Brandon Weeden, who spent time with the Cowboys in 2014 and 2015, was just cut by the Texans. Dallas also could bring back Moore.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 03:24:00 PM

Cowboys released S Robert Blanton.

Blanton is a veteran with starting experience and an asset on special teams, so it is somewhat surprising he could not carve out a role in the Cowboys' questionable secondary.
