    OK everybody, it's time to put away the lanterns, the watch can come to an end. DMN's Rainer Sabin reports that the Cowboys have filled the eighth and final practice squad slot by inking 23 year old defensive tackle Robert Callaway.

    Callaway spent the 2010 season on the practice squad of the Detroit Lions, and was released this past Saturday as that team trimmed down to 53 players.

    According to our SBNation brother site Pride of Detroit, Callaway had an outstanding preseason for the Lions in his second go-around with the team, recording a sack and a forced fumble....

    I don't think anyone signed him after the supplemental draft. Poor kid got screwed over by the nfl, but he must not have the talent to make it anyway.

    Nothing, other than what the OP posted. Just love the fact that the Boys found a nice DT prospect with size.

    Callaway at 6'5" & 315lbs (and only 23 yrs old) is exactly what the Cowboys need at NG in the very near future. I see him getting up to 325lbs or 330lbs within 4-6 weeks in Woicik's strength training program. The Lion's GM admitted that he had one of the best preseason's on the Defensive Line but they were too deep at his position to keep him. In nearly everyone's opinion, Callaway is going to be a freakin BEAST for Rob Ryan with his strength-size-quickness on our Defensive Line and will help this team immediately on 3rd and short or Goal Line. If a Defensive Starter goes down with an injury, I expect him to be called up immediately. He's probably as good (right now) as anyone that we've got on our Defensive Line including (30yr old) Jay Ratliff who's 6' 4" but light at 302lbs (although Jay's quick enough to demand double-teams on most plays). The Football gods continue to SMILE on JG!!!!

    you do not add good weight that fast unless you have not had a good weight training program. The Lions have a good one. If he did not add much weight in the 6 weeks he had with them it is not going to happen with us. Somehow people seem to think Woicik is some kind of miracle worker; he is not.

    yeah, we ALL know about good weight. I was ONLY exaggerating to make a point. He's probably already at 325lbs and if he ATE a buffett of steak and potatoes and drank a gallon of water, he'd probably be 335lbs in one meal.

    Surprised someone didn't snatch him before us.


    Austin Anthony | The Flint Journal Robert Callaway signs with Dallas Cowboys' practice squad.
    FLINT — Robert Callaway was not ready to work at an everyday 9-5 job.

    He’d come too far.

    Although his dreams were temporarily derailed in the Motor City, Callaway was confident he would receive another NFL job.

    After an official workout with the Dallas Cowboys today, “America’s Team” extended Callaway a one-year deal to their practice squad.

    He accepted the contract and will begin performing in team drills tomorrow.

    “I was just staying mentally prepared. I was down for two days and I got a call from the Minnesota (Vikings) and I had a pretty good workout,” said Callaway. “Then the day after that Dallas called me and they worked me out and they signed me to the practice squad.”

    Robert Callaway. He is the kid on the right, right? Not all THAT impressive. :D

    Seriously though, unless he was pushed off by Suh, maybe we should settle down on expectations for a minute.

    Looks kinda impressive to me. Not much body fat on this guy except for gut. If he's only 23yrs old, he's got a ton of room to grow into that 6'5" frame. He may have elite quickness and measurables if Detroit tried to get him on their PS and Vikes and Boys sniffed around.
