    The Cowboys will call up rookie guard Ronald Leary from the practice squad after another team attempted to sign him to its 53-man roster.

    Leary signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent and was guaranteed $214,000, the most money across the league for a non-drafted player. He became a favorite of owner and general manager Jerry Jones and was working with the first-team line during training camp in part because of injury.

    Leary has been on the practice squad all season.

    To make room for Leary the Cowboys will have to make a roster move.

    So now we have 11 OL on the 53-man roster. Who goes? Dockery, Arkin, Weems?

    i wonder which team wanted to sign him. i think that leary can still be a good backup player. i would not be surprised if the makes the team next year as a backup if he has good offseason training and can make adjustments to the speed of the game.

    weems maybe? but we do have too many guards (not many good ones lol) so maybe dockery. But I can see arkin also, but I rather it be dockery.

    Why are people giving up on him as a long term solution? I think people were overreacting in the offseason when they were talking about him like he was gonna win the starting job as a UDFA and make the Pro Bowl. But he's still young and had a lot of intrigue coming out of the draft. His degenerative knee issue hasn't poked its head out yet. I don't see why he can't still be at least considered as a solution at the guard position. It seems like people have totally forgotten about him.

    Clearly the coaches see something ni him. He was nothing short of horrible in the preseason. But I guess they like his upside.

    Being a favorite of Jerry Jones makes me uneasy though. Jerry tends to want to hang to his guys too much. He loses objectivity.

    See Felix Jones.

    Weems was signed off Denver's practice squad two weeks ago so I don't believe he can be cut.

    The easy move would be Ratliff to IR.

    Cowboys evaluation unknown:
    CB Coe Michael
    DT Schaefering Brian
    LB Poppinga Brady
    WR Armstrong Anthony

    Inactive last week:
    RB Tanner Phillip

    Gone next year anyway:
    WR Ogletree Kevin
    G Dockery Derrick
    RB Jones Felix

    Do they need both:
    S Frampton Eric
    S Peprah Charlie

    If they were going to cut him then it would have already happened:
    G Arkin David

    Can be cut, but must be paid a minimum of 3-weeks salary from the time he was signed from a practice squad:
    T Weems Darrion

    He looked like a Rookie that was changing positions.

    Physically, he appeared to have NFL level size, strength and quickness.

    I think probably Coe is gone now that Mo and Peprah are coming back from injury.

    “@CowboyRT: @BryanBroaddus Since Cowboys called Leary up, you think Boyz may move away from Dockery?” No I don't they still like him.
