    Cowboys not resting on their win; plan on signing DT Drake Nevis. Need to make a move to clear roster spot, per a source

    Former LSU standout. Is a better fit for a 4-3 scheme than he is a 3-4 supposedly, which is what the two NFL teams who have cut him (Colts/Chargers) employ. I'm loving the depth we're building on the d-line. I think the signings of Nevis and David Carter last week may mean Casear Rayford can focus more on end. Looks like we're preparing for life without Ratliff and Spencer next year, and that's fine by me if some of these guys turn into quality depth.

    Nevis should be a good fit in this defense. He has a very quick first step.

    Is he backing up Hayden or Hatcher?

    You don't thing that perhaps Arkin is cut? Nahhhhhh that will never happen, Jerry is probably looking to extend him!

    Broaddus was saying last week that Costa could be the OL that's released.

    This may be true, but I don't trust any Broaddus prediction that involves Bernadeau ending up with a bigger role.

    They said Bern has been taking some snaps at center. That seems to indicate Costa could be out.

    Why over Arkin?

    I'm not sure I'd classify Bernadeau's demotion from starting RG to the primary OG/C backup to be a bigger role.

    He didn't say why...it was a Twitter response to a question.
