    Not surprising. His name got tossed around here some last week. Got to give the Cowboys big props this year for all the churning they have done. Some out of necessity I understand but still good to see.

    Why not -- the team has had surprising success eeking productivity from other league cast-offs, journeyman, etc.

    The guy was a #2 round pick two years ago.. while he has been cut twice this year, you just never know....

    Well, the kid has unlimited athletic ability for the position. Question is, does he want to actually play football?

    Link?

    I think this is actually a decent move, if true. At one time not all that long ago, the dude was a can't miss prospect, and obviously we are in dire need of some more help.

    It says on his wikipedia page Marinelli spent a lot of time scouting him. Could be one of those coach-player connections.

    Also, this. Marinelli may be the man for the job.

    He's a DT that was drafted by the Giants. That's about all I know.

    I don't mind. We need bodies, NFL ready bodies. Let the coaching take care of the rest.

    Good move. I assume it's a no-risk contract.

    MA was a great football player in college.

    Marinelli is the man. If anyone can make him into a DL it's Marinelli.
