    Guess this means all of our interior linemen suck and noone in the league would ever want any of them....

    That's irritating. I think he had potential, if he could ever get past this ankle thing. Was hoping to sneak him through waivers and place him on our IR in hopes of being a possible starter next year.

    Peterman has been a solid starter for them, and if Nagy can stay healthy, he may be as well.

    Not good news, in my opinion, but it's what they had to do for their own roster needs.

    Nagy played well against the Lions last year. Maybe they figured he could develop down the road. Not good new at all.

    My thought as well. I presume they'll have to carry him on their roster and wait out the rehab. I suspect Dallas did want him but thought they could sneak him through while everyone is concerned about evaluation healthy rosters of 90.

    Detroit, once they see his condition, might determine they can't wait either. Who knows. While I am disappointed, at the same time we are not lacking in developmental projects. Arkin, Kowalski, Leary, Parnell, Costa...

    Why couldn't we just place him on IR? You mean to tell me that if Witten had to miss the year we will have to waive him?

    He's a young OL with starting experience for free.

    Sometimes patience is rewarded, but here they better be an All-Pro as a rookie or feed them to the pigs.

    Not if they wait until after final cuts.

    It happens...I think Nagy has a future as a solid OL. He has the feet and decent technique. He obviously needs to get stronger. I wouldve preferred to keep him around...

    You can't place players on IR until final cuts. If we had to (and I pray to God we don't) put Witten on IR that's when we'd do it, because with the rosters currently expanded a player must pass through waivers first so they aren't simply being stashed there.

    Nagy Reportedly Claimed Off Waivers By Detroit Lions

    Posted 21 minutes ago

    Josh EllisDallasCowboys.com Staff Writer


    The Cowboys won't get to keep guard Bill Nagy after all, according to a report.

    Tim Twentyman, a writer for DetroitLions.com, tweets that the team has been awarded former Cowboys seventh-round pick Bill Nagy after putting in a waiver claim.

    Nagy, who had been expected to compete for a job as the Cowboys' starting center this year, suffered a high sprain of the same ankle that he broke against New England last year, and is expected to require season-ending surgery. He was waived/injured by the Cowboys on Wednesday. The team would have retained his rights and been able to place him on the Injured Reserve had he gone unclaimed.

    It's a disappointing loss for the Cowboys, who were impressed enough with Nagy last year to make him their opening day starter....

    Nah I'm just sick of the attitude that our young guys have no talent, without even giving them a chance to develop.

    Offensive linemen are among the positions which take the longest to develop, but just saying they stink currently and they will never get better, so we need to overdraft a position that is very low in terms of premium positions just irritates me.... its just so short-sighted.
