    The Cowboys have signed former Vanderbilt guard Ryan Seymour to the active list, it was announced on the official NFL transactions file from Thursday.
    Seymour was a member of the Cowboys' practice squad for the 2016 season. He was made active for Week 17's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Seymour was waved before the Cowboys' divisional round playoff in favor of Jonathan Cooper.

    A player, who the team kept around on the practice squad, still sounds interesting as a developmental player.

    This is the storyline on Cooper...

    @toddarcher: Absolutely they will try, but I think it will come down to opportunity for Cooper. He enjoyed his short time with the Cowboys. They enjoyed him. But if he can find a place where he will start, I think he would take that opportunity. With La'el Collins returning to health, there’s not an open spot on the line. The Cowboys would like to bring Cooper back for the same reason they put the second-round tender on Ronald Leary last year: They would like to have insurance in case of injury. One spot where Cooper would offer more of an advantage than Leary is that he can play center. That would likely get him on the gameday roster as the swing interior lineman.

    If we hear Cooper is resigning with us then the "Collins to RT" idea will gain additional weight. I don't think the Cowboys want to put Collins at RT but we'll see.

    Who? Cooper? If he thinks he's likely to sit behind Collins then he may want to go elsewhere to start. If the Cowboys are quietly tell him they are moving Collins to guard and he'll be the likely starter at LG (or at least competing against career backups) then he would be more likely to stay. Resigning Cooper would happen before any announcement of Collins moving or before the next mini camp.

    Get a dictionary. Resign does not mean what you think it means

    Resign ... or resign. Perhaps we're talking about two different definitions.

    Re-sign. Resign. Two different words. Use the correct word.

    Many people use it incorrectly. He didn't have to be mean about.

    resign: When you quit a job, you turn in a letter of resignation. You resign.

    re-sign: To sign again.

    Resign is often pronounced re-zine.

    Sign and re-sign are generally pronounced sine or re-sine.

    This coming from someone who starts a sentence with "Or" and has no end punctuation. Is that how it works? Do I have it right?

    You could have simply used context clues to understand the usage and moved along. Instead you decided to hijack this thread and try to make yourself feel superior in the usage of one word. Unfortunately, no one cares.

    Everyone with half a brain knew what he meant......That automatically excludes beta. He hasn't installed the piece of glass in his belly button, which would allow him to see, due to posterior placement of the head.
