    This is your chance to show off your knowledge by guessing the 53-man roster for the Cowboys.


    Rules for Participation

    • 1) Only post your 53 man prediction in this thread! This thread is NOT for discussions!
    • 2) Do NOT make more than one post in this thread!
    • 3) You cannot make alterations to your 53-man roster once the site stops you from editing your post so not post it before you are ready!
    • 4) No "change this player", "remove this player", " add that player", etc. will be accepted for any reason.
    • 5) Since it is impossible to know what other free agents will become available, the initial 53-man cut-down roster filed by the Cowboys on September 3rd will be the one used.
    • 6) No free agents signed after September 1st will be considered a part of the roster.
    • 7) To help break any tie-breakers, add your practice squad predictions (separately) as well.
    • 8) In the event of someone copying (intentional or not) another user's predictions, the user who posted first will be the only one credited so hurry!
    • 9) This thread is NOT for discussions!



    Good luck!!

    Starters in bold.

    Offense - 26
    QB (3) - Tony Romo, Jon Kitna, Stephen McGee
    RB (3) - Felix Jones, DeMarco Murray, Phlllip Tanner
    FB (1) - Chris Gronkowski
    TE (4) - Jason Witten, John Phillips, Martellus Bennett, Martin Rucker
    WR (5) - Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Kevin Ogletree, Dwayne Harris, Jesse Holley
    OT (4) - Doug Free, Tyron Smith, Jermey Parnell, Sam Young
    OG (4) - Bill Nagy, Kyle Kosier, David Arkin, Montrae Holland
    C (1) - Phil Costa

    Defense - 24

    ILB (4) - Bradie James, Sean Lee, Keith Brooking, Orie Lemon
    CB (5) - Orlando Scandrick, Mike Jenkins, Terence Newman, Alan Ball, Josh Thomas
    S (4) - Gerald Sensabaugh, Abram Elam, Barry Church, Danny McCray

    ST (4)
    K - David Buehler, Dan Bailey
    P - Mat McBriar
    LS - L.P. LaDouceur

    PUP - ILB Bruce Carter

    Practice Squad
    ILB Kenwin Cummings
    CB Mario Butler
    FB Shaun Chapas
    C Kevin Kowalski

    Notes:

    • Newman will be the third corner this year to maintain his health.
      Carter, when he comes off of PUP, will replace Lemon, who may end up on the PS if still eligible.
      Rucker is the potential roster flex guy for cuts if someone comes available, as is Sam Young if a good OT prospect is available.
      Lots of churn potential on the roster, but a youth movement is afoot.

    I'll admit my scenario of keeping 4 TE's isn't very realistic, but I thought Rucker earned a spot and I don't think they will cut Bennett at this point because of his blocking.
