    Apr 14 - Waived: Mark Tuinei (1998); Re-signed: Nate Jones & Stephen Bowen (2007)

    Trivia: A former Cowboy (not listed above) was born today; his father is also a former Cowboy. Who is the former Cowboy whose birthday is today? When did he play for the Cowboys? Who is his father? His father was inducted into which team's HOF?

    Craig Kupp, who never actually played for Dallas, but was on the team in 1991. His Dad Jake did though in 1964 and 1965. He was the Cowboys draft pick one round before Roger Staubach. He is inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame.

    One of only 2 fathers and sons to both play for the Cowboys. Who was the other?

    Indeed; and while we're on the theme of father-son Cowboy combos, here's another: who was the father-son combination, one who coached for the Cowboys and the other who played (not necessarily at the same time)?
