    Maybe because he's a huge scumbag.

    I know, let's pick him up, draft Manziel AND Sam, we'd have all 3 rings covered...then, the media will be so dumbfounded on who to write about that they all slide!!! yeah, that's it! Then, they can post another picture of tony and THAT will take everyone's attention...

    please , RC is an idiot, and needs to play somewhere other than dallas (like the arena league)

    If Pouncey was the player that was cut, I would like to see how many of you would say pass over his talent. I kinda like a player that has a mean streak.

    I love a mean streak...one of my favorite cowboys of all time was Erik Williams...but, he didn't do the nonsensical things that Incognito reportedly did

    I think you meant to say he's not good enough to join a big league circus like the Cowboys. He'd be nothing more than a sideshow in Jerrys world.

    we can wait until after the draft.

    There are always cuts after the draft and somebody better might pop up.

    The talent is the big difference along with age since Pouncey is only 24.

    Incognito doesn't have a mean streak. He's just a jerk.

    I read he actually graded out pretty poorly the last couple seasons. I am ok with head cases as long as they can ball. This guy is a detriment to a team.

    And this should have ended the thread. We FINALLY got some consistency out of this group last year, the last thing we need is to sign this guy, like adding a clown car as your pace vehicle...

    Well, Pouncey is actually good. But with evidence of him essentially dealing in drugs and prostitution, I think the rewards don't outweigh the risks.

    Incognito has a long history of troubling behavior going back to college, when he was sent for anger management classes by his coaches at Nebraska, got into fights after that and was eventually suspended indefinitely by Bill Callahan (yes, the Cowboys line coach) for repeated violations of team rules and withdrew from school. He transferred to Oregon and was dismissed from the team a week later because he didn't live up to his agreement for coming there which also included anger management classes.

    So he straightened up after college, right? He at least kept his anger confined to the field for a few years, but eventually it got him kicked off the Rams with the general manager telling ESPN that the Rams had given him numerous chances to clean up his act, and had put him on notice that the Rams would cut ties with him if he couldn't control his anger.

    He seemed to avoid getting in trouble publicly for the next few years, but then in 2012 during the Dolphins' annual celebrity golf tournament at the Turnberry Isle Resort and Club in Aventura, Florida, a drunken Incognito harassed a female volunteer at the club. He rubbed her private parts with a golf club, pressed his private parts against her buttocks and dumped water in her face. The matter was referred to Dolphins security. Although former Dolphins wide receiver Nat Moore apologized to her, the volunteer filed a police report after Incognito didn't personally apologize; the matter was later settled after she signed a confidentiality agreement. This incident didn't come to public light until November 2013.[29] Dolphins coach Joe Philbin subsequently confirmed that the Dolphins were aware of the situation, and had taken "immediate action" in response; he didn't elaborate.

    Then came the Jonathan Martin issue.

    The only reason Incognito has been given as many chances as he has is because he does have some talent, but that talent is clearly offset by his issues. There's a difference between a player who plays with an attitude and a player who has an attitude problem. Incognito clearly has a problem.

    I didn't know about the college problems till I posted this and had really forgotten about the golfing incident mainly because it only popped up when the Martin complained about being bullied. The guy has had enough talent to make a college career and pro career though. To me he just sounds like another personality disorder or immature grown up, nothing the Cowboys haven't ever had or probably already have on the roster now hiding in the closet. I can't take another year of knockin on doors to fill in for injuries. Sign him and get him some therapy for a season.
