Ever notice how many UFA we pick up ! Half the team must have gone undrafted ..... Starting to feel like 2013 all over again.

We also released S Rolan Milligan and OT Darryl Baldwin.

Milligan's a bit of a surprise to me, but he apparently has a foot injury.

That leaves us with a roster spot to fill, which presumably will be used for a quarterback.

Why is McClain still on this roster?? I don't think I ever recall him playing more than 3 games.

It was explained somewhere that it has to do with his $750,000 bonus. If Dallas releases him, he gets to keep the entire bonus. The longer they keep him and he doesn't play, the more money they get back, along with incentive money he was given. That money can be moved onto next year's cap, I believe.

Wrong McClain.

seems like he should have been picked up by a 3-4 team by now.

Dixon's father was a solid, blue collar linebacker for a number of seasons in the league. Hope his son has the same toughness.

Mickey Spagnola was talking bad about the guy on Talkin' Cowboys today. He called him a "trash can, dough boy, Michelin Man" after seeing him show up for the workout, but that was before he heard that the Cowboys signed him. Pretty funny.

Guess they needed an available camp BODY. I'll write it of to being a 1-tech.

@Spags52 Did the Cowboys just sign the DT that you compared to a trash can? lol I hope that was someone else!

Sometimes being a mindless apologist for the team backfires on you.
