Actually a surprise camp signing. Why sign him when Jones is guaranteed a check this year. I could see signing a kicker.

Just a camp leg.

Also a support to create competition on the kicker's side of the field. You just can't have two guys standing around kicking the ball 8 hours a day. Your leg would be damaged after one training camp.

They will also have snappers and ball boys to support the kicking specialists and kicking sessions. I wouldn't worry about it. This isn't something they are targeting to get Jones off the roster.

But....if this kid kicks his leg off and starts consistently booming all of his punts 70+ yards then we have got something here for the pre-season to consider.

So camp body first, let's see if there is additional value second.

It isn't a big surprise the Cowboys have signed an extra long-snapper and an extra punter. I expect the Cowboys to sign another place-kicker before training camp also.

Need rest for the first half of the season MVP. DAL was constantly punting... it's a wonder he made it out healthy after what Garrett did to Bailey's leg.

Good idea getting Jones some rest in camp.

I predict Chris Jones will be pushed from this signing and will bounce back and be great. :D

every offseason they have two kickers and two punters through TC..its camp bodys people and should one maybe look better ala Getting Baily cut for Maher then its bonus..snide remarks are not necessary.they have what 70-90 players through tc and then around preseason 73 and cut down before game one to 53 plus PS?

not a surprise..

It shouldn't be. It is standard practice.

The extra long snapper is just to keep LaDouceur fresh. Funny thing is, a lot of the guys we have brought in as camp bodies end up sticking across the league.

Now, in regards to the kicker? I want serious competition. Maher was way too inconsistent.

The Orozco kid from Grambling nailed it on Dallas Day. He'd be a good UDFA to bring in.
