FO being proactive instead of reactive.
Lirim Hajrullahu entered pro football the same year as Garrett Gilbert (2014).
Much more accomplished career in the CFL, compared to bouncing around NFL practice squads.
Zeurlein not ready for season opener - Hajrullahu holds down the fort.
Greg returns - but is subpar - Lirim continues as #1 PK.
Zeurlin comes back in optimum form.... Hajrullahu is a great trade chip for a good player the Cowboys covet at a position of need - C, DT.
Win-Win.

From Mickey Spagnola:

· Kick Around: Don't read too much into the Cowboys likely hooking up with free-agent kicker Lirim Hajrullahu, a four-year veteran of the CFL where he kicked the Grey Cup-winning field goal in 2017 for Toronto. This likely has nothing to do with veteran kicker Greg Zuerlein still on PUP or any anxiety caused by no field-goal attempts in team practice or a preseason game so far, rehabbing from his May back surgery. The Cowboys need a kicker for at least Saturday's preseason game against Houston since punter/kicker Hunter Niswander, who has handled punts and place kicks in the first two preseason games, has developed back soreness and won't be available. Niswander's injury settles what little punter competition might have developed, assuring Bryan Anger the job.
