Dwayne Harris doesn't typically get a lot of ink in the local sports press. The wide receiver, selected in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, didn't catch a pass in more than half the games he played last year, and his 222 receiving yards put him seventh on the team. Under normal circumstances, the ... More >>
DJ NVS got his start spinning records 15 years ago. "I have always been around music, and had a few friends that were already DJing," he says. "One day, I said to myself, 'Hey, I can do that!'" So, he did. And now the California native has made a name for himself as a DJ in the metroplex. For ins ... More >>
10. Cowboys' punter Mat McBriar kicked four times Saturday. He launched a 61-yarder in the third quarter, had a net average of 50.8 and pinned Houston inside the 20 twice. So much for the good news. 9. I understand this was a practice game. An exhibition. A glorified scrimmage.&nbs ... More >>
Dez Bryant is out. Martellus Bennett is angry. Marc Colombo is hurt. The Dallas Cowboys aren't scoring. And even mild-mannered offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is mad. You worried? The Cowboys have had 22 offensive possessions without a touchdown in two exhibition games. It's the first t ... More >>
Was it, as Roy Williams denies, karma? Or was it, as Jerry Jones suggests, Wade Phillips' fault? Either way, the ankle injury suffered here in San Antonio Friday afternoon by rookie receiver Dez Bryant has yanked the momentum of Dallas Cowboys' training camp to a screeching halt. S ... More >>
Different vibe in Austin, sayeth this T-shirt for sale on South Congress. Born in Oak Cliff. Raised in Duncanville. Citizen of Dallas. But every time I go to Austin - like this past weekend when I skeedaddled from Cowboys' Camp in San Antonio for a quick getaway - I feel like I belong ther ... More >>
Going: Brad Johnson. Coming: Trent Green? Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said his team won't make a "big splash" in NFL free agency that kicks off right about now. Maybe not, but he does need to make at least a ripple with the signing of a backup quarterback, inside linebacker and safety ... More >>
Holy hell, he's even worse than we thought. Giants Stadium has long been a house of horrors and horseshit for Dallas Cowboys’ quarterbacks. Hall of Famer Troy Aikman threw a career-high five interceptions in New Jersey in 2000. In ’01 backup Clint Stoerner topped that by tossing four pic ... More >>
The Cowboys are counting on NFL outlaw Pacman Jones to pop the top on their sixth Super Bowl.
Roy Williams, a Pro Bowler? Horse hockey. You might say. I don’t trust Roy Williams. But I do trust Dave Campo. And Campo, the former Cowboys’ head coach who’s back as the team’s secondary coach, says we’ll see the “old Roy Williams” again this year. “From watching film o ... More >>
Better than Brad Johnson, spleen or no. In news that the Fort Worth Star-Telegram first reported earlier this month and the St. Petersburg Times touched on again yesterday, the Cowboys are seriously considering a trade for former University of Texas and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback C ...

Relax, both coaches could be talking to Tony Romo again next season. I’ll serve up a smorgasbord of training camp insights later this morning, but wanted to get to the news of the day first. Contrary to the asinine sentiments of some columnists, this isn't guaranteed to be Wade Phillips' ... More >>
Terry Glenn's leverage is running on empty. It’s preposterous to think the Cowboys will release veteran receiver Terry Glenn. Why? First of all, they need him. Secondly, they have him. As in, over a barrel. Before pondering anything else about Glenn’s trials and tribs during minicamp ... More >>

Cowboy's body and story are full of holes
Why is Lincoln Kennedy so danged happy? Maybe it's because the former Raider's getting a shot at being a Cowboy during training camp. Two words this morning: Lincoln Kennedy. Been a while since you heard that name, eh? Well, you'll be hearing it again later today as the Dallas Cowboys bring in the f ... More >>
It's only the first day of Dallas Cowboys training camp here in Oxnard, California, but at least one major player is already in mid-season form.
