WR Dez Bryant could return punts for Cowboys


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Wide receiver Dez Bryant is one of the NFL's biggest offensive weapons, and if the Cowboys get creative, he could become a huge special teams asset as well, according to the Dallas Morning News

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said in a call with season-ticket holders that Bryant may get a crack at returning punts this year in the absence of returner Dwayne Harris. Bryant hasn't returned a punt since 2012. 

In referencing the punt return situation, Jones said the team is willing to approach it via committee but that, "Then we have a guy in Dez Bryant who had quite a career returning punts at Oklahoma State. When we need a big play, with him maturing as a player, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see him in some key situations when we need him back there," he said.


Giants make RB Shane Vereen signing official, ink four others


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. 

The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. 

“(I made this) decision with my family,” Vereen said, via the team's official website. “At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York.” 

The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.

Cowboys trying to find ways to help QB not make risky throws


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo tried on two occasions during a Week 1 loss against the 49ers to force the football to wide receiver Dez Bryant despite being covered by multiple defenders. Both times Romo threw interceptions.

"I think it’s pretty clear -- you don’t force the ball to people," head coach Jason Garrett said, per ESPN. "Dez is a great player, but [Jason Witten is] a great player too. Terrance WilliamsCole BeasleyDevin StreetDwayne Harris, all those guys are really, really good football players, who, if given an opportunity, are going to come through for us. Tony understands that. Tony’s typically struck a really nice balance about trying to give these guys a chance and understanding how to read things out and throwing the ball to the right guy."

As one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, defenses will pay extra attention to Bryant on a weekly basis. Garrett said it will be up to the coaching staff to find ways to get the football to Bryant without having Romo make risky throws.

"It’s what happens every week in the NFL," Garrett said. "Dez Bryant, if you look at his whole body of work throughout his career, he’s gotten doubled throughout most games every game he’s every play. The same thing with Jason Witten. These guys are really good players. Week in and week out they find ways, we’ve tried to find ways to give them opportunities."


Cowboys backup pass catchers make things happen Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Cowboys backup pass catchers played a bigger role than expected Week 1 against the 49ers.

Cole Beasley wound up being the most consistent of the bunch. He caught four passes for 42 yards. Beasley received five targets. 

Lance Dunbar and Devin Street also played roles. Dunbar caught three balls for 21 yards. He did not have a rush the entire game. Street caught two passes for 18 yards.

The Cowboys will take on the Titans Week 2.

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”

Cowboys DST historically bad Week 10


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/11/2013) The Cowboys DST gave up an NFL-record 40 first downs and a franchise-record 625 yards in the 49-17 loss at New Orleans. The 625 yards were the most produced by any team in a regular-season, non-overtime game since San Diego gained 661 yards against Cincinnati in 1982.

"I’ve never felt like this before," cornerback Orlando Scandrick told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I can’t remember when I’ve been a part of a game like this before."

Dallas was helpless against Drew Brees, who fell 8 yards shy of becoming the fifth quarterback to go over 400 yards vs. the Cowboys this season. The Cowboys are on pace to allow 7,037 yards, around the NFL record of 7,042 New Orleans gave up last season.

The Cowboys DST got a couple of positive plays. Dwayne Harris recovered a fumbled punt, and Demarcus Ware picked up his fifth sack this season.

Dallas gets a much-needed bye before visiting the Giants in Week 12.
