Here’s exactly who will make up the Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster at 3 p.m. Saturday (I think):
And how about this: What if Dallas goes with the unusual move of keeping both Vaughan and Jameill Showers on the practice squad?
I know you want Dallas to trade for somebody. But you need to separate yourself from the silliness; Dallas sources told me they never even talked to Denver on Friday about Montee Ball ... I mean, never happened. These are your three. In the unlikely event a "star'' is needed later, I suppose they'll shoot for that. More likely: A cheap, young back who plays teams. Oh, and Gus Johnson is going to beat out Ben Malena for the P-squad.
One more thing: Man, you hope Randle has grown up out of goofballdom.
Jason Garrett believes in having one. Period.
A.J. Jenkins, I think, was an "almost'' here. If Street reaches the coaches' goals for him, this is a special group, all the way down to Lucky's Percy Harvin-type sub packages.
is there a trade-able commodity here?
They might be a guy short here -- and they might end up shopping for swing-tackle help. Remember, the rookie Green is on PUP and maybe the rookie Lawrence moves to the P-squad.
So they keep 11 D-linemen? Yeah, I think so. And remember, this is after releasing a good player like Gardner and without counting a great player like the suspended Greg Hardy.
Remember, like Hardy above, Rolando McClain doesn't count against this group yet.
The Cowboys aren't done looking here. Tim Scott will be a practice-squadder. He came on fast.
The Cowboys might be done with specalists but of course they aren't done. This is the 53 at 3 p.m. ... with more moves, more churning, maybe even a late-pick trade still to go.
