    Your number 1 source for all things HaW Dallas Cowboys!

    Disappointment. The only word you can use to describe the last 2 seasons. The Cowboys have been eliminated in back to back NFC Championship games and now the ride could be coming to an end. Salary Cap catches everyone eventually and the Boys are no different. Already this offseason Dallas has said goodbye to 2 huge playmakers on each side of the ball. Julius Thomas has been a mainstay over his time in Dallas. He was a crutch for Jimmy Russell as he grew into the force he is today and his contributions to the offense will be missed here. We want to wish JT all the luck with his new team in Portland.

    Equally as sad news to report here, Sean Lee has been sent to Chicago to finish out his career. Sean Lee was a veteran leader on this defense but his being moved was rumored for some time. Sliding performance and the growth of JaMichael McElroy as the leader of this defense are said to be factors alongside Lee's staggering contract number. Best of luck to you as well Sean up there in Chicago. Make us all proud!

    Now for the good news!

    2 huge Contracts came due this offseason. Celebrated Defensive End Randy Gregory and MLB JaMicahael McElroy. With the contracts of JT and Sean Lee clearing the Boys were loaded in cap and ready to sign their 2 defensive All-Pros. McElroy signed on the dotted line after just a few hours of negotiations. He wanted to stay a Cowboy and everyone from the Owner down wanted him here. Randy Gregory was a tougher contract. Rumor has it that negotiations came down to the wire. The owner himself was negotiating with Gregorys agent well into the early morning hours but from what we hear out of Valley Ranch Gregory will be a Cowboy for the next 6 years.

    Wheres does this leave us?

    Sean lee and Julius Thomas are gone. McElroy and Gregory are still here. So the lingering question is where does this leave the Cowboys? Anthony Hitchens has been tabbed to start at ROLB and Gavin Escobar will finally get his day in the sun at Tight End. So obviously neither of these guys are as talented as the 2 that just left but can they fill the void? Brice Butler proved to be a wise acquisition for last offseason as he was just a few yards short of 1,000 yards receiving. Dez was once again Dez and Terrance Williams continues to be steady. Christine Michael had another year of 1000+ yards on the ground and The Cowboys still have the best offensive line in football. So the point of all of that is to say Dallas will be fine. This draft will be huge for the longevity of this team but the show must, and will, go on.

    We fully expect to see the Cowboys dominate the NFC East again and contend for a Super Bowl. you can count on it.

    We'll be back in the coming days with contract figures as they are finalized. Also keep an eye out for our Cowboys Mock draft 1.0!

    Ok i know what you're all thinking. We didnt do a mock draft. I know, I'm a terrible blogger and you all are super disappointed. So to make it up to you I'm going to start a series of Cowboys player spotlights. i don't know how many or how often ill do them but I'm going to try and post one every week to highlight a special player either overall or just form that particular week. So in the spirit of all that i present to you the 4th overall selection from the last draft, Cornerback LeNerick Jordan.

    [​IMG]

    LeNerick Jordan
    Cornerback
    Michigan State
    5'11" 185 lbs

    Jordan put scouts on notice at the NFL Combine when he posted a staggering 4.3 40. The Cowboys scouts were sold on Jordan from Day 1 however. Long touted as the number 1 talent in the draft by the Boys ownership was thrilled when he was available at pick 4. It was a short conversation in the war room that day and Jordan has gone from Spartan to Cowboy and made a statement already! In his second professional game he intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass late in the game and returned it 64 yards for his first interception and touchdown as a professional. It also sealed the victory for Dallas which is the most important part anyways. Coaches have raved about this kids work ethic and while its too early to tell the future is bright for this young man.

    [​IMG] The Dallas Cowboys have selected Cornerback Rajaan McFadden 6th overall.
    McFadden is a 6' 180 pound corner out of FCS school Florida A&M. He is a world class athlete and will need all that athleticism as he will be tasked with stepping straight into the fire as the number 2 corner behind Lenerick Jordan. Many scouts were worried that his numbers were a product of lesser competition having played for an FCS program but the Boys seem to think otherwise. A position of need has been filled here and Dallas looks to continue its strangle hold on the NFC East.

    Get hyped Cowboys Nation!

    It seems the Boys and the Texans had words. Came close to a deal but Dallas backed out at the last second.

    Dallas Cowboys finally make a splash in free agency by bringing in WR Rashawn Jeffery!

    http://daddyleagues.com/haw/player/5506793/attributes

    Jeffery may be new to the Cowboys but he is a familiar face to our quarterback. Jeffery and Russell starred together at The Ohio State university.

    Jeffery brings a big body at 6'4" and top end speed to become an instant weapon in and out of the red zone.

    The draft is officially concluded and the Cowboys came away with some playmakers!

    With Christine Michale being closer to 40 than productive the Boys opted to find his replacement in what was the deepest running back draft to date! They almost pulled the trigger on this guy at 27 but opted to wait when another talent fell into their laps. But we will get to that in a bit.

    Ladies and gentleman the new bell cow in the Dallas backfield:

    Quay Grove- USC
    [​IMG]

    Grove was a highly productive player for the Trojans over his career. He is one of the most polished runner in this draft but some wonder if he isn't already at his ceiling. Well all we have to say is if this guy can produce in the pros like he did in SoCal then who cares!

    Next up is the boys first round selection this year. This guy was a pre draft visit to valley ranch but no one expected he would actually be available. When he fell to 27 the Dallas war room was star struck as they took all the time they had on the clock to run the card to the podium. When his name was called high fives and yee haws were everywhere as the Cowboys had nabbed a top 5 talent on their board and never had to budge from their original spot.

    I present to you:

    Dalen Blake- UCLA
    [​IMG]

    Blake made a name for himself during his time with the Bruins. He is a sure tackler with an amazing motor, great instincts and a nose for the ball. There aren't many holes in this young mans game and he slides into the Will linebacker position as a natural fit right next to All Pro McElroy. The FO was happy this name was on the card, this young man was happy and now he will endear himself to Cowboys Nation.

    The draft was good, beer is good and so is football season. Which is right around the corner.......ya know......if you have been living under a rock and didn't know already.
