Cowboys signed DT Terrell McClain to a three-year contract.
The Texans declined to tender McClain in restricted free agency, which would've only cost them $1.431 million. A smallish (6'2/293) defensive tackle going on age 26, McClain graded out slightly above average in Pro Football Focus' 2013 run defense grades, and negatively as a pass rusher. He's not going to make a difference in Dallas, but the Cowboys simply need bodies up front. Mar 12 - 1:35 PM

This guy will be a challenge to see if Marinelli can do something with him. Otherwise just a waste of money. Looks like that door is starting to close on Ware.

The Cowboys are in the market for defensive linemen.

The latest one they have expressed interest in is Seattle tackle Tony McDaniel, according to a league source.

McDaniel, 29, became a full-fledged starter for the first time in his career last season during the Seahawks’ Super Bowl run. He recorded two sacks and 53 tackles, earning plaudits for his work in run defense.

McDaniel signed with Seattle as a free agent in 2013 after spending the previous four seasons in Miami as a reserve.

If McDaniel leaves the Seahawks, they could replace him with Cowboys free agent defensive tackle Jason Hatcher. Hatcher dropped by Seattle’s headquarters on Tuesday and is in Oakland Wednesday visiting with the Raiders, according to a source. For five straight days, he has meetings scheduled with teams, including Tennessee.

As with Hatcher, free agent Chicago Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton of Grapevine has been drawing considerable interest. The Cowboys are eyeing him. But the Vikings are actually sitting down with Melton on Wednesday.

Stay tuned as news trickles out of Valley Ranch and beyond.

Just found out he resigned with Seattle

Cowboys don't have the money to do any real contracts. They have to sign rotation players like McClain and hope they work out.

I can see no way this team gets better this season. Hatcher had a monster year and he is gone, just hasn't signed anywhere yet.

Funny thing is most of these guys are getting contracts over the phone. (pending physicals) Hatcher is flying allover the place, he must be wanting big money.

Our FA signings look like camp fodder to me. How can you give them more money than the rookies some experts are picking to start. Wilbur, Bass (who Hatcher said would replace him) Crawford. All on rookie contracts, makes no sense to me?

Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones has an idea in mind for Tony Romo’s next backup: Brandon Weeden.

Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com reports that theCowboys are interested in Weeden, a 2012 first-round draft pick of the Browns who was cut this week.

Kyle Orton is currently the Cowboys’ backup quarterback, and Orton played reasonably well in Week 17 in place of the injured Romo. But there’s been some talk that Orton might retire, and the Cowboys might see Weeden as the next-best option if Orton decides to walk away. Or they could just be interested in Weeden as the third-string quarterback behind Romo and Orton.

The 30-year-old Weeden, who got a late start on football after playing five years of minor league baseball, has completed 55.9 percent of his passes, with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions, in two years in the NFL

The agent of New Orleans Saints free agent outside linebacker Will Herring said Friday that he’s “very angry” with the Dallas Cowboys for backing out of a one-year deal with his client.

George Mavrikes said the Cowboys “reneged” on the deal, citing their belief that Herring “may be an injury risk.” A Cowboys source and Mavrikes both said that Herring didn’t fail a physical, however.

The two sides agreed on a one-year deal for Herring on Thursday. Less than 24 hours later, the deal was called off.

“He is healthier than 90 percent of the league,” Mavrikes said of Herring. “He hasn’t missed a game or a practice the last two years and maybe missed five or so games in seven years, four because of a hamstring injury in his rookie year.

“It’s crazy and makes no sense. He’s the exact player Dallas needs.”

The signing of Herring would have boosted the Cowboys’ special teams. Herring was the Saints’ special teams captain last season and he would have also given the team more depth at linebacker.

However, Herring is back on the market as an unrestricted free agent and again looking for a new team.

Herring was excited about joining the Cowboys, tweeting Thursday, “Blessed to be playing in the Big D this year and to be a part of Cowboys organization!”

On Friday, Herring tweeted, “The bad

Cowboys still don't know Kyle Orton's future, but they are showing interest in Brandon Weeden



The Cowboys have interest in quarterback Brandon Weeden, according to sources, and their interest might not be tied to Kyle Orton's future.

The Cowboys expect a decision on Orton soon. He was wavering on whether to return, but the Cowboys believe it's unlikely he retires because he would have to repay $3 million from a renegotiated contract last year. He is due $3.25 million in base salary this year.

Orton, 31, played in the regular-season finale against the Eagles after Tony Romo had back surgery and completed 30 of 46 passes for 358 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has played in four games, with one start, in two seasons in Dallas.

The Cowboys have not carried three quarterbacks on their 53-player roster since 2011 when Stephen McGee served as a develomental prospect after the Cowboys made him a fourth-round pick in the 2009 draft.

But they have liked Weeden since the Browns made him the No. 22 overall pick in 2012. He is 30, but he has played only two seasons, with 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.

A rumor circulating around the blogosphere on Friday suggested the Dallas Cowboys were interested in signing former Cleveland Brown quarterback Brandon Weeden. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy was released last week after two lackluster seasons in Cleveland. But should the Cowboys taker a flier on on this 30-year old unemployed quarterback?

Weeden started 20 of 23 games in his short two-year career as a Brown; throwing for 5,116 yards, 23 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He was also sacked 55 times and played under two different coaching staffs. An argument could be made that Weeden was set up to fail in Cleveland.

The Cowboys currently have veteran Tony Romo and Kyle Orton on the team. And Dallas has a history of only carrying two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. But they will be looking for quarterback depth going into OTA’s. mini-camps and training camp this offseason. And I’m sure they wouldn’t be opposed to finding Romo’s eventual replacement during these sessions as well.


Due to his age, Weeden is definitely not a long term solution for the future of the position past Romo. But he could be a perfect replacement for Orton. The 31-year old back-up quarterback has been hinting at retirement this offseason. But it’s more likely he’ll stay an additional year to collect the $3.25 million he’s scheduled to make in 2014. It is all but certain Orton will not remain on the team past this season.

By taken a chance on Weeden, Dallas could potentially find a mature back-up quarterback with starting experience for cheap. Or, at the very least, he could be trade bait for teams needing a quarterback into the regular season. Depending upon his play, Weeden could even make Orton expendable and trade-able into the season as well.

He won't sign with us, he's looking for way to much money. We were not even on his list of teams he wants to sign with.

Back by popular demand ....lol

Charean Williams and Calvin Watkins are reporting the Cowboys have signed the veteran DT... he started his first 4 years with the Texans, came off the bench the last 2 years in Chicago (behind Henry Melton)...

He's 6-2, 290, and ran a 4.88 at his Pro Day back in 2007 (when he was weighing in at 305 pounds)...

Cowboys are churning the roster, they are really trying to find some depth, instead of looking for guys on the couch later on.

They picked up a couple of other guys also, but again they might be just pissing in the wind

I think these are guys McClay has had his eye on, so the Cowboys are taking a look. The RB could easily beat out Randle if he stays healthy.

I'm not crazy about it, but at least we are bringing in NFL players coming back from injury, instead of drafting injured guys and hoping they get healthy.
