Roster changes

Danny Coale - WR - Free Agent
Cowboys released WR Danny Coale from the practice squad.

Coale's fall in Dallas is complete. It's unusual for a fifth-round skill player to be completely cut loose after only one season, but Coale has been unable to stay healthy. His next NFL catch will be his first.

David Carter - DL - Cowboys
Cowboys signed DL David Carter.

DT Landon Cohen was waived in a corresponding roster move. A 2011 sixth-round pick of the Cardinals, Carter appeared in all 16 games last season, making four starts. Although he's just a depth signing, Carter should see snaps along the Cowboys' wafer thin defensive line

It appears Carter played in a 4-3 at UCLA then was drafted by the Cards to play 3-4 DE. He had potential to flourish in our defense because:

1) He is an explosive/athletic player (our defense is based on quick twitch, explosiveness, and get to the QB)
2) Good at getting in the backfield but not the type of player that eats up space (our defense is about rushing linemen not run stoppers that plug gaps)
3) His biggest weakness (improper use of hands) can easily be corrected with a great dline coach like Marinelli

Hopefully him and Jerome Long can serve as serviceable (AND YOUNG) backups to Hatcher and Ratliff/Hayden

I also said awhile ago, seems the Cowboys are going to cut players with health issues instead of waiting on them. I think that's a good move, to bad we can't cut Ratliff.

Looks like a smart move to me, plus Waters is supposed to be starting against the Rams.

Lets hope things start coming together, and the boys get rolling.

Nick Eatman: IRVING, Texas -  The Cowboys players have the day off on Tuesday but it’s always been a good day for the staff to evaluate free agents who could potentially help the club at the bottom of the roster.

The team brought in six players Tuesday for an early-morning workout, including three cornerbacks.

The Cowboys looked at Ryan Steed, Junior Mertile and Peyton Thompson in the workout. All three were in training camps this summer and released near the end of August.

The club also worked out defensive tackle David

Carter and wide receivers Jamar Newsome and Dwight Jones.

Newsome was recently cut by the Chiefs after spending last year on their practice squad. Jones was with the Texans last year but decided not to play last year for personal reasons.

Carter was a sixth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2011 but was cut on Aug. 30.

As for the cornerbacks, Steed (Steelers), Mertile (Giants) and Thompson (Falcons) were all waived in the final cuts.

The Cowboys have just four corners on the roster, including Morris Claiborne who didn’t start last week because of a shoulder injury that appeared to be re-injured in the Chiefs game. The Cowboys might be  looking for a fifth corner to add to the game-day roster this week.

Just churning the bottom of the roster.

Danny was the victim of Cole Beasley and Williams. Same guy but one plays and the other stays hurt.

BTW..Williams has been killing it in practice..I read he is so far ahead of Harris that it's night and day..

I'm having a hard time getting behind this Williams guy. I just think Beasley would be better right now just for moving the chains. But obviously they don't see it my way. Seems they have way to many guys who need to get the football. Can you spell over complicated.................?

Harris
The dude is showing he is more hungry than anyone by his performance on special teams. He was doing very well at the end of last season- and what do the great minds of the Dallas Cowboys do? Waste a draft pick on a WR that has basically started to phase Harris out of the offense. GREAT idea...

HARRIS is the guy that should be getting WR screens thrown to him in the red zone. Not Williams- Williams hasn't done **** yet to prove he should even be on the field. Get Harris the ball when we need yards- the guy is dangerous with the ball in his hands.

I personally don't think Miles is going anywhere after this year.(Everybody thinks Williams is here to replace Miles) He has a small cap hit next year and he finally looks healthy. Would be insane to get rid of him. It took Dez 3 yrs to get rolling, now is the time to win, stop trying to force the ball to Williams. Let him learn on the practice squad with Tanney.

We just don't need to be investing time in this guy right now. If we have an injury get him on the field.

They may see something in practice, but Harris has proved himself in real games.

I am just telling you what I read..and Harris is somewhat of a train wreck..

Personally I would like to see more double tight ends and less of Harris or Williams..

and..Miles in the slot is impossible to cover..

Don't get down on a rookie because he has shown nothing..only two games..good grief

I'm not down on him....we are stuck with him...I realize he's supposed to be the next whatever?

We could have used an O-Line or D-Line guy, we are loaded with WRers. Harris was STs player of the week already. Don't see at all how he is a train wreck. He did a great job at the end of the season for us last year.

We are wasting time with Escovar, and Williams, we gave away that last Fing game. Dallas can't afford to be wasting time with rookies right now. They need to rely on guys who can get the job done. Frederick so far is doing a good job, the rest, not so much!

Train Wreck??

Three coverage tackles and his efforts forcing one of the Giants’ six turnovers on Sunday night garnered Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for Week One.

The NFL announced Harris’ selection on Wednesday.

A third-year pro from East Carolina, Harris recorded two tackles on punts and another on a kickoff in the Cowboys’ 36-31 win vs. the Giants. However, his biggest play on special teams came in the third quarter, when he batted a Giants’ muffed punt away from New York cornerback Jayron Hosley and toward Cowboys linebacker DeVonte Holloman, who recovered on the Giants’ 16.

On the next play, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo connected with Harris on a 12-yard reception to set up 1st-and-goal at the New York four-yard line. From there, Romo hit tight end Jason Witten for a touchdown to give Dallas a 27-10 lead.

Though Harris played just four offensive snaps on Sunday night, Romo threw his way three times. He finished with two catches for 12 yards.

Overall, Harris played 22 special-teams snaps. In addition to the three tackles and his role in the fumble recovery, he returned two punts for 19 yards.
