Hilton's quick hit with Cowboys may be spark for larger role
T.Y. Hilton took his time before settling on Dallas in free agency after the receiver's 10-year run with Indianapolis ended. The game-altering grab in the fourth quarter with Dallas trailing by a touchdown could quicken the process of getting the speedy receiver acclimated with the Cowboys as the playoffs loom. “Coaches have been telling me since I signed here they were going to be taking it slow, be on a pitch count,” Hilton said.news.yahoo.com

Jerry Jones suggests wiggle room over Cowboys' anthem policy
Jerry Jones sidestepped the question of whether he would change his policy requiring Dallas Cowboys players to stand during the national anthem. Two years ago, Jones wouldn't even support players staying in the locker room during the national anthem, declaring the club's policy was for players to be on the sideline, toe on the line." I have nothing to prove as far as where Im standing with the flag and where the Cowboys stand. We have many on that team that were thinking about one way and many, many others that were thinking about another way, Jones said. Im going to show grace, Jones said.
Cowboys' Prescott has eye on present without long-term deal
Dak Prescott stuck with his virtual hiatus trying to get a long-term contract that never came during the offseason. Im not a guy that looks at my future to be honest, Prescott said Wednesday, two days before the first practice of training camp for the Cowboys. He was an almost instant star with the Cowboys, winning 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year as a fourth-round pick who replaced injured 10-year starter Tony Romo during his first preseason. The Cowboys made the hotel available to their players, and Prescott estimated 90% of them had essentially agreed to create their own bubble.

Clubs had until Wednesday afternoon to reach multiyear deals with players given the franchise tag. Green and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue of Jacksonville haven't signed the one-year contract that goes with the tag.

Anthony Harris of Minnesota and Denver's Justin Simmons are set to play under the $11.4 million tag for a safety.

Despite far more support, kneeling might not be widespread
(AP Photo/Mark Zaleski, File)NFL players who want to kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racism have far more support than Colin Kaepernick did four years ago. Lastly, some owners might still have an issue with it despite the leagues support of the players. Whatever our team ends up doing, were gonna support. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones strongly opposed kneeling when Kaepernick began the movement and he hasnt spoken on the issue. ... theyve all dealt with something at some point, whether its with the police or another interaction of just blatant racism, said Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

(AP Photo/Ron Jenkins)FRISCO, TX – With the future of coach Jason Garrett in limbo, the Dallas Cowboys have other reasons to believe there will be plenty of change in 2020 — 23 of them, to be exact. There was no word by late afternoon Monday from owner Jerry Jones on whether Garrett would return for a 10th full season. “In reflection, I'm very fortunate to have spent the time that I did with coach Garrett,” seven-year center Travis Frederick said Monday in a locker room dotted with large plastic bags holding players' belongings.

Jerry Jones tries everything, but Cowboys can't get it right
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) is chased by Chicago Bears' Aaron Lynch (99) during the second half of an NFL football game, Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019, in Chicago. (AP Photo/Morry Gash)Jerry Jones tried ripping the coaching staff of the Dallas Cowboys after the first loss in the current three-game skid, then took the gentle approach following the second. "Until we can win a football game, I don’t care what kind of contention we’re in," Jones said. The Cowboys (6—7) have never made the playoffs in a season with two losing streaks of at least three games. Despite seven losses in 10 games, Dallas will be no worse than tied with Philadelphia for the NFC East lead with three games remaining.
Cowboys build model by paying line, Pats win another way
Travis Frederick didn't fully understand the business of football when the Dallas Cowboys drafted their center six years ago and made him an instant starter. Two years ago, New England left tackle Nate Solder was perhaps the most-coveted left tackle in free agency, and the Patriots let him go at age 29 and two years removed from a torn biceps. Oakland coach Jon Gruden has stressed building the offensive line ever since returning to the Raiders before last season. "We thought it was really important as we continue to develop this offensive line." While left tackle has long been the highest-paid position because of protecting a QB's blind side, the value of guards has gone up in recent years.
