When I went to dallascowboys.com and saw the headlines “Completion Of Draft Shows Clear Ã¢â‚¬ËœRomo-FriendlyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Approach” I almost choked on my coffee. Who do they expect to believe this propaganda? The Dallas Cowboys only acquiredÃ‚Â one sub par offensive lineman in the draft. I assumed they would take the Jerry Jones “thrift store approach” and add some as undrafted rookie free agents. I should have known better.
Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, said the Dallas Cowboys plan to sign 15 to 20 undrafted free agents this year. Cowboys front office personnel got busy doing just that, immediately followingÃ‚Â the NFL draftÃ‚Â Saturday evening.
The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with at least 12 undrafted free agents, including two players who were among the 28 players they brought to Valley Ranch for pre-draft visits.Ã‚Â Safety Jakar Hamilton (South Carolina State) and Arizona State linebacker Brandon Magee were two of those signed.
Some of the other 10 undrafted free agents to agree to terms with the Dallas Cowboys are two local college players to include linebacker Taylor Reed (SMU) and Texas A&M cornerback Dustin Harris, two players from Coppell High School in Wisconsin cornerback Devin Smith and Akron quarterback Dalton Williams (a transfer from Stephen F. Austin) and one player from Rockwall-Heath in Missouri running back Kendial Lawrence.
Some other free agent rookies who have agreed to terms with the Cowboys include: Mississippi State linebacker Cameron Lawrence, Eastern Washington wide receiver Greg Herd, Virginia Paul Freedman, Saginaw Valley defensive back Jeff Heath and Cal Lutheran wide receiver Eric Rogers.

I get more and more confused with The Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry JonesÃ‚Â every day. Every expert in the country agreed that the Dallas Cowboys most important priority going in to this draft was protecting their investment, franchise quarterback Tony Romo. I am convinced that Jerry Jones is senile. Either that or he loves having Tony Romo be the fall guy for a team that has been .500 since 1996. He didn’t add a single offensive lineman so far among the undrafted rookies. The other glaring need was the defensive line, he didn’t add any of those either.
No matter what happens, he has the confidence of knowing that Romo will get the blame. Well sports fans, I hope you are not dumb enough to fall in to that trap. Tony Romo will never get a fair chance to earn the respect he deserves in the NFL if his incompetent owner, Jerry Jones, doesn’t give him the type of protection that his peers, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady get.
It’s obvious to me that Jason (Opie) Garrett has Jerry Jones convincedÃ‚Â that his offense is fine and all of the Dallas Cowboys problems are defense related (Rob Ryan was the Fall guy). Well, when Tony Romo goes down long-term and the offensive line get’s exposed for what it really is, with the non-mobile Kyle Orton, as the signal caller, remember I told you so.
