  Cowboys | Jerry Jones loves Kyle Pitts    Fri Apr 9, 10:19 AM

Florida TE Kyle Pitts has Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' attention as Jones is infatuated with him. The Cowboys would consider moving up from the 10th overall pick to get him, according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Footballguys view: Pitts is one of the most exciting players in this class and he'd make the Cowboys offense even more high powered than it already is. He might be going off the board at no.4 overall so if Jones loves him he will likely have to move up to get him.

  Cowboys | Rough year for Ezekiel Elliott    Thu Apr 8, 10:34 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with career lows in rushing yards per game (65.3), yards per carry (4.0) and total touchdowns (eight) during the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Elliott's numbers should be better with Dak Prescott back under center. Without Prescott, defenses could just tee off on Elliott and the Cowboys ground game. Elliott has a current ADP of RB8 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Cowboys | Jeremy Sprinkle headed to Dallas    Wed Apr 7, 03:11 PM

Free-agent TE Jeremy Sprinkle (Washington) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, April 7. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jerry Jones loves his Arkansas Razorbacks (that's his alma mater). Sprinkle, a fifth-round pick out of Arkansas back in 2017 hasn't done much in the pros. In 2020, Sprinkle barely saw the field for Washington playing only 219 snaps and getting three targets that he turned into one catch for six yards. Staying in the NFC East and now with the Cowboys, Sprinkle will serve as a reserve behind Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz.

  Cowboys | Dallas anxious to get Dak Prescott signed    Tue Feb 23, 02:45 PM

Impending free-agent QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is reportedly making such good progress from his ankle injury and subsequent surgeries that the Dallas Cowboys want to get a 'big-time, long-term deal now,' according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys do not want to franchise tag Prescott again. Instead, it's past time to get a long-term deal done. Before his injury in 2020, Prescott was dealing the rock better than ever. He's a QB1 for Fantasy GMs and should get a contract that makes him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

  Cowboys | Amari Cooper could rework deal    Sun Feb 21, 04:30 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because the team could save around $14 million in salary cap space if they rework the deal.

Footballguys view: Cooper has undergone ankle surgery (back in January) but he'll be fine for training camp and will be the no.1 receiver for the Cowboys once again. He's on the books for $22 million and there is $28 million remaining in dead money. We'll see if the two sides work out a new deal that helps both parties involved. The Cowboys need to figure out a deal with QB Dak Prescott and have extra money for free agency.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott had additional surgery    Mon Feb 8, 01:35 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) had a second surgery on his ankle in December but it was not because of a setback in his recovery, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys and Prescott are going to keep working towards a new deal before free agency hits. They can slap him with the franchise tag again if need be, but that's a last resort. Expect a limited Prescott this offseason, but he should be ready to go by the start of training camp.

  Cowboys | Dallas hoping to sign Dak Prescott to long-term deal    Sun Feb 7, 10:33 AM

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to make a push to sign QB Dak Prescott to a contract extension prior to the deadline for applying the franchise tag March 9, according to multiple sources. If the two sides are unable to agree to terms on an extension, the team would tag Prescott for a second time at a cost of approximately $37.7 million, in order to prevent him from becoming a free agent.

Footballguys view: By tagging Prescott again, the two sides would have until mid-July to get a new contract done. However, putting a one-year price tag of $37.7 million is a risky move in case a new deal cannot be reached.
