Cowboys | Team To Sign Murrell

Wed, 13 Aug 2003 09:41:25 -0700

Matt Mosley, of the Dallas Morning News, reports the Dallas Cowboys are finalizing a contract with free agent RB Adrian Murrell, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed Wednesday, August 13. Murrell is expected to be in uniform for Wednesday's afternoon practice. Jones said the Cowboys' interest in Murrell has more to do with the injury to RB Michael Wiley (rotator cuff) than a dis-satisfaction with Cowboys RB Troy Hambrick. Murrell, who has not played in two years, weighs 222 pounds. Jones says he would have to lose 7-8 pounds.

Cowboys | Youngsters To Step Up?

Sun, 18 Feb 2001 15:27:52 -0800

Jean-Jacques Taylor reports in the Sporting News several of the Dallas Cowboys younger players may be called upon to step up in 2001. FS Izell Reese will be given a chance to compete for the starting job. He filled in nicely for the last eight games last season, when he started because of George Teague's broken foot. RB Troy Hambrick will be given a chance to earn a spot as a backup RB on the team's final roster. Hambrick's chances will be tied into the Cowboys draft and free agent plans at RB. As previously reported, the team thinks RB Michael Wiley fits the role of third-down back better than full-time backup to Emmitt Smith. If the Cowboys don't re-sign free agent LB Dexter Coakley, Orantes Grant will get a chance to compete for the starting weakside linebacker job.

Cowboys | Team Notes

Sun, 04 Feb 2001 17:02:56 -0800

Jean-Jacques Taylor reports for the Sporting News without a solid RB behind Emmitt Smith, the Dallas Cowboys may look for a RB in the NFL Draft or free agency. The team does not feel Michael Wiley is durable enough to be an every down back if Smith was injured for an extended period of time. The Cowboys will probably send 6-8 players to NFL Europe, but none which would be considered "impact players" for 2001. The team faces key decisions on LB Dexter Coakley, an unrestricted free agent whom they would like to re-sign and OT Erik Williams who may be too expensive to keep. After last year's holdout, Williams did not endear himself to owner Jerry Jones.
