Cowboys Worked Out 17 Players Yesterday, Sign None

The Cowboys took some time out of their Buccaneer preparation schedule to look towards the future on Thursday. Futures contracts to be exact. The team looked at a collection of players that have made their way onto Dallas' radar, but failed to sign any of the 17 candidates.

Interesting on the list is that the team worked out three fullbacks. This is one position that could definitely be perceived as a now-contingency need. The team struggles mightily in running the ball when Tony Fiammetta is unable to play. Although they finally diagnosed his problem as an inner ear one, TE John Phillips and seventh round pick FB Shaun Chapas have proven they are not suitable replacements to lead Felix Jones into the hole.

Here's a look at the complete list. Some even have NFL experience.


QB McLeod Bethel Thompson, Sacremento State

FB Harry Flaherty, Princeton

FB Jeff Link, Robert Morris

FB Renderick Taylor, Clemson

TE Dan Gronkowski, Maryland

WR Rod Harper, Murray State

WR ZaVious Robbins, Hardin-Simmons

WR Dominique Ziegler, Baylor

NT Travis Ivey, Maryland

NT Adrian Taylor, Oklahoma

LB Baraka Atkins, Miami

LB Brashton Satele, Hawaii

DB Kareem Moore, Nichols State

DB Kevin Payne, Louisiana-Monroe

DB Phillip Adams, South Carolina State

DB Donovan Warren, Michigan
