Roster Moves/Workouts

  • Shive changed the title to Roster Moves/Workouts

All of this is pretty meh....

 

Jefferson doesn't make a lot of sense to me, neither does Carter. Wonder if there's an injury or covid thingy going on we don't know about.

 

On Carter, below from the Cowboy's site

 

COLLEGE:

Had 66 tackles with 27 for losses, 12.0 sacks - tied for third in JMU single-season history - one forced fumble, 13 hurries and a pass breakup while starting all 16 games as a consensus first-team All-American senior.

Named first-team All-CAA as a junior after starting all 13 games and posted 58 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry.

Transferred to JMU as a sophomore and played in all 15 games to tally 28 tackles, eight for loss, 4.0 sacks, three pass breakups and four quarterback hurries.

Spent two seasons at Rutgers and appeared in five games in 2016, making two tackles, including a half tackle for loss and a half sack.

Redshirted as a true freshman in 2015.

 

PERSONAL:

Three-star recruit and top-30 player at Long Reach High School in Baltimore, Md., where he was a team captain who played defensive end and tight end.

First-team All-Howard County tight end as a senior and first-team defensive end as a junior.

Captain at the Maryland Crab Bowl, featuring most talented seniors from Maryland and was a member of the Baltimore Touchdown Club Super 22 Team as a junior.

Multi-sport athlete who also threw shot put for track & field and played basketball at Long Reach.

Majored in public policy and administration at James Madison.

Our dline is pretty good. Turay should be back after the bye. That makes no sense. If it was just a Ps addition I could understand but that is just strange. We have two players coming back from IR so just weird to add to the 53 with a DE.

So he is more of a DT. That makes even less sense. 

He's a tweener. But DT would make more sense than DE to be honest. We're a bit thin at 3T with Autry now starting at DE. You only have Buckner and Lewis at 3T. I don't know if he's any better than Kline though to jump to straight to the active roster.

We do have a DT that I bet gets cut. Can remember how to spell his name but he has been a healthy scratch.

Just a thought but when we signed Ankou didnt he have to be on the roster through 3 games, maybe Carter is taking his spot on the D Line....shot in the dark. 

This is the guy I was thinking of. I bet he gets cut.

He's a NT, not 3T, so very unrelated. He was going to be gone as soon as Day came back anyway.

Jefferson is a decent safety he would be a good depth for the defense we need it anyway

I like it. Never can have to much.

 

***1. We have 2-3 roster spots open. Im sure 1 of the 3(Burton,Ya-Sin, Day), wont be playing come Sunday either. Ya-Sin already holds a roster spot, so that leaves 2 guys for 3 spots open.

 

2. We grab him now keep him for 3 weeks then try and get him back to our practice squad. When Turay hopefully gets back.

 

***assuming we had 3 roster spots open, as I didnt recall filling our 2 IR hits last week. Then 1 more from Pittman. ****

 

When they didnt bring anyone in, I had a feeling they were going to try and snatch some practice squad guy, someone on the protected list.

 

Carter was protected all 3 weeks.

https://www.dallascowboys.com/news/updates-september-2020

 

The whole thing is a little weird though.. The verbiage in the tweet didnt make it sound like a tradition practice squad signing.(terminated)

 

Then the link above says he was released...?

 

"What is surprising is the way the practice squad opening came about. Rookie defensive end Ron'Dell Carter was released after being protected on the team's practice squad for the first three weeks of the season.

Carter was one of the biggest undrafted free agents in the Cowboys' 2020 draft class. They guaranteed him $145,000 to sign with them, topping offers from dozens of other teams. With the amount of veteran depth on the Cowboys' defensive line, reps were hard for him to come by during training camp. Carter is expected to sign with the Indianapolis Colts."

 

Maybe he doesn't even have to go to main 53? Pretty sure he is anyway.

 

https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/cowboys/2020/09/29/cowboys-lose-coveted-dt-prospect-rondell-carter-to-colts/

 

That article speaks very highly of him.

 

I had saw his name as I was looking over protected practice squad players over first few weeks. So Im lookimg forward to seeing what hes got.

Most definitely.

 

Have a good feeling about him. Dont even know why, but it's not my homerism... Lol

correct me if i'm wrong but i heard a rumor saying we were trading for AJ Green. Would be a good signing but i dont know if CB would actually go for the deal depending on what the Bengals would offer

where did you hear that?

Ron'Dell Carter is a highly coveted rookie according to the Bring the Juice Podcast. So I think we got someone very impressive here. I'll let you guys know if there's a podcast about him later on.

I'd change that to highly coveted UDFA :-)

Total project, but yes, very interesting. 

I remember a bit about him now from the draft. I need to do some more digging. I know small school, etc., but that's all I can recall.

Word around Dallas is that Carter is an absolute beast and they were very disappointed to see him go.

 

Had the highest guarantee of $145k.  I'm extremely excited about this acquisition.

Just shows me that Ballard looks to increase talent where ever he can find it. 

IMO it's a smart move.

I love that 24 teams wanted him before he joined the Cowboys originally, that means he was in high demand and usually that many FO's won't all be wrong. Him joining us now just shows we are a quality organization. A majority of bottom-feeder teams don't have a chance at guys like this. Glad we have Ballard and Reich to attract guys like this here.

Really happy about this signing. He didn't get national exposure due to the corona, and that probably kept him from being drafted since he was also from a small school. To get a guy like this for free that was in such high demand is a coup for Ballard right now, and although he went undrafted, there's a chance he could contribute this year.

    • You've seen Harris on 3 targets, in one game, and all targets were +/- 5 yards of the LOS (not route running). Is that really enough to be adamant that he should be on the 53?   You've seen Dulin and Fountain mostly as decoys or rubs/clear-outs, and only 3 targets each (which they've looked good). Is that really enough to be adamant they should be sent down to the PS? Add in Dulin is a heavy STs contributor.    Harris is very raw from a small school. The reason you saw him +/- 5 from the LOS is likely because he's not skilled at routes yet. You really think the 3 targets is enough that someone will grab him? He's been back on the PS since the end of the game Sunday, and I don't think anyone has grabbed him.   You're making a lot of hard assumptions off very little input. I get it, he looks quick. But he's just a predictable gadget guy until he can run a route tree, and that doesn't really check the boxes needed to take up a WR spot. Now if he does have a good grasp of routes, I'd be all for it. If they feel he can take Dulin's STs responsibilities too, I'd be all for it.  Just seems unlikely given where he's from, the covid limited camp, and little time on the PS. If somebody does offer him, I believe we can simply match.
    • I mean to defend Wentz have you seen the Talent he's working with it's laughable. He is trying to do to much, but if he wasn't playing hero ball I don't think they win a game. That's 6 Offensive Lineman, 1 starting RB, 2 TEs, 4 WRs   Miles Sanders RB Out Andre Dillard LT Out Brandon Brooks RG Out Jason Peters OT Out Jalen Reagor WR Out (Rookie) Isaac Seumalo G Out Zach Ertz TE Out Dallas Goedert TE Out Alshon Jeffery WR Out Desean Jackson WR Out Jordan Mailata OT Out Marquise Goodwin WR Out Jack Driscoll OT Out (Rookie)   And Just for Kicks Lane Johnson OT MCL Sprain Questionable
