The Tackle From Nowhere

New, comments

Dallas may get another offensive tackle option this offseason, from a most unlikely of sources.

Sources tell the DMN. that 2004 draftee Jacob Rogers hopes to participate in the team's post-draft mini-camp this May.

Rogers missed his rookie season rehabbing a trick shoulder that had plagued him at USC. Last year he was on the first team two weeks into training camp when he was sidelined with knee swelling. Rogers upset team officials, most notably Jerry Jones, when he left camp to undergo microfracture surgery on his injured knee against the advice of team doctors.

Since Dallas struggled to get even adequate offensive tackle play last year, all may be forgiven. Rogers will count $855,000 against the Cowboys' salary cap whether he plays or not, so Dallas will apparently see if it can get a return on its money.
