Mickey Spags is producing some good stuff lately, including this article. He's got the goods on who we play in the preseason.
Then the Cowboys will play the final two games at home, facing San Francisco and Minnesota at Texas Stadium. The Cowboys have last played Minnesota in a preseason game in 1994 and San Francisco in 1987 when they still were training in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
There's other good stuff in the article but this was the most interesting piece.
Jones said the Cowboys did sign Vanderjagt with the idea of possibly having to also hire a kick-off guy. But the Cowboys owner did say Vanderjagt thinks he can handle the kick offs, and that the club will monitor his progress before making a decision to find a young, inexpensive kick-off guy. Vanderjagt last kicked off fulltime during the 2003 season.
"The decision was made (to sign Vanderjagt) with the idea of having a specialist kicking off," Jones said. "We hope to train a young guy. Now I don't have my man around, Steve (Hoffman, the team's former kicking coach) around, but he may be around one day again, and that's not tampering."
"Steve was the one who advised me this was not the year to have a young kicker."
So Hoffman might be coming back. Why? Well check out this article from NFL.com from last summer.
So who's going to pay Hoffman's bill, Jerry or Vanderjagt?
