Cowboys workout a QB

Well, well, there is some life out at Valley Ranch. Here I thought they were all sitting around playing marathon games of Texas Hold `Em and drinking margaritas. But nope, they're actually working. Like today, when they worked out three players. From Mickey Spags:

The most prominent name among the three belonged to Brock Berlin, once the nation's top high school recruit from Shreveport (La.) Evangel Christian Academy who went on to play quarterback at the University of Florida before transferring to the University of Miami. Berlin, signed by Miami as a non-drafted rookie free agent in 2005, went to training camp with the Dolphins the past two summers but never made a roster or a practice squad.

The other two guys joining him on the team's practice field on Tuesday were former Washington offensive lineman Jim Molinaro, a three-year NFL veteran the Redskins decided against issuing even a minimum restricted free agency tender ($850,000), and intriguing wide receiver Jamel Richardson, who spent the past three seasons playing for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL.

Mick has more on each of the guys but the main points are that Brock Berlin supposedly had a good workout and knows Jason Garrett from their days in Miami. The Cowboys will probably take 4 QB's to training camp, and there's still the possibility of drafting one.

More on the Cowboys memorial service for Crazy Ray.

"Mattie [Rays' wife] is overwhelmed," Mr. Walker said. "With Jerry Jones and the Cowboys there, it will be a very special time for her."

Mr. Dalrymple said the team owner will speak at the memorial, which will begin at 10 a.m. in the Stadium Club.

Because the club can hold only 300 to 400 people, an overflow of attendees will be seated in the stadium to watch the memorial on monitors.

Mr. Dalrymple said the team has no idea how many people might come to honor the entertainer and Cowboys fan, though scheduling the memorial on the weekend should allow more people to attend from out of town.

JJT does some Q&A and discusses the offseason workout program without Bill Parcells hovering over the players in the weight room.
