Second-round pick Martellus Bennett has come to terms on a four-year deal with the Cowboys Thursday morning, just a few hours before the team flies to California.
Roster spot: He needs to be a factor because the coaches want to be able to move Jason Witten around more. Bennett admitted the playbook is more involved than it was at A&M and he needed to be in better condition. The coaches, however, see his willingness to work and learn. If he can't become the No. 2 tight end, then that job goes to Tony Curtis
I suspect Bennett's getting his boarding pass for the plane as we speak. I dont see Bennett being a big contributor this year as he seems to need alot of work, having trouble understanding the playbook, not in the best of shape. I really still think Dallas should of used their second round pick on a receiver than a tightend. I think Tony Curtis will be the number two tightend on the roster this year. Dont count out Rodney Hannah, I really like what this kid has done in the past year on the practice sqaud and think he's going to surprise some people in camp.
All thats left is the signing of our two first round picks, who both are represented by the same agent, Eugene Parker. I expect both will get signed either later today or early tomorrow morning.
The Terry Glenn saga looks like it will come to end one way or another sometime today.
Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn is not on the team plane headed here to training camp.
Glenn, who played in one regular-season game last year, is in a dispute with the team over a split salary agreement. The team wants Glenn to sign a $500,000 wavier in case he reinjures his right knee. Glenn is refusing to do so.
Glenn, who declined comment, could still report to training camp today or Friday in time for the first practice.
The Cowboys released OLB Khari Long, a Baylor-ex who spent some of last season on the practice squad
Khari Long became the first camp casualty, that leaves 79 roster players, 1 spot has been freed up, is something in the works to fill that spot
THANK GOD FOOTBALL IS BACK!!!!!!!
