Cowboys Practice Squad Set

The cuts are in and the initial 53 is all set for the Cowboys. Now, for the practice squad players.

TEs Martin Rucker and Scott Chandler (Giants)

WRs Manny Johnson and Jesse Holley

OL Travis Bright and OT Cliff Louis (Lions)

RB Lonyae Miller

CB Teddy Williams

Here is a review of which players are eligible for the eight-man practice squad.

Players must meet one of the following criteria while previously not being on a practice squad more than two seasons:

*No accrued seasons of NFL experience.
*Free agents who were on an active roster for fewer than nine regular-season games during their accrued seasons.
*A season on the practice squad constitutes three weeks. There are provisions for a third season on a practice squad.

With the Cowboys going with just three true corners on the roster in Terence Newman, Mike Jenkins, and Orlando Scandrick, you would think that they would load up on a couple of practice squad candidates at that position.

But UDFA Bryan McCann was claimed by Baltimore and 6th-round pick Jamar Wall by Houston. DE Marcus Dixon, who spent the last two seasons on Dallas' practice squad was claimed by the NY Jets.

Also of note, NT Junior Siavii found a new home in Seattle with the Seahawks.
