It has been a busy day for the NFL, as teams continued to search for upgrades to their rosters. The Dallas Cowboys were no exception. Reports are that there are two players the Cowboys are planning to bring to the team.

More #Cowboys moves: Special teams ace CJ Spillman is on his way to Dallas, expect him to sign with them in the morning— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 31, 2014
According to reports, Crawford is going to be signed when DE DeMarcus Lawrence is placed on IR/designated to return on Tuesday. He played in 19 games for the Raiders, and was listed as their third team LDE prior to his release.
Spillman is known as a special teams ace, further bolstering OCC's theory about focusing on the special teams. Getting cut by the San Francisco 49ers probably had more to do with salary than talent, He will require the Cowboys to cut someone else. Also, expect him to get asked a lot of questions about his former team this week as Dallas prepares to host them in the season opener.
The C.J. Spillman signing is not good news for Ahmad Dixon, as the Cowboys won't keep six safeties.— Charean Williams (@NFLCharean) September 1, 2014
This is likely not the end of things. Feel free to jump in the comments thread to share your thoughts about the state of the roster to date.
