The Cowboys had eight undrafted free agents on their roster starting games in 2014: Tony Romo, Barry Church, Ronald Leary, Jermey Parnell, Sterling Moore, Cole Beasley, Davon Coleman and Tyler Clutts all went undrafted and took a sometimes circuitous route to the NFL. Add special teamers Dan Bailey and Chris Jones, and the Cowboys have been quite successful in bringing in undrafted free agents over the years.
And one of the reasons for the Cowboys success with UDFAs is that Chris Hall, director of college scouting for the Cowboys and the guy with the long hair on the bottom right of the war room camera over the last three days, doesn’t allow scouts to "come off grade". If they have a grade on a guy before the draft, they have to stick with it after the draft. Which means that after the draft, they try and sign every guy still left on their draft board, as they feel those players effectively amount to extra draft picks.
And that's why we also make a point of tracking these UDFA signings. Full disclaimer here before you go any further, tracking and confirming actual signings of undrafted free agents can be tricky. The sources of these transactions come from all over, Twitter included, and sometimes they are not 100% reliable. Also, all reported deals are agreements, and players could back out of deals over next few days. Although this would be unusual for Cowboys agreements, it happens across the league every year.
So, with that in mind, below is a list of players who have been reported to have signed with your Dallas Cowboys.
