The Dallas cowboys have gone about their business of cutting the roster down to 53 players. You can see the resulting roster here, and see all the cuts made here. But that’s hardly the end of business for roster-building in the NFL. Now comes the part where teams scour all the cuts made by other teams to see who they may want to sign, they also can make decisions on any free agents still out there, plus, they have to create a 16-man practice squad.
The practice squad rules have been altered this year allowing teams 16 players, plus six of those can be players with an unlimited number of years accrued. That means they could keep a few veterans, or pick up a few from other teams that didn’t make final rosters. You can read about all of the new practice squad rules here.
We’ll be tracking all the practice squad signings here, so check back.
2020 Dallas Cowboys new signings & practice squad tracker: reports, rumors, and all of the latest
- The Cowboys are re-signing cornerback C.J. Goodwin (via Adam Schefter).
- Cowboys also expected to bring back Justin March (via Michael Gehlken).
- The only Cowboys player who was cut by the team to be claimed on waivers was defensive end Joe Jackson.
The only player whom the Cowboys waived in recent days to be claimed by another team was DE Joe Jackson. He's headed to Browns. All other cut players are eligible to return to Cowboys via their 16-man practice squad (plus a 17th spot for OT Isaac Alarcón as exemption).— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) September 6, 2020
- The Cowboys also claimed a player, wide receiver Malik Turner from the Packers (via Michael Gehlken).
- The Cowboys are looking to sign a couple of wide receivers to the practice squad.
Tevin Jones is coming backand Aaron Parker is a target. A second tweet states that Tevin Jones is not coming back.
Cowboys have begun assembling their practice squad. WR Tevin Jones is joining the unit, per agent @davidcanter. Dallas interested in WR Aaron Parker returning to the club as well. Ideally, both are practice squad-bound.— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) September 6, 2020

- And the big news for many, linebacker Francis Bernard will be returning to the PS (via Jori Epstein).
- The Cowboys made a roster move that might be surprising, but they have a plan for re-signing Joe Thomas.
The Cowboys wide receiver Malik Turner off waivers from the Green Bay Packers and released veteran Joe Thomas, who should be re-signed on Monday. Turner can play on all special teams’ units, which would help with the loss of Ventell Bryant to a knee injury.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) September 6, 2020
