The latest on the Cowboys..
- Besides Felix Jones and Ben Tate, the Cowboys also worked out running back Daniel Thomas today, a source tells Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post (on Twitter). Thomas, a second-round pick in 2011, was a prominent part of the Dolphins’ backfield from 2011 through 2013. In 2014, he was squeezed out of the picture after the signing of Knowshon Moreno but he was re-signed by the club a couple of weeks into the season.
- Even with many factors working against him, there’s still a good chance that a team will bring Ray Rice in at the start of training camp and give him an opportunity to make the roster, John Clayton of ESPN.com writes. Clayton figures that there are five teams that make sense for the troubled tailback, including the Cowboys. Owner Jerry Jones appears to be content with starting the season with Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden in the backfield, but Clayton figures that Rice could be an option if something happens to either player.
- Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News ran down the reasons why the Cowboys would and wouldn’t be interested in signing Rice. Aside from the obvious, Rice is also rusty – he hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2013.
