Extra Points: Decker, Bucs, Dolphins, Jets

The Cowboys‘ acquisition of Matt Cassel is more proof that Dallas is all in for 2015, Kevin Sherrington of The Dallas Morning News writes. In time, Sherrington wonders if Cassel will take the starting job away from Brandon Weeden, who is currently slated to start while Tony Romo heals up. Cassel has started 71 games, nearly four times Weeden’s total, and he might make more sense for a Cowboys team that is looking to win. Here’s more from around the NFL..

  • Jets coach Todd Bowles says that Eric Decker has a sprained knee and is day-to-day, as Brian Costello of the New York Post tweets. Decker left Monday night’s game in the fourth quarter after a Colts defender landed on him following an incompletion. The wide receiver had a tremendous showing against the Colts,¬†catching eight passes for 97 yards and a touchdown, all in the first half.
  • Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins suffered a strained shoulder and it’s expected to sideline him for 4-6 weeks, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The sophomore tight end will get a second opinion on the matter, he adds.
  • Former Giants tight end Adrien Robinson worked out for the Dolphins today, according to a source that spoke with Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald (on Twitter). Robinson was dropped by Big Blue on September 5th as the club trimmed down to a 53-man roster.
  • Former Ravens wide receiver Daniel Brown worked out for the Jets today, according to a league source who spoke with the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson (via Twitter). Brown was dropped by Baltimore on September 10th in favor of center Asa Jackson.
