Cheap George Iloka Jersey

On first blush, it seems that things are going slow for Cowboys safety George Iloka, a veteran free-agent signee charged with the task of unseating Jeff Heath at strong safety.
Heath was second in the league with 22 broken tackles in 2018, according to Pro Football Outsiders. And he had 19 missed tackles, including 13 in the run game – a league-high for safeties, according to Pro Football Focus.

His tackling efficiency was second-worst in the league among those who played at least 535 defensive snaps, 63rd out of 64 eligible players, per PFF.

And this doesn’t even include the missed assignment by Heath in the NFC Divisional playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

So the Cowboys did a lot of homework in the off-season looking to upgrade the position.

They brought in Clayton Geathers and Eric Berry for visits in free agency before signing Iloka to a modest one-year deal for $930,000.

The Cowboys considered taking a safety in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft but opted for defensive tackle Trysten Hill. They eventually took Texas A&M’s Donovan Wilson in the sixth round.

Cheap Kasey Redfern Jersey

ADVERTISEMENT

Year after year the Dallas Cowboys try to do their best to create competition at every position, especially since Jason Garrett has taken over as head coach. Creating competition throughout the roster has actually become one of his coaching mantras, which is no surprise coming from a former backup quarterback. Believe it or not, this year could be more competitive than in years past.

The Dallas Cowboys current roster is pretty deep from top to bottom. It’s one of the more impressive groups of talent they’ve been able to put together in recent memory, which is why training camp and preseason games could be much more competitive. One position though that doesn’t typically receive a lot of competition is in the kicking game, whether it is at punter or kicker. That might not be the case this year if you believe Mickey Spagnolo, a columnist with the Dallas Cowboys.

Spagnolo suggests we could have another Brett Maher situation on our hands. You know, a “camp leg” brought in to provide some modest competition, but not really expected to be a serious contender. The new Maher this year could be Kasey Redfern, who is currently listed as a punter on the Dallas Cowboys roster.

Here’s what Spagnolo recently had to say about Kasey Redfern after the most recent practice open to the media:

“Always good to have some semblance of competition this time of year, and one reason why the Cowboys signed Kasey Redfern, listed as a punter. But Wednesday he showed he is a place-kicker, too. During special team drills, he drilled all five of his field-goal attempts and then, with the first and second teams participating in play-it-out sessions, the offense needing at least a field goal to tie the score in the final 1:24, the first-year kicker with two seconds left made his 38-yard attempt and then on a fourth-and-1 with no timeouts left with the second offense, nailed a 53-yarder. Guess we should pay attention since this time last year we basically ignored backup kicker Brett Maher, only for him to win the job over Dan Bailey”.

I don’t know about you, but I’m really intrigued by what Spagnolo said about Redfern. That’s because I really wanted to see the Dallas Cowboys bring in some serious competition to compete with both Chris Jones and Brett Maher this offseason. Neither player had a great 2018 season, which is why I was hoping for a kicking competition. Maybe, just maybe, Kasey Redfern is the answer.

So far in Redfern’s career he’s been mostly a journeyman punter. He spent time on several different rosters after finishing his career at Wofford College, where he handled both punting and kicking duties. He was even involved in a trade between the Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns. The Panthers traded Redfern and a 2018 fourth-round pick to the Browns for Punter Andy Lee and a 2017 seventh-round pick.

It wasn’t until he landed with the Detroit Lions that it looked like his career was finally starting to take off. He was named the starter after Sam Martin sustained an injury that would sideline him for several weeks, but unfortunately Redfern had a run of bad luck himself. He sustained a serious knee injury in the season opener, tearing his ACL, MCL, and a partially torn patellar tendon.

Now with the Dallas Cowboys, Kasey Redfern is hoping he has literally landed on his feet with the chance to finally show the NFL what he can do when given the opportunity. There’s no doubt it’ll be an uphill battle for him to outperform Chris Jones or Brett Maher, but he might just be somebody that Cowboys Nation wants to keep an eye on anyways.

Do you think Kasey Redfern can provide some serious kicking competition?

Cheap Shakir Soto Jersey

Former Pitt defensive lineman Shakir Soto signed with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. The 6’3”, 300-pound tackle most recently played for the San Diego Fleet of the Alliance of American Football but was displaced by the league’s abrupt closure.

During his time in the AAF, Soto stood out as a potential star in the making, as he accounted for 13 tackles, including four sacks and five tackles for losses, as well as six quarterback hits. As a result of his standout play, he was named to the Pro Football Focus AAF Team of the Week the same day the league folded.

Players were granted authorization to sign with NFL teams by the AAF last Thursday, and since then, more than two dozen have signed contracts and joined NFL teams.

Soto previously signed with the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders prior to his stint in the AAF. The Broncos signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2017, but he was cut during the preseason. The Raiders signed him to their practice squad later that year, but the team waived him in 2018.

With the Cowboys, Soto will look to build on his success with the Fleet and earn himself a roster spot by impressing the staff during organized team activities. The Cowboys’ OTAs get underway on May 21.

Cheap Donovan Wilson Jersey

It’s been a rather exciting offseason for the 2019 Dallas Cowboys. After making quite a few splashes in free agency and the trade market, Cowboys fans seemed to be much more excited heading into the NFL draft this offseason, more so than others.

If there’s one position Cowboys Nation still seems to be concerned about it’s the talent at the safety position outside of third-year safety Xavier Woods. With Jeff Heath slated to be the starting strong safety, many Cowboys fans are ready to see some new blood take over as the starter. Heath hasn’t been a bad player for the Cowboys, but there’s no denying that if there was one position that could be upgraded on the defensive side of the ball, strong safety would likely be at the top of the list.

After not signing Earl Thomas in free agency, and not looking to make a trade for any of the names floated around on the market, Cowboys fans are left wondering who on the current roster will be giving Jeff Heath competition in training camp and the preseason?

It may just be sixth-round pick, Donovan Wilson.

Wilson is the epitome of strong safety with his big hit ability, and cover abilities out of the slot. Wilson, while lacking ideal size, plays with tremendous effort, toughness, and leadership at the safety position, and is already started to turn some heads this offseason in OTA’s and minicamp.

Wilson’s pick to end practice was easily the play of the day for me.

The rookie darted from the numbers to the sideline after reading Rush’s throw. Dove at the sideline to come down with the INT, which the ref ruled a catch.

— David Helman (@HelmanDC) June 11, 2019
While Donovan Wilson is known more for his run-support abilities and enforcing skills in the middle of the field, continuing to make plays on the football while in coverage will force Jeff Heath to bring his “A” game this offseason. Wilson is coming for the starting strong safety job.

While it’s still early, and Wilson still has a long ways to go, splash plays like this should get fans excited for his ability to stick around the next four years, and potentially play a much more valuable role in the Dallas defense than many expected when he was drafted in the sixth round by the Dallas Cowboys.

Do you think Donovan Wilson could push Jeff Heath for the starting strong safety role?

Cheap Mitch Hyatt Jersey

Going undrafted is hardly a death blow to a player’s hopes of making it into the NFL. We’ve seen many examples of players who have lengthy careers despite humble beginnings, and plenty of them happened right here in Dallas. Could offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt be the next undrafted success story for the Cowboys?

Hyatt just finished his college career at Clemson as a four-year starter, two-time national champion, and two-time All-American. While not an elite draft prospect, many had Mitch rated as at least a 5th-7th round pick. His going undrafted was a surprise.

While he measures with good size at 6’5″ and a little over 300 lbs., Hyatt lacks upper body strength. But he’s overcome that deficiency through the years with work ethic, motor, and smarts.

For the Cowboys, it’s a lot easier to help a guy gain strength than it is to try and improve motivation or intelligence.

Dallas was not the only team interested in Mitch Hyatt once he hit free agency. But from the rookie’s own lips, he didn’t have a hard decision to make.

“’I received a fair amount of calls. It was a pretty chaotic five to 10 minutes for me,’” Hyatt said. “’I had a whole bunch of people in my ear. But I knew what kind of team the Cowboys were, I knew what they were about.’”

Whether it was the reputation of the Cowboys organization, its vaunted offensive line, or the chance to work with Coach Marc Colombo, Hyatt was clearly drawn to Dallas. Another reason for that may have been the perceived opportunity to make the roster.

The Cowboys seem to already be preparing for life without La’el Collins in 2020, when Collins is set to hit free agency. They gave Cam Fleming a two-year deal which keeps him through next year, plus drafted Connor McGovern in the third round of the 2019 draft. It suggests Dallas isn’t planning to pay La’l the significant money he should demand.

If Fleming gets promoted to the starting job at right tackle, that would leave a vacancy for swing tackle in 2020. Mitch Hyatt could be one of Dallas’ options for that role.

Even if the Cowboys don’t keep Hyatt on the 53-man roster in 2019, they will likely try to put him on the practice squad. Ideally, a year of physical development there will make him a much stronger candidate for the 2020 season.

Of course, the reason we know those undrafted success stories so well is because they aren’t typical. The odds are against Mitch Hyatt having any NFL career, but his collegiate success and intangibles speak to a guy who’s worth taking a chance on.

If it works out, credit the Cowboys for continuing the tradition of Tony Romo, Miles Austin, Jeff Heath, and other undrafted players who became significant contributors.

Cheap DeMarcus Ware Jersey

Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware was a featured panelist at a FedEx event at Colonial on Wednesday. BY MAC ENGEL
FORT WORTH
DeMarcus Ware had not seen the latest incident involving Ezekiel Elliott, but he didn’t have to to know the larger issue.

The former Dallas Cowboys linebacker said, “I would say it’s probably nothing, but the thing is, you hurt yourself no matter what. He is a big, recognizable person. He walks anywhere, (people say), ‘I know who that is. That’s Zeke.’”

Our favorite wild-haired, wild-child running back was recently handcuffed but not arrested after an incident in Las Vegas in the early morning hours on May 18. He allegedly pushed a security guard to the ground. TMZ, of course, had video of Zeke being handcuffed.

For a guy who has a handful of prior incidents, and was once suspended by the NFL for six games for violating the league’s rules on player conduct, the incident in Vegas is not a great look. And terrible timing.

Zeke is currently trying to negotiate for a new, monster contract, which the Cowboys will likely give him.

“He has to understand that anything (he) does, he is going to be under a microscope,” Ware said. “He’s going to be under a microscope and that’s just the way it is.”

Ware made an appearance at a promotional event with FedEx on Wednesday, during the Pro Am day at The Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial.

Ware believes the Dallas Cowboys can “get over the hump and make it to the Super Bowl this season,” he said.

He said that. Unlike some former Dallas Cowboys, Ware is not typically a Dallas Cowboys’ homer.

“They can make it,” he said. “It’s going to take all of them. It can’t be on (quarterback) Dak’s back. It’s be on Zeke’s back. It can’t be all on the defense. It has to be all of them.”

For a team that won the NFC East and reached the NFC Divisional round, predicting a Super Bowl appearance is plausible. While it cannot be all on one guy, Zeke is one of the best players on the team, and he is one of the top two running backs in the NFL.

“He’s a guy who is a workhorse, and a workhorse who also needs to be led. He needs to be led,” Ware said. “What I mean by that is, you tell him exactly what to do, he’s going to do it. And he’s going to do it better than anyone else. But you have to tell him exactly. A leader, like Dak, has to tell him, and commit with him.

“If there is a guy who gets up a 6 a.m. to workout with him, it doesn’t matter what he’s doing at night, he’s going to get up at six. He’s that kind of guy. He’s going to do it. He needs a partner.”

Although Zeke said last year that he wanted to take on more of leadership role within the locker room, Ware said he has to do more.

“He’s gotta start talking more,” he said. “(If I’m his teammate, I say) ‘You gotta be real with me in OTAs. You gotta be real with me in minicamp. You gotta be real with me in training camp. So when you tell me something, I know you are going to be there, and you are going to do it with me.”

Zeke will turn 24 in July, and despite his penchant for TMZ highlights, his NFL tape is so good the Cowboys are going to give him the big contract that he wants.

It would be nice for the Cowboys, however, if Zeke figures out what Ware is saying, and simply acknowledge the microscope he lives under.

Cheap Michael Irvin Jersey

FRISCO, Texas – Michael Irvin caught 750 passes for 11,904 receiving yards and 65 ­touchdowns in 12 years of regular-season play with the Dallas Cowboys.

Irvin compiled another 87 catches for 1,315 yards and eight touchdowns in the playoffs, helping the Cowboys to three Super Bowl titles in the 1990s.

And the Hall of Famer continues to interact with the league’s best receivers in more than a decade as an analyst for NFL Network.

Still, Irvin said Wednesday, he’d never heard from a receiver what Amari Cooper told him.

“One of the things we talked about is he said, ‘I don’t need 15-16 targets,’” Irvin said. “I’ve never heard a receiver say that. ‘I don’t need 15-16 targets a game, just give me my 8 or 9 and I’ll catch 7 or 8 passes.’

“It tells you he’s efficient. He’s efficient, and that’s a great thing.”

Cooper’s focus on efficiency over volume aligns with an offensive philosophy that favors the run game. The Cowboys invest heavily in Pro Bowl-caliber offensive linemen, and defending rushing titleholder Ezekiel Elliott’s 381 touches represented more than 35 percent of the team’s total offensive plays in 2018.

Cowboys coaches express interest in continuing that run-first mindset under first-year coordinator Kellen Moore. But the team acquired Cooper in October and in the offseason signed Randall Cobb in free agency. Joining them is Michael Gallup, who capped his rookie season with 18 yards and a touchdown in the wild-card win against Seattle and posted six catches for 119 yards in the divisional-round loss to the Rams. Irvin sees potential.

“I think they have a shot at being one of the top receiving corps in the NFL,” Irvin told the trio, and then reporters, after attending Cowboys practice Wednesday. “Michael Gallup came up great last year. If he can take another step? Randall Cobb stepping in and doing what he’s doing, and Amari Cooper just keep on stepping like he was stepping last year, this could be probably the best group of three guys in the NFL.”

One major difference Irvin identified between his days with Troy Aikman and the current receivers’ outlook with quarterback Dak Prescott: their understanding of scheme. Irvin was impressed by Cobb and Cooper’s discussion of passing and route concepts.

“Since I was just a pure receiver … I’m talking how can you get me the ball,” Irvin said. “No concepts. ‘You see this route over here? Throw it.’”
Irvin: Why questions of Dak’s deal ‘shouldn’t even be a discussion’
The Cowboys and Prescott’s representatives have exchanged initial offers for a contract extension. Prescott, whom Dallas drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 draft, has one year remaining on his rookie deal and hasn’t made more than $630,000 in base salary in a season prior to this year. He has started every game behind center the last three years, winning two NFC East titles.

In 2019, Prescott’s base salary jumps to $2.025 million. The Cowboys could place the franchise tag on him for 2020 if no extension is reached by next Febrary. But as the two sides negotiate, Irvin balks at some of the chatter.

“There’s no doubt in my mind Dak is the right guy,” Irvin said. “Look at these teams: I mean, people stop it. Look at these damn teams. Dolphins, Jaguars: They’ve been looking for a quarterback for almost 15-20 years. This ain’t easy to find. It’s not easy to find and you don’t let one walk out the door if you got one.”

Market value, Irvin said, has been set for quarterbacks. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, drafted No. 2 overall in 2016, signed a four-year extension last week worth $128 million. The Seahawks extended Russell Wilson, who claims six Pro Bowl berths and a Super Bowl title, this spring to a four-year, $140 million extension.

The money, like the salary cap, continues to grow. Irvin says that’s justified.

“When you have the heart and soul and leader of your team at the quarterback position, I don’t know why we’re talking about his money,” Irvin said. “That’s worth $15-20 million, by itself, a year. Now you got to pay him to play football also.

“I mean, let’s be real here. It shouldn’t even be a discussion when we talk about it, and the amount of wins this man has had, and the way he’s won football games. It shouldn’t even be a discussion. It really shouldn’t.”

Cheap Daryl Johnston Jersey

ARLINGTON — Daryl “Moose” Johnston would like to one day work in an NFL front office. The former Cowboys Pro Bowl fullback and three-time Super Bowl champion was named director of player personnel of Dallas’ XFL franchise last month.

Johnston was general manager of the San Antonio Commanders before the Alliance of American Football league ceased operations earlier this year.

Dallas XFL general manager and head coach Bob Stoops said he is looking to lean on Johnston as an assistant general manager.

“I like to be on the field coaching,” Stoops said. “I’ll pass off a lot of GM duties to him. He’s already doing a great job with us.”

After spending 11 seasons as one of the NFL’s top fullbacks, Johnston moved on to have a lengthy NFL broadcasting career.

Now he’s learning the ropes of working in a front office and being a talent evaluator. Johnston said one of the adjustments he’s had to make is the vocabulary he uses to sell a player to the coaching staff. Scouts use a different language than players and coaches.

He credits Cowboys vice president of player personnel Will McClay and director of pro scouting Alex Loomis with helping him improve in that area.
While most focus on the players participating in the XFL and how the new league could improve their chances of getting on an NFL roster, Johnston says the league provides similar opportunities for front office staff members like himself.

“If that opportunity ever presented itself, it would have to be a good situation,” Johnston said. “Hopefully I have to make that decision down the road. But right now, job No. 1 is to get a championship for Bob Stoops.”

Cheap Robert Newhouse Jersey

Here is a deeper look at six statistics from the Cowboys’ 24-22 wild-card victory over the Seahawks:

• 2 – Dak Prescott recorded a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown in the game, which marked the 14th time he’s posted both in a single outing. That tied Roger Staubach for the most in Cowboys history. However, this marked the first time a Dallas quarterback has ever had both a passing and rushing score in a playoff game. Overall, this was the 77th time in NFL record books that a quarterback has turned the trick, the first since Atlanta’s Matt Ryan did so in last season’s NFC Championship Game against Green Bay.

• 10 – Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch finished the game with a team-high 10 tackles, as credited by the league. That number could later change based on coaches’ film. But he’s the first Cowboys rookie since 1999 to reach double-digits in tackles in a playoff contest. In fact, he is only the 21st rookie in the NFL over the last two decades to reach the mark in a game, which also includes the Colt’s Darius Leonard, who recorded 13 tackles earlier in the day in Indianapolis’ win over Houston. Vander Esch already finished third overall in the NFL for tackles during the regular season, credited by the league with 140, which also broke a Cowboys rookie record.

• 72.7 – For all the criticism that the Cowboys have received for their red-zone offense this season, and rightfully so, they’ve actually fared quite well over their last three games, which were all wins. The team was 2-for-3 in the red zone against Tampa Bay in Week 16 before then going 3-for-4 at the Giants in Week 17 as well as vs. Seattle in the wild-card matchup. That’s a success rate of 72.7 percent. The Buccaneers, of course, had the worst red-zone defense in the league while New York was 12th. Seattle, though, ranked fourth. Dallas finished the regular season scoring touchdowns in the red zone only 48 percent of the time, which ranked 29th in the NFL.

• 169 – Ezekiel Elliott finished the game with 169 yards from scrimmage, picking up 137 on the ground and another 32 through the air. That mark was the sixth-highest total in Cowboys playoff history. He’s also the 91st player in NFL annals to record at least 169 yards from scrimmage in a playoff game and the first to do so since Tennessee’s Derrick Henry had 191 yards in a win over Kansas City in last season’s wild-card round. The 169 yards from scrimmage is also the 10th highest total for any game in Elliott’s career, and the fifth time this season he has topped at least 160 yards from scrimmage. He finished the regular season ranked second in the NFL with 2,001 yards from scrimmage, a career high.
• 73 – The Seahawks came into this wild-card matchup with the NFL’s top-ranked rushing offense, having led the league during the regular season with an average of 160 yards on the ground per game. They topped 100 yards rushing in all but three of their games, including in each of their final five contests. They also racked up 113 rushing yards in their Week 3 win over the Cowboys. But the Dallas defense shut down the Seahawks in this one, holding them to just 73 rushing yards as a team, Seattle’s second-lowest total of the season. The Cowboys had the fifth-best rushing defense in the NFL, holding opponents to under 100 yards 10 times. This marked the 32nd time in Cowboys playoff history that they have held a team to under 100 yards rushing. It’s also the lowest total since surrendering only 56 in a win over Philadelphia in the 2009 wild-card round.

• 106 – Joining in on the offensive fun was wide receiver Amari Cooper, who finished the game with 106 receiving yards. He became the 12th player (19th time) in Cowboys history to top the 100-yard mark in a postseason game, the first since Dez Bryant did so against Green Bay on Jan. 15, 2017). His total of 106 is the 15th highest in team playoff record books. Among that exclusive group his seven catches tied for the eighth most in a 100-yard effort. The 106 yards also marked the 16th career 100-yard game for Cooper, but his first in the playoffs.

Michael Gallup

· Michael Gallup became the sixth rookie in team history to catch a touchdown in a playoff game, and the first since John Phillips against Philadelphia on Jan. 9, 2010.

· Prescott threw one touchdown to break a tie with Don Meredith and tie Craig Morton (4) for the fifth-most touchdowns in franchise postseason history.

· Prescott had 22 completions to reach 46 in his postseason career to move past Meredith (39) for sixth on the club’s all-time postseason completions list.

· Prescott’s rushing touchdown allowed him to join Craig Morton (1969), Troy Aikman (1996) and Quincy Carter (2003) – all with one – as the fourth Cowboys quarterback to record a rushing score in a playoff game.
· Prescott’s 29 rushing yards were the seventh-most by any Dallas Cowboys quarterback during a postseason game in franchise history:

Dallas City Council approved two new major development projects in southern Dallas through the city’s Office of Economic Development: The first, a new Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) center for Georgia-based company Chime Solutions. The second, a substantial rehabilitation of the former Urban League of Greater Dallas building on South Lancaster Road for office and retail use.

Chime Solutions
Chime Solutions is a human resources and staffing firm headquartered in Morrow, Georgia. This new 51,000-square-foot BPO center — its first outside Georgia — will be located at Red Bird Mall.

By 2021, Chime anticipates creating over 1,000 full-time jobs at the new center. The range of jobs will include customer service agents, human resource specialists, desktop support specialists, trainers, operations managers, and a site director. Annual wages are expected to range from $29,000 to $80,000+ and all jobs will include a full benefits package.
This business development project is the first office incentive project located in southern Dallas in at least 20 years. Chime Solutions is a privately-owned and certified minority- and woman-owned business. The Dallas City Council approved an economic development grant of $2 million to facilitate this project.

Red Bird Mall, located in southern Dallas at US Highway 67 and Interstate Highway 20, is currently undergoing a $220 million redevelopment which will transform the mall into a mixed-use development, with new options for shopping, dining, entertainment, residential multifamily, office space, medical offices, and a hotel and conference center.

It also features the recently opened Dallas Entrepreneur Center (DEC) at Red Bird, which provides a variety of services for entrepreneurs and startups, as well as a new Starbucks.
Urban League of Greater Dallas building
The former Urban League of Greater Dallas building, located at 4315 South Lancaster Road, will undergo a substantial rehabilitation by E Smith Communities, a real estate company owned by former Dallas Cowboys star Emmitt Smith. Upon completion, the building will include workforce readiness, community wellness, and retail tenants.

The 29,686-square-foot building will build upon the success of the adjacent Lancaster Urban Village, a mixed-use redevelopment project completed in 2014, and is located across the street from the VA Medical Center and DART rail station.

The $4.4-million project will provide opportunity for local employment and services to the surrounding challenged residential market area with an anticipated 100 jobs to be created. The Dallas City Council approved an incentive to provide gap financing for the project in the form of a $750,000 grant.

In addition to these two projects, the City Council also approved a $500,000 grant to The Golden S.E.E.D.S. Foundation for neighborhood enhancements in The Bottom, a residential neighborhood south of the central business district, as well as the creation of the Southern Dallas Investment Fund, a $2,500,000 fund to support small businesses in southern Dallas.

“These projects attest to the City’s larger focus on southern Dallas,” says Mayor Mike Rawlings in a statement. “Through today’s actions, we will positively impact local residents by providing employment, retail, and wellness options in the heart of their communities.”
