I don’t recall the consensus being that he was significantly over drafted, if at all. If he wasn’t a legit 2nd rounder he was at least a legit third or fourth rounder. And given our safety situation - really the only question mark on defense, maybe with DT (or more specifically NT) - I’d roll the dice on him looking for something.

Agin, who would I have to cut from the final roster to keep him? Kavon Frazier? Not really worried about that.

He's another spare part. If they sign him I'd have absolutely zero expectations from him.

Supposedly he wanted out because the Packers drafted a safety high. I think he may be a little sensitive. But still he is young, super athletic and has a good amount of NFL starts and plays under his belt. Obviously he would need to understand in Dallas he will have to earn the playing time.

They drafted a safety high and signed one from a divisional rival, in part because they found out this guy couldn't play a lick. Now they outright released him because apparently nobody wanted to trade for him despite being on a cheap rookie contract.

Pretty much says all anyone needs to know. I'm sure he'll get picked up, but expecting him to be a dependable starter would be incredibly foolish. He looks like a backup and special teamer at best.

The Colts would still own his rights. So if he were to play of anybody else, they'd have to release him, (yeah, right) or trade for him. If released, he'd be subjected to the waiver wire, and he'd be instantly claimed by the first team in line.

So, if Dallas had any hope of getting him, it would be by trade. What would you be willing to give up for a 31 year old QB with injury history that has had a two year layoff?

He has been very impressive. Funny thing is if we took him in the second round he would be are starting safety with that performance. But as a sixth rounder it just earns him a roster spot. I hope the coaches at least let him see the field once the season starts.

Pretty sad.

I get that there are numerous teams with kicker problems, but to just throw your hands up and say something like that is just insane.
Especially since no one viewed Maher as a legit NFL starter when we brought him in. So obviously there are guys out there capable of being a good NFL kicker. You just have to put the effort in to find one. Or shit, sign one after the draft like most teams.

Ah screw it, just sign that female soccer player and add to the circus.

I still don't understand why the NFL hasn't started poaching kickers from futbol. Surely there's a few dudes in the world who'd be capable of hitting a 50 yard FG consistently.

Has Connor McGovern started practicing yet?
7:16 p.m. - After missing nearly all of camp with a pectoral injury, McGovern returned to practice this week. But near the end of Tuesday’s practice, the rookie guard was still bothered by the injury.

He likely won’t play in the final preseason game on Thursday and could be headed to IR, with the chance to return after eight games.

I mean, kinda, but he was not gonna really contribute this year anyway. If injuries have to happen there could be way worse than this.

Yep, looks like a washout year for McGovern. That sux because I don't think he was ever hurt in college, then we get him and he's hurt.
Probably needed a year in our weight program anyway but I think long term he's a good prospect and fits our OL scheme well. He can also play C.

Yeah it would have been nice to at least have him as a backup guard/center to start the season. And everything Martin has been dealing with may have opened the door for the guy. Instead it's probably going to be a year of bulking up and hopefully he will come back bigger and stronger like Connor Williams did.

We might see guys like Daniel Ross, Daniel Wise and Rickey Walker flipped for either players or 7th rounders.
