Cowboys Players Getting Final Chance to Impress the Coaches

NFL Dallas

Dallas Cowboys players get a final opportunity to make a lasting impression. Let’s send things over to our insider Babe Laufenberg with the latest in our Silver Star Nation Report.

Babe Laufenberg: “Hello everyone, I’m Babe Laufenberg with this week’s Inside Slant. They say you don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression. But for a bunch of young Dallas Cowboys they will get a final opportunity to make a lasting impression. The roster was cut from 90 to 75 on Tuesday and that’ll have to be trimmed to 53 players by Saturday afternoon. That means a whole bunch of playing time for the young guys against the Houston Texans. And a whole bunch of anxiety.”

Dax Swanson/Cowboys Cornerback: “Definitely a lot of pressure. But I don’t try to think about it. I just try to go out there and play my game. You know…study my opponents and try to get a feel for what they do. And just be prepared.”  

Morris Claiborne/Cowboys Cornerback: “Previous game we played, once the starters get out and the younger guys go in it’s like we’re still in the game. It’s fun to see those guys out there competing for a job and giving it all they got.”

Babe Laufenberg: “You can file the final cut down day under the heading no news is good news. Safety Jeff Heath who made the roster as a rookie free agent out of Saginaw Valley State in 2013 said they don’t call you if you make the team, they only call you if you don’t. With this week’s Inside Slant at The Star, I’m Babe Laufenberg.”
