Cowboys agreed to terms with OGs Daniel Loper and Derrick Dockery.

Both journeyman were on Dallas' roster last year. The Cowboys won't want either to see action this season, but they were needed depth signings after several interior linemen went down in camp. Also, C Phil Costa has struggled.

Cowboys waived G Daniel Loper.

This is the fourth time since November 1 the Cowboys have waived Loper. He should be signed back to the practice squad as long as he clears waivers.

Cowboys waived G/T Daniel Loper.

Loper has been on and off the Cowboys' roster all season, but he's been a healthy scratch on game days. Perhaps he'll be re-signed for the NFL playoffs.

Cowboys re-signed OG Daniel Loper.

Loper has been roster yo-yo the past few weeks, cut twice to make room for P Chris Jones and S Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. He'll likely be the first to go the next time Dallas needs to add a player for a health reasons.

Cowboys waived G Daniel Loper.

Re-signed just two days ago, Loper has yet to appear in a game this season. He appeared in 10 games for the Raiders in 2010, starting four.
Sat, Nov 12, 2011 02:16:00 PM

Cowboys re-signed OG Daniel Loper.

Loper was let go last week to make room for an extra punter. Now P Mat McBriar is healthy and Loper is back as depth along the offensive line.
Thu, Nov 10, 2011 12:36:00 PM

Cowboys waived OG Daniel Loper.

He was waived to make room for P Chris Jones, who is needed because Mat McBriar is questionable with a foot injury. Loper, a replacement-level talent, could easily return to the Cowboys once they don't have to carry two punters.
Sat, Nov 5, 2011 07:20:00 PM

Cowboys signed OG Daniel Loper.

Loper was one of the Raiders' final cuts in September. He'll give the Cowboys another veteran option at guard in place of Bill Nagy, who is out for the season with a broken ankle.

Raiders released OG Daniel Loper.

Oakland signed Loper to a two-year, $4.2 million deal before the lockout but has apparently finally realized he just isn't very good, even for a backup. The Raiders also waived or released WR Shaun Bodiford, WR Shawn Bayes, TE Kevin Brock, WR Chad Jackson, WR Eddie McGee, P Glenn Pakulak, G Alex Parson, RB Louis Rankin, G Roy Schuenig and RB Manase Tonga.

Raiders re-signed OG Daniel Loper to a two-year, $4.2 million contract.

The deal includes $300K in bonuses and a first-year salary of $1.9 million. Loper, 29, started four games last year at left guard in place of an injured Rob Gallery. Loper performed poorly and typically has whenever given an opportunity, but he is currently considered the favorite to replace Gallery in 2011.

Raiders signed OL Daniel Loper, formerly of the Lions.

Loper, 28, has five starts in five career seasons. The fit in Oakland is somewhat odd because Loper has never played in a zone-blocking scheme like the Raiders'. He'll compete for a roster spot as a swing guard/tackle.
Fri, May 14, 2010 07:53:00 PM

Lions released OL Daniel Loper.

Loper just signed his non-guaranteed restricted free agent tender two weeks ago, but the Lions have since picked up Rob Sims to start at left guard. Loper failed to impress in his one season with the Lions after faring well as a backup in Tennessee. The Titans could look to bring him back.
Thu, Apr 15, 2010 02:55:00 PM

Lions re-signed restricted free agent OL Daniel Loper to a one-year, $1.226 million contract.

Loper, 28, flopped in five starts at left guard last year. The Lions are keeping him because Loper is versatile enough to also back up at right tackle.
