Cowboys non-tendered exclusive rights free agent WR Jesse Holley.

The winner of Michael Irvin's 4th and Long reality show, Holley provided one of Dallas' big highlights last season with a 77-yard catch to beat the 49ers. He simply doesn't have the speed to be any more than a special teamer in the NFL.

Jesse Holley hauled in three passes for 96 yards including a 77-yard catch that set up the Cowboys' game winning field goal in overtime.

It was a Week 2 coming out party for the former winner of Michael Irvin's "4th and Long" reality show on Spike TV. He could be given an opportunity to pass Kevin Ogletree for the team's third wide receiver job, but he isn't worth an add in fantasy leagues.

Cowboys WR Jesse Holley will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn left meniscus.

Holley played in every game after being called up from the practice squad in mid-October, but he was limited to special teams duty. He returned one punt for two yards, failing to catch a single pass. Provided he's fully recovered, Holley will be in the mix for the fifth receiver job next summer.

Cowboys signed WR Jesse Holley from their practice squad.

Holley, who earned a spot on Dallas' practice squad last year after winning Michael Irvin's competition, will play special teams as long as he lasts.

Cowboys waived WR Jesse Holley, WR Manny Johnson, CB Teddy Williams, CB Jamar Wall, LB Brandon Sharpe, and OL Mike Tepper.

Holley lost out to Sam Hurd, who gambled and won when he refused to take a paycut. Williams was a world-class sprinter tried out at both receiver at corner.

Cowboys WR Jesse Holley has a legitimate shot to make the final roster over WR Sam Hurd.

Holley would make about $1.5M less than Hurd if he made the roster, and he has reportedly been a standout on special teams. It's safe to say that Hurd is in danger of losing his job.

Cowboys signed WR Jesse Holley, WR Manny Johnson, and DE Marcus Dixon to reserve/futures contracts.

Holley, winner of Michael Irvin's reality show 4th and Long, and Johnson will enter the offseason as the Cowboys' sixth and seventh receivers. Dixon has bulked up and will be in the mix for a roster spot this summer.

Cowboys signed WR Jesse Holley, OG Travis Bright, QB Rudy Carpenter, TE Scott Chandler, FB Julius Crosslin, DE Marcus Dixon, WR Manuel Johnson, and CB Mike Mickens to their practice squad.

Holley's 82-yard punt return touchdown wasn't enough for him to beat out undrafted rookie Kevin Oglesby to be Dallas' fifth receiver. Johnson and Mickens were draft picks this year. Mickens is essentially their fifth corner.
