Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was convicted Friday on misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in Decatur (AL).

McClain has been arrested in his hometown of Decatur three times since 2011. The Cowboys traded for him in early July, but he's squarely on the roster bubble.

Cowboys COO Stephen Jones promised the team will "run the ball more" this year.

"We will be running the ball more," Jerry's son vowed. "I think our offensive line is better than it was last year and I think we ran the ball pretty well last year. I think we’ll run it better this year and I think there will be a bigger commitment to running it." We're skeptical Dallas' defense will allow them to stick with the run, and new playcaller Scott Linehan has a decidedly pass-happy background. We do expect DeMarco Murray to set a career high in receptions.

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys and walk-year WR Dez Bryant have had "several" contract discussions, but are "not close" to a long-term agreement.

According to reporter Tim MacMahon, Bryant believes he's "earned the right to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league," but understands he'll likely have to wait. "I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of," Bryant said Thursday. Making $1.78 million in the final year of his rookie contract, Bryant is one of the biggest bargains in the league. The Cowboys' salary-cap disaster will surely make any long-term talks complex.

Cowboys placed DT Amobi Okoye (illness) on active/NFI.

Okoye is still battling an unknown issue that kept him out of the league last season. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2007 draft hasn't been a regular starter since 2010 while with the Texans.

Cowboys placed DE Anthony Spencer (knee) and LG Ronald Leary (hamstring) on active/PUP.

Spencer underwent microfracture surgery last October, but is still no lock for Week 1. This is one of the most serious procedures an athlete can undergo, and the rehab timetable can be up to 12 months. By placing Spencer on active/PUP, the Cowboys leave themselves the option of putting him on reserve/PUP to start this season. Leary strained his hamstring during a conditioning test.

Tony Romo (back surgery) is expected to be a full participant as training camp opens.

Romo has sustained no setbacks as he comes off a December procedure designed to relieve pressure on a herniated disc. "He has had no issues," coach Jason Garrett said. "No obstacles holding him back." Romo is getting ready for what could be his best statistical season under the guidance of passing-game guru Scott Linehan.

Cowboys DT Henry Melton (ACL surgery) is expected to be cleared for the beginning of camp.

According to reporter David Moore, the Cowboys aren't expecting any "red flags" with Melton's Wednesday physical. That was expected all along, but is still much-needed news for the Cowboys' undermanned defensive line. Melton is now 10 months removed from tearing his left ACL.

Cowboys LB Rolando McClain's trial for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct will begin Friday in Decatur, Ala.

McClain's attorney had attempted to have the proceedings delayed so McClain wouldn't have to miss time in training camp, but the judge refused. The case has already been delayed three times. Even with the Cowboys' defense in utter disarray, McClain is a long shot to crack the 53-man roster.

The Cowboys' official website expects second-round rookie Demarcus Lawrence to open the season as the starting right end.

Dallas traded up to No. 34 to grab Lawrence in May's draft in an effort to replace DeMarcus Ware. Lawrence will compete with veteran Jeremy Mincey, but should have no problem outperforming him. He has a chance to make an IDP impact right away under DC Rod Marinelli. George Selvie is penciled in at left end.

Cowboys signed WR Dezmon Briscoe.

The 2010 sixth-rounder hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2010. He'll be a camp body, one lucky to survive until final cuts.
Jul 21 - 3:54 PM

Cowboys signed TE Dallas Walker.

Walker has yet to appear in an NFL game since going undrafted out of Western Michigan in 2012. Team brass is reportedly comparing Walker's skill set to that of former Cowboys blocking TE Dan Campbell.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes Joseph Randle has the "inside track" on the Cowboys' No. 3 tailback job, and "would likely take over the every-down role" if DeMarco Murray missed time.

Six weeks ago, ESPN Dallas had Randle in danger of losing his roster spot. Archer's inference is that No. 2 back Lance Dunbar's role wouldn't change much if Murray got hurt, with Randle assuming lead-back work. It's notable, but we find it tough to believe. Randle struggled as a rookie (3.0 YPC) and didn't profile well into the NFL coming out of college. We think he's still on the roster bubble.

According to ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys are "unsure" about MLB Justin Durant's coverage ability.

This may be a nice way of saying they think Durant can't cover, though he did rate positively in Pro Football Focus' 2013 pass-coverage grades. Still, Dallas' Mike 'backer job is open to competition, and it's possible Durant will wind up as a two-down player. His IDP sleeper appeal hangs in the balance.

ESPN Dallas has Cowboys second-year CB B.W. Webb on the outside looking in at a 53-man roster spot.

Webb, the 114th pick in last year's draft, played 185 defensive snaps as a rookie, allowing 11-of-13 passes thrown at him to be completed for 131 yards and three touchdowns and a 148.2 passer rating. He then returned to have an underwhelming spring. Sterling Moore and seventh-round rookie CB Terrance Mitchell are ahead of Webb on the depth chart heading into camp. Webb was initially viewed as the heir apparent to slot corner Orlando Scandrick.

Cowboys DT Amobi Okoye (illness) is "recovering well and getting close."

Okoye remains hopeful he'll be cleared for camp, though he's still a candidate to begin on the active/PUP list. Okoye's undisclosed ailment kept him out for all of 2013. Any contributions the Cowboys' depleted defensive line gets from Okoye this season will be a bonus.
