Contradicting his public statement, Terrance Williams told police that Kendall Wright, whom Williams played with at Baylor, was the driver for his weekend car accident, and that Williams was not in the car.

Williams' initial comments to police basically contradicted everything he ended up saying in his public statement on Sunday. Whatever happened, Wright does not currently appear to be in any sort of trouble with the law. Williams is facing charges of public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident. His entire story can be found at the link below.

Dak Prescott said Tavon Austin will be used all over the formation with the Cowboys.

"Coaches have a great plan, whether it's getting him out of the backfield, lining him up at X, lining him up at Z, putting him in the slot," Prescott said. "He's a guy we get the ball in his hands, he'll score some points and get a bunch of yards in this offense." Earlier this month, EVP Stephen Jones said Austin is a "web back" who they want to get "a dozen to two dozen" touches per game. Consider us skeptical, but the Cowboys are shoveling as much coal into the hype train as possible.

Anthony Brown is working as the Cowboys' first-team slot corner at OTAs.

Brown got burnt to a crisp as a perimeter cornerback last year -- he allowed the most touchdown passes in the league -- but he fared well when subbing for oft-injured slot CB Orlando Scandrick. With Scandrick gone to Washington, Brown should be locked in as Dallas' slot corner. At early OTAs, the Cowboys are utilizing Chidobe Awuzie and Byron Jones as their starting boundary cover men.

Cowboys contract-year RG Zack Martin is not participating in OTAs.

Martin has been working out with the team in the gym, but he won't do football-related drills as he and the Cowboys try to hammer out a long-term deal. After what happened to Hunter Henry and Paul Worrilow on Tuesday, it's impossible to blame players for sitting out voluntary workouts before they have some financial security. Martin will likely become the highest-paid guard.

Cowboys signed third-round WR Michael Gallup to a four-year contract.

Dallas now has their entire draft class under contract. Especially following Terrance Williams' arrest over the weekend, the Cowboys are desperate for help at receiver. That should allow Gallup to contribute right out of the gate, and he is talented enough to be a long-term factor in Dallas. Gallup is a great value in the second round of Dynasty rookie drafts.

Terrance Williams released a statement following his arrest Saturday in Frisco, Texas.

Williams was charged with public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident, both misdemeanors. The Cowboys receiver said he hopped the curb to avoid a collision after the car in front of him slammed on his brakes. After exchanging insurance information with the other driver, Williams said he was dropped off at home by a neighbor and immediately called a tow truck to collect his vehicle. Williams was on his way to meet the tow-truck driver when police stopped him on his scooter. According to Williams, no sobriety tests were administered. Williams' agent, Chip Lewis, released his own statement, disputing a claim that Williams struck a light pole with his Lamborghini. "We are confident that once all the facts are brought to light in court Terrance will be vindicated," said Lewis. Coming off another underwhelming season in 2017, this arrest could put Williams' roster spot in jeopardy.

Terrance Williams was arrested in Frisco, Texas early Saturday morning on charges of public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident.

Both charges are misdemeanors. According to police, Williams crashed his Lamborghini into a light pole at 3 AM and fled the scene. He was arrested when police found him riding an electric bicycle near his home about two hours later. Williams has since been released on a $369 bond. The 28-year-old caught 53 passes for 568 yards and no touchdowns for Dallas in 2017.

Suspended DE Randy Gregory will apply for reinstatement on Thursday.

The No. 60 overall pick in 2015, Gregory recently wrapped up six weeks in intensive drug and alcohol rehab and counseling, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's appeared in just 14 career games and missed all of last season while banned. Gregory would be a boost to Dallas' pass rush.

Cowboys OC Scott Linehan expects Tavon Austin to get most of his snaps at receiver.

"We’ll use him for a lot of things, but he’s a receiver first," said Linehan. "Some of his skill set is as an outside receiver, but he can move around." This throws shade on reports the Cowboys plan to use Austin in a Lance Dunbar role. Austin should see an uptick from the last year's 81 touches, but remains unlikely to make a fantasy impact.
May 12 - 4:09 PM

Cowboys signed seventh round RB Bo Scarbrough to a four-year contract.

Scarbrough didn't live up to his five-star hype at Alabama, but has the talent to outproduce his late round status. He lands in a good spot in Dallas, where he'll have a chance to be the early-down backup for Ezekiel Elliott. Third round WR Michael Gallup is the Cowboys' only unsigned pick.
May 11 - 7:32 PM

Cowboys signed fourth round TE Dalton Schultz to a four-year contract.

Schultz was drafted as part of the Cowboys' committee to replace Jason Witten. He has the blocking skills to be a Week 1 starter and is capable in the pass game. Schultz will compete for snaps with Rico Gathers, Geoff Swaim, and Blake Jarwin.
May 11 - 7:00 PM

Cowboys signed No. 19 overall pick LB Leighton Vander Esch to a four-year, $11.8 million contract.

His deal comes with a $6.7 million signing bonus as well as a fifth-year team option for 2022. The Cowboys have now signed all of their draft picks except for third-rounder Michael Gallup. Vander Esch is the favorite to start at strong side linebacker for Dallas in 2018.
May 11 - 4:56 PM

Cowboys DT Maliek Collins will undergo surgery on his broken left foot.

He suffered the injury at Thursday's OTA session. Collins has yet to receive a firm timeline, though NFL Network's James Palmer was told by one source that he could miss up to three months. His injury could influence the Cowboys to sign Terrell McClain, who visited the team earlier this week.
May 11 - 4:20 PM

Cowboys third-year TE Rico Gathers is recovered from his 2017 concussion.

Gathers missed the entirety of last season after suffering a summer concussion coupled with jaw and neck injuries. The 2016 sixth-round project has yet to appear in a regular-season game but flashed big-time potential last preseason to the tune of a 7-106-2 line in two exhibitions. He has some Martellus Bennett to him. Gathers is in the mix to replace retired Jason Witten in an offense desperate for playmakers in the passing game. He's worth a flier in best-ball leagues.
May 11 - 11:41 AM

Cowboys DT Maliek Collins suffered a broken left foot in Thursday's OTAs session.

It's terrible news, as Collins had surgery on the same foot in January. A 16-game starter last year, Collins is looking shaky for Week 1, though the team is reportedly optimistic he will be ready sometime in August. There's likely now an added sense of urgency for the Cowboys to get free agent Terrell McClain under contract.
