NFL Network's Albert Breer believes Cowboys DE Greg Hardy's ten-game suspension will be reduced "by a significant number" on appeal.

Keep in mind this is the same league that suspended Ray Rice two games for knocking out his fiancee, and Tom Brady four games for allegedly-sorta deflating footballs. All bets are off regarding Hardy's ban. Hardy already missed 15 games on the Commissioner's Exempt List last season, which will work in the favor of his appeal. He's currently not slated to return until Week 12.

Cowboys signed third-round OT Chaz Green to a four-year contract.

An above-average athlete, Green is capable of playing all along the offensive line. Green has a ways to go in the run game. He'll begin his career as a deep reserve for Dallas' dominant paving crew.

Cowboys waived WR Chris Boyd.

Boyd loses his roster spot to newly signed A.J. Jenkins. Boyd, who went undrafted out of Vandy last year, is a developmental prospect that has a good chance to land on his feet. He's 6-foot-4 and flashed some NFL-caliber ability as a true freshman and sophomore in the SEC, compiling 81 catches for 1,247 yards (15.4 YPR) and 13 scores.

Cowboys WR Devin Street has been filling in as a starter during OTAs.

Dez Bryant hasn't been participating in the voluntary workouts. It's left Street on the outside opposite Terrance Williams, with Cole Beasley in the slot. Street is an underwhelming prospect who lacks physicality and long speed, but is a name to file away in case Bryant or Williams gets hurt in-season.

Cowboys signed WR A.J. Jenkins.

Jenkins is a familiar name because he's on his way to being one of the biggest busts in recent draft history. Since going 30th overall to the 49ers in 2012, he's caught a grand total of 17 passes and been cut by two teams. Jenkins is a flier for the Cowboys, who don't have much depth at outside receiver behind Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams.

The Dallas Morning News expects Lance Dunbar to compete with Ryan Williams for the No. 3 running back job.

Beat writer Brandon George doesn't see either of these backs as threats for the starting job. We'd disagree in the case of Williams (if he's actually healthy), but the undersized Dunbar profiles as the passing-down part of a committee. Joseph Randle enters the heart of OTA season with his nose in front of Darren McFadden for the initial first-team reps.
May 26 - 10:54 AM

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes Joseph Randle "will be the starting running back when the season opens."

Archer already went on the record earlier this month with a "bold prediction" that Randle will rush for 1,200 yards. Randle's talent doesn't lend itself to those kinds of stats, but the opportunity is very much there. Darren McFadden projects for his trademark ineffectiveness, Ryan Williams hasn't been the same since his patellar tear and Lance Dunbar is an undersized passing back. Randle, the incumbent who averaged 6.72 YPC on his 51 carries last year, appears to be the favorite to head this committee as we head into the bulk of the offseason program. The Dallas Morning News also stated Tuesday they expect Randle to get "the initial opportunity with the first-team offense."

Cowboys WLB Sean Lee (knee) has been cleared for OTAs.

A full year removed from ACL surgery, Lee hasn't had any setbacks and will practice without limitations. After missing 31 games the past three seasons, Dallas will attempt to keep Lee healthy by moving him to the weak side.

Cowboys signed CB Orlando Scandrick to a one-year, $9.5 million contract extension through 2019.

See, holding out does work sometimes. The total value of Scandrick's new five-year deal is worth $20 million. Scandrick skipped voluntary workouts earlier this offseason before reporting to the team this week. He was already under contract through 2018, but was scheduled to earn just $1.5 million this season and $3 million in each of 2016-2018. With Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne on the roster bubble, keeping Scandrick happy was a necessity for Dallas.

Cowboys signed second-round DE Randy Gregory to a four-year contract.

The Cowboys had quite a haul when the draft process was all said and done, coming away with arguably three first-round talents in CB Byron Jones (No. 27 overall), Gregory (No. 60), and G/T La'El Collins (UDFA). Talent-wise, Gregory may be the most-gifted edge rusher in the class. But thanks to off-field concerns, Gregory slipped into Day 2. He'll help rush the passer likely off the weak side.
May 20 - 1:44 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will report to team workouts Monday at Valley Ranch.

He's been holding out for a new contract and it looks like the two sides should have a new deal in place by the end of the week. Scandrick is likely headed for a big raise. The 28-year-old finished tenth out of 108 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' 2014 cornerback ratings.

Cowboys signed seventh-round TE Geoff Swaim to a four-year contract.

Swaim wasn't featured on offense during his two years at Texas, catching just 13 passes for 84 yards and one touchdown. He showed athletic upside at his Pro Day, running a 4.71 forty with a 10-foot-4 broad jump and 35 1/2-inch vertical. Swaim could be a practice squad candidate in Dallas, where he'll be developed behind Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar.
May 15 - 8:05 PM

Cowboys signed seventh-round OT Laurence Gibson to a four-year contract.

Gibson is an intriguing prospect with starting-caliber athleticism and size, but his roster chances in Dallas took a fairly significant blow when La'El Collins signed with the Cowboys after the draft. Ideally, the Cowboys would stash Gibson on their 2015 practice squad and bring him back to camp in 2016.
May 15 - 2:12 PM

The Dallas Morning News expects Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford to earn "a big pay day."

Crawford is entering the final year of his rookie deal and coming off a breakout 2014 season after seeing his 2013 campaign lost to a torn Achilles'. A 'tweener to begin his career, Crawford settled in as the Cowboys' starting three-technique and graded out as PFF's No. 13 defensive tackle. He racked up 45 combined sacks, hits, and hurries and should see an uptick in snaps this year.
May 15 - 10:12 AM

According to G/T La'El Collins' agent, the Rams were prepared to select Collins with one of their two seventh-round picks before ultimately passing on him.

"We were praying he didn’t get picked," agent Mike McCartney said. "There was a team that had drafted four offensive linemen," fellow agent Gene Smith added, "and they said, ‘We’re taking him.’ And I texted back, ‘You’re going to embarrass yourself. You’re going to waste this pick.’" The Rams foolishly passed and instead used their seventh-rounders on DE Martin Ifedi and LB Bryce Hager, two players who face long odds of making the 53-man roster or ever contributing in the NFL.
