Berger Signs One-Year Deal With Cowboys

G Joe Berger signed a one-year, $927K contract yesterday to stay on the Cowboys roster.  He was originally drafted by Carolina in ’05 and spent a season in Miami before Dallas picked him up off waivers last year.  Listed at 6’5″ and 304 lbs. out of Michigan Tech, he spent most of last year on the inactive list, but shows promise in both special teams and line play. 

With the draft quickly approaching, lots of mock drafts and commentators are saying Dallas will go for WR DeSean Jackson from Cal with their 22nd pick in the first round.  I still hold it will be the best available CB/KR at that point, whether Leodis McKelvin or Michael Jenkins, but the only exception to this could be if RB Felix Jones is still on the board.

By the way, today is the final day for restricted free agents, such as Barber and Canty, to sign offer sheets with other teams.  If they do, the Cowboys will have a week to match any offers made or get a 1st and 3rd round pick for them.  Cross your fingers that they can keep both!
