Cowboys Sign Another Player Shortly After Draft

Reports are coming out that Dallas signed DE Marcus Dixon out of Hampton to a three-year, $1.1 mil contract.  The undrafted Dixon is listed at 6’4″, 294 lbs. and a gifted pass rusher.  His character and history are two different pictures, a before and after story that really isn’t too pleasant.  But several teams seemed to have felt the same as the Cowboys by expressing an interest in the young man and his apparent rise from the adversity of his youth.

Evidently Jerry Jones felt somewhat of a weakness at defensive line as opposed to the wide receiver position, where many thought the Cowboys were needful.   The last two players being DE’s along with the two CB’s and three offensive players, I would have to say it was basiclly a balanced plan going in to the draft.  With the draft and the last minute acquisition of Adam “Pacman” Jones, Dallas has made themselves the favorite to repeat as division winners in the NFC East.

  1. Gary W. Watts says:

    I hope he got a signing bonus to go with that salary. He sounds like he deserves it. In a good organization like the Dallas Cowboys he has a real good chance to become a premier player. All the luck and God’s Blessings to Jerry Jones and the Cowboy’s organization and
    Marcus Dixon.
