LeBron James Says He Considered Making the Move to Playing for the Cowboys in 2011

It’s long been known that LeBron James, the 16-time NBA All-Star, three-time NBA champion and current Los Angeles Laker, grew up a Cowboys fan. Apparently, he once considered making the transition to Cowboys player, David Hellman of reports.

James appeared on “Uninterrupted” on Monday night to talk about the acclaimed Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” as well as his own memories of MJ. In addition, he talked about his history with football — as well as his flirtation with returning to the gridiron during the 2011 NFL lockout.

“I had no idea how long the lockout was going to be, and myself and my trainer … we really started to actually train to be a football player,” James said. “We started to clock our time in the 40, we started to add a little bit more to our bench presses and things of that nature.”

This wouldn’t have come out of nowhere. James played wide receiver in high school and was a first-team, all-state player. He was recruited by the likes of Notre Dame and Ohio State before ultimately deciding to focus on basketball.

And throughout this training process, James said that his trainer kept joking how great it would be to go down to Irving, Texas — the Cowboys’ former home, when they were located at Valley Ranch.

Of course, nothing ever came of it. The lockout ended during the summer of 2011. James, fresh off an NBA Finals loss to the Dallas Mavericks, would go on to win his first championship the following summer. Obviously, he’s still playing basketball to this day.

But James’ longtime friend and business partner, Maverick Carter, did acknowledge that Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones went as far as to send James a contract. He has it framed to this day.

Cowboys Add Free Agent CB Daryl Worley to Their Roster

The Cowboys have agreed to terms with veteran free-agent cornerback Daryl Worley, ESPN reports.

Worley joins a crowded cornerback room that includes Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Anthony Brown, Maurice Canady and C.J. Goodwin as well as the team’s recent draft picks, Trevon Diggs (second round) and Reggie Robinson (fourth round).

After the draft, the Cowboys, who lost Byron Jones to the Miami Dolphins in free agency, said they have some position flexibility with some corners being able to play safety.

Worley, who joined the Raiders as a free agent in 2018, became a Jon Gruden favorite last season thanks to his willingness to play all over the secondary, from outside corner to the slot to free safety.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Worley, 25, missed one game last season with a neck injury, in Week 15, and finished with an interception, a fumble recovery, 8 passes defensed and 58 tackles (51 solo).

Report: Cowboys and QB Prescott Having Good Chats About Long Term Deal

It’s unclear if Dak Prescott took part in the first day of the Cowboys virtual offseason, but the two sides have spoken in the last two weeks and a source described that session as “very positive,’’ David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The club placed the exclusive franchise tag on Prescott in March when the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term deal. Sources said that proposal exceeded the deal received by Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz in every respect. That means the quarterback would make more than $128 million in the first four seasons of the deal and his guarantee was north of $107.9 million.

The total worth of that proposal isn’t known, but sources said the five-year deal would make Prescott the NFL’s highest-paid player.

Prescott’s representatives prefer a four-year deal.

The Cowboys presented Prescott with a proposal that averaged $30 million and a guarantee of $90 million entering training camp, sources said, putting him among the top five players at the position at that time. In an effort to strike a deal before the regular season began, the club upped that offer to an average of $33 million with a guarantee of close to $105 million in September, sources said.

Prescott has not signed his franchise tag and is under no obligation to take part in the team’s offseason program that got underway Monday.

Jerry Jones to Be Consulted By President Trump About Re-Opening the Country

The country is still in limbo when it comes to sports and for almost all – when they can get back to a normal life that’s been put on hold due to the Coronavirus.

President Donald Trump has been active when it comes to letting people know that getting sports started again is very important to the country, and he said today that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is one of the people in sports that will be spoken to about re-opening the country/economy.

Cowboys Add Veteran Free Agent Defensive Tackle Dontari Poe

Another big name is set to join the Cowboys on their defensive line.

The Cowboys have come to terms with defensive tackle Dontari Poe, a source told Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News.

This comes after the team inked Gerald McCoy to a three-year deal in the $20 million range last week.

Watkins stated that the team and Poe have some things to work out in terms of details, which could include the fact that he had surgery for a torn quad last November.

The defensive linemen was scheduled to make $9.8 million in 2020 but the Panthers declined the team option sending him into the free agent market.

Poe is an eight-year veteran in the NFL, having spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and, most recently, the Carolina Panthers.

He’s appeared in 121 NFL games in his career and tallied 20.5 sacks to go along with 278 total tackles and 31 tackles for a loss.

Poe is a former first-round pick of the 2012 NFL draft when he went 11th overall to the Chiefs. Dallas traded up to select CB Morris Claiborne at No. 6 overall in that draft.

Cowboys Agree to Three-Year Extension with Tight End Blake Jarwin

The Dallas Cowboys did not take long to jump right into the free agent market, as Monday the club agreed on a huge deal with tight end Blake Jarwin.

Jarwin, according to, reports that it is a three-year extension worth up to $24.25 million, per sources informed of the deal. Jarwin gets $9.25 million guaranteed.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo were the ones that reported on the deal Monday, both stating that Jarwin gets three seasons with the Cowboys.

reported Monday that the Cowboys are signing tight end Blake Jarwin to a three-year extension worth up to $24.25 million, per sources informed of the deal. Jarwin gets $9.25 million guaranteed.

With Jason Witten’s future in Dallas up in the air, Dallas sought to pin down Jarwin, a restricted free agent. The Cowboys previously placed a second-round tender on the TE in advance of his new extension.

In three seasons in Dallas, Jarwin caught 58 passes for 672 yards and six TDs. The 25-year-old averaged 8.7 yards per target that past two seasons.

After his play-time increased last year, the new contract indicates he’s in line for an even bigger role with Mike McCarthy taking over as the Cowboys new coach.
