Cowboys Sign Wide Receiver

The Cowboys lost two of their wide receivers this year when they decided to cut veteran Roy Williams and then not resign 5-year man Sam Hurd. While most people assumed they would go for a veteran that can come in and provide some depth and even mentor some of the younger players, the Cowboys went a different direction. Tysson Poots, a rookie free-agent from Southern Utah became a Dallas Cowboy this morning.

Poots is a 6’2, 214 lb. wide out who will join fellow rookie Dwayne Harris in trying to make the team. Poots is a long shot and is likely just brought in to help in the depth department. He isn’t a burner, but Poots does have good hands. The experience itself will be a benefit for Poots’ career moving forward, and maybe he can impress enough to hang around on the practice squad.

    Tysson will surprise you. He has never let his coaches down. He is a fast learner and has great hands that catch anything that is close. I don’t think that he ever fumbled after a completion in his nearly 4,000 yard college career.

    That sounds great! Hopefully he can catch on quick and turn some heads! The bottom of the roster is always churning. Thanks for the insight!

    Check his stats….awesome player!

  4. Alex Weston says:

    he did have good stats but he played at a small independent school…hopefully he can make the jump!

    Tysson has great hands and knowa how to get open. And pionts he would make another good target for Tony.
