Breaking down the Vikings' 2019 schedule: Toughest games, key matchups, best road trips

For whatever it's worth in April — before the draft, and well before the commencement of injuries that inevitably alter the course of a NFL season — the Vikings' 2019 schedule is the league's eighth-toughest, in terms of the winning percentages their opponents had a year ago. That's a function of the league's schedule rotation, which has the entire NFC North playing all four teams from the AFC West this season. The Vikings and Packers, as part of that rotation, each have road games against the C...

Cowboys having “pretty active discussions” with Prescott, Cooper

Yeah, we're always open to looking at things,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday. Certainly if there are opportunities there that make sense, then we'll progress. I think pretty much everybody's on it pretty good that there's some pretty active discussions now with Dak and Amari, but it doesn't mean that some can't pick up in short order with other players that we have on our roster that we certainly want to keep here in...

Sean Payton on Dallas rumors: I've got fleur-de-lis tattoos

The rumors about Sean Payton eventually ending up in Dallas continue. Jason Garrett is in the final year of his contract with the Cowboys, who won't extend him before the season. Payton is a former Cowboys assistant coach who has a good relationship with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees is nearing the end of his career, which could mean a rebuild in New Orleans.

An Amari Cooper contract won't be hard to structure

With receiver Amari Cooper and quarterback Dak Prescott up next for new contracts with the Cowboys, one deal will be much easier to structure than the other, based on the structure utilized in the contract given to defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. Cooper already is due to make $13.924 million in 2019, and he'll be eligible for the franchise tag in 2020, an amount that will at least be $16.7 million, based on a 20-percent raise over Cooper's 2019 cap number. That's at least $30.624...

Darren Woodson: David Irving's claim about Jason Garrett is ridiculous

Former Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving, who is out of the NFL because of a drug suspension, said recently that coach Jason Garrett is awkward around black players. Darren Woodson, who has known Garrett much longer than Irving, says that's not the case. Woodson, who was a teammate of Garrett's on the Cowboys in the 1990s, said on 105.3 The Fan that Irving couldn't be more wrong.

Roger Staubach says Dak Prescott will “get a big contract”

Hall of Famer Roger Staubach, against whom all Cowboys quarterbacks are judged, said the most he ever made in a season was somewhere in the $230,000-$250,000 range. The NFL rookie minimum this season is $495,000, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a contract that averages $33.5 million a season, one of 17 quarterbacks who average at least $20 million a season. The Cowboys' current quarterback, Dak Prescott, remains on his rookie deal with his $680,848 average ranking 68th at the posi...

DE Randy Gregory, who is suspended again, gets extension from Cowboys

Cowboys get Randy Gregory for cheap in 2020 According to Pelissero, the Cowboys converted $310,000 of Gregory's 2019 salary into a signing bonus, and added another year for $735,000 with escalators possible. At least it's cheap. If the Cowboys looked at Gregory's latest suspension as a chance to add another season at a low rate, there's some business sense behind it.

Report: Cowboys haven't begun talks with Dak Prescott or Amari Cooper

The Cowboys have plenty of young, key players who are due for new contracts. Neither will be easy to sign, given the trail blazed by Kirk Cousins and Trumaine Johnson via the franchise tag. If the player resists signing a long-term deal and opts to collect two years of the franchise tag, the team may have no choice but to let the player hit the market in year three.

Cowboys plan to use Jason Witten wisely

The tight end averaged 65.5 snaps per game in 2017 when he played 98.4 percent of the team's offensive plays. But Witten turns 37 in May, has missed a year and the Cowboys have young tight ends they want to continue to develop. Thus, the Cowboys and Witten agreed he will play somewhere around 25 snaps a game.

The Phillies made a small change to their logo, but the Cowboys-looking result led to confusion and complaints on opening day

The Philadelphia Phillies made some subtle changes this season to their logo that left some wondering why a Philly team was suddenly aligning with the hated Dallas Cowboys. First, the changes: Here is the old Phillies logo on the left, which was introduced in 1992, and on the right is the new logo, via Chris Creamer's site. The big changes are the removal of the baseball-field background and the change of the bell color from white to blue. The color change is the important p...
