The Dallas Cowboys brought in running back Gus Johnson from Stephen F. Austin for a mini camp tryout. Johnson, was the 2014 Southland Conference Player of the Year at SFA. Johnson an East Texas native (Gilmer) was also a four-time All-American selection.
Draft Profile (via NFL.com)
Well-built with thick bubble and powerful legs. Shows necessary power to rip through arm tackles and churn out additional yardage after contact. Has delayed burst once he gets to second level. Bow-legged runner with wide base and adequate balance through contact. What he lacks in explosiveness he makes up for in grit. Produced at consistent level over last three seasons.
Hip tightness is a concern. Unable to take wide track on outside zone and then one-cut sharply without noticeable gear grind. Lacks foot quickness for sudden, lateral cuts to make defenders miss.
Doesn’t seek out opportunities to send a message with aggressive acceleration into tackler. Play speed to perimeter inconsistent. Marginal production as pass-catcher. Very little ability to protect the passer.
Career Stats and Awards
- Three-time All-Southland Conference selection.
- SFA’s all-time leading rusher with 3,907 yards.
- Southland Conference Player of the Year in 2014.

Dallas Cowboys wide out Dez Bryant’s agent Tom Condon talks his client’s contract negotiation with the Dallas Cowboys organization. Dez Bryant came out earlier in the week claiming he is prepared to sit out games until the two sides come to an long-term agreement.
As we approach the July 15th deadline to get a deal done for arguably the best receiver in the NFL , Cowboys Nation officially needs to take a chill pill. There are many fans out there that are freaking out that Dez will hold out and miss 1-10 games to prove a point about his contract situation.
This will not happen. Everyone take a deep breath and remember that this is part of the business.
The first side to pick up the phone to talk, loses money.
Dez is looking for the “big deal” probably around the $15 million – $16 million a year deal, where the Cowboys sit at around 10-11 million looking at other receivers in the league. Right now he is set to make 14 million with the tag. Eventually they will meet in the middle, likely at 14$ million a year, 40$million signing bonus.
This is all about testing the market and waiting for someone else to make a move on their main receivers in the league, no one wants to move first and other receivers are holding out as well, we just don’t hear about them.. only Dez, simply because he is the best and is granted the most attention being on Americas team and all.
Everyone chill out! The deal will get done, the NFL is built around not giving into big players, they lose money by doing that and Dez will not want to miss out on $800,000 paychecks for 10 straight weeks, let alone one. The Cowboys have done this before (D. Ware) and they know how this works, TRUST this front office! I have said this so many times over the course of the last two years and they have yet to let me down.. or you for that matter.
Likely we will all be waiting around until July 14th for this to get done, so put your patience pants on and enjoy the ride.
Until then , we wait for the Greg Hardy appeal results, which the NFL seems to be taking their sweet time with to wait until the last-minute. Typically a decision is made by the two-week mark which would have been 6/11/15 , we are almost three weeks in at this point.
Oh.. on a side note, where are all those folks who were hating on the Cowboys signing Greg Hardy that are now ALL OVER Hope Solo saying things like “She must play!!”, weird.. you know she bashed her nephews head into concrete and assaulted his mother as well, right? But of course, she is a female and plays for the national USA women’s soccer team.. so it’s okay, right?
Weird how that works… Well I’ll say this to you since you said it to the Cowboys, if you support Hope Solo then you support Domestic Violence. Don’t get me wrong, I am ALL FOR the USA women’s soccer team , but if you’re gonna say one thing, then apply it to another. Rachel Nichols… Dale Hansen.. and all you other hypocrites out there.
Meanwhile… the Eagles have officially converted DeMarco Murray into a true Eagles player as he makes his ridiculous remarks about the offensive line, firing shots to the Cowboys already.
DeMarco has no idea what to expect with that Eagles offensive line already falling apart and he will get a nice load with a Quarterback that doesn’t even have a healthy bone in his body. If there is one thing the NFL teaches people it’s that injury prone players are just that injury prone and their all mighty Chip Kelly continues to ignore that, so we will see how this season goes. Yet NFL analyst continue to rank the Eagles in the top 10, and the Cowboys outside that. But the Cowboys showed them last year ( ranked 22 pre season) and they will do it again this year.
But hey Dez still caught it, and the Eagles still suck.
Those are my current thoughts..
Take it, leave it, or throw it back at me.
Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer Charlotte Jones Anderson announced via her Twitter account the updated completion date for the new Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters known as “The Star” in Frisco, Texas.
The Dallas Cowboys made a couple of roster moves today by signing running back Baylor University standout Lache Seastrunk. Seastrunk was drafted by NFC East rival the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
To make room for Seastrunk the Cowboys released undrafted running back Synjyn Days.

Is there anything that Dallas Cowboys’ receiver @DezBryant can’t do? The talented receiver was at the Jordan terminal 23 raining one-handed half court shots.
Dez Bryant’s Instagram’s
The NFL canceled the National Fantasy Football Convention headed by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Tony broke the news to his fans via his Twitter account.
Romo’s teammate Dez Bryant wasn’t to pleased with the NFL’s decision to pull the plug on the convention and had this to say via his Twitter account.
A man who fans probably do not have the right amount of respect for is Brandon Carr. At the end of the 2014/2015 season he started playing lights out. No, he has not played to the level of the salary he has made, but he has been solid over the past few years we’ve had him and gets way too much heat than he deserves.
In fact, Carr leads the Cowboys defense in snaps played for 3 straight years. His 3,219 snaps is 877 more than the next guy. He has been consistent in my opinion, and if you want to run him out of Dallas you might want to stop and ask yourself why. If the Cowboys were in a salary cringe, then maybe the front office would have asked him to take a pay cut, instead of being a June 1st cut.
A reporter asked Carr earlier today: “Have the Cowboys talked to you about your contract?” And Carr replied “You talk to me more about it than they do.” So ultimately thus far, it seems Carr is the ultimate winner this offseason, keeping all his money, unless something unexpected happens. Carr has also talked about being a mentor to Byron Jones, the Cowboys athletic number one overall pick who shows alot of versatility and could probably line up at safety if he was asked to.
That is ultimately a win/win for the Cowboys.
Drafting Byron Jones number one Overall and adding Corey White this offseason as insurance, along with Morris Claiborne’s recovery, and Scandrick’s break out year, and a young Tyler Patmon who has shown alot of upside, you can guarantee that will motivate Carr to prove everyone wrong and boost his confidence.
Overall, the secondary has been somewhat of a weak spot for the Cowboys looking at all the earlier years, but a good pass rush and alot of competition at the position will bring a spark to the club and make it a fun battle and make everyone better.
