Cowboys cut Hurns.
I expected this as soon as he went down, weird that it took til now to do it.
We signed quarterback Taryn Christion from the Seahawks.

I read this and think Holmes might make the 53 as their punt return man. Interesting

A) getting paid
B) being ready to go come Wk 1

Val Holmes highlight package here. (hope it works)

https://www.nfl.com/share/32052020-2020 ... 3433353432

First couple of runs looked hesitant, which can be expected. A couple of real nice catches out of the backfield. Also a solid 5 yard gain up the middle where he looked quite comfortable.

Overall it wasn't a bad intro to NFL. Keep in mind this was 4th qtr pre-season which is effectively 3rd/4th team stuff. Equivalent of reserve grade.

Doesn't seem to be any other way of sharing the video link via NFL.com. Anyway you can go to the Game Day page and its among the Highlights video list on the right.

I think i can get 6 yards on that Wade touchdown but when he hits his cut in the backfield and accelerates past the angle, that's pretty impressive
granted that safety is probably stacking cans at Walmart 6 months from now, but that run flashed REAL nfl traits

Good start for Wade

Holmes made some good plays in the pass game too, that's helpful for his NFL case. It kind of fits in with how i viewed him, his skill set is best suited to WR but its such a refined positon that it would be very tough for him to make it there outright. He runs like a RL player as a RB. Not lowering his pad level, too upright... Alvin Kamara runs a bit like that, but he's very special and Val Holmes isnt...so that's a technique thing that'll need to be corrected if he's to make something of himself in this code

He's not making the roster, im fairly confident of that. The jets are pretty good at WR actually, with Anderson, Crowder and Enuwa, and he wont play ST unless it is as a returner and he's shown nothing there yet. At RB they have lev, Billy Powell and Ty Montgomery... like there is no reason to believe they'd carry him on the roster when:

a) they can carry him as a PS player as an NFL subsidy and wont count to their PS 10
b) extremely unlikely anyone claims him on waivers on if he's moved there because 1) they dont do that with these international players awarded to teams and b) he's not shown enough for anyone to bother yet

TBF, half those guys will be stacking shelves in a couple of months.
However, that kinda run might just keep him in the mix til the last cut. (As in might make the 53 rather than just international spot).

Yeah I watched a lot of that game on NFL gamepass and commented to a mate of mine who’s into the nfl too that he just looked like your average run of the mill NFL tackle

Which is incredible progress in such a short space of time
Philly is INSANELY deep along the OL... and Andre Dillard looked outstanding too, so I don’t know what they do with Mailata and Big V, but I think they could move either for significant compensation

The Texans for example just traded a 3rd for Duke Johnson. They’d have been better off giving up a 2nd for one of those philly back ups

I really think Mailata will start games in the NFL

Its pretty impressive for a gut that has only had 2yr learning the game. He looks better than average IMO. That was starter ability for sure

Mailata played a lot of snaps against 7th overall pick Josh Allen, he got beaten very badly on one snap, and otherwise owned the match up
Really impressive how much he’s developing

He could start in the NFL. He’d be a bad starter right now if he had to start but you could play him. He’s better than at least 3-4 starting RT’s right now

He’s already a far superior NFL player to Hayne, and it’s not particularly close tbh

I think 12 months from now he’ll be someone’s starting tackle on a pretty good size deal

Great to see a young bloke go over and really give it a red hot go. Did that other Aussie make it? I can't remember his name but there was a bit of publicity about 5 years ago. Blonde haired fella who went through the college system.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

Jaylon Smith and the Dallas Cowboys have come to terms on a longterm contract extension, Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones announced during a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

Smith, a middle linebacker who started all 16 games as the Cowboys last season, received a five-year extension worth $64 million that includes $35.5 million guaranteed. He was in the final deal of his rookie contract prior to signing his extension.
