Cowboys Practice Squad: 8 Players Signed, Stephen McGee Released

The Cowboys signed eight players to their practice squad after the final cuts for 53-man rosters and also released No.3 quarterback Stephen McGee to fill a void at tight end with Jason Witten having health issues. Dallas picked up tight end Colin Cochart off waivers

Cochart, considered primarily a blocker more so than the receiving threat Witten is and Martellus Bennett was when he was with the team, started three games for the Bengals last year and played in 10. He caught five passes for 44 yards and one touchdown in 2011.

As noted at Blogging the Boys, none of the Cowboys' Friday cuts were picked up off waivers by other teams, so the practice squad is made up entirely of players the Cowboys had in camp: WR Danny Coale, LB Orie Lemon, RB Lance Dunbar, RB Jamize Olawale, DT Robert Calloway, DE Ben Bass, WR Tim Benford and G Ron Leary.
