Report: Cowboys “lightly shopped” Jourdan Lewis at the
end of the preseason About an hour before their final preseason game of 2018 the Dallas Cowboys traded away cornerback Charvarius Ward to the Kansas City Chiefs. In return they acquired offensive lineman Parker Ehinger who would shortly end up on injured reserve.What if Ward wasn’t the only corner that the Cowboys dangled for would-be NFL teams? According to a report that surfaced on Tuesday night Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , Dallas “lightly shopped” second-year cornerback Jourdan Lewis.As you’ll note in part of the tweet (and as you’ve likely seen for yourself through two games), Jourdan has been used quite sparingly thus far. Dallas has a bevy of cornerbacks in Chidobe Awuzie, Byron Jones, Anthony Brown, and the aforementioned Lewis Dallas Cowboys Hats , but the realities of football dictate that you simply can’t play everybody.Still though, Jourdan Lewis was impressive through his rookie campaign. When reports surfaced at OTAs that Anthony Brown got the nod over Lewis as the team’s slot corner many were upset, but Kris Richard looks like he knows what he’s doing with a star on his polo so it’s not exactly easy to question his decision-making here. We don’t know exactly what conversations happened with the Cowboys in regards to potentially trading Lewis. Saying that they “lightly” shopped him indicates that things weren’t very serious, and if they had indeed managed to move him perhaps they wouldn’t have dealt away Charvarius in order to preserve their depth.The truth is it’s a very good thing that a player like Jourdan Lewis has only played one snap so far. That means that the Cowboys have a collection of talent and that they’ve hedged their bets in important places like the secondary. It makes sense that they would have looked to capitalize on that, and they ultimately did Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , it just wasn’t while using Jourdan as one of the pieces to do so.Seahawks players picked up on Cowboys defensive hand signals before the Tyler Lockett touchdown The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, and by now many are ready to move on to their next opponent in the Detroit Lions. The same is true for the Seahawks themselves who will play the Arizona Cardinals in Josh Rosen’s debut, but before the games can happen the normal practices of a given NFL week have to occur. This includes media sessions, taking to the podium, you get the picture. Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin met with the Seattle media on Thursday. Baldwin has yet to play this season but he was seen getting animated on the sidelines against the Cowboys. Baldwin discussed a different wide receiver catching a touchdown against Dallas on Thursday Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , Tyler Lockett. You’ll remember that Lockett hauled in a 52-yard pass from Russell Wilson for a score right inside of the two-minute warning in the first half. The score gave Seattle a 14-3 lead and that was plenty to keep the Cowboys out of contention and cruise to victory. How did Seattle score so easily on the deep bomb to Lockett, though? Until then Dallas had kept him and the Seahawks offense relatively in check. According to Baldwin, the answer lies in hand signals, specifically the defensive ones that the Cowboys were using. Two practice squad players on the Seahawks had the job of watching them throughout the game in hopes of deciphering what they meant, and Baldwin claims they did.The Lockett touchdown came on Seattle’s fifth offensive possession of the game , and they had also gotten in the endzone on their fourth. It makes logical sense that after the first three the Seahawks were somewhat aware of what the Cowboys were doing defensively which led to the success they had, and perhaps Dallas changed things up at halftime which is why things stalled for Seattle. This of course will remind everyone of the infamous Spygate scandal that plagued the New England Patriots in 2007, but it’s not like the Seahawks videotaped the Cowboys on a previous occasion and got the knowledge that way. They had players watching Dallas mid-game and were able to crack the code quickly enough to use the knowledge to their benefit in the same contest, so much so that Baldwin believes the Seahawks could have scored any way on the Lockett touchdown.For what it’s worth Jerry Jones and Co. may have been aware of this as he said Seattle knew some of their tendencies when he appeared on 105.3 The Fan this week. Who knows.What do you think of Seattle deciphering the Cowboys defensive hand signals? Is it unfair? Within the boundaries of the rules? Just another demerit in a bad game?Let’s hope the hand signals are a bit different this Sunday against the Lions.
