As the Cowboys head into their season finale against the Eagles Sunday, team owner Jerry Jones is reflecting on a disappointing season.
Dallas came into 2017 off of a 13-3 season with hopes of making a Super Bowl run, but that certainly has not been the case. While Jones remains optimistic, he willingly admits that the Cowboys shouldn’t be where they are this year.
Well, I think that we all are disappointed because we didn’t meet our expectation, Jones said, via Star-Telegram. We shouldn’t have had the record that we had this year.
Financially, the 49ers don’t have any obstacles when it comes to signing or tagging Garoppolo as they project to have well over $100 million in salary cap space after they roll over what’s left on this year’s ledger.
Still, the Niners’ preference is to find a common ground and strike a deal with Garoppolo soon so they can begin using what’s left of their cap space on building up the roster around him.
Shaun Wilson, RB, Duke The diminutive Wilson did it all for Duke in Tuesday’s 36-14 win over Northern Illinois. The 5-9, 185-pound senior ran for 75 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 22 yards and another score against the Huskies. Wilson, who finished his senior season with 818 rushing yards and six touchdowns, could be a late draft pick in April. Whether he’s drafted or not, Wilson should be in a training camp next summer and has the ability to be a solid third-down back at the next level with good speed and elusiveness in the open field.
Kenny Young, LB, UCLA �� Kansas State became the fifth team to rush for more than 300 yards in a game against the Bruins with 344 in the Cactus Bowl, but Young was all over the field. The 6-1, 235-pound senior plays well sideline to sideline and capped his college career with nine tackles, including one for loss. He finishes his time at UCLA with 304 career tackles, 21 for loss, 6 1/2 sacks and a pair of interceptions.
December closes the book on the first double-digit points month of Dumba’s burgeoning career as an offensive blue liner. His six goals for the month are a showcase of the shot he packs from the point, in addition to his ability to jump into the offensive zone. His average ice time spiked by more than two minutes for the second consecutive season as the 23-year-old has earned the trust of coach Bruce Boudreau in most situations. He’s still hanging around on wires in a quarter of ESPN leagues.
