— One down — ESPN’s Adam Schefter (and others) is reporting the Cowboys and WR Dez Bryant have agreed to a contract, making Bryant the first first-rounder to come under contract. That leaves 31 other first-rounders and most of the second-rounders still as camp approaches. I am not sure exactly where the Cards are with Dan Williams and Daryl Washington, but I don’t think anything is imminent. I hope to catch up with GM Rod Graves at some point.
— Given the circumstances, with Gerald Hayes ailing, you’ve got to wonder if it would get Washington on the field faster (with Paris Lenon filling in for Hayes). As long as Hayes sits, there will likely be some mixing and matching early on.
— The linebacker who won’t be able to play right away, O.B. Schofield, is trying hard to shorten his time frame to return. He is in great spirits in rehab, proudly noting he is back from the 221 pounds he had dropped to after his knee injury to 238 pounds (which is easy to see in the below photo, where you can see how his underwater running is monitored by trainers. Yes, he is wearing shorts).
