2019 Schedule
8-8, 2nd in NFC East

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

With the NFL announcing the expansion of the playoffs to seven teams in each conference, what would have that meant to the Cowboys in the non-playoff years during the Jason Garrett era? Nothing. They closest they would have come was in 2013 in their third straight 8-8 finish. They would have lost out on a tiebreaker for the final spot due to a head-to-head loss to Chicago. In their 9-7 finish in 2017, they would have lost tiebreakers to Detroit (conference record) and Seattle (head to head).

Source: Cowboys reach deals with Zuerlein, Poe

Greg Zuerlein, who has converted 201 of 245 field goal attempts in the regular season (82%) and is 264-of-270 on extra point attempts since he entered the NFL in 2012, has agreed to a three-year deal with the Cowboys, sources told ESPN.

The Cowboys have finalized an agreement with veteran DT Dontari Poe on a two-year deal, according to a source. The financial particulars were agreed to on Monday but there had been a holdup on language. Poe, who turns 30 in August, needs to take a physical but his addition is a sure sign that the defense will change in 2020. In the past, the Cowboys wanted smaller, quicker defensive tackles, but at 346 pounds he is a true nose tackle.

A source has confirmed the Cowboys have agreed to a deal with kicker Greg Zuerlein, reuniting the kicker with his special teams coach from the Los Angeles Rams, John Fassel. Zuerlein has made 82 percent of his kicks in his career but missed nine (24 of 33) last season. He is the third kicker on the current roster with Kai Forbath, who made all 10 of his attempts with Dallas last season, and Tristan Vizcaino.

Of the Cowboys' 30 unrestricted and restricted free agents or players not tendered or did not have an option picked up, only six do not have contracts presently: wide receiver Tavon Austin, defensive lineman Michael Bennett, safety Kavon Frazier, defensive tackle Christian Covington, linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong and linebacker Malcolm Smith.

Source: Cowboys, Dak have returned to table

The Dallas Cowboys have resumed contract negotiations with Dak Prescott for the first time since the team used the exclusive franchise tag on the quarterback earlier this month, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder.

Having signed Blake Jarwin to a four-year contract and lost Jason Witten to the Las Vegas Raiders, the Cowboys have reached an agreement on a deal with tight end Blake Bell, who caught eight passes for 67 yards for Kansas City last season, according to a source. Bell is known mostly as a blocker with just 38 catches for 424 yards in his career, but he did catch a pass in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV win. Bell will join a tight end group that includes Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Cole Hikutini.
