Shades of a certain No. 22

Some former Cowboys players who watched Ezekiel Elliott this season believe he is a bigger, faster, stronger, better version of all-time great Emmitt Smith. That's quite the statement, all things considered. Mort & Schefter's notebook

Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

The NFL said Thursday that an unsportsmanlike conduct foul on Cowboys WR Brice Butler during the divisional playoff round was properly called. According to the league, Butler violated Rule 5, Section 2, Article 8(e), which it said has been on the books since 1955. It prohibits substitute players from moving past the painted numbers on the field and then leaving without participating in one play. In response to a tweet from former NFL executive Michael Lombardi, NFL senior vice president Dean Blandino said he has not spoken to any teams about a potential error on the call. Blandino supported referee Tony Corrente on the decision.

Release, not trade, ahead for Tony Romo?

The Cowboys will certainly explore a trade, Todd Archer writes, but there are many hoops to jump through. Plus, releasing Romo could provide more cap relief this season. Predicting big changes

Don't expect much spending in Dallas

Tony Romo's situation could provide some relief, but the Cowboys are nearly $20 million over the 2017 cap right now. Keeping key pieces around won't be easy, John Clayton writes. Penny pinchers (Insider)

Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee was added to the Pro Bowl Tuesday as a replacement for Carolina's Luke Kuechly. Lee was one of the biggest snubs at the time the Pro Bowl rosters were announced. This will be his second straight appearance and brings the total Cowboys at the all-star game to six, joining Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin.
