IRVING, Texas – In addition to the 14 undrafted free agents, the Dallas Cowboys will have nine players in for a tryout during the team’s rookie minicamp.
The most intriguing is Cal Poly’s Chris Brown. He was a quarterback in college, but the Cowboys will work him out as a receiver. He had two games in his career in which he ran, threw and caught a touchdown pass. Last season he ran for 1,084 yards with 13 touchdowns, and he also threw for 846 yards with 12 touchdown passes.
Two veterans will take part in the camp with tight end Justin Tukes and defensive tackle Tory Slater working out. Tukes spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles last year, while Slater was with the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns.
The Cowboys will also have Texas A&M safety Sam Moeller, Wisconsin tight end Austin Traylor, SMU defensive end and long snapper Zach Wood, Kansas running back Taylor Cox, TCU wide receiver Ja’Juan Story and Tulsa fullback Mandel Dixon in for workouts.
