The Cowboys will not pick up Leighton Vander Esch's fifth-year option for 2022, according to his agent, Ron Slavin, which will make the 2018 first-round pick an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season.

Dan Quinn won a Super Bowl in Seattle, saw a Super Bowl lead disappear as Atlanta's coach and was let go after five games in 2020. What are the Cowboys getting? “Well, much like a player, I guess, I have to prove it,” he said. “What you can count on from me is somebody that's real specific in how we're going to go about it and get after it and I'm very much looking forward to proving it. The very best competitive moments in my life have come from prove-it moments … So I guess we'll have to see.”

Dan Quinn had options other than the Cowboys, but said the decision to join the staff, “was the whole package of it. It's Jerry. It's Stephen. It's Mike. It's the defense. It's what I think the type of program and place that I'd like to be a part of,” he said. “It was really a no brainer for me when the opportunity was presented to me to come and be a part of this … I've been really impressed with the process of how it's going. So I'm pumped to be here, man.”

Jaycee Horn, a Cowboys' first-round target, showed up to the draft party of Cowboys' sixth-round pick and South Carolina teammate Israel Mukuamu. “He is excited for me,” Mukuamu said. At his Pro Day, he met with Dan Quinn. “He said he liked my game. I am very long, he likes long corners,” he said. He said the Cowboys have not talked about his position yet, but on special teams he said, "I am just a do-it-all guy."

Quinton Bohanna had a feeling the Cowboys would draft him. Every time Dallas came up on the television, he hoped that was the time. He was finally right in the sixth round. “They were the first team I talked to the owner,” he said. “I talked to Mr. Jerry Jones and when he knew me and knew who I was and telling me my name I was shocked. I knew they just had a lot of interest. The best conversation I had in the draft process was with Coach McCarthy, Coach Quinn and Coach Jerry.”

Cowboys' fifth-round pick Simi Fehoko called himself, “raw,” but he believes his best football to come. “I'm undeveloped,” he said. “All I need is one person to really learn from and I think that with my God given ability and gifts there's no reason that I can't be the best wide receiver in this draft class, if not the league.”

While at Florida State, Josh Ball was accused of 11 incidents involving a woman, including three that were physical. An injunction barred Ball from having any contact with the woman and he ultimately left school and went to a junior college before attending Marshall. “Teams have obviously asked about that,” he said. “It happened in the past and since then I have taken the time to grow as a human being, grow as a man.”

Many draft prognosticators feel the Cowboys reached with their third-round picks. Stephen Jones said Osi Odighizuwa, Chauncey Golston and Nahshon Wright were higher on their board than where the Cowboys selected them. “Remember the biggest one of all was (Travis) Frederick (in the first round in 2013),” he said. “He ended up going to what six Pro Bowls and everybody had him in the fifth, sixth round? Sometimes they're right. Sometimes you're right.”
