Cowboys vice president of public relations Rich Dalrymple retires after 32 years – Charean Williams, PFT

Longtime PR cowboy Rich Dalrymple has decided to retire. He loves work and is in good health, but decided the time was right.

Rich Dalrymple served as one of Jerry Jones’ confidants for 32 years, becoming something of an institution with cowboys. They won’t be the same without him.

Dalrymple announced Wednesday that he is retiring from the NFL.

“It’s something I considered,” Dalrymple, 61, told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I spoke to Jerry about it during the season and it seemed like the timing was better once the season was over.

“I’ve been here for 40 years, and I’m ready to move on and move away. It’s time. I am extremely grateful for all the relationships I have formed with players, coaches, fans and especially the Jones family. “

Dalrymple was working in the University of Miami’s sports information department in 1989 when head coach Jimmy Johnson left to become a Cowboys head coach. A year later, Greg Aiello left the Cowboys’ public relations department to join the league office in New York, and Johnson recommended Dalrymple.

Cowboys’ Stephen Jones Suggests Frustration With Amari Cooper’s Production – Rob Goldberg, Bleach Report

Amari Cooper opened the season with an absolutely dazzling match against Tampa Bay. Aside from the thrilling win at Minnesota, he never quite matched that level of dominance again. Cooper also wasn’t afraid to call offending, communication and call-calling issues, as Dallas falters in the stretch. That’s fine in Stephen Jones’ mind, but big money means big expectations at the end of the day, and Coop’s contract is more than a little problematic for the Cowboys going forward.

“Well, sometimes it’s not all on the receiver too. It’s a diagram. You need the receiver the ball, the touches, the targets he needs,” Jones told the reporter on Tuesday. “But if you’re going to pay someone a lot of money, you want them to be the best at what they do.”

Cooper’s $20 million base salary in 2021 was the highest among recipients, per SpotRac, but he finished just 68 receptions for 865 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games.

“Once you pay that player a lot of money, it comes with high expectations,” Jones added. “And they know it. These players know it.

It comes after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones shared similar frustrations with Cooper.

“A whole group of this defense should have Cooper to honor,” Jerry Jones told 105.3 the month fan last month, via Pro Talk Talk’s Charean Williams. “He should be able to catch it when they go in the middle with him. Others do. You throw at people who are covered all the time in the NFL. “

Jerry optimistic about Gregory; O-Line Talk & More – David Helman, Dallascowboys.com

Randy Gregory had the best season of his career in 2021. He also had some less than stellar moments. Still, after years of franchise at his side as he battled mental health issues and league suspensions, there’s reason to be optimistic he might be more willing to work with the team instead. than looking for the biggest contract possible. For what it’s worth, Jerry seems confident that Randy will be back in 2022.

It’s early in the season to focus on specific free agent situations, so she felt like Jones mentioned Randy Gregory on Wednesday. The Veteran Pass Rusher is heading to free agency after six sacks in 2021, and Jones allowed to have met Gregory’s Agent while in Mobile. Considering all the ups and downs the Cowboys have been through Gregory since drawing in 2015, Jones seemed optimistic both sides could make something work.

“Knowing about our time together and some of the upsides and some of the times that we’ve had to go through and some of the not-so-fun things, that will serve us well,” Jones said.

Dak Prescott, Tyron Smith and Zack Martin will not participate in the 2022 Pro Bowl – Matthew Lenix, Inside The Star

Ceeede Lamb has been added to the Pro Bowl roster replacing Cooper Kupp, who will play in the Super Bowl against Cincinnati. Although this is Lamb’s first appearance, he won’t get as much company as some might have expected, as Dak Prescott reportedly turned down an invitation to recover from several nagging injuries and Tyron Smith and Zack Martin also declined. to participate.

Left tackle Tryon Smith and right guard Zack Martin were also selected, and even quarterback DAK Prescott, like the lamb, was called up in the replacement role. However, the Cowboys’ top linebacker and two top offensive linemen opted out of the Pro Bowl set to take place Feb. 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The reason for the PRO Bowl’s demise is that he wants to rest after a long year of rehab from his ankle injury in 2020 and having a few injuries this season. He came out guns blazing this season throwing for at least three touchdowns in five of the Cowboys’ first six games in which they compiled a 5-1 record. However, he suffered a calf injury against the New England Patriots in Week 6 on the last play of the game when he threw the game-winning touchdown in overtime at the aforementioned Lamb, which caused him to miss. the Cowboys’ next game against the Minnesota Vikings. .

Report: Cowboys WR Michael Gallup to undergo surgery for torn ACL – Todd Brock, Cowboys Wire

Michael Gallup tore his ACL in the penultimate regular season game against Arizona. The injury ended a frustrating season for the talented wide, not only costing him his first playoff appearance, but sapping his wallet as he headed to his first free agency this summer.

The Cowboys’ team chief physician, Dr. Dan Cooper, will perform the procedure, according to Gehlken’s source. Gallup should be ready for the start of the 2022 season, although his future with the Cowboys remains unclear.

The former Colorado State third-round draft pick entered 2021 aiming for big numbers in a contract year, but suffered a calf injury in the season opener. relegated him to the sidelines until Week 10. Upon his return, he collected 31 more. Receptions, 409 extra yards and a pair of touchdowns before the left knee injury against the Cardinals (who came on an acrobatic scoring shot). He was put on injured reserve to finish the season.

Gehlken notes that ACL injuries typically involve a delay of several weeks before surgery, to allow “symptoms such as swelling to improve, which studies have shown to facilitate post-operative rehabilitation.”

With a long list of players set to enter free agency, the Cowboys will have a decision to make on Gallup. Researcher Amari Cooper is currently ordering a major contract; if the club chooses to keep him, it is widely believed that he could leave Gallup. The Cooper release or trade would free up enough money to issue a new 25-year deal and have funds left over for other players.
