Stephen Jones Opens Door for Cowboys to Sign Dez Bryant

Adding Brice Butler should give Dak Prescott Cowboys help in area of need

Adding Brice Butler should give Dak Prescott Cowboys help in area of need

He takes the spot of defensive lineman Aziz Shittu, who was released to make room.

He has played for the Oakland Raiders (2013-14) and Cowboys (2015-17) over his five prior National Football League seasons. He finished the 2017 season with the Cowboys, catching two passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, his signing does raise concerns about the outlook for now shelved DTs Maliek Collins, Datone Jones, and David Irving.

The team has not announced a corresponding move, but head coach Jason Garrett did discuss the prospect of a Butler return when he spoke to the media on Monday.

Now that Brice Butler has returned, the question is who is on the outs? Although Dallas reportedly didn't have much interest in the troubled wideout, they were still one of three other teams in contact with Cleveland about a possible deal along with the Patriots, who eventually secured Gordon's services.

Red Sox-Yankees game postponed to 7:05
ET Tuesday, but the game has been pushed back to a 7:05 p.m. start with rain expected throughout the afternoon. On the field, the Red Sox have a chance to clinch the division with a win against the Yankees in the series.

The Cowboys brought back a familiar face to their receiving corps. They haven't gotten off to a particularly great start, either.

Williams, a starter in his first five years with the Cowboys, has two catches for 18 yards in the first two games and has played only 29 of 117 offensive snaps.

Butler wasn't a major weapon for Dak Prescott during his previous stint in Dallas and isn't expected to be in his return.
