I have to believe that the Cowgirls signed Tank PRIOR to facing the Bears in order to pick his brain and hopefully be better prepared to solve their suffocating Defense.

Tank seems like a likeable guy. Hope things work out for him in Dallas.

Another irony is Tank would not have violated any firearm laws in Texas.

Texas allows it citizen to carry concealed weapons and has no FOID requirement.

Good luck Tank!

There isn't much risk for the cowboys here, this is up to Tank to ressurect his career. This will be his last chance to prove to everyone that being a professional Football Player is more important than the reckless behavior he displayed before. If he can't get this right, he has no one to blame but himself.

Outstanding article. You seem to rooting for Johnson, not wanting to heap dirt on him.
This kid will do well in Dallas and is fortunate to get this opportunity.

The Dallas Cowboys are the UNLV of the NFL. Sign any felon if he can play. And Michael Irvin in the Hall of Fame - shamefull. I bet they sign Michael Vick as soon as he is elligable again.

You're a horrible writer, Haugh. The first thing the Tribune's new owner will do is fire you.

From a DT that has not played for them or been in camp since the Super Bowl?? What can they learn from him that they will not see on film? Besides, he cannot be with the team until week 9.

Shameful? This from a guy in Patriots' territory?
Michael Irvin retired in 1999. What felons are you referring to? And the Cowboys have no need for a QB with a completion percentage around 53%. You make me laugh--alot!

You do not know what you are talking about.

And there is no way that the Dallas Cowboys would
even give Michael Vick a workout. He was not a
very good QB. He might have been a good RB or
Wide out, but then, I doubt we will ever know.

The Cowboys do not have a history (and I've been
following them since 1965) that suggests what
you say is true.

Michael Irvin had some problems, but hardly like
what you suggest. And Tank has made bad choices,
but again, not in the league that you are talking
about.

I expect his contract is very explicit about the
line he has to talk, and I also expect he will
do so. If he doesn't, I am also sure he would be
cut. Minimum salary with "incentives". Does that
ring any bells for you?

Now since you made the statement, lets see the
list of felons the Cowboys have signed. The way
you talk, it must be a very long list. Go ahead,
list them and what their felonies were for. You
are an expert on the subject, right?

Uh, uh. You really didn't think this through very well, did you? Right, he's going to give them a lot of information that their coaching staff doesn't have. Really? What do you think that might be?
