Fantasy Tip: This could be Bryant's way of voicing his displeasure with the organization for not signing him to a long-term deal this offseason. If he were skipping mandatory workouts this would be bigger news, but at least they're voluntary. As long as Bryant shows up for the regular season and is healthy, he's a candidate for the No. 1 overall fantasy wide receiver.

Free-agent WR A.J. Jenkins (Chiefs) signed an undisclosed deal with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday, May 26, according to a source. Jenkins was the 30th overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2012, but he didn't catch a pass in three games with them. Dallas wanted to add a veteran receiver with WR Dez Bryant not taking part in the offseason training program. WRs Terrance Williams and Devin Street have worked with the first team in Bryant's absence, with WR Cole Beasley playing the slot.

Updating an ongoing story, the Dallas Cowboys have moved on from the idea of trading for Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, despite persistent rumors, according to The Dallas Morning News' Brandon George. Don't entirely rule out anything when it comes to Dallas owner and general manager Jerry Jones, George says, but the belief is that the organization is largely content with their current crop of running backs.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson trade rumors probably will continue to float about for the duration of his contract -- three more years -- or until something actually happens. Until it does, stay the course and trust him as a No. 1 fantasy back even if he is disgruntled with the Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr, who is set to make $8 million this year and count $12.7 million against the salary cap, hasn't had contract extension talks with the team, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said multiple times that he wants Carr to stick around.

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) could be a consideration for the Dallas Cowboys in free agency, speculates The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota. He cites Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones' willingness to give players a second chance and Dallas' continued search for running back depth. However, Machota notes the chance of Dallas pursuing Rice is unlikely due to Rice's time away from the game, drastic on-field decline in 2013, and Jones having to eventually draw a line in the sand with forgiving off-field incidents.
Fantasy Tip: Rice is free to sign wherever he pleases, but it remains a long shot, at best, for any team to take on the media circus and backlash that would follow. Avoid him in all leagues if you were considering him as a speculative addition.

Fantasy Tip: Tate could grab a chunk of the committee approach expected from the Dallas backfield and provide depth at the position. He has flashed solid production at various stages of his career, and he has just 540 carries over his four-year career. So while he hasn't racked up significant miles as a pro, injuries have been problematic for the Auburn alum. Running behind a top-tier offensive line would boast Tate's fantasy value, and he would be worth a late-round flier in drafts, if he signs with the Cowboys. After all, Darren McFadden has his own injury concerns, Joseph Randle hasn't proven he can handle the load, and Lance Dunbar is best utilized in the passing game as a change-of-pace back.

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle is the most likely option to lead the team's running back by committee approach in 2015. Randle has the most experience in the system, and he also has experience as a starter. Randle filled in for RB DeMarco Murray in 2013, when Murray was injured.
Fantasy Tip: Randle will likely be discounted all through draft season and he will also be likely to begin the 2015 season as a cheap option on FantasyScore. There are plenty of on-field and off-field issues surrounding Randle, but the upside is high.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dustin Vaughan could follow QB Tony Romo as the Cowboys' starting quarterback. West Texas A&M head coach Mike Nesbitt believes his ex-quarterback will be worth the wait. "No doubt it's going to take some time," Nesbitt said. "He's not going to be your one or two right now. But I do think with experience and with time, he could turn out to be a starter in the NFL. But it's going to take a team that has that kind of patience. He's a hidden gem," said Nesbitt. Vaughan threw 43 passes in his first preseason in 2014 - Romo only threw 17 passes in his first preseason.
