Maybe Jerry Jones just wants to extend the promotional brand of Fourth and Long, the Michael Irvin reality show in which Jones awarded a 80-man roster spot to the winner.
Or maybe Jesse Holley has really earned his spot on the Cowboys practice squad. (This heads-up play resulting in a 82-yard touchdown couldn’t hurt.)
Whatever the reason, Holley’s accomplishment indicates his presence on the training camp roster wasn’t all just a stunt. Who knows, maybe Holley will even be able to do his wing-flapping touchdown dance in a game that counts someday.
The rest of your 2009 Dallas practice squad: guard Travis Bright, quarterback Rudy Carpenter, tight end Scott Chandler, fullback Julius Crosslin, defensive end Marcus Dixon, wide receiver Manny Johnson, and wide receiver Mike Mickens.
