Sean Lissemore becomes first Cowboys rookie to sign

The Dallas Cowboys have finally gotten into the act of signing rookie draft picks.

According to Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys on Wednesday came to terms on a four-year deal with seventh-round pick Sean Lissemore.
A projected defensive end in Dallas’ 3-4 scheme, Lissemore is listed at 6-foot-4 and 298 pounds.  He recorded 14 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, and two interceptions as a senior at William & Mary.
Defensive end is among the deepest positions on the Cowboys’ roster, so Lissemore also took reps at nose tackle during offseason workouts.  Jay Ratliff is Dallas’ starter at the position.
Lissemore will have to really stand out in training camp to earn a 53-man roster spot.  Most likely, the Cowboys will attempt to sneak him through waivers and sign him to the practice squad in September.

    DeMarcus Ware on one side, Anthony Spencer on the other, and Jay Ratliff in the middle. Shutdown corners Newman and Jenkins. All solid. Safeties are a concern .
    Pro Bowl QB. Explosive running game. Big, fast physical receivers. LT is an issue.
    Dynamic offense second in the league in yardage. Redzone ineffiency needs improvement.
    Pre-season goal of first round playoff bye very attainable.

    bigrig,
    the only problem is the Cowboys do not have the 2nd best receiver of all time anymore.
    Just ask dumbscott13.

    Yes, no longer having the 2nd best receiver of all time is going to leave the Cowboys woefully short of lockerroom drama and dropped passes.
