Cowboys sign (West) Texas A&M quarterback

During the draft, the Dallas Cowboys resisted the temptation to draft Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.  After the draft, the Cowboys gave in to the temptation to sign a quarterback from West Texas A&M.

Dustin Vaughan has joined the Cowboys, the team announced on Tuesday.  He’s perhaps better known for producing a hilarious promotional video, which shows him working out while wearing a Christmas sweater.

And while its long shot for Vaughan to make the team, an undrafted quarterback signed 11 years ago by the Cowboys climbed the ladder to become the team’s starter.

Vaughan was one of 24 undrafted free agents signed by the Cowboys. The rest were Illinois State tackle Josh Aladenoye, Vanderbilt receiver Chris Boyd, Bloomsburg guard Brian Clarke, Arizone defensive tackle Davon Coleman, Louisiana State fullback JC Copeland, Bengals guard Andre’ Cureton, Iowa long snapper Casey Kreiter, Texas A&M running back Ben Malena, Alabama punter Cody Mandell, Baylor running back Glasco Martin, Baylor tight end Jordan Najvar, South Carolina guard Ronald Patrick, Tarleton State cornerback Dashaun Phillips, Akron guard Jarrod Pughsley, Ferris State safety Marvin Robinson, Tennessee linebacker Dontavis Sapp, Bethel-Tennessee cornerback Jocquel Skinner, San Jose State linebacker Keith Sims, Auburn safety Ryan Smith, Missouri receiver L’Damian Washington, Texas defensive tackle Chris Whaley, Illinois tight end Evan Wilson, and Northern Illinois linebacker Joe Windsor.

    Cowboys sign 24 UFAs!

    That’s like 50% of the game day roster!

    I see a big roster turnover for the ‘Boys this off-season!

    We now have the best QB, best backup QBs, best WRs, best RBs, best defense, best O-line, best special teams, best coach, and best owner in the league, and second in NFL history only to the 90s Cowboys! We are starting a new dynasty this year with a minimum of 3 Super Bowls in the next 6 years! R******s, Browns, Aints, and Texans wish they were us!

    Glad to read that the guy has a sense of humor. He’ll need it in Jerry’s World.

    I hope he catches on somewhere. Maybe, he can come be the Panthers backup if doesn’t catch on there. Will be the first backup QB jersey I ever buy.

    Dustin Vaughan, the only A&M QB worthy of being drafted by the Cowboys.

    Truly amazing the level of attention signing a camp body creates with certain franchises.

    The Browns get Manziel and we get a Will Ferrell want-to-be. SMH

    Making the comparison to Romo being undrafted in semi-accurate… at least this kid was invited to the combine, Romo wasn’t.

    Should have been Johnny! I’m not a Cowboys fan but even I can see that JJ and Johnny would’ve been great together. That is if JJ would be able to reign in his ego and allow someone else in the spotlight. Doubtful, though. Ah, what could have been!
