Cowboys rookie missing minicamp for good reason


The Cowboys couldn’t wait to draft Demarcus Lawrence, but they’re going to have to wait to see him.

According to Todd Archer of, the Cowboys’ second-round pick is going to miss the first day of this weekend’s rookie minicamp so he can be there for the birth of his son.

The Cowboys gave up their second- and third-round picks to take Lawrence with the 34th overall pick, thinking there was a significant drop-off between him and the next tier of pass-rushers.

And while time for offseason work is short, there’s nothing happening in Dallas this weekend that will be bigger for Lawrence than what he’s about to experience.

    Good to see he has the stones to miss a day early in his career to make sure his life doesn’t pass him by.

    Good for him! He sounds like a guy that has his priorities straight. I can’t wait to see him wreck shop for America’s Team.
