The Cowboys waived interior offensive lineman Dakoda Shepley from their active roster Monday. Their plan was to re-sign him to their practice squad.

It didn’t happen.

The Colts claimed him off waivers Tuesday, with the claim deferred until Feb. 13, the first business day after the Super Bowl.

The move ends Shepley’s season.

He played four games for the Cowboys, seeing action on 14 offensive snaps and 16 on special teams.

Shepley has played 13 career games in his time with the Cowboys (2022), Seahawks (2021-22), 49ers (2020-21) and Jets (2018). He spent the 2019 season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League and started 14 games.

  1. Couldn’t he have declined the offer? Do practice squad members (also) get the playoff bonus checks? Seems like he may have lost some money on this deal.

  2. Only players on the practice squad can decline an offer from another team. Those offers must also be an offer to join the new team’s 53 man roster. In this case Shepley was waived so he wasn’t currently on the Cowboys practice squad. Had he cleared waivers the Cowboys would then have been able to sign him onto their practice squad. Why didn’t the Cowboys just revert him back to the PS? Because he’d already used up his maximum number of call-ups.
