    Details aren't up yet, but the story has been posted on Chron.com... Also, according to McCain, we are currently working on Hadnot's contract with his agent.

    Don't have a problem with it, but I still hope that Rick and Gary are open to a CB with the 18th pick if the right guy's still there.

    I thought he was good last year. Remember, Cowboy fans also swear that Roy Williams is a better safety than Ronnie Lott was. I've actually had that argument with a couple of them. So, when they rip a player, take it with a grain of salt.

    One of the posters posted his stats from the year. If I recall, he gave up 7 TDs and a completion % of 56.6... At 25 years old, I'll take those numbers and hope for some steady improvement.

    I'm a Cowboys fan. And if I even heard my best friend say that, I would punch him in the face, cuz he obviously needs something rearranged up there.

    Maybe you heard that five years ago, when he was actually good.

    Good to hear! We need the depth and competition in the secondary.

    This guy seems average to better than average, so that would actually be an improvement in a few areas, if for no other reason that debth.

    If I remember correctly, dude got beat numerous times in the NYG playoff game. I trust he's better than Petey though, so it's a decent signing imo.

    Decent depth, for some reason I keep wanting to say Reeves will be a combination of Buchannon and Faggins, but we'll see what happens. I'm more excited about trying to get Hadnot, he can add some real talent to our line, especially with Gibbs to coach him up.

    He's probablly a notch or two better then Faggins (which makes him several notches better then Fletcher), but I'm not sold on the idea of him starting opposite Bennett at the start of the season.

    I'm withholding total judgement till I see the contract numbers.

    I am not happy at all with this signing. I hope we are still looking at cb at #18. This guy is nickel caliber material, at best.

    I don't mind the signing so long as it is not all we're doing at the spot. Preferably we bring in a veteran and draft someone early in the draft and let them duke it out for the spot opposite Bennett. Ideally he would be our nickelback but we might have to stomach him starting until Dunta gets back.

    Looks like Hutchins replacement.

    Playing opposite Newman will get you picked on some because they aren't going after Newman.

    It seems a decent addition, especially if Dunta comes back at 100% (eventually).

    I talked to a Cowboy fan today, he said that he doesn't want Reeves back but thinks he can be decent with a change of scenery.

    Dallas is expected to adress CB in the 1st anyway, so it makes sense that the newcomer would at least play the nickel for them.

    Wish he were Petey's replacement instead. If Reeves were in addition to re-signing Von I'd be a lot happier.
