Former Cowboys Who Have Been Signed to NFL Practice Squads

Several former Cowboys get opportunities on NFL scout teams

Following an eventful NFL roster cut day — which saw the likes of Dan Bailey and seventh-round draft pick Marcell Ateman cut, several former Cowboys who were left on the outside looking in, found their way onto NFL practice squads.

Marcell Ateman — Oakland Raiders
Chris Lacy — Detroit Lions
Lenzy Pipkins — Indianapolis Colts
Ramon Richards — Los Angeles Rams
Brad Lundblade — Cincinnati Bengals
Victor Salako — New York Giants

For 2018, the minimum salary dictated by the collective bargaining agreement for practice squad players is $7,600 per week through the regular season and in the playoffs, and there is no cap on what they can make.

Practice squad players cannot participate in any games and each team has a limit of 10 spots available to help their rostered players prepare.

These players still have the opportunity to be signed by their respective employers as well as other teams looking to add depth in case of injury, etc. Last year, Kevin Peterson was promoted from the Rams scout team due to injury in the secondary and earned a roster spot before going down with injury himself this preseason.

Bailey looking elsewhere

Also cut former Poke, Dan Bailey, had a workout with the New York Jets on Monday. He was effectively replaced by Dallas with former CFL kicker Dan Maher who went 4-of-5 this preseason including a 57-yard make in the Cowboys’ preseason finale against Houston.

Bailey, who struggled with injury last season, was scheduled to make $3.4 million this season, Maher is promised just $480,000 according to SportsDay.
