Raymond Radway more confident in his return
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – When Jason Garrett watched Raymond Radway over the summer, the Cowboys coach never saw the Radway of 2011 that would have forced his way on to the 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent.
A broken leg suffered in the final seconds of the last preseason game ended Radway’s season before it began and he could not make an impact in training camp over the summer, finishing the preseason without a catch before his release.
The Cowboys signed Radway to the practice squad on Monday in part because of injuries to Miles Austin, Kevin Ogletree and Danny Coale just to make it through a practice.
But Radway hopes to stick.
“It feels the same, but I have more confidence coming in and out of my breaks now,” Radway said of his leg. “It’s not me hesitating to stop on that leg and think about re-injuring it or not. Now I’m just going full go and letting the leg do what it can.”
After he was cut, Radway worked out with former Cowboy Kevin Smith. He had a workout earlier in the season with Chicago.
“It was heartbreaking then and it was even more heartbreaking this year when I got cut, but once those things happen you can’t get down on yourself,” Radway said. “You’ve got to stay focused and I’m looking to stay longer than I did the last time.”
