QB Nathan Dick of Allen receives tryout deal
Dick worked out for the Cowboys at Dallas Day earlier in the month. As a senior at Central Arkansas, he threw for 3,275 yards with 32 touchdown passes and nine interceptions.
Vanderbilt’s Larry Smith will also attend the camp. He threw for 3,223 yards with 16 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in his career. He started the first six games for the Commodores last year with a 4-2 record.
With Tony Romo, Kyle Orton, Stephen McGee and Rudy Carpenter on the roster, the Cowboys did not make a play for a quarterback in the draft or go after a priority college free agent. And undrafted quarterbacks like Boise State’s Kellen Moore wanted to go to teams where they had a better chance of making the team.
The Cowboys are planning on having 10-15 players at the rookie camp on a tryout basis in addition to the seven draft picks and 21 undrafted free agents they signed.
