Danny McCray hoping to add second tag
|Cowboys S Barry Church talks about getting the starting nod after the team released Brodney Pool, playing under Rob Ryan and more. |
It’s not that McCray is in any danger of not making the roster this summer, but “special teams players” have a shelf life of only so long, unless you’re Bill Bates. Keith Davis found that out in the mid 2000s.
“I’m starting to figure that out now,” McCray said.
The Cowboys’ decision to cut Brodney Pool bumps McCray up in the safety rotation. He played in some sub packages last year and is in some this year, while also working on the second-team defense.
“I would rather be labeled both (a good defensive player and special teams player) than just one,” McCray said. “I wouldn’t say it’s hard to lose it. It’s more about gaining the respect of the defensive coaches that I’m a good defensive player also.”
He’ll get his chance more and more this summer.
