Pre-camp 53-man roster projection
By Tim MacMahon
We'll revise this list on a weekly basis throughout training camp and the preseason. Here are the 52 players who received invitations to training camp that we think will make the final cut ... and one player we expect the Cowboys to add just before the regular season.
Kicker John Carney, 46, might not be out of work for long.
I reserve the right to change my mind if Hodge, who is coming back from microfracture knee surgery, isn’t ready at the beginning of training camp. But he’s a potential Bill Bates-type of special-teams stud.
Church, an undrafted rookie, has a chance to be a cheaper version of Pat Watkins, who has hung around for four years because of his special-teams prowess. Church, who blocked three kicks as a senior, is a solid tackler who excelled on kick coverage teams in addition to being a four-time All-MAC safety at Toledo.
