Tackle Edawn Coughman, guard D.J. Hall and wide receiver Anthony Amos were added to the roster, and tackle Aderious Simmons and wide receiver Greg Herd were cut.

Coughman spent time with Seattle last season after starting for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL in 2011. Hall, a Palestine, Texas native, spent time last year on Jacksonville’s practice squad. Amos caught 72 passes for 992 yards and nine touchdowns last year at Middle Tennessee State.

Simmons signed with the Cowboys earlier in the offseason and Herd was an undrafted free agent.
IRVING, Texas – Last year, defensive end Ben Bass turned a rookie minicamp tryout into spot on the Cowboys’ practice squad and eventually a call-up to the 53-man roster.

With the Cowboys opening rookie minicamp, Galloway and Mosley discuss the incoming rookie class and who will make the biggest impact.
