Cowboys filling roster with former Green Bay Packers

Cowboys filling roster with former Green Bay Packers

However, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the team will have defensive end Quinton Dial in for a visit Monday.

Elliott was originally signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Toledo in 2014.

Thornton had 18 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in one season with the Cowboys after signing a $17 million, four-year deal with $9 million guaranteed. I can only control what I can do. The Packers started the day with 87 players on the roster and needed to cut down to 53 players by 3 pm today.

The preseason is sometimes a sign of things to come during the regular season. Elliott had 39 special teams tackles over the past three seasons and was slated for a larger role on defense this year but battled back problems the past two weeks.

Hill, an undrafted player out of BYU, impressed during the preseason, completing 14-20 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Packers had to be disappointed that Hill and Price didn't make it through waivers.

He is presumably just a snap away from earning the call-up to the active roster as Aaron Rodgers is backed up at the quarterback spot by Brett Hundley.

Hill flashed real potential in the preseason and the Packers certainly wanted to keep him around on the practice squad, but no dice.

Hopes are that they will not repeat last season's terrible performance. Additionally, the Packers signed the following players to the practice squad: G Kofi Amichia, CB Donatello Brown, QB Joe Callahan, WR Michael Clark, LB Reggie Gilbert, DT Izaah Lunsford, LB Derrick Mathews, G/T Adam Pankey, S Jermaine Whitehead and WR DeAngelo Yancey.
