Cowboys Make Bold Move, Signing aggressive Ex-13-TD Running Back in first Roster moves

Jan 19, 2024 #Cowboys, #Snoop Conner

The Dallas Cowboys are adding depth at running back in the team’s first roster moves of the offseason.

After signing a wave of eight players to reserve/future contracts, the Cowboys announced three additional additions. Dallas also signed two running backs, Snoop Conner and Malik Davis, as well as receiver Martavis Bryant.

The wideout already had a brief stint on the team’s practice squad this season before the team decided to use the spot for another player ahead of the NFL playoffs. Davis spent the last two seasons with Dallas, mostly on the practice squad.

Conner is perhaps the most notable addition, as he was previously not on Dallas’ roster. Most recently, Conner played eight games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2022, recording 12 carries for 42 yards.

The Cowboys previously announced the signing of the following players to reserve contracts: receiver Jalen Moreno-Cropper, wideout Racey McMath, tackle Earl Bostick, cornerback Josh Butler, tight end Princeton Fant, linebacker Buddy Johnson, pass rusher rusher Durrell Johnson and defensive end Sheldrick Red Wine.

The new running back brings with him an impressive college resume and a standout career at Ole Miss. Conner has 130 catches for 647 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2021.
Ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft, Lance Zierlein of NFL.com described Conner as “aggressive” and “unchained.” Jacksonville selected Conner in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

“A great racer with an aggressive temperament and relatively low mileage on his tires,” Zierlein noted in Conner’s advance profile. “Conner is a versatile runner, which could help him get to the next level. He is more than willing to choose violence in every snapshot, but rarely lets that attitude stop him from seeking the path less traveled with his vision.

“He will find himself involved in numerous tackles due to his fiery pace, but ironically he is a patient defender and very effective at close range.

However, Conner’s disappointing performance at the NFL Scouting Combine is hard to ignore and could jeopardize his standing among evaluators. Conner has three talents and projects as a good committee with the structure to carry a workload if necessary.
