Cowboys Aren’t Signing RBs Denard Robinson Or Ronnie Hillman At This Time

Sources tell Todd Archer of ESPN that the Cowboys aren’t signing either Denard Robinson or Ronnie Hillman at this time.

Both players worked out for the Cowboys earlier this week, so they’re at least on the team’s radar if Dallas feels they need to add another running back at some point.

Robinson, 26, is a former fifth-round pick by the Jaguars in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year rookie contract and is exploring the open market for the first time in his career.

In 2016, Robinson appeared in 13 games for the Jaguars and recorded 144 yards on 41 attempts (3.5 YPC) and no touchdowns. He also finished with three receptions for 22 yards.

Hillman, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract before re-signing with Denver on a one-year, $2 million contract this past April. However, the Broncos cut him loose at the start of last season.

The Vikings later signed him to a contract after sustaining some injuries at running back. However, he was waived and claimed by the Chargers soon after.

In 2016, Hillman appeared in eight games for and ran for 131 yards on 41 carries (3.2 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 93 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
