NFL Notes: Da’Runnya Wilson, Cowboys, Dolphins, & Steelers

Da’Runnya Wilson

  • Tony Pauline reports that NFL teams are considering signings Mississippi State undrafted rookie Da’Runnya Wilson and converting him from receiver to tight end.

Cowboys

Cowboys C Travis Frederick is hoping to sign a long-term contract that will keep him in Dallas for the foreseeable future.

Obviously, we’d love to do a long-term deal,” Frederick said Sunday, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That’s something that still has yet to be worked out. But the fact that they picked up the option just shows they have faith in me, and that they’re happy with what I’ve been able to accomplish so far. Hopefully, we can use this time to continue to build and get better and build our relationship closer.

“Obviously, I’d love to be here,” Frederick added. “I love playing for the Cowboys. I think it’s a great organization. Hopefully things work out that way.

Dolphins

  • Armando Salguero mentions that former Bears G Matt Slauson, who was cut Sunday, was drafted by Dolphins executive VP Mike Tannenbaum from he was the Jets’ general manager back in 2009.
  • Salguero adds that new Dolphins HC Adam Gase was Slauson’s offensive coordinator last year in Chicago.
  • Beyond that, the Dolphins could use help at guard, so this could be something to keep an eye on in the coming days.

Steelers

  • Mark Kaboly mentions that the Steelers’ roster currently sits at 92 players, and re-signing QB Bruce Gradkowski will leave them at 93.
  • Rather than cutting some players, Kaboly suggests that the Steelers could instead  transfer a couple of their undrafted free agent signings to tryouts.
