Report: Will Herring Meets With Cowboys, Despite Reportedly Calling Off Agreement



Aaron Wilson reports that free agent LB Will Herring visited with the Cowboys on Saturday, despite reports from Friday that mentioned the two sides walked away from an agreement.

This is a big of a strange situation that included a tweet from Herring (located below) announcing a deal with Dallas.

Todd Archer mentioned that he has heard the Cowboys reneged on the deal.

He passed the physical but they think he may be an injury risk,” George Mavrikes told Archer in an e-mail. “He is healthier than 90% of the league. He hasn’t missed a game or a practice the last two years and maybe missed five or so games in seven years, four because of a hamstring in his rookie year. They need solid players like him. Fairly priced, never an issue off the field, can play (outside linebacker), was special teams captain, plays great against the pass and most of all, doesn’t get hurt, which is why they said they want out of the deal they agreed to. It’s crazy and makes no sense.”

Herring, 30, spent the past three seasons with the Saints, but primarily served as a backup linebacker and special teams player.

Last year, he appeared in all 16 games and totaled 14 tackles and an interception.


Todd Archer of reports that the Cowboys and LB Will Herring have made the decision to “walk away” from their one-year contract agreement.

  • According to Archer, Herring never actually signed the deal, despite posting the tweet below, and the team never made a formal announcement.
  • Archer adds that the decision was not related to a failed physical.

Herring goes back on the market.


Former Saints LB Will Herring announced via his twitter account that he’s signing with the Dallas Cowboys.
