The Dallas Cowboys have signed CFL WR Quincy McDuffie to a future/reserve contract on Tuesday, according to his agent Brett Tessler.

  12. LS Zach Wood
  13. TE Rico Gathers
  14. WR/KR Quincy McDuffie
  15. WR Uzoma Nwachukwu

Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.

McDuffie, 26, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of UCF back in 2013. He was waived with an injury designation after a few months in Denver and the Broncos eventually cut him loose at the start of the regular season.

McDuffie later signed on with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for the 2014 season and spent two years with the team before he joined the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for this past season.

During his CFL career, McDuffie has caught 25 passes for 249 yards receiving and one touchdown over the course of 15 games. His largest contributions have come as a kick returner, as he totaled 1,212 yards on 45 attempts and two touchdowns. McDuffie also added another 341 punt return yards and a touchdown.

Nwachukwu, 26, originally signed on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M back in 2013. He was on and off of their practice squad for two years before he was waived at the start of the 2015 season and later signed to the Dolphins’ taxi squad.

Unfortunately, he lasted just over a week in Miami. It wasn’t until August of last year that the Seahawks signed him but his stay in Seattle was limited to a month.

Nwachukwu has yet to appear in an NFL game.
