The Dallas Cowboys have finally filled that vacant roster spot, left with last week’s release of cornerback/special teams ace LeQuan Lewis, and they opted to stay in-house in doing so. The team promoted running back lance Dunbar to the active roster on Monday, and signed receiver Raymond Radway to the practice squad.
Radway, who nearly made the 53-man roster out of training camp in 2011 before suffering a compound leg fracture, worked out for Dallas last week. Dunbar, who has spent the first four games of 2012 on the practice squad, will bring some versatility to the active roster, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
“He’s a quick guy. He’s shown that he can be a good gunner and make some plays,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s very aggressive and active, so we want to give him a chance to do that. He’s also done some returning for us as well. So, just wherever he’s needed, we’ll give him some work in practice at different spots and see how he responds.”
