Cow­boys change re­ceivers

The London Free Press - - SPORTS -

The Dal­las Cow­boys are do­ing more shuf­fling at re­ceiver as they try to re­vive one of the NFL’s worst pass­ing at­tacks be­fore a crit­i­cal game at Philadel­phia. The Cow­boys waived one of their key off­sea­son free agent pick­ups, re­ceiver Deonte Thomp­son, while ac­ti­vat­ing Noah Brown off in­jured re­serve and pro­mot­ing Lance Lenoir from the prac­tice squad. The moves come two weeks af­ter the Cow­boys traded their up­com­ing first-round draft pick to Oak­land for re­ceiver Amari Cooper, who was solid and scored a touch­down in his Dal­las de­but. Dal­las is 29th in pass­ing and hasn’t been able to com­pen­sate for de­fences that fo­cus on stop­ping star run­ning back Ezekiel El­liott.
