Rico Dowdle Staying With Cowboys

Monday, March 18, 6:29 PM

The Dallas Cowboys are re-signing running back Rico Dowdle to an undisclosed deal on Monday. With Tony Pollard moving to the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency, Dowdle is now No. 1 on the Cowboys' RB depth chart, for now. The 25-year-old former undrafted free agent out of South Carolina entered the league in 2020 with the Cowboys and has just 96 carries for 385 yards and two rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons, adding 17 receptions (22 targets) for 144 yards and two more touchdowns through the air. Eighty nine of his career carries came in 2023, when he rushed for 361 yards and two TDs in 16 regular-season contests. Depending on what Dallas does at the position in the upcoming NFL draft, Dowdle could see a substantial role increase in his fourth NFL campaign.

Jaret Patterson News

Jaret Patterson Signing With Commanders Practice Squad

Tuesday, December 26, 2:50 PM

The Washington Commanders signed running back Jaret Patterson to the practice squad on Tuesday. Patterson signed with Washington after being undrafted in 2021 and rushed 85 times for 344 yards and two touchdowns in 20 games. He was released during final roster cuts ahead of the 2023 season and spent time on the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad until his release on December 20. Brian Robinson Jr. (hamstring), Jonathan Williams (concussion), and Chris Rodriguez Jr. (foot) are all banged up, so Patterson adds much-needed depth to the Commanders' RB room.
