Chauncey Washington RB DAL 4 years ago

The Cowboys failed to tender exclusive rights free agent RB Chauncey Washington, making him an unrestricted free agent.

A seventh-round pick by Jacksonville back in 2008, Washington bounced all over the league before landing on Dallas' practice squad in 2011. Reports that he was overweight last season suggest he may never get a chance to add to his five career carries.

Cowboys promoted RB Chauncey Washington from their practice squad.

It's a sign that the Cowboys might at least consider holding Felix Jones (hamstring) out of Saturday's 4PM game if the Giants beat the Jets at 1PM ET. Washington would then back up Sammy Morris against the Eagles.

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys plan to promote RB Chauncey Washington from the practice squad.

It's another bad sign for Felix Jones (hamstring), who has yet to practice this week. Jones may end up starting the game against the Eagles, but Washington and Sammy Morris would likely carry the load if the Giants beat the Jets in the early game.

Chauncey Washington may be called up from the practice squad with DeMarco Murray (ankle) out for the year.

The Cowboys lost Phillip Tanner (hamstring) to injured reserve last week, so Felix Jones is the only tailback currently on the active roster. Washington only has seven games of NFL experience in four seasons, but there's not much on the street at this point. He'd be strict insurance behind Jones.

Rams waived RB Chauncey Washington.

The 25-year-old was deemed expendable after St. Louis signed up Jerious Norwood and Cadillac Williams. Washington can play some special teams and contribute as a short-yardage back, but his future in the NFL is bleak at best.
