Kerry Hyder has been limited to seven games over the last two seasons because of injuries https://www.dallascowboysfanshop.com/Rico-Gathers-Jersey
, but memories of his eight sacks in 2016 as a rotational player on the Lions defensive line led the Cowboys to bring him to town this offseason.If Hyder is able to return to that 2016 form, a return to the spot he played that season may have something to do with it. The Lions used Hyder as a defensive tackle last season, but the Cowboys have been playing him at defensive end and that was his primary spot during his big year in Detroit.It’s a move that gets a thumbs up from Hyder.“That’s home for me. It’s more natural for me — playing defensive end,” Hyder said, via the team’s website. “I get to use my athletic ability and get on the edge and rush the passer. That’s what I’m looking forward to doing Geoff Swaim Jersey

The Chiefs signed veteran tight end John Phillips on Monday, according to the league’s official transactions.Kansas City cut defensive back Dontae Johnson to make room for Phillips on the 90-player roster.Phillips, 31, played eight games for the Cardinals last season. He made three catches for 38 yards.The Cowboys made Phillips a sixth-round choice in 2009.
