  • Takk McKinley: Cut by Dallas

    McKinley was released by the Cowboys on Friday, Dallas writer Patrik Walker reports.

    McKinley signed a one-year deal with Dallas in March, but he'll now look for another opportunity elsewhere ahead of the 2023 campaign. The linebacker appeared in four games with the Rams last season, recording one tackle while playing 21 snaps between the defensive unit and special teams.

  • Cowboys' Takkarist McKinley: Inks one-year deal with Dallas

    McKinley agreed to a one-year deal with Dallas on Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    McKinley was cut by the Rams in mid-October and signed a practice-squad deal with Dallas a month later. He didn't make any appearances for the Cowboys down the stretch, but he appears to have made enough of an impression in practices to get a chance to compete for a roster spot in 2023. The 2017 first-round pick recorded 16.5 sacks over his first three seasons in Atlanta, but he has just 3.5 across the past three campaigns.

  • Rams' Takkarist McKinley: Catches on with Rams

    The Rams signed McKinley off Tennessee's practice squad Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    McKinley appeared in 11 games for the Browns last year before tearing his Achilles in December. After returning to full strength, he worked out for a few teams this offseason but could only garner a practice-squad deal from the Titans. However, the former first-round pick will now get an opportunity to carve out a reserve role with the defending champions.

  • Takkarist McKinley: Works out for Dallas

    The Cowboys hosted McKinley (Achilles) for a tryout Saturday, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    McKinley's 2021 campaign with the Browns ended back in December due to a torn Achilles, so it's encouraging to see him already working out. Team owner/GM Jerry Jones said he "had a good visit with [McKinley]," and noted that the defensive end has "a chance to play this year." Jones said that a contract was discussed, but no agreement with McKinley has been reached.

    McKinley was carted off the field in Monday's matchup with the Raiders after suffering an apparent ankle injury and is considered questionable to return.

    McKinley's questionable tag is certianly optimistic, as he was seemingly unable to put any weight on his injured leg. Joe Jackson and Porter Gustin figure to see increased snaps if he is indeed unable to return.
