Brice Butler said he was first contacted about a return to the Cowboys the day after the season-opening loss to Carolina while he was shopping for fans for his new house in Arizona. Two teams scheduled workouts with him last week but he wanted to return to the Cowboys. He said he has not had any discussions about a role in his return but the offense remains the same from when he played here from 2015-17. “If you've got an old girlfriend,” Butler said, “you know what she likes.”

To make room for Brice Butler, undrafted rookie safety Tyree Robinson has been waived, which is a sign the Cowboys believe starting safety Xavier Woods will be able to make his season debut Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Woods missed the first two games with a hamstring injury suffered in the preseason.

In a bit of a surprise, the Brewers announced a player development contract with the San Antonio Missions, which will become Milwaukee's Triple-A team starting next season. San Antonio has long been a Double-A team but is moving up a level. The surprise is that industry chatter had San Antonio matching up with the Texas Rangers.

Dak Prescott isn't ready to predict an 11-game winning streak, but he sees parallels to the Cowboys' 2016 start with a loss in the opener and a win in Week 2, like the Cowboys have done in 2018. “From the vibe of this team, it feels a lot like the 2016 team,” Prescott said after filming a Campbell's Chunky Soup spot with the football team at Frisco, Texas' Lone Star High School. “Just that chemistry, that the guys want to be around each other, guys hanging out in the locker room, going to dinner with each other. We have a team that has each other's back and when you have each other's back and stick together the way we are, we've got a chance to do what we want.”

Through two games, the Cowboys have allowed 29 points. The last time they gave up that few in their first two games of the season came in 1996 when they lost 22-6 in the opener to Chicago and shut out the New York Giants, 27-0, in Week 2.

Among the players working out for the Cowboys today at The Star are wide receiver Brice Butler, who spent parts of three seasons in Dallas, and quarterback Landry Jones, who was among the final cuts of the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to sources.
