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.

Cowboys bring back Butler as 7th wide receiver

Brice Butler, who spent parts of three seasons with Dallas, signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Coach Jason Garrett said adding a seventh wide receiver was "just to be deeper there. If he's available, he's someone we like."

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. He was a fourth-round pick in 2013 and has eight touchdown passes and seven interceptions in 19 games (five starts).

Cowboys' Prescott rises to 'challenge' vs. Giants

Dak Prescott avoided mistakes in the Cowboys' win over the Giants, going without an interception and was not sacked, days after Giants safety Landon Collins said their plan was to take Ezekiel Elliott out of the game in order to pressure Prescott.

Jerry Jones knows how big the Cowboys' 20-13 win against the Giants was even if it was Week 2. Jones knew the Cowboys had to avoid an 0-2 start. "It was on the line tonight," the owner and general manager said. "This was a big game for us. Not any more for (Dak Prescott) but it was on the line tonight."

The Cowboys offense tailed off after a fast start but the defense was able to limit Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. for almost the entire game in a 20-13 win against the New York Giants. The Cowboys avoided the dreaded 0-2 start and actually find themselves atop the NFC East standings with a division win.

The Cowboys offense finally with a time-consuming drive that ends with an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown run. A 14-play, 82-yard drive that chewed up 8:23 to push the lead to 20-3. Prescott with some key passes. Elliott with some tough runs. That's a winning type of drive.

The early talk in the first half was the Cowboys' aggression to open the game with a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the third play, but the Cowboys have a 10-0 lead because of what the defense has done through two quarters. Eli Manning has been sacked four times (Taco Charlton, Kavon Frazier, Antwaun Woods, DeMarcus Lawrence) in the first half. Since 2013, the Cowboys have not had more than three sacks in a game of Manning. The Giants have 79 net offensive yards.
