The Dallas Cowboys announced Wednesday that they have promoted and signed former LSU defensive end Lewis Neal from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.


The Wilson, NC native played for LSU from 2013-2016 and was a two-year starter on defensive line for the Tigers. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

Neal was an undrafted free agent grab by the Cowboys this past spring.

Make the most of your opportunity, big man. That’s how stars are made. It sucks that someone has to get injured for you to get a shot, but that’s the way it works in the NFL. I don’t think Tom Brady has shed too many tears for Drew Bledsoe, has he? All you can control is what’s in front of you! Best of luck, Lewis!
