Cowboys sign the tallest player in the NFL
At 6-foot-10, Skipper would be tied with former Chiefs tight end Morris Stroud as the second-tallest player in NFL history. The tallest player in NFL history was defensive tackle Richard Sligh, a 7-footer who played one season for the Raiders in 1967.
Skipper was a two-time All-SEC player who may have been drafted and certainly would have signed sooner if not for a blood condition. The Cowboys’ medical staff subjected Skipper to additional testing, and when the doctors cleared him, the Cowboys officially signed him.
It’s no surprise Jerry Jones was the one to sign Skipper–Jerry loves to sign guys from his alma mater, something he has done every year he has owned the Cowboys.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/cowboys-sign-the-tallest-player-in-the-nfl/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/3Jnlij7w.jpg?fit=900%2C600&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/3Jnlij7w.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Dallas CowboysNFC EastNFLRecent Posts#Cowboys,Arkansas Razorbacks,Dallas Cowboys,NFLThe NFL has a new tallest player after the 6-foot-10 Arkansas offensive tackle Dan Skipper signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted rookie free agent this week.
