Hillsdale's Holmes joins Cowboys Practice Squad

Former Hillsdale College wide receiver Andre Holmes may have had his shot at pro football with the Minnesota Vikings cut in training camp, but another team the Dallas Cowboys see enough potential in the 6'6" receiver that they have signed him to their practice squad for the 2011-2012 season.

Practice squads consist of 8 players who receive $5700 a week but are not part of the 53 man roster. Practice players may be cut at any time but they may also be called up by their respective teams or picked up and signed by another team at any time. If Holmes were to be signed by another team he would automatically count on that team's 53 man roster and be paid at rookie minimum for a minimum of 3 weeks.
