Houston Texans explains why Houston had a silent trade deadline…

Cowboys Tight End Among Players Poached at NFL Trade Deadline.

The latest Dallas Cowboys news shows the team’s roster has some appeal across the league as the franchise lost two players on the NFL trade deadline. Tight end Eric Saubert was claimed by the Texans. Guard Chris Glaser is now on the Jets. These transactions took place on October 31, 2023, the same day as the trade deadline.

Both players were on the Cowboys practice squad, and NFL rules allow opposing teams to sign individuals if they get a spot on the 53-man active roster. Dallas filled one of these vacancies by signing veteran offensive lineman Dakoda Shepley.

“Less than one week after signing Eric Saubert to the practice squad, during the team’s bye week, and using his first elevation to the active roster in Week 8 against the Los Angeles Rams, the veteran tight end has been poached by the Houston Texans,” the Cowboys website detailed. “He must now remain on their active roster for a minimum of three games.

“The same is true of offensive lineman (guard) Chris Glaser, who was also poached, though he’s heading to the New York Jets, effective immediately. To replace Glaser, the Cowboys re-signed Dakoda Shepley to the practice squad — ensuring insurance for the offensive line.”
