Less than 24 hours after their heartbreaking loss on Wild Card Weekend, the Dallas Cowboys signed a plethora of players to the Reserve/Future list.

The Cowboys signed offensive tackle Isaac Alarcon, linebacker Devante Boyd, tight end Ian Bunting, safety Tyler Coyle, quarterback Ben DiNucci, running back JaQuan Hardy and several others to futures contracts.

Dallas also signed wide receiver Robert Foster to a futures contract. The Alabama product has bounced around the league over the past few years, but clearly he showed enough on the practice squad to receive a new deal.

Foster, who went undrafted in 2018, started his career with the Buffalo Bills. He then had brief stints with the Green Bay Packers, Washington Football Team and Miami Dolphins.

The Cowboys signed Foster to their practice squad this past September.

Since entering the NFL in 2018, Foster has 32 receptions for 642 yards and three touchdowns. Most of his production took place in Buffalo.

The Cowboys already have more than enough talent at wide receiver, but they could lose Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson in free agency this upcoming offseason. With that said, it makes sense to retain wideouts like Foster for the 2022 season.
