After going undrafted, New Hampshire tight end Scott Sicko decided he was going back to grad school. He said he took that as a sign that he was done with football. But three days later, after the Cowboys convinced Sicko he had a chance to make their roster, Sicko decided to give the NFL a try.
"After Scott initially made the decision to not play, the Cowboys, as well as other teams, continued to have active dialogue with me and also with Scott," said J.R. Rickert, Sicko's agent. "We are grateful that the Cowboys made this opportunity possible for Scott and he is 100 percent committed to joining them."
Sicko, 22, will be at Valley Ranch for the team's minicamp this weekend.
He caught 57 passes for 725 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
