Cowboys rookie Coale wants to show up big not only at receiver against Dolphins, but also special teams

Danny Coale said Wednesday’s game is a big chance for him to show what he can do not only at receiver, but also on special teams. He figures he must make sure he is valuable in that area as the Cowboys prepare for the final cut on Thursday.

“I’m ready to do some special teams,” he said. “That’s where I think I’m really good, where as a rookie I can contribute. I’m going to have to be able to show up there and contribute there.”

Coale played in his first preseason game Saturday night against St. Louis, catching one pass for eight yards but did not play any special teams.

He said he will probably play on kickoff coverage and return and maybe punt return against Miami.

Coale played 82 snaps on special teams as a senior at Virginia Tech last year, including 13 punts and four punt returns for coach Frank Beamer.

“That was something Coach Beamer always preached,” Coale said. It was never an afterthought. It was at the forefront of our minds. It was something we really understood. Good special teams really can contribute to winning or losing ballgames. I understand the importance of it. There are a lot of great plays to be made.”
