The Dallas Cowboys are open to making some more roster moves. 

This is what ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins discussed in his June 20 blog: 

"The Dallas Cowboys, despite the moves made in free agency and the NFL draft, have holes. 

"The loss of middle linebacker Sean Lee to injury has placed Justin Durant into his spot and left some uncertainty at the two other linebacker positions. 

"Kyle Orton missed all of offseason workouts, and while coach Jason Garrett anticipates the backup quarterback's arrival at training camp, there are questions about that position. 

"So, is Garrett pleased with the roster as it stands now five weeks from the start of training camp?

"'It is what it is right now,' Garrett said Thursday. 'And we'll continue to make evaluations of individual guys, where they stack up, if they belong on the roster, who else is on the landscape and you're always trying to do that.' 

"Garrett created competition for the starter at left guard between Ronald Leary and Mackenzy Bernadeau. 

"It seems Bruce Carter (weakside linebacker) and Kyle Wilber (strong side linebacker) have emerged as starters. J.J. Wilcox has the lead at free safety, and there is good competition along the defensive line. 

"'I feel good about how guys came in and worked,' Garrett said. 'A lot of young guys got a lot of work over the course of OTAs and minicamp. A lot of veteran players worked hard, felt competition that's a good thing for our team and we want to continue to do that if that competition comes from within or comes (outside), it's our job to make sure we put the most competitive situation available out there on our roster and we'll continue to do that.'" 

In a separate development, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was thankful to the Cowboys players who took part in his celebrity baseball game on June 20, per The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota: 

"Playing for the Dallas Mavericks the last 16 years, Dirk Nowitzki understands the popularity of the Dallas Cowboys. 

"And that's why the 12-time All-Star and NBA champion appreciates some of the team's biggest stars being part of his Heroes Celebrity Baseball game Saturday at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco.

"In previous years, Nowitzki's annual game has included names like Charles Barkley, Terrell Owens and Mark Cuban. 

"This year, Nowitzki said the lineup is as good as it's ever been, thanks to the Cowboys. 

"'The Cowboys guys take it over the top,' Nowtizki said before taking some batting practice swings on Friday. 

"Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Terrance Williams and Jason Garrett are all expected on hand. Romo is the only one of the group not expected to participate. Coming off December back surgery, Romo is listed on the roster as a dugout coach. 

"'This year we're stacked,' Nowitzki said. 'When Dez Bryant decides to come and see Jason Witten wants to go and then Tony Romo wants to stop by, that's big. The Cowboys are huge here, so that means a lot to me and everybody here.'

"Owens and former Cowboys linebacker Bradie James are also expected to play."
