Baylor’s Rico Gathers Reportedly Makes Dallas Cowboys’ 53-Man Roster

Baylor Basketball’s success in the NFL continues!

After a standout preseason cut short by a concussion, word is that the former Baylor Basketball player-turned-NFL TE Rico Gathers has made the 53-man roster for the Dallas Cowboys. Gathers took to Twitter shortly after the news started to circulate.

I think I can speak for everyone here at ODB when I say how thrilled I am to see the next step in Rico’s dream come true. I’ve seen it posited that the Cowboys may now put him on the IR due to the concussion to make room for another player, but that’s yet to be seen. Regardless, he’s a true-blue NFL player now, and I can’t wait to see him in action!

Congrats, Rico! Baylor Nation is proud of you!
