Thursday sports update, 3/24

It was being widely reported earlier in the week that the Dallas Cowboys had signed free agent cornerback Patrick Robinson to a two-year deal.

It’s now coming out that he switched agents in the middle of negotiations and called off the deal he made with Dallas, and is now signing with the Indianapolis Colts, leaving Dallas still desperately in need of defensive back help.

The NFL approved seven changes to league rules at this week’s owners’ meetings. Among them are making the extra point change from 2015 permanent; making all chop blocks at any time illegal; and changing the touchback to the 25-yard line instead of the 20.
