08:21 AM ET 10.16 | The dream ride that Jesse Holley has been on for the last 18 months became even more real on Wednesday. The wide receiver, who has spent the last season and a half on the Cowboys' practice squad, has been called up to the 53-man roster this week. The Cowboys made room on the roster by releasing offensive tackle Robert Brewster, who could return on the practice squad if he clears waivers. Holley not only officially signed his contract on Friday, but he is expecting to play Sunday in Minnesota as a key member of the special teams. The winner of Michael Irvin's reality TV show 4th and Long, which landed him the 80th and final spot on the Cowboys' training camp roster back in 2009, Holley has continued to work his way up the ranks and now that hard work and desire has officially paid off.

Seriously. Wow, what a let down. I didn't feel good when the Rangers couldn't capitalize on those earlier innings. We left runs on bases. All NY needed was a toe in the door and they flung it wide open. Heartbreak.

Nope - that's why he was brought up. Special teams have been a mess.

One mess of many...
