Draft Scout Phillip Tanner News
12/17/14 - RB Phillip Tanner was signed to a contract Wednesday.

10/22/14 - RB Phillip Tanner was signed off Dallas' practice squad and added to the Bills' 53-man roster to serve as a third RB and to play special teams. He will probably fill some of the kicking game duties of Dixon, who figures to have more time on offense.
08/27/14 - RB Phillip Tanner was signed by the Cowboys Wednesday to handle most of the load in the final preseason game.
Tanner played for Dallas the past three seasons but got just 12 yards on nine carries last year. After the season, the Cowboys elected not to re-sign Tanner as a restricted free agent. He spent some time with the Indianapolis Colts this offseason and training camp before being waived on Aug. 20.
Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are competing for the third spot on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar, but Randle has an oblique injury and Williams is fighting a groin issue.
Tanner, who made the Cowboys' roster as an undrafted free agent in 2011, also will see time on special teams on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.
