Cowboys hope to keep Mexican Isaac Alarcon on final roster for regular season
Mexican defensive lineman Isaac Alarcon is in a "now or never" situation in his bid to play in the NFL. His stint as an international tag player is over, and while he is currently one of 90 players training with the Dallas Cowboys for the 2023 season, he is now faced with earning a permanent spot on the final 53-man roster or perhaps on the practice squad or he will have to leave the team.
Alarcon just made the transition to defensive tackle, at the urging of coordinator Dan Quinn, after training for the previous three years as an offensive lineman. It's actually his natural position since his time as a collegiate player in the Mexican high school league.
"I am adapting more and more and I feel more comfortable in my new position. I know there is still a lot to work on. The Cowboys are giving me a great opportunity, I'm having fun and thank God, things are going well," said the Mexican player at the last practice of the mandatory minicamp for all players.
