The Dallas Cowboys training camp in 1979 was in Thousands Oaks, Ca. Charles Green signed as a free agent running back in 1979 and injuried his left knee in training camp. He was on injuried reserved in 1979/80. Do you have any information to prove his claim.

Charles Green did sign with the Dallas Cowboys as a free agent running back.He played with the University Of Wisconsin as a quarterback from 1975-1978. He was told by Mike Webster a All-Pro center with the Pittsburg Steelers and alumni at University Of Wisconsin, if I played running back my entire career I would have been an All American. I Played running back in several games as a senior and gained 103 yards against Ohio State the number 1 defense against the run. I was told no running back had gain 100 yards against then in 3 years at that time.

My particular expertise is Dallas Cowboys history from 1960-1988 (the Landry era); I'm also a Cowboys book fanatic (I have almost 300 different Cowboys-related titles), and I also collect Cowboys football cards (but stopped in 93). But I am not an expert in the value of cards or collectibles – so please don't ask.

Before you ask: "So-and-so" almost certainly DID NOT PLAY for the Cowboys -- trust me! Before you ask me, ask the guy for proof!

Finally, I DO NOT ANSWER “PRIVATE” QUESTIONS! My work requires research, so the results must be made public.


I had a Cowboys webpage recognized around the Internet as the authoritative list of Cowboys links, and I have a Cowboys book collection second to none (approx. 300 titles). In addition to my book collection, I have every Cowboys media guide back to 1960, which makes researching questions much easier.
