Around the league
Cowboys • Former New York Jets offensive lineman Brandon Moore backed out of a deal with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday and plans to retire.
The 10-year veteran called the team with a change of heart after agreeing to a deal Tuesday night, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. Dallas is looking for an experienced player at guard because of injuries to both of last year's starters.
Dolphins • Miami receiver Mike Wallace returned to practice Wednesday after being sidelined more than a week by a groin injury, and he expects to play in Friday's exhibition game at Jacksonville.
Saints • New Orleans lost receiver Joseph Morgan and defensive end Kenyon Coleman for the season because of injuries, depriving New Orleans of one of its top deep threats and a reliable veteran run-stopping lineman.
