According to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network, the Dallas Cowboys have signed USFL MVP KaVontae Turpin to their roster.

According to Aaron Dietrich, the sports director for KNOE 8, Turpin will sign a unique three-year contract with the Cowboys.

Turpin has been dubbed the "greatest unemployed return guy in the planet" by Sports Illustrated's Mike Fisher.

During the 2017 USFL season, Turpin has 44 receptions for 540 yards and four touchdowns for the New Jersey Generals.

The playmaker amassed 921 yards overall, including his outstanding contribution in the return game, and he also scored a rushing touchdown.

Turpin distinguished himself throughout his time at TCU, recording 145 receptions for 1,748 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Following an assault arrest in October 2018, the receiver was expelled from the TCU programme.

In April 2019, Turpin entered a plea of guilty to abusing his longtime girlfriend.

Turpin was undrafted in 2019 perhaps as a result of the wideout's off-field problems.

It will be fascinating to see whether Turpin can carve himself a role in the Dallas offense with some of the uncertainty the Cowboys have at wide receiver or if the speedster will only be used on special teams.
