Lance Lenoir, the all-time leader in just about every Western Illinois Football receiving category, has signed on with the Dallas Cowboys. Details of Lenoir's contract have not been released, but he will participate in the team's mini-camp this week in Frisco, Texas. The signing comes a month after the Chicago native participated in the Bears rookie camp, but did not latch onto the roster. 


Lenoir set school records with 273 receptions, 3,796 yards, 28 touchdowns, 14 100-yard receiving games, two 200-yard games and 41 consecutive games with a reception. The receptions mark is also a Missouri Valley Football Conference Record.
