We keep saying that the NFL route building business is a 24/7/365 endeavor. Stephen Jones and Will McClay, along with their staffs, are constantly looking for new players to bring in. The coaching staff is constantly looking at the bottom of the list and finding players who need to go. Today for the Cowboys, those two things came together as the team swapped a wider receiver from the bottom of the list for a free agent who has actually spent time in Dallas before.
The Cowboys have signed wide receiver Reggie Davis and released Stephen Guidry, who had missed parts of the OTA and minicamp with an injury. Davis was with the Cowboys in 2018-19. Guidry signed with the Cowboys as a UDFA in 2020, but did not pick last season.

The wide receiver Reggie Davis played college ball in Georgia and was scrapped in 2017. He has jumped around to a few NFL teams, including a previous period with the Cowboys in the 2018-19 training team. Most recently, he was with the Bears in their training team.
Stephen Guidry was an unnamed free agent from Mississippi State who actually opted out of the Cowboys 2020 season after he was signed. As mentioned, Guidry was injured and lacked time, so the team decided to move on.
Expect more minor moves like this as the Cowboys try to get their roster just before heading out to Oxnard. Of course, they can still surprise us by spreading a “name” free agent before training camp, or they can wait until closer to the season to make such a move.
