The Dallas Cowboys, just like all NFL teams, must trim down their rosters to 53 players by this Saturday. The Cowboys roster currently stands at 75. That means, for the next two days, the fate of 22 players will be analyzed, argued over and ultimately determined in a conference room somewhere at Valley Ranch. And after a debacle of a game like the one the Cowboys just played against the Houston Texans on Thursday night, the cuts might just be a little easier to swallow.
The Texans ran over the Cowboys in the final preseason game last night, 24-6. It was a game with very few highlights on Dallas’ side of the ball. And for some players, it may just have been the final game of their NFL careers.
It is a difficult task to try and predict the Cowboys’ 53-man roster. There are just too many factors to consider for anyone outside of the system to accurately gauge such a thing. But based on my observations, the Cowboys current injury concerns and considering their lack of depth, i will try my best to create a final roster prediction for you.
Analysis: The Cowboys have too many injury concerns and lack of depth to justify keeping three quarterbacks on the team. Tanney now hits the waiver wire. If he isn’t claimed, he’s a definite candidate for the Cowboys practice squad. Tanney has proven in a short time with Dallas that he’s worth being groomed.
