Wide Receiver

In:

Dez Bryant

Miles Austin

Terrance Williams

Dwayne Harris

Cole Beasley

Out:

Anthony Armstrong

Danny Coale

Tim Benford

Analysis: For Benford and Armstrong, I think this might be a case where it came down to the final game for both of them. Regardless, the pressing needs in other areas force the Cowboys to go with only five wideouts. Both Armstrong and Benford could have made the final 53, but Beasley is simply too good to be leaped over. If they clear waivers, both could be scout team candidates. And time has just simply ran out on Coale. He was unable to ever stay healthy enough to really prove himself. It’s a sad ending to a story that started over a year ago in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

    Missed Kevin Kowalski somewhere.

      Thanks!

    hope matt johson stay inside of 53

  • Guest speaker

    Even with Ratliff off the roster (on PUP), there are 54 players.

    • Guest speaker

      Scratch that, I’m an idiot. There are 53.

  • JoeDaBeast

    I agree Cohen is just a “placeholder” until final cuts are made, but disagree on Bell. Let him go and let Armstrong be a vital Special Teamer and receiving option.

  • bobby havens

    Sterling Moore stays. He earned the 5th corner spot. I think that McCray is out n they only keep 4 safeties.

  • Ed

    Root in’ for Pellerin. Not sure why though.

  • ctcowboy1968

    I think we all knew the majority of the players making the roster. So it’s not a difficult task overall. No way they keep 11 OL. Matt Johnson should be cut. There is no room on the roster or PS for someone that is never available to play. I disagree that they need him. How could a team need a player that can’t even practice? Moore makes this team.

    How can they keep Danny McCray? The guy has been exposed as a serious liability in the secondary, and safety is too thin a spot on this roster to keep a guy who gets routinely burned in coverage…
    How do you cut Danny McCray? He’s one of the best core special teams players in the league, and the ‘Boys need all the studs they can muster for their woeful kicking game…
    Love to be a fly on the wall in these roster meetings to hear Kiffin and Bisaccia go at it.
