They are the names and faces that haunt NFL coaches and scouts for years. Those players who are traded or released to help their teams make their final 53-man roster. For the Dallas Cowboys, a couple of those names from the past are wideouts Jimmy Smith and Danny Amendola. Both players excelled almost immediately on other teams after being released by Dallas. For Smith, it was the Jacksonville Jaguars. And for Amendola, it was the St. Louis Rams. Now it’s All-World quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots who are benefiting from one of the worst cut decisions Dallas has ever made.
Over the weekend, a new batch of players were released by the Cowboys staff. All in an attempt to trim and improve their roster prior to the start of the NFL regular season this upcoming weekend. Those players are: QB Alex Tanney, RB Kendial Lawrence, WR Anthony Armstrong, WR Tim Benford, LB Thaddeus Gibson, LB Taylor Reed, CB Sterling Moore, S Jakar Hamilton, T Edawn Coughman, T Demetress Bell, CB Xavier Brewer, DT Jerome Long, DE Jabari Fletcher, LB Caleb McSurdy, LB Cameron Lawrence, G Ray Dominguez, WR Danny Coale, DE Jason Vega, CB Micah Pellerin, LB Brandon Magee and C/G Kevin Kowalski.
For Tanney, Benford, Hamilton, Lawrence, Dominguez, Coale Vega and Pellerin; their journey with the Cowboys hasn’t quite ended. They were all placed on Dallas’ practice squad. But for the others, they will either be picked up by another team or they have played their final game as an NFL player already. And you can included DT Sean Lissemore and TE Dante Rosario to that group as well. Both were traded this week to make room for the addition of two unknown special teams players.
