Dallas Cowboys: 3 players who’s bubbles are about to burst
It’s that time of the year when the Dallas Cowboys have to make the tough decisions on roster spots. It’s time to cut players on the roster bubble.
Every team has to go through it. Cutting a player they wish they could keep but can’t really find a place for them on the team.
This year the Dallas Cowboys have quite a few players on the roster bubble whom will have their bubbles burst soon. Here are a few of those players.
Wide Receiver – Deonte Thompson
Deonte Thompson’s inability to make it on to the field with an Achilles injury really put him behind the eight ball. With the emergence of Lance Lenoir as a pass catcher and his ability in special teams, it makes Thompson expendable. It also doesn’t help that he is the oldest receiver on the team and on a one year deal. I don’t think his history with Sanjay Lal is going to save him.
Running back – Darius Jackson
Darius Jackson is a player I hated to see go back in 2016 and it seemed like the Dallas Cowboys did too when they brought him back. Unfortunately for Jackson, he was brought back to a Cowboys team with three very capable running backs ahead of him. Jackson has shown flashes in his preseason appearances but it won’t be enough to unseat Bo Scarborough from that third running back spot.
Offensive Tackle – Chaz Green
The Chaz Green experiment with the Dallas Cowboys has finally come to an end. Green started off the preseason battling dehydration issues and when it was game time he was unable to keep any defenders in front of him. With the recent addition of offensive lineman Parker Ehinger via a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs and Green’s inability to pass protect makes this roster cut pretty easy.
Now all of these players may prove me wrong and may have shown the coaches enough in the final preseason game to save themselves. If not look for the Cowboys to try trading these players before they cut them.
Who do you think will have their bubble burst this weekend?
