In order to make a 53-man roster, the Dallas Cowboys are tasked with cutting down their roster in one day. Here’s an updated list of those getting cut.
It was recently announced that the Dallas Cowboys were valued at $8 billion, yet the storied Texas team hasn’t won a Super Bowl since 1996.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been looking to change that for quite some time, as has the entire Dallas organization. That being said, the Cowboys are pressure to make the right moves on Aug. 30 as they whittle down their roster to just 53 men.
Some will return back on the practice squad, some may be plucked for greener NFL pastures, and some may lose their last opportunity in the league. Roster cuts are often not the end for NFL-caliber players, yet nonetheless, here is some clarity on who the Cowboys have decided to part ways with — for now.
