Cowboys Practice Squad Moves: Russell and King Out, Make Room for Three Additions

    With just five days until their first regular season game of 2016, the are still finalizing the final spots on their roster's .

    , a fifth round pick by the team in 2015, was released days after clearing waivers and being signed to the practice squad following his initial release. Also released today was LB Deon King, who had his moments throughout before making an impact in the team's final game.

    The departures of Russell and King allowed the Cowboys to officially add another DE in Zach Moore, who I scouted right here, along with LB Jeremiah George, and T Keavon Milton. The Cowboys still have one spot left on their practice squad, with their three new additions bringing the total up to nine.

    Jeremiah George was most recently claimed and re-waived by the . Prior to that, the out of Iowa State spent most of 2015 on the practice squad – signed there via the , who drafted George in the fifth round in 2014 only to put him on their own practice squad later on.

    Milton was most recently with the as an . The out of Louisiana-Monroe has spent time with four teams since 2013, starting with the . The Cowboys' current depth at tackle is slightly concerning, with not comfortably grabbing hold of the swing tackle job this preseason.

    Now, Dallas has a tackle available on their practice squad, along with two defensive players that could potentially fill in holes as needed along a depleted front seven.

    I really like Moore, but man it really sucks to see Ryan Russell go. Had high hopes for him in the future here.
