And Brad Johnson is out of here!
The Dallas Cowboys released Johnson today after he spent the better part of 2008 under heavy scrutiny for his miserable performance during Romo’s injury absence.
The move frees up another couple of million for the Cowboys to use toward either extending Ware’s contract, signing new free agents, keeping some of their own free agents, and signing draft picks come May.
There is no question that Brad Johnson can no longer cut it as an NFL quarterback, and it’s expected that he’ll announce his retirement unless some team is becomes truly desperate for a quarterback.
Look next for a decision on SS Roy Williams. He is on the chopping block this weekend and could be cut as well to free up additional cap space. Williams has made it known that he’d be willing to move to linebacker and even restructure his contract to lessen his hit on the cap this year in order to stay in Dallas.
We’ll bring you more as it’s announced.
