And here we go! The preseason is officially over! We know this because the final cuts have been made and may I just say I nailed on particular point? Isaiah Stanback has seen his last day as an active member on the Dallas Cowboys Football Team. His play has been less then mediocre and has been a complete bust, despite his athletic talent (which exists) he just couldn’t transition to the NFL.
Replacing Stanback will be the only undrafted rookie to make the team, Kevin Ogletree. Ogletree has turned enough heads and produced enough to deserve this spot. He has worked out and has been, dare is say, spectacular in his opportunities. Hats off to you Ogletree, I hope that you have a long and productive career in a Cowboys uniform!
Last tidbits that really had me amped about this final cut season was that Steve Octavien has made the team, a player that I really believe deserves a shot, and who has certainly proved it last night, he will be a good sub for Demarcus Ware. Also, some of our draft picks didn’t make the team, leaving us slightly slim at the cornerback position again… However keep in mind there are some people being released today (veterans) that could provide solid depth.
*Just for the record: I’m a bit bummed that Carpenter, Crosslin, and Mike Mickens didn’t make the team. I believe they all have good potential.
Here is a list of the players who have been cut:
