Dallas Cowboys Trim the Roster, Final Cuts made



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:

Travis Bright

Courtney Brown

Scott Chandler

Julius Crosslin

Marcus Dixon

Tearrius George

Ryan Gibbons

Jeremy Haynes

Jesse Holley

Mike Jefferson

Manuel Johnson

Keon Lattimore

Mike Mickens

Willie Reid

Derreck Robinson

Asaph Schwapp

Jonas Seawright

DeAngelo Smith

Isaiah Stanback

    LOL shocked that Holley got cut? I’m not. Worthless ass T.V. series, hopefully will be cancelled after one season.

    Glad Stanback is gone as well, and forgot who was at center last night, but he needs to work on his chemistry with both Romo and Kitna, cuz that was horrible.

  • J.Hill

    Wow ! I really thought that Holley would have made the team.I still do not understand why he did’nt.But besides that little bit of disapointment,I believe this is our year ! Mark it down take it to the bank the Cowboys will win the Super Bowel this year. You can disgree if you chose you will see.,,,

  • Jerry Jones

    Don’t take it to the bank, my checks have already bounced so many times.

  • Joe C

    hahahahaha ^^^^^^

    Joe C…..

    You have shown yourself to either be a fool, blind, or a non Cowboys fan. If your bitterness is centered around the fact that the correct person didn’t win the competition on 4th and long, then i can forgive the outburst. Hawkins had more heart than anyone and would have made this team guaranteed, but Michael bowed to the “boss” and went stereotypical and picked Hollet. Somewhat surprised that Holley missed, but the show is good. Get the JJerk out of it other than the checkbook signing and we have have a winning show.

  • Jonathan

    Count me as one who only would have been surprised of Holley made the team. Considering that team’s normally keep 5 to 6 receiver’s, Holley would have had to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was better than Ogletree, Crayton, Austin, Hurd, and/or Roy William’s to make the team. You could argue that he wasn’t given much of a chance, but I think part of the problem was Holley’s body was already experiencing what player’s start to endure November and December because he had been training hard since the early part this year. Given that issue, if this show continues, I truly doubt anyone ever actually make’s the team the 1st year. They likely all will be considered practice squad canidates from the get go.

    But as reality show’s go, this one probably has one of the better pay off’s. If I’m not mistaken, practice squad guy’s still make 6 figures. Not bad for a guy who was selling cellphones just 9 month’s ago.

  • Bryan Martin

    Here’s the deal, the show is an american idol of sorts. It provides someone a chance to shine and they have to do it. There is no way a guy will come in and show up the talent that was there, though he did have a few good plays, he also had a few bad plays. I know we pull for the underdog but this time, this instance the underdog wasn’t the hero. He deserves to be on the practice squad for sure but in the line up? no chance my friends.

  • Morriscoker2002

    Holley Cut?? way to go Cowboys you F-ed up again.. you should drop Hurd like a bad apple and put Holley on he is the Real player that cares.. Hurd is just there for the money..

Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for 2018

Sean Martin



Dallas Cowboys to Re-Sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladoucer for 2018 1

Continuity is the key to good special teams play in the NFL. Already losing long-time Special Teams Coordinator Rich Bisaccia to the Raiders - who promptly snatched ST aces Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber in free agency - the Dallas Cowboys have announced their intentions to re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the 2018 season.

Returning on a one-year deal, the fan favorite Ladouceur will be back to do what he does best in cleanly executing almost every special teams snap for Chris Jones or Dan Bailey to handle.

Todd Archer on Twitter

Long snapper L.P. Ladouceur will re-sign with the Cowboys on Monday, according to sources, on a one-year deal. He will be in his 14th season with the franchise. Only Jason Witten, Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Bill Bates and Mark Tuinei will have more years of...

While Jones has improved as the Cowboys' punter with each passing season, Kicker Dan Bailey actually enters 2018 as another question mark on this unit. With the general belief around the team being that Bailey will be just fine moving forward, the Cowboys will no longer have to worry about who handles long snaps next year either.

Report: Raiders Sign Former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber

Kevin Brady



Cowboys Headlines - Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Linebacker Kyle Wilber

A Free Agency period filled with departures continued for the Dallas Cowboys today, as the Oakland Raiders have reportedly signed the now-former Cowboys LB Kyle Wilber.


The Raiders have signed LB Kyle Wilber:

Wilber has been with the Cowboys since 2012, and has played in all 16 games four of the past five seasons. Most of his time has come on special teams, but he did provide solid linebacker depth for the Cowboys since joining the team.

Dallas has now lost both Wilber and Anthony Hitchens, depleting their linebacker depth even further over the last couple weeks.

The Raiders have now signed two key special teams contributors for the Cowboys in Keith Smith and Kyle Wilber this offseason. Hopefully Dallas can replace these types of "replacement level" players throughout the rest of the offseason, especially during the NFL Draft.

Report: Cowboys Officially Release CB Orlando Scandrick

Kevin Brady



Orlando Scandrick

After requesting his release from the team just a few days ago, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has gotten his wish. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Scandrick has officially been cut by the Dallas Cowboys.

Josina Anderson on Twitter

I'm told the #Cowboys have informed CB Orlando Scandrick he will be released, per source.

This move will reportedly save the Cowboys roughly $1.4M against the salary cap, as we hope they finally look to make some moves during the Free Agency period.

Scandrick's release comes after an offseason in which the Cowboys totally overhauled the back end of their defense, specifically their cornerbacks. With the emergence of young, promising players such as Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis, and the health issues of the aging Scandrick, the move makes a lot of sense.

In fact, after the Cowboys drafted Awuzie in the second round of last year's draft it was rumored the Cowboys were looking to move Scandrick for extra draft picks. Instead, one year later, they have cut him to save some cap room.

Orlando Scandrick should have a market to find a new team elsewhere, but his time in Dallas has now come to a close.
