Roster Moves: Cowboys Release Terrance Mitchell; Waive Brandon McGee

The world of the Dallas Cowboys is always spinning, even in June, and on Friday the spin spun out two members of the roster.

Cowboys just announced they’ve released Terrance Mitchell. Also waived/injured CB Brandon McGee.

As it is indeed June the roster moves (like the ones Staff Writer Sean Martin wrote about here) aren’t ever that surprising to Cowboys Nation. For what it’s worth the waiving of Brandon McGee, no offense to him, falls in that category.

The release of Terrance Mitchell has a lot of people scratching their heads, though. Mitchell played fairly well in the final games of the 2015 season, and it was just recently that he was actually being worked out at the Safety position.

It was during the game against the New York Jets on December 19th, 2015 that Mitchell recorded the first interception by a Dallas Cowboys corner since Orlando Scandrick’s against the Chicago Bears on December 4th, 2014. It isn’t a stretch to say that he played well once being called upon late last season.

The Cowboys seemingly have a lot of depth at the corner position given the return of Orlando Scandrick, the re-signing of Morris Claiborne, the re-structuring of Brandon Carr, and the drafting of Anthony Brown. Terrance seemed to be a perfect fifth man, but maybe the corner who had an interception the week after that Jets game, Deji Olatoye, has impressed the staff more than we all know.

Perhaps it was writing on the wall regarding Terrance’s ultimate demise that the Cowboys worked out Mitchell at Safety and kicked the tires on Brandon Boykin this week. It certainly didn’t bode well for Mitchell’s case that the Cowboys let 1st Round Rookie Ezekiel Elliott just have his #21.

Regardless the large contingency of Cowboys Nation is still puzzled by this move.

I like long walks on the beach, mystery novels, no just kidding those suck. The Dallas Cowboys were put on this earth for us all to love and appreciate. I do that 24/7/365. I also love chicken parmesan. Let's roll.
