    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. 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.

    A Big Picture View of Terrance Mitchell’s Move

    I can't think of any position group on any team that has received as much criticism and blame as the Dallas Cowboys secondary has over the past decade or so. Trust me, they've been easy to blame. The downfall of Terence Newman in 2011, the failed Alan Ball experiment in 2010, and even the (so far) disappointing career of Morris Claiborne are all examples which detractors will point to in order to prove the Cowboys secondary as inadequate. The thing is, the last couple of seasons, the Cowboys secondary hasn't been bad whatsoever. Last year, they ranked fifth in pass yards against in both per game and overall categories.

    Cowboys Secondary: Don’t Forget About These Two Corners

    On the surface, Cowboys Nation has plenty of reasons to still be concerned about the team's secondary. However, a closer look at the depth available for Rod Marinelli and Dallas to work with warrants some optimism for a unit that has been holding the Cowboys back for years. Deji Olatoye and Terrance Mitchell stepped in at the end of the 2015 season to see some significant playing time, and certainly made the most of it. In the game the Cowboys were mercifully eliminated from playoff contention at AT&T Stadium against the Jets in week 15, Mitchell recorded the first interception by a Dallas corner since December of 2014 in a win at the Bears. Olatoye stepped in to start the very next week against the Bills, and recorded an interception of his own against Tyrod Taylor in the end zone.
