Surprise cuts?
CB Terrance Mitchell- Rookie showed some promise but struggled recently in games.
LB Will Smith-Drafted in the 7th round but an injury slowed down his progress.
RB Ryan Williams- Good preseason performance but just not a spot for him I guess.

KEPT on Roster

Dallas elected to go with three QBs on the roster which means undrafted rookie QB Dustin Vaughan is on the roster.

This year Dallas kept a fullback Tyler Clutts

Undrafted rookie CB Tyler Patmon who played well in the Dolphins game, made the final roster.

  1. Guess Jason Garrett got his wish & they kept the FB Tyler Clutts–while releasing RB Ryan Williams. But cutting CB Terrance Mitchell leaves them thin at that position–especially until Orlando Scandrick serves his 4-game suspension.

    Also by cutting 4 LBs, that leaves them light at a position where they still haven’t resolved who their starters (& nickel players) are going to be. So we can look for some signings & trades for some more players that were cut from other teams…
