Dallas Cowboys to Cut Marion Barber, Roy Williams and Others [Article]

July 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

If one thing is certain, it’s that the Dallas Cowboys sucked last season.  When things go wrong in Dallas, Jerry Jones gets angry.  When Jerry Jones gets angry, people lose their jobs.

It is being reported by ESPN and other sports outlets that Jones is cleaning house in Big D.  Among some of these players are starters running back Marion Barber, wide receiver Roy Williams and offensive lineman Leonard Davis.

Don’t get me wrong, I liked Barber and Williams.  The truth is that it is their time to go.  Roy has been around for a few years now and never lived up to his hype.  Marion gave us some good seasons but the once hard-hitting running back has seemed to have lost a step.  Luckily, Dallas can afford to lose Barber with Felix Jones and Tashard Choice still in the backfield.

A friend of mine who works for a sports agent in Colorado told me about the Leonard Davis releasing which will clear up some serious cap room ($6 million).  Davis is a huge part of the line, so I don’t know if I completely agree with the decision to let him go.  But as ESPN reported earlier, the Cowboys are $14 million over the salary cap.  Things have to change.

Here are some news outlets covering all of the madness going on in Valley Ranch right now:

I’ll update later if there are any other moves.  What do you think about these trades?  Will they make the Cowboys better or is it a mistake?
