Cowboys C/G Cory Procter Released
It may come as good news to a lot of you that the Cowboys will cut center/guard Cory Procter today. Procter had previously signed a free agent tender with Dallas, but the money was not guaranteed.
The move comes as a slight surprise, not due to Procter’s skill, but his versatility. With the ability to play center, we thought Procter had a great shot to make the squad. No other player on the Cowboys’ current roster has much experience at center (other than starter Andre Gurode, of course).
The ‘Boys could be in some trouble if Gurode gets injured. As of now, the primary candidates to win the #2 center job are Montrae Holland and Travis Bright. Holland recently signed a two-year deal with Dallas, and Bright spent last season on the practice squad.
We believe Holland’s previous struggles at center make Bright the favorite to take over backup duties behind Gurode.
It looks like the band “Free Reign” will have to find a new member.
