5 Cowboys Who Could Just Miss Cowboys’ Final Roster
At DMN, I just posted a list of five Cowboys who could be “surprise” cuts. None of them are really enormous shockers, simply because I don’t anticipate the Cowboys doing anything too wild in the coming days. Nonetheless, I think most people have Marcus Spears, Danny Coale, and Matt Johnson making the roster.
4. WR Danny Coale
I really don’t think the Cowboys can retain seven receivers, which means that Coale and Andre Holmes are probably battling for a roster spot. I broke down Holmes after the Cowboys’ preseason opener, and his potential (and size) is something I don’t think the Cowboys will pass up.
5. S Matt Johnson
Letting go of a fourth-round pick is always a surprise, but Johnson simply hasn’t been on the field enough to keep around. Instead of trying to get Johnson onto the practice squad, though, you might see the Cowboys place him on IR. That would end his season, but if the team is confident in Barry Church (as they should be), placing Johnson on IR would allow the Cowboys to keep him for 2013 without burning a roster spot on him.
