What's left of the Cowboys free agents
|Nate Newton joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett to discuss the Cowboys' fascination with their players, what it's like to be released late in your career, why Tony Romo isn't worth elite quarterback money and Doug Free's possible move to guard. |
Linebacker Victor Bulter. The team could bring him back as a possible candidate to play outside linebacker. He does make plays, but isn't consistent.
Cornerback Michael Coe. A late-season pickup who most likely won't return.
Defensive end Kenyon Coleman. An injury ended his season, but age, and the Cowboys' goals of using younger players at his position are more important than bringing him back.
Guard Derrick Dockery. He was a nice pickup in training camp, but the team will treat him like Coleman: find a younger player for his position.
Safety Eric Frampton. The unrestricted free agent did a nice job last season in spots and could return to add depth to the position.
Cornerback Mike Jenkins. It's doubtful he'll return. He felt disrespected by how the team treated him last season while he recovered from shoulder surgery.
Running back Felix Jones. Cowboys want durable players at this position and Jones hasn't been that.
Punter Brian Moorman. He was on the roster because of the knee injury to Chris Jones. Jones has recovered and Moorman will be elsewhere.
Wide receiver Kevin Ogletree. As the season progressed he lost playing time and might be with another team in 2013.
Safety Charlie Peprah. Cowboys should bring him back to add depth to the position. A physical presence.
Tight end John Phillips. It seems Phillips never took the next step in his development. Time to find another squad.
Linebacker Brady Poppinga. Batman won't be in Dallas/Fort Worth in 2013. He didn't make enough plays.
Linebacker Ernie Sims. Was a nice pickup in 2012, but Cowboys will go younger with the depth chart at linebacker.
Linebacker/Defensive end Anthony Spencer. The Cowboys have until Monday to franchise him and it appears doubtful they'll do it. Odds of him playing for somebody else, look better by the day.
Safety Danny McCray. He's a restricted free agent, so his return to get significant special teams snaps will continue.
Defensive end Brian Schaefering. Might be worth inviting back to training camp and seeing if he can push for a roster spot.
