  Cowboys | Roster cut down to 53-man limit    Sat Sep 5, 06:22 PM

The Dallas Cowboys have released G Travis Bright, S Courtney Brown, QB Rudy Carpenter, TE Scott Chandler, FB Julius Crosslin, DE Marcus Dixon, LB Tearrius George, G Ryan Gibbons, CB Jeremy Haynes, WR Jesse Holley, WR Mike Jefferson, WR Manuel Johnson, CB Mike Mickens, WR Willie Reid, DE Derreck Robinson, FB Asaph Schwapp, DT Jonas Seawright, S DeAngelo Smith, WR Isaiah Stanback, LB Matt Stewart and CB DeAngelo Willingham. RB Keon Lattimore (undisclosed) was waived injured.

Footballguys view: Stanback isn't a surprise cut, he struggled with injury his entire time in Dallas. He is a very talented player, and the former Washington Huskies quarterback is also a versatile player that could play a little Wildcat QB if necessary.

  Cowboys | M. Johnson, Mickens in danger of being cut    Thu Sep 3, 06:48 PM

Clarence E. Hill Jr., of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports Dallas Cowboys WR Manuel Johnson and CB Mike Mickens are in danger of being released from the team.

Footballguys view: Johnson was one of Sam Bradford's many weapons at Oklahoma before the Cowboys took him in the seventh round. He looked like a raw route runner to us at the Shrine Game and Senior Bowl, but he is quick with decent speed. He should be at least a practice squad candidate even if the Cowboys cut him.

  Cowboys | Hope Mickens will develop into solid nickel CB    Fri Jun 5, 08:24 PM

Mac Engel, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports the Dallas Cowboys hope CB Mike Mickens will develop into a solid nickel cornerback.

Footballguys view: Mickens is a gambler, and a player in the mold of a young Dre Bly. He shows good explosion in all of his movement, and has the footwork and hip swivel to turn and cover. Mickens plays with a ton of confidence but lacks the bulk and strength to get physical with bigger receivers.
