Cowboys finish making roster cuts before opener
AUG 31, 2013 5:13p ET
The players waived Saturday: Anthony Armstrong, Tim Benford, Demetress Bell, Xavier Brewer, Danny Coale, Edawn Coughman, Ray Dominguez, Thaddeus Gibson, Jabari Fletcher, Jakar Hamilton, Kevin Kowlaski, Cameron Lawrence, Kendial Lawrence, Jerome Long, Caleb McSurdy, Brandon Magee, Sterling Moore, Micah Pellerin, Tank Reed, Alex Tanney and Jason Vega.
The Cowboys also moved safety Matt Johnson to IR and shaved special-teams ace Danny McCray's salary in half from about $1.3 million.
The moves leave the Cowboys think at cornerback (where they only have four) and leaves room for the possibility of re-acquiring some of the above players for the practice squad. Magee and Tanney are among the candidates for those roles.
Meanwhile, Dallas is studying the players released from other squads in search of help in the defensive and offensive lines.
