Part 3: Cowboys players who should go
IRVING, Texas -- Based on the results of this 6-10 season, Jerry Jones and Co. can use all the help they can get in renovating the Cowboys' roster.
While Jones is busy officially crowning Jason Garrett as coach, we'll get a head start.
We divided the players who finished the season on the Cowboys' roster or injured reserve into three categories, based on whether they should be Cowboys in September.
We continue with the players who should no longer be allowed to wear the star:
|RB Marion Barber
The Cowboys can save $2.75 million in salary-cap space by cutting a nonproductive player who caused problems for the coach. It's a no-brainer.
|OT Alex Barron
The joke in St. Louis after the Rams cut Bobby Carpenter was that they still got the best of that trade.
|OT Marc Colombo
It's a testament to his toughness that he overcame a devastating knee injury to have a productive career in Dallas. But he's just not physically able to be a quality starter anymore. The upgrading of the offensive line starts at right tackle.
|QB Chris Greisen
He was a one-week insurance policy.
|FB Chris Gronkowski
The Cowboys need a fullback whose forte is blocking. Stanford's Owen Marecic would be a nice fit if he's available in the fifth round.
|DE Jason Hatcher
He had plenty of opportunities to prove he could be more than a backup and never took advantage. There's no reason to re-sign him.
|LB Leon Williams
The Cowboys thought he could play any linebacker position. The reality is he can't play any well.
|WR Roy Williams
He'll never see eye-to-eye with Jason Garrett. It's worth taking a little bigger salary-cap hit to move on from a major mistake.
