Myers Released, McGee Signed

DT Michael Myers was released Tuesday to make room for TE Tony McGee. Myers' fate was likely sealed when Willie Blade and Daleroy Stewart began living up to expectations at defensive tackle.

Myers signed as a stop-gap solution in the offseason to replace the departed Brandon Noble because of his experience.

The Cowboys didn't know what they had in the previously disappointing Blade and Stewart. Both players are bigger than Myers and because they are playing up to their size and enormous potential, the Cowboys' run defense has been stout in 2003.

The Cowboys needed additional help at tight end after rookie Jason Witten broke his jaw in Sunday's 24-7 victory over Arizona. Tony McGee was re-signed after being let go during the final round of cuts before the start of the season.
