OL Ryan Young
He started all 16 games at right tackle for the Jets back in 2001 and was instrumental in helping lead the team to 2nd ranked rushing offene in the league that year.
Young arrived in Dallas with high expectations. He suffered through an injury plagued year in 2002 with the Houston Texans, playing in just 7 games after suffering a preseason groin injury.
When the Cowboys signed him to a 3-year deal last spring, it was thought that he could possibly become the long term solution to take the place of Solomon Page at right tackle.
For the first 7 games of 2003, it looked as though that was going to happen.
Young started 6 of the first 7 games of the year, but a knee injury allowed him to start in just two of the remaining 9 games on the schedule.
The move will end up saving the Cowboys approximately $840,000 toward the salary cap.
Young was due a $200,000 roster bonus later this week.
