Hutchinson Officially Released

The Chad Hutchinson era in Dallas has officially come to an end as the Cowboys have announced that he has been waived after the organization failed to execute a last minute trade.

Chad Hutchinson, the former Stanford Cardinal and St. Louis Cardinals' baseball prospect, was informed earlier today that he had indeed been waived.

Hutchinson was sent to NFL Europe this spring to improve his game, but his development wasn't enough to keep him with the Cowboys.

Hutchinson played for the Rhein Fire where he completed 126-of-207 passes for 1,356 yards. He also threw 5 touchdowns, 4 interceptions and was sacked 25 times.

The Cowboys held off on making an announcement while a potential trade was being worked on to either Chicago or San Francisco. Once that fell through, Hutchinson was immediately waived.

Veteran signal caller Vinny Testeverde, rookie Drew Henson and Tony Romo are the quarterbacks that will now compete with Quincy Carter for the starting position next week in training camp.

After starting 9 games in 2002, Hutchinson threw just 2 passes in 2003 under first year head coach Bill Parcells. Overall, he leaves Dallas 128-of-252 passes for 1,563 yards, 7 touchdowns and 8 INTs.
