More Roster Moves Tuesday

The Cowboys release Love, Rector, and Van Hoy on Tuesday.

The Cowboys released three players on Tuesday in an effort to get closer to the 53-man regular season roster limit.

Linebacker Reggie Love, defensive tackle Chris Van Hoy, and wide receiver Jamaica Rector were all cut.

Love, a former wide receiver in college that was moved to defense, figured to be a long shot to make the team, but was an athletic defender with decent speed during training camp.

Rector was the second of two wide receivers released this week. The Cowboys also cut former TCU standout Reggie Harrell.

Chris Van Hoy actually played on both sides of the ball during training camp, spending time as a defensive tackle and an offensive guard, but it wasn't enough to keep him from being released.

All three players were undrafted free agents.

Dallas also added the services of another kicker to compete with Jose Cortez for the starting job on Tuesday. Former Maryland standout, rookie Nick Novak, was claimed off waivers.

Novak finished his four-year career at Maryland as the ACC's all-time leading scorer. He is also tied for fifth in NCAA Division I-A history with 393 career points.
