3 More Players to be Released

Three players from the Cowboys injured reserve list will be released.

The Dallas Cowboys will make three more cuts Thursday. All three players were on the team's injured reserve list:

S Derek Pagel (shoulder) - Pagel was signed by the Cowboys in Aug. 2005 after being released by the New York Jets. Oginally a fifth round selection out of Iowa in 2003, a shoulder injury prevented him from ever seeing the field in Dallas.

K Brett Visintainer (back) - Orginally signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent last April out of Fresno State. A back injury during training camp prevented him from competing for the starting kicker position.

DT Willie Blade (Achilles) - Blade suffered a season-ending injury in March 2005 participating in training camp for NFL Europe. Blade suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during practice during a drill in Orlando, Florida. He was scheduled to play for the Berlin Thunder after re-signing with the Cowboys last January.
