It was just a month ago the Dallas Cowboys seemed to be giving the disappointing Jacob Rogers another chance at right tackle.
"Need," owner Jerry Jones said at the time. "I want to give us every shot. We've got a lot invested in him. I want to give us every shot to get that value, and in that case, it gives him that kind of shot, too."
It now appears Jones has had a serious change of heart.
Rogers, a second round pick from the 2004 draft who never played an offensive snap in his two years in Dallas, was released by the Cowboys Friday.
He missed last season after going against the team's advice and undergoing microfracture surgery on his right knee. He also missed his entire rookie season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
An All-American left tackle for Southern California, Rogers was selected by Dallas with the 52nd pick in the 2004 NFL draft.
