The Cowboys released several players Sunday afternoon, bringing their roster down the NFL mandated 53 players.
Among the big names released were quarterback Anthony Wright, who was let go instead of Clint Stoerner, and Tim Seder, who lost his starting job to rookie kicker Billy Cundiff.
Other players released include free safety Rashidi Barnes, defensive tackle Willie Blade, cornerback Jason Bell, Jeremaine Copeland, running back Woodrow Dantzler, cornerback Pat Dennis, safety Keith Davis, punter Filip Filipovic, guard Jason Gamble, linebacker Orantes Grant, guard Al Jackson, deep snapper Trey Junkin, tackle Damon Nivens, running back Tony Taylor, fullback Derrick Harris, and running back Enis Haywood.
The release of fullback Derrick Harris means the Cowboys will only carry one true fullback into the season opener at Houston next Sunday.
Suprisingly, veteran cornerbacks Pat Dennis and Jason Bell were let go in favor of Duane Hawthorne and Dwayne Goodrich, two players who have battled injuries in their short NFL careers. Goodrich was the Cowboys top draft choice just two years ago out of Tennessee.
