Cowboys Cut Three Players

The Cowboys released cornerback Dwayne Goodrich, offensive lineman Jeremy McKinney and running back Robert Thomas on Thursday afternoon. Goodrich, orginally a second round draft choice in 2001, was charged with two counts of manslaughter just last month.

The Dallas Cowboys cut three players today, none of which came as a major surprise. Fullback Robert Thomas, offensive lineman Jermey McKinney, and cornerback Dwayne Goodrich were all waived by the team earlier this afternoon.

Robert Thomas played in 15 games for the team this past season after suffering a high ankle sprain that limited his effectiveness earlier in the year. Rookie fullback Jamar Martin, who was sidelined in training camp with a knee injury last year, will compete with Jason McKie for the starting job in 2003.

Meanwhile, Jeremy McKinney started two games as an offensive tackle this past season but saw his season come to an end after having angioplasty to fix a narrowing of one of his arteries.

And Goodrich, who has been nothing short of a disappointment since being drafted in the second round of Tennessee two years ago, was released after suffering through one of his worst years on the field.

He also was charged with two counts of manslaughter in connection with the hit-and-run deaths of two men last month on a Dallas freeway.
