Cowboys running back Marion Barber, right guard Leonard Davis, wide receiver Roy Williams and kicker Kris Brown have been released by the Dallas Cowboys. This comes just one day after the 41/2 month NFL lockout ended.
Training camp for the Cowboys opens in San Antonio begins on Wednesday and Jones didn’t want them to bother showing up.
These cuts save the Cowboys an estimated $16.6 million. Leonard Davis makes $6 million, Roy Williams makes $5 million, Marion Barber makes $4.75 million and Kicker Kris Brown makes $910,000.00.
The Cowboys weren’t the only team to cut veteran players…The Baltimore Ravens released wide receiver Derrick Mason, tight end Todd Heap, running back Willis McGahee and Kelly Gregg, defensive tackle. According to sources the Ravens have cut $18.6 off their payroll.
After a 41/2 month lockout NFL players voted OK on a final deal today. This comes just days after the owners approved a tentative agreement.
Now the vote goes as a recommendation before 10 plaintiffs in Brady antitrust lawsuit. Sources are reporting that it is in agreement and they will sign off on it.
