The most relevant of the Cowboys’ cuts to date for the
After Game 3 of the preseason against the Seahawks, the Cowboys will now have to make corresponding cuts to bring the roster to the final roster of 53. In that case, some elements could find their way into the practice squad. But nothing is certain from now on. The players named below are no longer part of the team. Obviously, there are still plenty of players missing, as the Cowboys and all NFL teams have until Tuesday afternoon to release their final rosters.
The first of them was defensive end Markaviest Bryant. The defender had a sack in Game 2 of the preseason against the Chargers, but that wouldn’t be enough. So that’s it for the undrafted agent in the UCF Draft.
The Cowboys have waived former UCF DE Markaviest “Big Kat” Bryant, a person familiar with the decision has said. The team began to reduce from 80 to 53 players. Process to be done in several waves before Tuesday at 3 p.m. CT. Bryant recorded a sack against the Chargers in Game 2 of the preseason. pic.twitter.com/OgFL8ziJXZ

The same would happen with offensive tackle Amon Simon. Although he had a few shots in pre-season, everything seems to indicate that it was not enough to convince the technical staff. Another undrafted agent left out, but this time it’s from Texas A&M-Commerce.
During Sunday night, they learned of other moves, such as the release of another undrafted. In this case, it would be offensive lineman James Empey, who served not only at center but also at right guard. Thanks to this hack, that’s been it for the BYU rookie, at least so far.
The moves would continue and perhaps one of the biggest surprises of what happens between cuts. The organization would also leave receiver TJ Vasher out. Entering as an undrafted agent in 2021, the offense was looking for its place in the receiving corps. Admittedly, the kid looked pretty good in Oxnard’s training camp. However, this production could not be reflected in the pre-season clashes. Make only two receptions for a total of 20 yards.

Perhaps the biggest surprise, though that cut was for nothing more than his performance, was Field Marshal Ben DiNucci’s. As a seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft, he had a golden opportunity in a Sunday night game against the Eagles this season. The match would be lost by the Lone Star team 23-9, where all criticism pointed to DiNucci. Finish the duel with 21 completed passes in 40 attempts, for 180 yards and no touchdowns.
From then on, Ben has simply functioned as a fixture in the practice squad in 2021, and who knows if that will happen again this year. Although there were some improvements in his preseason, the backup quarterback duel will end up being Cooper Rush and Will Grier. Whoever loses could end up on the practice squad, unlike DiNucci.

Among other roster notes, we already know that receiver Michael Gallup could end up on the final roster of 53. Of course, that’s because he can train and putting him on the reserve would limit his activity. Plus, he would miss at least four games, and Dallas hopes that doesn’t happen.
They will look to do the same with James Washington, who broke his right foot in the early days at Oxnard. Although in the case of the latter, if the youngsters intervene, they could put him on injured reserve. Although he would miss a few games, there could be an opportunity for one of WR’s youngsters.
Of course, the 53-player roster as such is only a requirement as organizations make a few extra moves to possibly keep some players. For example, freeing up some specialists to give space on the list to others. The latter would find himself in injured reserve to have a more experienced team for the coming weeks. The clearest example would be James Washington, and we’ll see what they decide to do with Michael Gallup. On the defensive side, linebacker Damone Clark will clearly find himself on the reserve side, as we have been talking about for several weeks.
The rest of the cups are expected on Tuesday morning. We may have a few surprises, but the coaching staff will have to make very strong decisions to have the team that will face Tampa Bay for week 1. We are getting closer to the regular season, so a good performance is expected from the Cowboys for this week. year.
