Dallas Cowboys Release Tashard Choice

Tashard Choice was cut to make room for Bruce Carter on the Cowboys roster.

According to a twitter message from Tashard Choice, the Cowboys have released the fourth-year running back.

I just want to say thanks to all the great dallas cowboy fans. My time in Dallas has come to an end and the best is yet come. God bless.

Various sources in the Dallas Media have confirmed this move, which the Cowboys made to make room on the roster for Bruce Carter.

Choice was a popular favorite among Cowboys fans for a long time, particularly after stepping up in his rookie season in 2008 for an injured Marion Barbar and Felix Jones, and rushing for 88, 91 and 90 yards in consecutive games against the Steelers, Giants and Ravens. That December, Choice rushed for 325 yards and two TDs, and added 163 receiving yards. But Choice never was able to replicate that performance, rushing for only 667 yards since, and has fallen out of favor with many fans and the coaching staff since.

For the 2011 season, Choice rushed for only 75 yards on 28 carries, had 71 receiving yards, and had two fumbles in his last two games. After the breakout performance of rookie running back DeMarco Murray as well as the strong showing of fellow rookie Phillip Tanner against the Rams on Sunday, the writing was on the wall for Choice - since Monday, Choice, an avid twitter user, had not tweeted a single message until today's announcement.

The Cowboys will now enter Sunday's game against the Eagles with only two running backs, as Felix Jones is still out with a high ankle sprain.

Here's wishing you better luck somewhere else, Tashard.
