Cowboys had to make these cuts



Are the Dallas Cowboys going to be a better team this season? We can only hope so, but after today's big-name cuts some people may wonder how the Cowboys can make up for losing so many starters.

Marion Barber's production dropped each year since he became starter and he is no longer a solid choice for the backfield rotation. As hard as this cut was for us fans, it was a necessary move.

Losing possibly two offensive linemen is a little bit surprising, but both Leonard Davis and Marco Colombo did very little to protect Tony Romo. The Cowboys did not have a solid offensive line and some rebuilding must take place, and it will. But this is scary territory, and I have no idea how the front line will look when Romo takes his first snap of the season.

Roy Williams's performance never matched what the Cowboys gave away for him and the result has been painful to endure. Another necessary move even though Williams had his best year as a Cowboys in 2010.

I would love to see the Cowboys get a No. 3 receiver who is known for his hands and clutch catches, such as Brandon Stokley or Lance Moore.

At safety, I would like to see the Cowboys go after Eric Weddle or Michael Huff.
