Jay Ratliff Done As A Dallas Cowboy; Organization Releases Him

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The 8-year run of Jay Ratliff in Dallas is done.

The Dallas Cowboys had been hinting about it for the past week and it turns out those NBC reports on Sunday Night Football were correct - Jay Ratliff is done as a Cowboy.

Per Nick Eatman:

Jay Ratliff is no longer a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

The team ended the year-long suspense for the defensive tackle on Wednesday, by officially terminated the contract of Ratliff, placing him on the failed physical list from Reserve/PUP (Physically Unable to Perform).

Jay Ratliff was at one time a great defensive lineman. He was a seventh-round pick who made the most of his chance in the NFL. He turned out to be a steal. He made the Pro Bowl four times. His burst off the ball was his biggest asset but he was strong enough to hold down his spot even when double-teamed. Then the injuries came and he wasn't the same player even when he could get on the field. It's sad that he didn't get a chance to play in this particular defense during his prime, it would have worked well with his skill-set.

Now, the defensive line at least knows for certain they won't be getting help from the Rat. We'll have more on his career in Dallas later.
