Cowboys Roster Cuts Continue, Colombo To Stay?

Marc Colombo will have to take a pay cut but could stay with the Cowboys.
Marc Colombo will have to take a pay cut but could stay with the Cowboys.

Per a report from Todd Archer at, the Cowboys informed OT Robert Brewster, OG Travis Bright and LB Kelvin Smith yesterday that they were going to be cut. 

Obviously, these players are a lot further down the depth chart than Marion Barber, Roy Williams and Leonard Davis, who were all released yesterday. 

Brewster, a third round pick in 2009, spent most of last season on the practice squad and his release doesn't come as a surprise. Fellow practice-squadder Travis Bright had been contemplating retirement anyway and had not taken part in the team's player-led practices this season. Kelvin Smith was signed to the practice squad in December last year.

On a separate and perhaps more interesting note, it looks like Marc Colombo could return to the Cowboys on a reduced contract after he is officially released Thursday:

Colombo has expressed an interest in staying with the team and after a meeting with Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones it was revealed he could with a reworked contract. Before Colombo's meeting with Jones, the team had told his agent, Jimmy Sexton, he was going to be released.
