The Cowboys have released Sam Young to make room for Derrick Dockery. The official calculus goes: Montrae Holland was released to make room for Tony Fiametta at fullback, and Young is released to get Dockery on the roster. The Cowboys had an agreement with Dockery yesterday, but could officially sign him until they released Young. Supposedly they're looking at putting Young on the practice squad.
There was a lot of speculation that it was Martin Rucker who was going to be released, but Young makes sense, too. The Cowboys had gone heavy at offensive line for the 53 man roster, this brings them back to what was expected.
So now we are probably looking at the 53 man roster for week one against the New York Jets. Yes, in under seven days, one week, the Cowboys will be playing real football again. Hallelujah!
Also, for those who didn't see it, our old friend Andre Gurode ended up signing with the Ravens.
