Dallas Cowboys Make Full Use Of NFL's 90-Man Roster Limit

A look at the Cowboys' first 2015 90-man roster.

The Cowboys have exactly 90 players, the maximum allowed under NFL rules, on their offseason roster right now.

That roster will change frequently over the coming days and weeks, but because the Cowboys are maxed out against the 90-player limit, every single new signing will have to be accompanied by a player being released who is currently on the roster. Those changes happen so fast that it can be hard to keep up with all the going-ons; the mothership for example only has 88 players on their roster right now, and not all of those 88 are still with the Cowboys.

In total, the 90 Cowboys players are comprised as follows:

  • 46 players returning from last season.
  • 15 college free agents signed over the last few days.
  • 11 players signed as free agents since the end of the season.
  • 10 players signed to reserve/future contracts earlier this year.
  • 8 rookies drafted in the 2015 NFL draft.

Here's how the roster currently stands, keeping in mind that this first roster iteration of 2015 may not last more than a day.
