Dallas Cowboys Roster Cuts: Players Most Likely To Be Claimed By Another Team

New, comments

Who do you think is the player most likely to get picked up by another team by high noon EST on Sunday?

The claiming period for the players released during final cuts on Saturday is fairly short: Players placed on waivers during the final roster cuts can only be claimed until 12:00 noon ET on Sunday. After that, the Cowboys can begin signing up to 10 players to their practice squad, and the hope is that they'll be able to sign all the players they have earmarked for a slot on their practice squad.

But not all the players the Cowboys waived during final cuts may make it past the waiver wire, or will they? Here is a non-exhaustive list of recently cut players who could potentially garner some interest:

  • OT Bryan Witzmann and OG Jake Brendel played fairly well for the Cowboys and could land with an OL-needy team.
  • CB Deji Olatoye was considered a roster lock by many Cowboys fans, but was beat out by Dax Swanson for the final CB spot. He looked good in the preseason outside of the last game.
  • TE Rico Gathers garnered a lot of interest prior to the draft, even if teams knew that he'd be a developmental project for a season or two. Is a team willing to give up a roster for his potential?
  • Three-year veteran Devin Street could attract some interest from extremely WR-needy teams.

Or are we Cowboys fans systematically overrating the attractiveness of our own roster cuts, and not one of the Cowboys' roster cuts will be signed elsewhere?

Let us know who you think is the player most likely to get picked up by another team by high noon EST on Sunday.
