The preseason is just about over and the regular season is ready to take its place. Football is here, friends.

Before we can officially start looking forward to Week 1 we need to establish who the Dallas Cowboys are keeping on their roster. All teams in the NFL have to be down to the league-mandated 53-man roster by 4pm ET on Tuesday, August 31st. Information will come fast and quickly at times which is why we have put together this tracker for you. Some cuts may come earlier than Tuesday, so we’re going to start tracking now.

Our primary focus will be tracking all of the cuts that the Cowboys have made, but this is a time of year where all players let go are worth paying attention to as Dallas could have interest in somebody else from another team.
