Cowboys cut Terrence Newman
Perhaps the biggest deficiency of the Dallas Cowboys the last couple of years has been their secondary. And the poster child for that porous secondary could have been oft-injured cornerback Terence Newman. He got routinely toasted and was a liability.
Well, the Cowboys have dealt with him appropriately. According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys have released the former first-round pick in 2003.
“Filed to @ESPNDallas From me and @calvinwatkins – source says Cowboys release Terence Newman,” he tweeted.
Let’s be honest, this isn’t a huge surprise when you see that he was due to make $6 million this season. No one would pay him that much. He’s now free to live a life of religious fulfillment.
Look for the Cowboys to go after Cortland Finnegan or Brandon Carr. They’ll probably throw some draft picks at the position as well.
