DALLAS — Since everyone is predicting who will be on the regular season roster for the Cowboys I thought I’d take a crack at putting together what I think will be the final 53.
QB’s – Tony Romo, Brandon Weeden, Dustin Vaughan
I don’t agree with keeping Vaughan at all but I think it’s what the Cowboys will do. I would keep Showers over Vaughan but from what I’ve heard I think the Cowboys are going to try to sneak Showers onto the practice squad.
RB’s – Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar, Tyler Clutts
I’ve seen all these trade rumors and I don’t agree with any of them. The boys’ don’t need another back. These three are more than capable of being productive this season. And if one of them goes down, Ben Malena and Gus Johnson are viable options that will most likely be on the practice squad if needed.
WR’s – Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, Devin Street, Lucky Whitehead
Lucky Whitehead makes the team! After his excellent preseason he should earn a spot on the team mostly in a returner role but he’s shown flashes of being a pretty good receiver.
TE’s – Jason Witten, Gavin Escobar, James Hanna
Everyone has Geoff Swain penciled in here but I don’t believe in keeping four TE’s. Hopefully he can sneak onto the practice squad.
OL – Tyron Smith, Ronald Leary, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Doug Free, La’el Collins, Mackensy Bernadeau, Darrion Weems
DL – Demarcus Lawerence, Tyrone Crawford, Nick Hayden, Jeremy Mincey, Randy Gregory, Davon Coleman, Lavar Edwards, Jack Crawford, Terrell McClain, Ryan Russell — Greg Hardy
LB – Sean Lee, Anthony Hitchens, Damien Wilson, Kyle Wilber, Jasper Brinkley, Keith Smith, Andrew Gachkar — Rolando McClain
DB – Brandon Carr, Mo Claiborne, Byron Jones, Barry Church, J.J. Wilcox, Corey White, Tyler Patmon, Danny McCray, Jeff Heath
Jeff Heath somehow keeps making this team. They like him on special teams but with McCray being better than Heath on special teams I don’t see the point in keeping him, but he’ll make it on the roster somehow, yet again.
ST – Dan Bailey, Chris Jones, L.P. Ladouceur
Well there you have it. My projected 53-man roster for the Cowboys.
Thanks for reading.
