Cowboys About to Release Leonard Davis?
The Cowboys are expected to release several veteran players to get under the salary cap. The team is reportedly $20 million over the cap heading into training camp.
A couple of names of veterans expected to be released are not surprising—Marion Barber, Roy Williams.
But then there is a report today that the team will release right guard Leonard Davis. He would count $6 million towards the cap, so this probably makes sense, but at this point, the entire left side of the line is unsigned.
The other news today is that the Cowboys are about to get into an expensive bidding war with Tampa Bay to sign Free.
Update: Missed the story late Tuesday night that the Cowboys had signed Free to a four-year, $32 million contract.
Hard to be confident when the team may or may not have its starting left tackle, left guard, and right guard. Many expected Marc Columbo to be on his way out, but he may have to start again on the right side with rookie Tyron Smith taking over on the left.
Another Update: With Free’s signing, Colombo may be much closer to leaving now.
