IRVING, Texas --The Cowboys will announce their cut from 80 to 53 players at 5 p.m. (CT), but it already appears they'll part ways with veteran defensive end Igor Olshansky.
Olshansky has been quoted in one report that he was informed of his release this morning. He has started two full seasons for the Cowboys (2009-10) but lost his job to veteran free agent Kenyon Coleman in preseason.
The Cowboys would save a little over $3 million by releasing
Olshansky. The team has indicated that they're intent on developing second-year defensive lineman Sean Lissemore.
