IRVING, Texas - After a quiet few weeks of the offseason, the Cowboys made a few roster moves Friday, cutting four players from the roster.
The most notable was defensive end Everette Brown, who played in seven games during the second half of the season.
The team also waived defensive tackle Corvey Irvin, guard Ray Dominguez and guard Jeff Olson, who was only with the team for a week in training camp and suffered a concussion. He was on the team's reserved/injured list. Dominguez was on the practice squad all last season, while Irvin was a late-season addition at defensive tackle.
Brown garnered more attention about where he came from than when he was actually in uniform. The defensive end was just a few days away from opening up a Smoothie shop in Charlotte when he got the call to come help the Cowboys' injury-plagued defensive line.
[embedded_ad] Brown finished the year with seven tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss and four pressures. His sack and forced fumble against the Vikings helped the Cowboys halt a late-Minnesota rally.
Free agency officially begins March 11 although teams can negotiate with their own unrstircted and restricted free agents. Some of the key free agents for the Cowboys include defensive tackle Jason Hatcher and defensive end Anthony Spencer.
The Cowboys' have some contract decisions to make regarding receiver Miles Austin and defensive end DeMarcus Ware.
