Today we look at three Dallas Cowboys who’ve been such massive disappointments they deserve to be cut today

The Dallas Cowboys are cratering. Injuries started the downward spiral but underachievers have taken this team once dubbed “a Contender” to new, unimaginable depths. With reports the locker room has started to lose faith in the coaching staff, actions must be taken.

Cutting some chronic underachievers to light a fire in the others and reclaim the accountability in the locker room could be just what the doctor ordered in Dallas. Luckily for us (luckily?), if that’s the path to be taken, there are some obvious and worthy candidates to be made an example of.

The parameters of this act must follow two rules:

  1. Players cut must be deserving of their release
  2. Players cut must not factor into the long-term plans of the Dallas Cowboys

To the first point – the Dallas Cowboys can’t simply cut someone just for the sake of cutting someone. Such an undeserving action would have the opposite reaction on the team and would likely cause more dissent, not less.

Secondly, cutting young players who are still developing and potentially in the long-term plans of the team, would be damaging to next season and beyond (the exact thing we should be focusing our attention on).

Young guys like Brandon Knight, Tyler Biadasz, and Donovan Wilson may not be playing well, but they are still hopeful prospects who are expected to improve. Cutting players such as these makes little sense.

Finally, you can’t cut players you can’t afford to cut. Jaylon Smith and Ezekiel Elliott may be massive disappointments this season but their contracts make them uncuttable this season. Make sense?
