The Cowboys' second preseason game is an important one for those hoping to make the final roster. There'll only be one exhibition after this before cutdown day, and this could very well be the last chance for fringe backups to earn significant playing time.
With that in mind, here are three players who will be fighting for their jobs in Saturday's game against the Seahawks.
Cowboys Players Fighting for Their Jobs vs. Seahawks
1. Neville Gallimore
The defensive line is one of the Cowboys' strongest positions, making this a tough group to crack. Though Neville Gallimore has spent three seasons with the team, he's in major jeopardy of being out of a job.
Gallimore hasn't impressed much since being a third-round pick by Dallas in 2019. He's been afforded the playing time to make his presence felt, appearing in 35 contests and making 14 starts, but the results have lagged behind. He's posted only 3.0 total sacks over three years and just 9 tackles for loss.
Gallimore makes sense as a cut candidate not just because of his play, but his contract as well. The Cowboys would save more than $2 million if they part ways with him, providing this contender some extra cash to spend on players who can actually make a difference in 2023.
The upcoming fourth-year pro simply can't coast by anymore with the amount of talent the 'Boys have added here. There's still a chance he makes his case for a backend roster spot, but with the top eight defensive linemen already locked in, he'll need a huge showing to prove he's worth sticking around.
