The final deadline for roster cuts in the NFL is less than 24 hours away. The Cowboys have already begun trimming their team down to the necessary limit, as they cut another four players Friday. But just because it’s time to consolidate the roster, doesn’t mean the Cowboys aren’t looking to improve the squad.
Randy Gregory was finally reinstated, and he should give the defense a boost when he returns mid-season. The Cowboys clearly would like to augment their young defensive backfield, and the team even brought in former Cowboy Brandon Carr for a visit Friday. Carr’s recent teammate in Baltimore, Earl Thomas, may or may not have a meeting this weekend with Dallas. Jourdan Lewis could begin the season on the IR, even furthuring the need for help in the secondary, and Sean Lee’s placement on the IR should feel too much like deja vu for Dallas fans.
