The Cowboys have begun the grueling selection process that eventually ends with just 53 men left on the roster. To get to 53, Dallas must first get to just 90 names, and the club officially hit that mark after releasing six total players on Friday.

C Adam Redmond, DT Walter Palmore, DE Ladarius Hamilton, and CB Kemon Hall were all officially released by the Cowboys.

DT Antwuan Woods and CB Saivion Smith were the first players let go by Dallas, and that news was quickly followed by the announcement of the release of the four names above.

Three of Dallas’ six cuts this week have already been added by other teams, as Smith, Hall, and Hamilton were claimed off waivers by the Seahawks, Chargers and the Buccaneers, respectively. There is still a possibility that the unclaimed Redmond, Woods, or Palmore rejoin the Cowboys at some point this offseason.

Other than Woods, none of the releases have come as major surprises to Cowboys fans, as the club needed to make room for the 24 total players added last week through the draft and undrafted free agency.

Redmond was the most tenured Cowboys cut, as he had spent the majority of time since 2018 on Dallas’ practice squad.

For Hall, just like Smith, the writing was on the wall after Dallas’ new defensive regime added two cornerbacks on Day 2 of the NFL draft with Kelvin Joseph and Nahshon Wright.

Like the corners above, there was just not much room for Hamilton after the Cowboys added Chauncey Golston and Osa Odighizuwa in the third round of the draft.

Last year, the NFL roster size for training camp was set at 80, though it remains to be seen if this years training camp will be treated the same way. Dallas has a number of tough decisions in front of them as they slowly form their 53-man roster.
