Raymond Radway Released by Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys cut down to the league mandated 75 players on the active roster Monday morning after announcing the release of 11 players.
The players released are offensive tackles Levy Adcock and Tyrone Novikoff, punter Delbert Alvarado, cornerback C.J. Wilson, tight end Harry Flaherty, running back Javarris Williams, linebacker Caleb McSurdy, long snapper Charley Hughlett and wide receivers Donavon Kemp, David Little and Raymond Radway.
The team had previously released safety Justin Taplin-Ross and running back Ed Wesley. The Cowboys also placed guard/center Kevin Kowalski on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list after missing all of training camp due to an ankle injury.
The only surprise amongst those released, at least in my opinion, is Radway. He was having an outstanding preseason in 2011 and was a lock to make the team before a freakish leg injury ended his rookie season. This preseason however, Radway failed to register a catch, which may have ultimately led to his dismissal Monday morning.
Radway wasn’t the same player he was prior to fracturing his tibia and fibula in 2011. He was hesitant and nowhere near as explosive as the player he was in the 2011 preseason when he registered six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown.
There were times during the 2011 preseason where I couldn’t differentiate between Radway and fellow receiver Dez Bryant. I truly believe, had Radway not gotten hurt, he would have been the third receiver and no one would know about Laurent Robinson.
I fully expected Radway to return to form and compete for the third receiver spot this off-season, but his fractured leg set him back more than anyone could have predicted.
