5 Dallas Cowboys Who Won't Make it Past First Round of Cuts

The first round of roster cuts is right around the corner.

In fact, it is scheduled for Aug. 27, meaning that some of the players trying to make this roster still have some time to make a case for themselves. It is worth noticing, however, that some of those players have gone through OTAs, most of training camp and two preseason games, but they haven’t shown much promise, if any at all.

On Aug. 27, the team will go from having 90 active players down to 75 active players on the roster, which means there will be 15 players who will be out of a job. I do think, however, that it is highly unlikely that this first wave of cuts will include any big names. I truly believe that this first wave of cuts will be the guys commonly referred to as camp bodies.

The term camp body is used to describe guys who are brought in, if nothing more, to get some reps and give the some of the veteran players a break during training camp. Sometimes those guys turn out to be pretty good additions, which in turn will make the scouting department look good, but more often than not, they’re just guys that will fill in the gaps as camp progresses.

This year, when the Dallas Cowboys trim the roster to 75 players, I don’t think there will be any surprises or big-time shockers. So let’s take a look at five players who won’t make it past the first round of cuts.

Unfortunately for Amos, the Cowboys are very deep at wide receiver, and although he impressed receivers coach Derek Dooley, there simply isn’t a roster spot for Amos.

Green is another guy who will be a victim of too much depth at the wide receiver position. Unfortunately for Green, he never separated himself from the pack of young receivers.

Colin Cochart

The Cowboys might keep five tight ends when it’s all said and done, but Cochart will not be one of them. He was a camp body last year, and this year it’s more of the same thing.

Xavier Brewer

Brewer signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, but like others on this list he failed to impress. It doesn’t help that the Cowboys also have a lot of depth at cornerback.

Heath has failed to shine in the Cowboys’ crowded secondary. I think the team would rather keep Jakar Hamilton over Heath.
