On August 26, the Dallas Cowboys, along with every team in the NFL, will have to cut their current roster down to the league mandated 75-man roster.

So, here are five Dallas Cowboys players in danger of being cut following Week 3 of the NFL preseason.

The Cowboys signed Kenneth Boatright in hopes that he might make an impact on a defensive line that has been ravished by injury, however, that hasn’t happened. Unless Boatright has an almost perfect game, he won’t be around after August 26.

I’ve said it on Twitter, and I’ll say it again, “I don’t see what all the hype is about.” I’ll hold out hope that Terrance Mitchell has a good game against the Dolphins, but if he doesn’t, I doubt that he survives the first round of cuts.

I’ll admit it; I was on the Caesar Rayford bandwagon when the Cowboys traded for him last season. However, this preseason has changed that. I’m still waiting for Rayford to take that next step; unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen.

I really thought that Tom Honrsey would challenge Chris Jones for the lone punter spot on this team, but he simply didn’t. In fact, I thought he’d be gone by now.

Matt Johnson has yet to get on the field for the Cowboys in 2014, and I don’t think that will happen. He continues to struggle with hamstring issues, and I think it’s time that the Cowboys cut ties with the former Eastern Washington standout.
