Cowboys Cut Greg Ellis

My hope for a last minute deal for Greg Ellis was short lived. Just a few minutes ago the Cowboys announced that Greg Ellis has been cut. It is a sad ending for a player who gave everything he had to the team for 11 years. I hope he lands on his feet and gets a few more seasons out of his body.

The Cowboys will save over $4.15 million on the salary cap with the move and have eliminated the distraction of Greg Ellis whining to the media about his reduced role in the defense. I'll miss his play on the field but not his whining.


  1. Sad to see him go, but happy about the future of Spencer and the two new linebackers that were drafted. The Ware deal should get done pretty soon now that there is a little more money.

  2. There are no more excuses for not getting the Ware deal done now.
