A dose of reality for Jesse Holley and other Cowboys

And despite a game-winning punt return for a touchdown on Friday night in Minnesota, Fourth and Long winner Jesse Holley is out of a job.

Also gone are guard Travis Bright, safety Courtney Brown, quarterback Rudy Carpenter, tight end Scott Chandler, fullback Julius Croslin, defensive end Marcus Dixon, linebacker Tearrius George, guard Ryan Gibbons, cornerback Jeremy Haynes, receiver Mike Jefferson, receiver Manuel Johnson, running back Keon Lattimore (brother of Ray Lewis), cornerback Mike Mickens, receiver Willie Reid, defensive end Derreck Robinson, fullback Asaph Schwapp, defensive tackle Jonas Seawright, safety DeAngelo Smith, receiver Isaiah Stanback, linebacker Matt Stewart, and cornerback DeAngelo Willingham.

Smith was a fifth-round draft pick in 2009, and Mickens and Johnson arrived via round seven.

Stanback had been a fourth-round pick in 2007. 

Also, linebacker Stephen Hodge was placed on injured reserve.

    More typical Cowboys bust picks.
    Jerry really needs to get a football guy in there.

    What about Romo? did he make the cut?

    Garcia is available, please cut Kitna.
    Stanback had no hope after that horrible penalty-filled performance last night. Holley should have been given a chance.

    Should have kept Holley on special teams, he missed some tackles but it would have been a nice story to follow.
    Might have allowed me to show some interest in the ‘Boys at least.

    If Holley can get on the practice squad that is a full blown win for him. A player can make a decent living working on practice squads for a few years. There is definitely no shame in that at all.

    No, I think he plays for the Bengals now.
