Among the more surprising cuts so far on the day when all NFL teams must get down to 53 players is Cowboys defensive lineman Igor Olshansky.

Olshansky signed a four-year free agent contract with the Cowboys in 2009 and has played in all 32 games since then, starting 28 of them. But the Cowboys have decided that their defensive line has enough depth to move on without him.

As a seven-year veteran, Olshansky is not subject to waivers, so he will be an unrestricted free agent. Any team that needs defensive line depth is free to make him an offer as soon as the transaction becomes official.
