Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports that the Cowboys have released safety Brodney Pool.
A six-game starter for the Jets in 2011, Pool struggled throughout OTA and minicamp season, and was outplayed by Barry Church on the practice field early in training camp. Church will be the Cowboys’ starting strong safety this year.
In releasing Pool, Dallas has opted to swallow $100,000 in guaranteed money on the one-year, $1.2 million deal he signed in mid-March.
Per Archer, the Cowboys have also waived undrafted rookie cornerback Isaac Madison.
