Cowboys cut Anthony Hargrove

Before defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove signed with the Cowboys in May, it looked like his career might be over.

Hargrove did not play at all in 2012, in part because he was initially suspended by the NFL for his alleged involvement in the Saints’ bounty program and no team signed him as a free agent, and he joined a lawsuit against the league because of concussions he sustained during his playing career. The job offer from the Cowboys contradicted those signs that Hargrove was at the end of the line, but now we’re again wondering if Hargrove’s finished.

Nick Eatman of the Cowboys website reports that the team has released Hargrove a little more than a month after signing him. While you normally can’t tell all that much from unpadded offseason workouts, the Cowboys obviously felt they saw enough to know that Hargrove wouldn’t be able to help them in the 2013 season.

That’s not going to be a big help for Hargrove when it comes to finding other work, although one never knows what injuries may open up jobs around the league as the summer unfolds.

    Churning the bottom of the roster

    can he play tight end?

    I would say it’s more a case of he’s not well suited to play in a 3-4. He’s a 4-3, one-gap pass rusher and that’s it.

    Thank you! This garbage was a smudge on the roster.
    Go away and find a hole to crawl into, Hargrove.

    where have you been? the cowboys are switching back to the 4-3 this year.

    Actually the Packers DID sign him as a free agent last off-season and then cut him. Minor point, but you may as well have the facts straight.

    Hargrove will come back to haunt the Boys.

    The Cowboys have been awful for 18 years but keep posting their every move like anyone gives a single fudge.

    Yet @nutsacker here you are commenting on a story no one gives a single fudge (you must be from Utah using such nasty words)

    maybe they bought info from him…

    Hargrove is actually a great personality (atleast on camera). Was always cracking jokes and dancing on the camera, in Seattle.

    I was a little surprised to hear him cut so quickly. It sounded like he was out of shape for camp which wasn’t a big surprise. Still I thought he may be able to help them play the 4-3.
