Cowboys begin the trimming with Everette Brown

As the Cowboys work to get into compliance with the league’s salary cap, they’re starting by tossing an umbrella overboard rather than rearranging the deck chairs.

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Cowboys will release defensive end Everette Brown.

One of last year’s many replacements for an injured Cowboys lineman, Brown never blossomed as many thought he would after a standout career at Florida State.

Of course, the Panthers raised the bar on those expectations by trading a future first-round pick to the 49ers to take him in the second round of the 2009 Draft.

Brown turned into a bust, with 6.0 sacks in two seasons. The 49ers turned the pick into All-Pro guard Mike Iupati.

Brown has floated through stints with the Lions and Chargers as well, and is currently running a smoothie franchise he just bought in Charlotte. So he’s got that going for him.

    Trimming the fat!? Need’s to start with cutting Miles austin. I love d.ware but his cap number is way to high. He’s already restructured twice and is a team player but his health as been a huge issue. Carr need’s to take a cut as well.

    I remember being upset when the 49ers dealt that pick. But it worked out pretty well . . . now we need to extend Iupati somehow.

    $730,000 down, $17.2 million to go to get under the salary cap.

    Cowboys should just be thankful the cap got a huge bump

    Brown was a body Dallas brought in out of desperation during the season and cutting his $730,000 salary is just a drop in the bucket.

    I dont get why cutting austin should be a huge priority the cowboys only save 300k this year. Ware should be cut or restructured as he is taking up 7.5 million in cap space

    They’ll be back to the glory hole days in no time with moves like this <>

    Who – the – hell – is Everette Brown?

    Its all good….like Stephen Jones has already told us, the dallas cap situation is not a problem. He then went on to say that he really doesn’t think cancer is that bad of a disease.

    Not to worry, Stephen Jones is going to lure FA’s by offering them BitCoins and real estate.
