Martez Wilson dropped by Dallas

Injuries have left the Cowboys defensive line as thin as a skeleton this summer, but the lack of healthy bodies didn’t help defensive end Martez Wilson make the club.

Wilson was one of the first two cuts announced by the team on Monday morning. Wilson, a third-round pick of the Saints in 2011, finished last season with the Cowboys after starting the year in New Orleans and making a brief stop in Oakland. He played in nine games overall and recorded his only sack of the year while playing for the Saints.

Fullback J.C. Copeland was also given his walking papers after losing his competition with Tyler Clutts for the job.

The Cowboys have many more moves to come before Tuesday’s deadline. Nick Eatman of the team’s website reports that tight end Jordan Najvar will have surgery on Tuesday and be one of the players excised from the active roster.

    I wonder if Jones will give this Clutts a $108mil contract as well?

    Cowboys should pick up Vilma and Smith they would both be major upgrades over what they are working with right now.

    You can’t blame the Cowboys for keeping Clutts over Copeland. With a name like Clutts, the guy was born to be a Cowboy.

    Little surprised to see Wilson as a first round of cuts since he actually managed a couple sacks in preseason. Those came late in the games but still more than others produced.

    Wow what a fall from grace. At one point this guy was thought to a borderline 1st round choice. Not a Cowboys hater but if he was cut by this years Cowboy team he must be finished.

    I’m a little surprised they cut Copeland, I thought J.C. was going to be their savior.
