The Dallas Cowboys have reduced their roster to 53.  I’d like to think of a better first line than that, but that’s pretty much the gist of every story right now.

Gone are linebacker Mike Balogun, quarterback Tom Brandstater, cornerback Mario Butler, fullback Shaun Chapas, linebacker Kenwin Cummings, fullback Isaiah Greenhouse, kicker Shayne Graham, fullback Chris Gronkowski, receiver Manuel Johnson, punter Chris Jones, linebacker Orie Lemon, receiver Lyle Leong, guard Pepa Letuli, running back Lonyae Miller, defensive end Igor Olshansky, safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, fullback Jason Pociask, receiver Tysson Poots, cornerback Chris Randle, kicker Dave Rayner, defensive end Jimmy Saddler-McQueen, safety Andrew Sendejo, cornerback Josh Thomas, linebacker Brandon Williams, receiver Teddy Williams, and safety Collin Zych.

The Cowboys also placed receiver Raymond Radway on injured reserve.
