Maybe Cowboys owner Jerry Jones should have fired Cowboys G.M. Jerry Jones, after all.
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, the departure of linebacker Victor Butler closes the books on the team’s 2009 draft class.
All 12 players taken that year by Jones the G.M. are now gone. The draft yielded no starters, and only six made it onto the 53-man roster.
Watkins has the full list of selections. A couple of names will be familiar. Most won’t.
The only good news for the Cowboys is that they wouldn’t have had the cap space this year to re-sign any of them, anyway.
