The Aaron Corp era ends in Dallas

On Monday, the Cowboys signed quarterback Aaron Corp.  It’s Thursday, and the Cowboys have cut him.

We don’t know what happened in three days to transform Corp from being worthy of a spot on the 90-man roster to being unworthy of a spot on the 90-man roster.  Whatever it was, it happened.

The Cowboys also released another player who was on the team considerably longer than Corp.  Defensive tackle Brian Price, a second-round pick of the Bucs in 2010, was waived with the “injured” designation.  Which means that Price suffered some sort of injury during offseason practices, since he arrived via a “futures” contract on December 31.

The Bucs traded Price to the Bears for a seventh-round pick last July.  The Bears cut Price in early September.  He was out of the league all year before the Cowboys took a flier on him once their 2012 season ended.

In hindsight, the move suggests that owner Jerry Jones had been thinking about switching from a 3-4 defense to the 4-3 for a while, given that Price has played defensive tackle in a four-man front.  Something he’ll never do for the Cowboys.
