The Cowboys released backup defensive back Brandon Carr, the team announced Tuesday.

The team signed Carr, a 12-year veteran, to the practice squad after final cuts because of injuries in the secondary. It later signed him to the active roster, but he played only 21 snaps the first four games.

The Cowboys also cut backup offensive tackle Alex Light.

They signed offensive tackle Greg Senat to the active roster off the Browns’ practice squad and added offensive tackle William Sweet to the practice squad.

The Cowboys won’t have right tackle La'el Collins this season and have had starting left tackle Tyron Smith sit out two games. Terence Steele and Brandon Knight both have made starts at tackle for the Cowboys.

    Wrong CB. You must be talking about Scandrick. Carr is a good guy.

    You’re correct. Glad scandrick is still outta the league.

  4. Other teams can stop Dallas’ run game, but Dallas’ defense cannot stop the run game of the opposing team and the Dallas front office is in denial by claiming that the over-the-hill defense just needs to follow the scheme. Stopping the run is simple; just blitz the gaps with more men than they can block; that requires two corners who can cover for five seconds, and a speedy safety who can play center field for the same five seconds. If Dallas cannot “scheme” that simple defense, then the front office, and the coaching staff, need to go. Incidentally, I have never seen a fat coach be successful in coaching highly skilled athletes who need instructive discipline to act as a team.

    Don’t be surprised if they take all the available cap space and give Dak the $35M+ contract he wants and ignore the defense. Then they can have 75% of their cap money tied up in seven players and they’ll have to get rid of anyone making more than the NFL minimum.

    Looks like the Cowboys’ window has officially closed. Losing to the Browns means they’re just not very good in spite of what Jerruh says.

  6. Dallas will have to pay Dak at least $37M. They won’t have money to pay for D. Of course they look really good with 88. Too bad he can’t play DL where Poe is doing a kneel down. Stucats how do you like your trash team?

  7. Carr and Dix should be starting for this team and neither are on the roster. And questions why the defense is getting torched and the Cowboys are 1-3 and should be 0-4

  8. High school coaches preach to their safeties. No body ever gets behind you. NEVER. I guess cowboys coaches forget to tell the professional players on the team.
