Cowboys make 5 cuts, including spring FA signing, to get down to 85 players

·1 min read

The Cowboys had until Tuesday afternoon to trim down their roster by five players.

They apparently made up their minds early.

The club has already informed the five cuts of their fate, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Cornerback Kyron Brown, fullback Ryan Nall, tight end Ian Bunting, undrafted rookie wide receiver Ty Fryfogle, and defensive tackle Austin Faoliu will reportedly be cleaning out their lockers.

Only Faoliu was waived outright. Brown, Nall, Bunting, and Fryfogle are being let go, though, with injury designations. If they go unclaimed by another team, they will revert to injured reserve.

The Cowboys technically stand at 86 total players, as offensive lineman Isaac Alarcón does not count toward the official roster due to his international exemption.

The team must get down to 81 players by Aug. 23.
