2013 ROSTER UPDATE: Dallas Cowboys release QB Dalton Williams, OT J.B. Shugarts

2013 ROSTER UPDATE - Dallas Cowboys release QB Dalton Williams, OT J.B. Shugarts - The Boys Are Back blog

IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys released two more players from their 90-man roster Wednesday, bringing their total number of available slots to three.

The two cuts, last-minute casualties as the team prepares to leave for training camp, were quarterback Dalton Williams (Akron) and tackle J.B. Shugarts (Ohio State). Combined with last week’s release of fullback Lawrence Vickers, the moves give the Cowboys several open spots on their preseason roster ahead of Sunday’s first training camp practice.

It was speculated this week that the team might attempt to find some replacements among its quarterback and wide receiver corps. The Cowboys worked out quarterbacks Alex Tanney and Chase Clement, as well as receivers DeWayne Pearce and Lavasier Tuinei on Tuesday.

As of right now, the Cowboys have five offensive tackles on the roster – starters Tyron Smith and Doug Free, followed by Jermey Parnell, Edawn Coughman and Darrion Weems.

The release of Williams leaves Tony Romo, Kyle Orton and Nick Stephens as the team’s trio of quarterbacks for the time being.
