The Dallas Cowboys release Dantry Poe, Daryl Worley

FRISCO, Texas – A day after Everson Griffin traded to the Detroit Lions defensive end, the Dallas Cowboys have cut off P def defensive action against Dontari Poe and Cornback K Daryl Worley as they search for a way to advance the defense that is miserable.

The Cowboys hoped for a trade involving Poe or Worley, but chose to move on when they were unable to do so.

Poe and Worley were not on the practice field during the open part for the media, and coach Mike McCarthy will not enter the players’ position at his daily news conference.

Pony had only nine tackles in seven starts. He signed a two-year deal worth up to 10 10.5 million as a free agent with a 3.5 million guarantee. He was confined to training camp after returning from quadriceps surgery, but that didn’t help stop the run.

The Cowboys are the last in the league in run defense, allowing a game of 178.3 yards on the ground. They have dropped more than 200 rushing yards in three of the last four games.

Poe became the first cowboy to kneel during the national anthem, but the decision to let him go was strictly about his play, not his opposition, according to one source.

Worley, who signed a one-year deal worth ડો 3 million, started four games after injuring Anthony Brown and Chidobuz Juni. He had 13 tackles and only one pass duplication and was hit several times. With Brown returning from injury and the prospect of returning against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Worley proved costly.

As Poe and Worley are acquired veterans, their basic pay is fully guaranteed and the Cowboys do not receive an immediate pay-cap position. They will save પો 4 million in cape space in 2021 for Poe.

Griffin was dealt with the Lions for a conditional sixth-round pick in 2021. Depending on how much he plays and how often he plays on the Lions’ game-day roster, the Cowboys can get picked in the fifth round.

With this move, it opens up opportunities for young players like the Cowboys, Randy Gregory, Bradley Anna, Justin Hamilton and Reggie Robinson to see more action to look to the future.

“I don’t really trust actions or transactions to send messages,” McCarthy said. “I have the opportunity to talk to the football team every day. They clearly know where the team needs to meet and how I feel until the process of how we do it. This is about business opportunity and makes your best opportunity. All decisions will come down. “

The Cowboys (2-5) are third in the NFC East, but still hope to win the division. The Eagles are in first place with a record of 2-4-1.
