Danny Coale reportedly will not make the 53-man roster for the Cowboys.

The Cowboys have not made an official announcement about the final 53-man roster, but several reports have indicated which players have been or will be released.

The big news was the release of fifth-round pick Danny Coale, who some thought would play a Wes Welker-type of role on the team. Kevin Ogletree has probably won the third receiver job, and Cole Beasley has looked better this preseason than did Coale, who battled through some injuries. It looks as if Andre Holmes beat out Coale for the #6 receiver spot, which is why Coale is gone.

The other name was OLB Adrian Hamilton, who might make the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Some of the rest of the cuts are more up in the air.

One of the more debated topics has been whether Dallas keeps more than two QBs. It appears that the team will release both Stephen McGee and Rudy Carpenter.

If so, that means that the only player remaining from the 2009 draft will be tight end John Phillips. Awful, Jerry. Awful.

Phillip Tanner will make the squad at RB. Lance Dunbar had some impressive plays against Miami on Wednesday night. However, it looks as if Dunbar and Jamize Olawale will only make the practice squad, assuming they clear waivers.

On defense, a few names jump out among the cuts. Clifton Geathers apparently will not make the team, nor will defensive backs Teddy Williams or Akwasi Owusu-Ansah.

If so, that means that only three of the six players from the 2010 draft remain. Fortunately, one of them is Sean Lee, and the other is Dez Bryant. Not qutie as awful.

This is coming one night too late, but the Cowboys finished the regular season at 3-1 by beating the Dolphins 30-13 on Wednesday. The Cowboys only gave up two field goals in the first half, meaning that in four games, Dallas gave up a total of four field goals and no touchdowns during the first half.
