Cowboys Down To 75-Man Roster

The Cowboys made a number of moves on Tuesday afternoon to get down to a 75-man roster. The full list is presented below, courtesy of’s David Helman (Twitter links):


  • Brandon Barden, TE
  • Jonathan Brown, LB
  • Antwan Goodley, WR
  • David Porter, WR


  • Ken Boatright, DE
  • R.J Dill, OT
  • Michael Hill, RB

Placed on IR:

  • Orlando Scandrick, CB

NFI List:

  • Mark Nzeocha, LB

Scandrick tore his ACL in late August, ruling him out for the 2015 season. It was a big loss for Dallas as he ranked as the 10th-best cornerback in the NFL in 2014 out of 108 qualified players, according to Pro Football Focus’ advanced metrics (subscription required). According to PFF’s data, quarterbacks completed 74.3% of their passes into Scandrick’s coverage, but those completions averaged just 9.9 yards, and the Cowboys’ corner didn’t allow a touchdown in his 14 games. For the year, he recorded 63 tackles and grabbed a pair of interceptions.
