Cowboys Release Taco Charlton

Taco Charlton, who the Cowboys selected in the first round of the 2017 draft, has been released, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports and the Cowboys confirm. It was reported earlier today that the Cowboys would shop the defensive end or cut him if they couldn’t find a suitor on the trade market.

Robert Quinn, who the Cowboys acquired in the offseason, is set to return from a two-game suspension and with Quinn in the defensive line rotation, playing time for Charlton would have likely been minimized.

Charlton has been ineffective during his time in Dallas, though injuries have robbed him of a chance to get better. He finishes his Cowboys career with four sacks in 27 games.

    Taco hasnt played a down, hard to go any lower. Picked up by Eagles or Redskins by tomorrow.

        • I was a big supporter of his until the last two games, but Jay Gruden has to go after this season unless he plans on becoming more aggressive with game planning and play calling once Haskins steps in. It seems the outcome of the game is not his priority right now.

      I’d be surprised if this guy actually had a diploma and was a “grad”.
