Devin Smith played a minor role for the Cowboys last season, starting two games despite not playing in any during the 2017 and ’18 campaigns. But Dallas will not carry the wideout over to its 53-man roster this year.
The Cowboys are cutting Smith, Jon Machota of The Athletic tweets. They also waived offensive lineman Adam Redmond on Wednesday.
A former second-round Jets pick, Smith signed with the Cowboys via reserve/futures contract in January of 2019. This followed an injury-plagued New York stay, but the Ohio State product could not carve out much of a role with Dallas either. He caught five passes last season, and while one of them went for a long touchdown, Smith only played in four games.
Dallas drafted CeeDee Lamb in Round 1 and has other capable holdovers behind starters Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Originally a Colts UDFA out of Harvard, Redmond played in 10 games for the Cowboys in 2018 but did not see action last season. He landed on IR in November.
