Here is my latest projection of the Dallas Cowboys final roster going into the season.
Like any good team, the bottom few on this roster should continue to change, as Garrett and staff deem necessary. I know this list will be debatable, so please feel free to post a comment or to shoot me an email or a tweet, as I always love feedback.
Salary-wise, McGee and Carpenter are the same at $615,000, so no cap difference and cutting a QB with starting experience is risky. If the Cowboys can re-sign Carpenter to the practice squad, since he has eligibility left for the squad, they should release McGee. However, they won’t do it until Carpenter is on the practice squad.
Garrett grew up with three QBs on a roster, and I think he likes it that way, even if one is on the practice squad. This projection assumes Carpenter is on the practice squad.
