The tale of two Donovans: A Dallas Cowboys story

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was a time of celebration over making America’s Team. It was a time for remonstration and regret. Last Saturday, the Dallas Cowboys cut the roster down to 53 players from the preseason 90.

Suddenly, 37 players were out in the cold, some to latch onto the Cowboys practice squad or others. Some will hang on for a while, maybe make another 90 man-roster next year. Some will never play again.

This year, there were a number of low-profile players who showed out in the preseason games.
