Dallas Cowboys roster cuts following 2021 training camp

NFL teams are cutting down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Dallas Cowboys sort out their roster decisions.

The Dallas Cowboys will have QB Dak Prescott healthy this season and hope to explode offensively as a result. WR Amari Cooper is also expected to be healthy to start the season and RB Ezekiel Elliott is due for a bounce-back year.

The position to watch throughout the season will be at tight end. The Cowboys haven’t decided between Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz, but the latter had the big season in 2020. Jarwin might be the better receiver, but expect Dallas to play both guys evenly.
