It is not shaping up to be the bye week we expected.
The bye week has been anything but quiet for the Dallas Cowboys, with some unanticipated personnel moves and continued controversy dominating the headlines.
Source: Cowboys cutting cornerback Nolan Carroll, putting more trust in Jourdan Lewis - Cole Patterson, Blogging The BoysNolan Carroll was always an unpopular signing for the Cowboys, at least among the fans. And he did nothing during his brief tenure to really change peoples' minds.
Carroll was brought in to improve the secondary, but that has not been the case this season. He suffered a concussion in a week two loss to the Denver Broncos, and he hasn’t suited up since. That, combined with his performance on the field when healthy, makes this an expected move. Carroll just wasn’t cutting it.
Aside from Carroll’s underwhelming play thus far, rookie corner Jourdan Lewis has made it easy for Dallas to make this kind of move. Despite giving up the game-winning touchdown last week, Lewis has been far and away the most impressive rookie for the Dallas Cowboys.
