Cowboys' Jabril Cox Signs with NFC East Rival; Cut Shows Confidence?

Tuesday saw the Dallas Cowboys make a number of unexpected cuts in order to settle on their 53-man roster. Linebacker Jabril Cox was one of them dropped.

Cox, a third-year player from Louisiana State, spent the majority of his time with the Cowboys on special teams.

His first two seasons were plagued by a string of knee injuries, but many in Dallas anticipated

that Cox would play a bigger part in the third season, especially when rookie linebacker DeMarvion Overshown tore his ACL.

Dallas wanted to reinstate him on the practice squad, but Cox decided to sign with the Washington Commanders instead.

There are now only four linebackers on the roster for the Cowboys. Mike McCarthy, the head coach,

was questioned on Tuesday regarding his defense's alleged lack of depth in the middle. He made the choice to focus on his safety features instead.

McCarthy remarked, "I think until you see us get going that will answer itself. "I can think of no deeper safety group than this one.
