The Cowboys’ roster saw a handful of changes on Wednesday, as they cut a receiver and a long snapper to make room for an offensive tackle J.B. Shugarts (pictured) and long snapper Jackson Anderson, from Klein, TX and Frisco, TX, respectively.
Shugarts spent some time on the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad last year after going undrafted out of Ohio State University, where he was a three-year starter. Anderson served as Duke’s long snapper for four years. He went undrafted in 2013, but apparently impressed some folks at Valley Ranch after getting a workout a couple weeks ago.
To make room for the new signings, Dallas cut LS Charlie Hughlett and WR Carlton Mitchell. Hughlett was among final cuts in 2012 after failing to beat out longtime long snapper L.P. Ladouceur for the job, and Dallas extended Ladouceur for five years this offseason. Mitchell is a former Brown who spent part of last season with the Jaguars. He signed on with Dallas back in January.
