Cowboys to Part Ways With Leonard Davis



    It’s looking as though the first casualty of the low-hanging salary cap in Dallas may be right guard Leonard Davis.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are planning on parting ways with Davis after four seasons.

    In this span, Davis, a native of Wortham and a University of Texas alum, earned three Pro Bowl nods (2007-09), but the veteran struggled mightily at times last year. And though his play improved toward the end of 2010, his massive contract was enough for Dallas to send him on his way.

    With the move, the Cowboys will save $6 million in 2011. They are currently more than $18 million over the agreed-upon $120 million cap.

    Owner and general manager Jerry Jones reportedly met with a number of players today to inform them that they would not need to pack for San Antonio--Davis was one, as was kicker Kris Brown. Right tackle Marc Colombo also met with Jones, but his future in Dallas remains unclear.

    "I didn't get released,” Colombo said, per ESPN, “so that's a good sign.”
