Breaking News, Part II: Flozell Adams Released

In addition to FS Ken Hamlin, the Cowboys have also reportedly cut LT Flozell Adams.  This comes as a bit of a shock to us.  Adams was due a base salary of $5 million and a $2.5 million roster bonus in June.  Those numbers are less significant in an uncapped year, however.

With Adams gone, Dallas will now likely start Doug Free at left tackle.  We see Free as the probable opening day starter regardless of the Cowboys’ draft plans.  We have already publicly questioned Free’s ability to play on the left side.  That isn’t to say he will inevitably fail at left tackle, but simply that his effectiveness there will be a huge questions mark.

Perhaps the Cowboys did not read our list of the top five reasons to not cut Flozell Adams.  Heading that list was that Adams was still the best left tackle on the Cowboys’ roster.

Dallas is now virtually certain to address either left tackle or free safety in the first round of the draft.  However, with the top-tier guys at both spots possibly gone by the 27th selection, the Cowboys’ draft plans are a bit murky at this point.

We presume this team has something up their sleeve.  Are Ravens’ tackle Jared Gaither or Rams’ safety O.J. Atogwe possibilities?  Stay tuned.
