In a not entirely unexpected move, ESPN is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys have cut starting left tackle Flozell Adams. Adams was a 2nd round pick way back in 1998 and has missed only 14 games in his 13 year career with the Cowboys. The big reason for his cut wasn't necessarily his performance--he was still a solid tackle, though not as dominant as he has been. However he was due a $2.5 million roster bonus as well as $5 million in bas salary. $7.5 million is a bunch of money to pay an aging left tackle who's not at the top of his game.

The Cowboys also released safety Ken Hamlin who was signed to a six year extension at the end of the 2007 season.
