Making room on the roster for a tight end in light of another injury to another tight end (Martellus Bennett’s ankle might keep him out of Sunday’s game at Minnesota), the Cowboys yesterday released ’09 5th-round choice Michael Hamlin. His career production in Dallas boasts one tackle.
He is not alone.
Of the 12 players selected in ’09 four have already been released and there’s nothing to suggest any of the dozen are on the brink of being productive players, much less starters.
