Jerry Jones admits Marc Colombo good as gone

The decision to draft tackle Tyron Smith with the ninth overall pick means the end of the line for right tackle Marc Colombo.

Owner Jerry Jones admitted as much when he said Smith has already been penciled in at right tackle, and he didn’t back away when asked what that meant for Colombo.

“We don’t have to make that decision tonight,” Jones said. “But I think anytime that you make a pick of that stature or that high, he is going to play. And that was a big part of the decision, he can play and will play, and if he plays he will have to take somebody’s place.”

Age and injuries have made Colombo ineffective the past two years. He allowed 9.5 sacks last season. The Cowboys can also avoid a $2.6 million roster bonus by releasing Colombo.

The owners and Goddell should of been arrested for contempt of court because they took so long to let the players back in they stalled for time. Once again can buy you way out of the courts system. If it was Joe blow in contempt he would be in Jail. This is the great corrupt Justice system America lives in only for the Rich. Lets appeal the appeal what a great system no wonder everyone is booing him someone should through a egg at him so he has egg on his face.

Thanks Barber but ya gotta go with Colombo. Take Roy's lame ass with you!
