Cowboys right tackle Marc Colombo said he met with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday morning. Colombo said he is hopeful about his future with the Cowboys but couldn't say anything about it yet.
"Hopefully we'll know something by the end of the day," he said. "If it works out, it works out. If not, it's been a great six years with the Cowboys."
Jones told CBS11 that the Cowboys informed "four or five" players that they will be released by the team. It has been speculated for months that Colombo and Marion Barber who be among the team's cuts. It is possible the Cowboys could re-sign Colombo to a new deal for less money. He had been scheduled to make a $1.9 million base and count $4.3 million against the cap in 2011.
