DE Igor Olshansky understands he could be the next Cowboys "business decision"

Defensive end Igor Olshansky wants to continue his his career with the Cowboys.

But he has moved from the right side to the left side and been demoted from starter to backup.

And considering the number of business decisions the Cowboys have made with veterans and their contracts over the past month, including Monday's decision to release five-time Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode, Olshansky knows he could be next. But says he will be playing some where in 2011.

"I’m going to make a stay for it," Olshansky said. "I’ve been around a long time and I still have many more years to play. I’m hoping it will be here. But if it’s time. If life forces you to (move on), you have to go out there and do it."

The Pokes were 6-10 for a reason last year. JJ went all in the last few years and it eventually came up snake eyes last season. They should be able to at least go 6-10 again even without the players they cut; and hopefully, they will be better in the long run.

Start packing and give ole Wade
a call, at least it's not that far.

I like how Garrett is shaping this roster to his mold. I like Gurode and some of the other guys that have been let go, but that is part of the game. I'm excited to see the young players going forward. This camp for the Cowboys has a college football feel to it. It's like they are retooling the lineup for the next four years.
