Every year, the Cowboys bring in competition for LP Ladouceur. Every year, he keeps his job.
Ladouceur, an unsung and valuable asset, is the team's long snapper for an eighth season. That was assured today when the Cowboys released Charley Hughlett. Hughlett, a rookie from Central Florida, was signed with great expectations. But he was the last of the team's cuts Monday.
Dallas now has the 75 players on its roster. It has to reduce to 53 by Friday afternoon, but Jason Garrett said the Cowboys will make their cuts Thursday since they play their season opener Sept. 5.
"We’ve had a lot of conversations up to this point," Garrett said Monday. "Wednesday night will be a really important night for a lot of these guys, and we’ll make our final evaluations Thursday and really try to get those decisions made by Thursday going into Friday, so Friday can be a true game plan day for us."
