Yeah I saw the same thing on ESPNews. It is very shocking considering that a few days ago Carter was claiming the starting spot was his. That would mean that Testaverde would be the starter.

ESPN.com news services
Quarterback Quincy Carter will be released from the Dallas Cowboys, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli has learned, and an official announcement is expected this afternoon. Carter, a four-year veteran out of Georgia, did not practice with the team Wednesday. There was no immediate word as to why the Cowboys planned to cut Carter.

Carter, 26, started all 16 games last season, when the Cowboys went 10-6 and got back in the playoffs in head coach Bill Parcells' first year with the club.

Just last week Carter said he expected to be Dallas' starter when the 2004 season opened.

"I wouldn't say it's an open competition," Carter said last Saturday, after the team's first workout. "I'm clearly the starter right now. ... The team knows who their starter is. I'm going to stand firm on that, and I'm going to be their leader."

Indeed, Carter took snaps with the first team when camp opened, and Parcells at first acknowledged that his '03 starter had the advantage.

"He has a leg up on pretty much everybody because he was the guy that played the best and started last year," Parcells told The Associated Press last week. "Obviously I have that in mind. He is in a good position to be improved. And that is what I'm looking for."

However, Parcells has also maintained that no one -- not the incumbent, not a former star like Vinny Testaverde -- is a given in the position. Former New York Yankees player Drew Henson is also competing for the starting spot.

After last season, Parcells gave Carter a list of some things he wanted the quarterback to do during the offseason. Among them was to add muscle, work on certain mechanics and footwork and get better throwing on the run to cut down his high interception total.

Carter added four pounds of muscle, getting to 219 pounds. He's a long way from the pudgy-looking 223-pounder he was when the coach arrived.

Despite the obvious changes, however, it would take time to see if Carter improved on the field the way Parcells expected.

In his first season as the full-time starter -- after splitting the first two seasons with Chad Hutchinson -- Carter threw for 3,302 yards, but had 21 interceptions and 17 touchdowns. He was intercepted at least twice six times.

Thirteen of those interceptions came when he got outside the pocket after a play had broken down.

Carter was a chosen by Dallas in the second round of the 2001 draft.
Heres the article from ESPN.

Its one this to protect Carter, having decent mobility. But Vinny is something completely different.

Who said Vinnie was going to be the starter? You never know. They might stick Henson out there or get somebody else.

Little late to get anybody else with veteran starting experiance. I haven't heard much about Henson, but being a rook I would expect them to go with the vet first.

Default Quincy Carter cut in dallas

Cowboys cut Quincy carter... 12:30pm Wednesday.

I wonder why this was made?

I wonder where Carter will end up. Arizona? San Francisco?

Looks like Vinnie Testaverde is the starting quarterback in big D now.

i'm just loving this. i'm convinced a buddy of mine who is a huge cowboys fan just bought a q carter jersey....and now he has to put it in the closet of shame with other "dopers" like irvin, newton, lett, harper, etc....never to be worn again.

but in talking to that buddy of mine an intresting question arose...is he even talented enough to make the texans roster? i'm thinking NO. i know carter already has played enough to not be eligible for the practice squad but PERHAPS....casserly could find a loop hole to get carter in there. maybe he could hold the ball for field goals? perhaps he could serve as a drug councelor for our players on how not to @*%$ up your life? maybe we could find a new mascot postion for him?

today has been a great day...

He is not good enough to make the Texasn roster. He would have been 3rd string on a lot of NFL rosters and 2nd on a few.


I was listening to the ticket out of Dallas when the news broke and they said there were 3 guys standing in front of them that had just bought Q jerseys few minutes before.

Yada yada yada. It wasn't but a few months ago that Quicy led them to the playoffs, was a 60% passer blah blah blah. Funny how Cowpuke fans were rallying behind not too far back, and now don't even want to associate their backs with his name. Funny how they were selling those jerseys right up until today, even though "he was not good enough to make the Texans rosters"
