Default Cowboys release Coleman

http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/15751364.htm

IRVING - The Cowboys released veteran safety Marcus Coleman on Friday.

Coleman has been serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. The Cowboys said they would like to re-sign Coleman at a later date, depending on his availability.

The Cowboys had a one-week roster exemption for Coleman, meaning he wouldn’t count against the 53-man roster, but decided to waive him.

Dang...that sucks. If he was playing he was good for at least 2 TDs by us.

Big Bill had laid most of the blame on Watkins for the Cowboys' defensive lapses in Sunday's 38-24 loss at Philadelphia. He was beaten for two long touchdown passes, and had to run across the field to save a third. As the photo here shows, he did that only because he tackled L.J. Smith by his face mask.

"When you give up 185 yards on three plays, that's too many." Parcells said. "You've got to execute the defense."

Davis replaced Watkins against the Eagles in the fourth quarter. They have been splitting time during practice this week, according to Parcells. He also wouldn't rule out using Coleman, who missed the first four games because of a substance-abuse suspension, for Sunday.
"You find out a lot about players when they have adversity," Parcells said of Watkins. "He's doing OK. We'll see if he can start."

The coach said Coleman, "looks like he's in good condition. I'm not sure whether he'll make the roster this week."

Let's not deride Coleman too much. He was a good not great CB thru most of his career. He was a gambler who really shined in the 2004 season. The idea of moving him to FS made perfect sense--play the field, see where you can make plays. Unfortunately his personal issues and lack of faith in the team made the transition to FS a failure. IMO Capers' failure can't be illustrated more than the DB corps. Just because you bring Buchanon in as a rehab project you don't make a vet like Glenn insecure until he has actually been beatin out.

Our secondary decisions have been nightmares. Let McCree go. Let Kenny Wright go. Move Coleman to FS intead of nickle or dime. Let Aaron go. Great-now we have sure tackler after the catch McCleon and stone hands Sanders.

Also has to do with the almight dollar:

Coleman had signed a one-year, $850,000 contract in April and was to have provided the Cowboys veteran depth and flexibility in the secondary. He played in the preseason in nickel and dime packages, and then was suspended before the start of the regular season.
