The final Dallas Cowboys cuts came on Saturday, Aug. 31, which left the Cowboys with the 53-man roster they will start the 2013 NFL season with. According to the team's official website, the biggest names cut were rookie Alex Tanney and wide receiver Anthony Armstrong.
Alex Tanney made his name thanks to a YouTube video that went viral that showed the quarterback making trick throws. However, he wasn't a gimmick quarterback, holding numerous college records from his collegiate career.
Dallas cut Nick Stephens last week and Tanney got one last chance to show he could stick around, but it wasn't enough to convince Dallas to keep more than two quarterbacks on their opening day roster. Tony Romo and Kyle Orton will be the only two quarterbacks that Dallas carries on their regular roster.
Anthony Armstrong was competing for a spot and played well in the preseason, but with Dallas keeping four tight ends, they didn't have room for Armstrong or Danny Coale on the final roster, cutting both men.
The Dallas receivers in 2013 will be Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley.
Other notable Dallas Cowboys cuts included cornerbacks Sterling Moore and Micah Pellerin, guard Kevin Kowalski and linebacker Brandon Magee.
Dallas also moved safety Matt Johnson and guard Nate Livings to the IR, which means they are out until 2014.
