    Agree 100%. Wish he had some talent to go along with the durability.

    If you don't include Leary, Dunbar, and Beasley, anyway. Then all you have is a starter and two key role players from the actual draft picks. But it only makes sense to count all the college guys who came in from the same group as part of that 2012 class.

    Agreed. He's someone they can develop as a rushman. Found this on a Cardinal website:

    Maranelli and Kiff must have signed off on him being a better fit than Cohen, hence the move. I'm going to trust their judgment on this one. He could be a Selvie type for us. I hope he sticks.

    So the Coale experiment is over let him be free and become the next Amendola.

    I wish one of the beat writers had the nuts to ask Jerry, Stephan or Jason that question.

    makes sense,he seems a better fit for our 4-3 which places more emphasis on pass rush capability.

    Cohen was a nice fit for a few weeks as he knew the defense. Now that we've got Spencer back and Rayford coming up to speed, that's less valuable. We've got room to develop a guy with more rush potential.

    The WR move was interesting. Newsome must have popped in their game prep film review to somebody.

    Maybe because he is a serviceable young backup with room to grow and develop. I am always amazed at people on this forum who decry the lack of development of olinemen and then want to cut any small school player who doesn't start after a couple of years. It doesn't matter what anybody here sees in Arkin, the team must see something or he'd have been gone long ago. According to some, Kowalski was a potential starter and Arkin was a scrub. Who was kept? and who was cut? This is Bernadeau's last season on this team, and maybe Waters' as well. They will draft a guard and Arkin will be the swing guard next year.

    And, more simply: why cut a backup olineman to sign a backup dlineman?

    I don't understand the Arkin hate. He hasn't cost this team any games or ever displayed any bad attitude or done anything detrimental to the team. On the contrary, he has played both guard positions this preseason, and even center all of last preseason, without a word of complaint. He did not show that he was an all-pro, but he wasn't a train wreck either. All I can figure is that he was kept and somebody's "pet cat" was not.

    ....Cohen is basically a space eater........a Shariff Floyd type we passed on in the 1st round.

    I had that exact same question. Looks like Cowboys made a mistake letting him go the first time over Cohen. And Long has yet to show anything, even in preseason.

    Careful ...... many posters here think he should be given 5 years to develop. I'm not one of them.

    Draft picks are scarce resources. It makes perfect sense to analyze how they were allocated.

    Then after that getting Leary etc. on the free market is strong. I never see anyone being negative about the Cowboys when it comes to UDFAs.

    Seriously?

    You can't figure it out?

    It's because the guy simpler can't play and there is no reason he should be on an NFL roster. Despite stubborn,y keeping him on the roster, the team has done anything and everything to avoid playing him.

    He has never set foot on the field for a meaningful NFL snap in his career. In fact, you can probably add up the number of times he's been active on one hand with several fingers to spare.

    Actions speak louder than anything and when those actions include moving your RT to guard to avoid Arkin seeing the field, it tells you all you need to know.

    If the player is of no help to you, he shouldn't be taking up a roster space. He's had more than enough time to develop and for whatever reason you would like to give, he hasn't.

    Time to pull the plug.

    Not when you're evaluating a draft class. Those guys weren't drafted. That draft class sucked.

    And I don't think much of Dunbar or Beasley. I think they're spare parts that won't be on the team in two years.
